Congratulations to our Steve McQueen Look-Alike Contest winner, Bryan Bickhart! You'll have a chance to see Bryan channel Steve McQeen during BlobFest weekend, July 11- 13.
Don't make the same mistake I made, and let yourself be swayed too much by the poster for Son of Rambow, our feature film starting tomorrow, Friday. Based on the poster alone, I wanted to write the film off as a poorly conceptualized children's movie. Instead, the film is an ode to the joys of childhood freedom (even in the face of an oppressive family) and the joys of filmmaking. It's a unique premise for a coming of age story — two young boys remake the Stallone "classic" First Blood during a 80's era summer in England — and now I can't wait to see it.
Our classic this Sunday is the last of our Great Escape films, and a bit of a divergence from the others — we're showing Stir Crazy, starring Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor; and directed by Sidney Poitier! If you need some laughs this weekend, this should do it.
Lastly, we will be open on July 4th this year. We're screening Iron Man at 7:30pm and promise to get you out in time to see the fireworks! Come early that evening, at 7pm, for the unveiling of our Blob plaque in the balcony.
Thanks for your support and we'll see you at the theatre!
