“Hey! Hey! Her head don’t come off!”
Teenage Sarah, played by the ever luminous Jennifer Connelly, gets a crash course in growing up when her fantasy world overtakes her reality. Having accidentally called upon the goblin king to take her little bro, Toby, she now must travel through the LABYRINTH, battling stinky bogs and talking walls, all while making unlikely friends (sprouted from the mind of Jim Henson). Can she defeat the the grandest goblin diva, David Bowie, who sports a BIGGEST cod piece you will ever see in a kids movie? DANCE MAGIC DANCE!

“Water off a duck’s back. Water off a duck’s back.”
Okay, we here at Central Cinema love HOWARD THE DUCK. We are not ashamed to admit it. It is not for the faint of heart or the easily disturbed, but if you are strong enough to make it through, you will be a stronger movie patron!
From the screenwriter of Temple Of Doom and producer George Lucas comes one quackers of a motion picture! Based on the Marvel Comic of the same name, the live action version of the fowl mouthed and bad ass HOWARD THE DUCK managed to not only become one of the most notoriously awful films, but it emotionally damaged an entire generation.HOWARD THE DUCK is a wise cracking nightmare who is forced to Earth to stop an alien invader. He manages to blend in nicely and gets to have his feathers ruffled by a modern girl played by Lea Thompson. The special effects range from outstanding to downright pathetic. The storyline is borderline bestially and you can’t take your eyes of off Howard’s bill. HOWARD THE DUCK is a loud, rude and completely entertaining mess of a movie. You will leave quackers. We promise.
We are pleased to present HOWARD THE DUCK in QuackersVision. With each ticket purchased you will receive your very own Quacker to use as the movie
plays!**Available while supplies last!
And if that wasn’t enough, we are screening HOWARD THE DUCK in HeckleVsion for the Monday screening AND the final screening on Wednesday will be part of our 99 cent movie series!

CANCELLED! For one night only our film series, HIGH ADVENTURE, presents the John Carpenter classic ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK!
ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK
Thursday May 2 at 8:00pm
So we just got the bummer news from Rialto Pictures that the planned screening of Escape From New York clashes with their nationwide re-release in DCS which starts Friday. We love Rialto’s catalog and they are good to work with so it is just making us even more itchy to get our dream DCS upgrade rolling faster. DCS is really expensive to install but this is the summer that all Art House cinemas go Digital or go home. We’ll be launching our fundraising efforts at a big party in June. We want to stay in the game bringing you all the fun movies. It’s time for an upgrade cycle at Central Cinema and we are getting ready to go Big. Stay tuned movie fans…
High Adventure is a series of films that are great all by themselves. If you have a couple of drinks, they are even better. AND they are even better if…..well there is a reason we call it HIGH ADVENTURE.
“Call me Snake.”In 1997, the crime rate in the United States has risen to four hundred percent. The once great city of New York has become the one maximum security prison for the entire country. The rules are simple: once you go in, you don’t come out. John Carpenter’s futurist vision, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, is one of the best sci/fi action movies ever made! Snake Plissken, played by Kurt Russell, is summoned to rescue the president and sets in motion a chain of events that will change the landscape of America forever. Lots of stuff gets blown up and Plissken proves if you can make it out of New York you can make it out of anywhere!
