"THE WIFE"

The Oscar buzz is already starting for Glenn Close in this film adaption of Meg Wolitzer's novel The Wife. Joan (Glenn Close) and Joe (Jonathan Pryce) remain complements after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man's wife. As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.

DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION

Like Murder by Death before it, Clue (loosely based on the board game) is a spot-on parody of classic murder mysteries, with a star-studded cast of the 80s best comic actors, and featuring not one but three endings (each included at our screening!) Six strangers appear at an old mansion, are given pseudonyms (Col. Mustard, Mrs. White, etc., from the game), and soon, chaos and hilarity ensue! Tim Curry cements the whole thing as the crazed butler, while Martin Mull, Madeline Kahn, Leslie Ann Warren, Christopher Lloyd and even the Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin make appearances. A flop in its day, Clue has since gone on to be a hilarious cult classic!

5OTH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING

"ROSEMARY'S BABY"

Oct. 22, 2018, 7:30 p.m.
ALL SEATS $10.00

DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION

In the heart of New York City, in one of its most high-end apartments, lurks an evil that sent filmgoers into a frenzy fifty years ago. Rosemary's Baby captured America's attention in 1968, a horrifying distraction from one of the most turbulent years in our history. The story of Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow), who moves into The Bradford Apartments with her actor husband Guy (John Cassavetes), only to discover a nightmare world of suicide, cults, and Satanism. At once a disturbing look at motherhood and power, Rosemary's Baby is also simply one of the most entertaining scary movies ever made.

DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION

This early Tim Burton classic unleashed a more-manic-than-usual Michael Keaton as the eponymous demon, and gave Winona Ryder her first major role. The story of a cute married couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) who are killed in a car accident and then try to haunt the awful couple who try and wreck their beloved home, Beetlejuice was a surprise hit, supremely silly and genuinely scary as only Burton films can be.

Stannie and Ollie offer their assistance to Mother Peep, Bo-Peep and Piper, and later enlist an army of wooden soldiers to battle Barnaby's cave-dwelling bogeymen.

WHITE CHRISTMAS FAQS

Q: I have an MPR or Chinook Book 2 for 1 coupon, can I use these for White Christmas?

A: No, since this is a special event we do not accept any 2 for 1 coupons or other discounts.

Q: When does the singer start and when does the movie start and when do I need to be there?

A: The show, which starts with Maud Hixson performing at either 2:00pm or 7:00pm with the movie following immediately after her performance. So you need to be here at the ABSOLUTE LATEST by 2:00pm or 7:00pm because that is when the show officially starts and we do not seat after that.

Q: When does the organist start?

A: The organist will start playing 20 minutes before the start of the show.

Q: When do your doors open?

A: Our doors open an hour and 15 minutes before the start of the shows and we encourage you to arrive early so you can get seated and have plenty of time to get refreshments and relax before the show. We have a pianist playing the lobby piano at 1:15pm and 6:15pm and the Organist starts to perform at 1:45pm and 6:45pm, so there is plenty to keep your and your guests entertained before the show starts.

Q: Is the seating reserved seating?

A: All the seating for these performances is not assigned and is general seating, so the earlier you arrive the better selection of seats you will have, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A LARGE GROUP. Your advance ticket purchase guarantees you a seat at the performance, but with a sold out show there may be a chance, especially if you arrive late, that you may not be able to sit with your guests, so arrive early as refunds are not given if you cannot sit together.

Q: Something has come up and now we are unable to attend, can we get a refund.

A: Refunds are not given on advance ticket sales.
