Our new feature film this week is A Most Wanted Man, starring the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Very much a throwback to the type of movies Hollywood used to make, the movie is that rare breed of contemporary film; a stylish, sophisticated thriller for an intelligent adult audience. Tonight is your last chance to see The Hundred-Foot Journey at 7:30.

Following our feature film Friday night, we will screen our FFFN film, Psycho 2. After twenty-two years of psychiatric care, Norman Bates (reprised by Anthony Hopkins) attempts to return to a life of solitude; but the specters of his crimes — and his mother — continue to haunt him. Vera Miles also reprises her role from Psycho as Lila Loomis.

Tickets are on sale now for TEDxPhoenixville 2014, Saturday, Sep 27, 10AM. This year’s theme is Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll – it’s not what you think! Join us for a great day of talks and entertainment! Tickets may be purchased online here.

Our Classic film series this month focuses on conspiracy. Our first film is Seven Days in May. An unpopular U.S. President manages to get a nuclear disarmament treaty through the Senate, but finds that General Scott, the wildly popular head of the Joint Chiefs and certain presidential candidate in two years, is not planning to wait. Jiggs Casey, a Marine Colonel, goes to the president with the information and a web of intrigue begins with each side unsure of who can be trusted. The film stars Burt Lancaster (General Scott), Kirk Douglas (Colonel Casey), and Fredric March (President Lyman).
