I hope you’re making plans to see TAKE SHELTER this weekend (read the DMM Film Review here). This Ohio-made film was one of my absolute favorites from this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (I screened 34 films over the course of 9 days), and it has been garnering awards and great reviews around the world. As a special treat, producer Tyler Davidson will be joining us for Q&As following a few screenings…and there’s no additional charge for these tickets (which are on sale now at our box office). Showtimes with Q&As are noted below.
Thursday will be your last chance to see the charming French film with Gerard Depardieu and Gisele Casadesus – MY AFTERNOONS WITH MARGUERITTE. Hurry down if you still need to see it. Though audiences are loving this film, it hasn’t done well enough to stick around.
Synopsis for TAKE SHELTER: “Curtis LaForche lives in a small town in Ohio with his wife, Samantha, and daughter, Hannah, a six-year-old deaf girl. When Curtis begins to have terrifying dreams, he keeps the visions to himself, channeling his anxiety into obsessively building a storm shelter in his backyard. His seemingly inexplicable behavior concerns and confounds those closest to him, but the resulting strain on his marriage and tension within his community can’t compare with Curtis’s privately held fear of what his dreams may truly signify.” (Sony Pictures Classics) Visit the film’s official website.

We’ve already booked the perfect film for Thanksgiving weekend. Alexander Payne’s new film THE DESCENDANTS (starring George Clooney) is fantastic! In fact, I think it’s Payne’s best film yet. Thanksgiving weekend is a crucial movie-going weekend for cinemas…and we hope you’ll make plans to see this great film with us! To find out more about the film, visit the official site.
