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.

THIS SCREENING IS SOLD OUT

35MM PRESENTATION

What is poor Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) to do when he accidentally lands back in time to the 1950s and his own mother falls in love with him? Try and set her up with his dad, of course! One of the biggest hits of the 80s, and a beloved classic that seems to have stepped out of Hollywood's Golden Era, Back to the Future helped cement Michael J. Fox's stardom, made Crispin Glover's career, turned the clunky DeLorean into a time machine, and forever put the words "flux capacitor" in people's minds.

CHRISTOPHER MIHM PRESENTS

"GUNS OF THE APOCALYPSE"

Sept. 26, 2018, 7:30 p.m.
ALL SEATS $10.00

Join us for the world premiere of local writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's 13th feature film, Guns of The Apocalypse! Made in Minnesota, this retro-styled "post-apocalyptic-spaghetti-Midwestern" follows a man with no name who is forced into a world of danger and bloodshed after he saves a scientist and a gifted child from a horde of radiation-scarred mutants. Though he would prefer to stay hidden until he can escape to a new life, something about the child, and the murderous "Death Dealers" hunting her, makes him realize he has no choice but to protect her or risk being responsible for the potential extinction of the human race!

Enjoy an evening of drive-in cinema-inspired fun complete with hand-picked, era-appropriate newsreels, classic trailers, appearances by most of the cast and crew, autographs, photo opportunities with creatures from the film, a silent auction and more! DVDs, posters and other merchandise will be on sale!

35MM PRESENTATION

Eager to capitalize on the huge success of TV's The Andy Griffith Show, Universal cast Don Knotts in this Mayberry-esque ghost story/murder mystery that charmed audiences even as it provided genuine thrills. Poor typesetter Luther Heggs (Knotts) wants to be a reporter, and agrees to spend the night in an abandoned mansion where, 20 years earlier, a series of brutal murders occurred. But when he reports about the mysterious goings-on, will the town believe him? Penned by some of the best Andy Griffith screenwriters, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken proved to be an enormous success that has inexplicably been somewhat forgotten in the ensuing years. Don't miss this rare 35mm screening!

NEW DIGITAL RESTORATION

"THE OLD DARK HOUSE"

Oct. 8, 2018, 7:30 p.m.
ALL SEATS $10.00

Get Tickets

DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION

From classic horror director James Whale (Frankenstein) comes a dark, terrifying... and utterly zany comedy/horror hybrid. Two sets of couples, a husband and wife team and a upper class twit and his chorus girl date, seek shelter in a most grim mansion, staffed by cackling old ladies and a Boris Karloff sporting a giant scar and a menacing look that will send shivers up your spine. Genuinely frightening, The Old Dark House manages to be a send up of the films that made its director famous, while crafting new and exciting methods of gothic horror. Newly restored and rarely seen in cinemas, The Old Dark House is the perfect October treat.

35MM PRESENTATION

Usually, the third installment of a comedy series isn't the best, but Topper Returns may outdo even the original for gut-busting laughs. Joan Blondell is perfect as a sexy, wisecracking ghost who demands that poor Roland Young (reprising his role as Topper) investigate her murder in a haunted house with more trapdoors than, well, regular doors! Double-entendres, dopey cops, bodies tumbling through space and poor, baffled Topper make this rare 35mm screening a must-see!

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"

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.

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.

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

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.
