Schedule-wise, we’ve got an odd week coming. On Friday, we will open the Sundance hit MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE. We’ll also hold both MARGIN CALL and TAKE SHELTER…but only for part of the week. On Wednesday (Nov. 23) we will open THE DESCENDANTS…but I’ll wait until next week’s update to tell you lots more about that film (if you can’t wait, check out the official site).
Synopsis for MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE: “MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE is a powerful psychological thriller starring Elizabeth Olsen as Martha, a young woman rapidly unraveling amidst her attempt to reclaim a normal life after fleeing from a cult and its charismatic leader. Seeking help from her estranged older sister Lucy and brother-in-law, Martha is unable and unwilling to reveal the truth about her disappearance. When her memories trigger a chilling paranoia that her former cult could still be pursuing her, the line between Martha’s reality and delusion begins to blur.” (Fox Searchlight) I had the chance to briefly speak with Elizabeth Olsen at this year’s Toronto Film Festival. She was quite approachable and grounded, but I can tell that she’s going to be a big star. Her performance in this film is fantastic! Many people are calling the film “This year’s WINTER’S BONE.” Click this LINK to visit the film’s official website.
And don’t forget that we’ll be hosting holiday films on Saturdays in December…sponsored by The Downtown Dayton Partnership, DP&L and THE NEON. The movies begin at noon and are free for children 12 and under; other tickets are only $2 each. On December 3, we will play MIRACLE ON 34th STREET (original 1947 version). On December 10 – POLAR EXPRESS. And lastly, on December 17, we will play A CHRISTMAS STORY. All of these movies will be presented via digital video projection.
Here’s some great news. THE ARTIST, an absolutely delightful film, has been scheduled to open exclusively at THE NEON on December 25! If you watch CBS Sunday Morning, you more than likely saw the segment this past weekend. If you don’t know anything about the film, check out the trailer for this black & white treat.
Hope to see you very soon,
