ST. VINCENT – Advance screenings

112 min | PG13
Bill Murray is a singularly unlikely role model for an impressionable youth in ST. VINCENT, the feature debut from filmmaker Theodore Melfi. Forced to work long hours, single mother Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) has no choice but to leave her son in the care of their new neighbor, a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. As Vincent takes Oliver along his daily routine — the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar — their odd friendship blossoms and Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.

THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH – Hitchcocktober

PG  |  2 hours 0 minutes 

The debate still rages as to whether Alfred Hitchcock’s 1956 remake of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH is superior to his own original 1934 version. This version features more stars, a lusher budget, and the plaintive music of Bernard Herrmann. American tourists James Stewart and Doris Day are witness to the street killing of a Frenchman they’ve recently befriended. Before breathing his last, the murder victim whispers a secret to Stewart. Stewart knows that a political assassination will occur during a concert at London’s Albert Hall, but his son has been kidnapped to keep him from telling the police.
