The Black & Beautiful Film Festival 2013

We here at Central Cinema want to give a big shout out to everyone who came out to support The Black & Beautiful Film Festival this past week. Franklin High School Senior, Mia Roberson, did an amazing job curating the festival and doing introducing for all four films that played for her Senior Project.  Films included in the festivals were an opening night screening of SHAFT ’71 and two feature runs with GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER? and JACKIE BROWN. She closed the festival last night with THE WIZ.

We wish Mia Roberson the best in her endeavors as she heads to college this fall. It was a pleasure working with such a talented and bright young adult.

Memorial Day Weekend and BEYOND!

We are excited to present two great movies that will take you right into enemy territory! First up is STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT at 7:00pm. This is the one with the Borg Queen that seduces Data to the dark side. The Borg Queen is straight up out of MJ’s short film, Captain EO, but still is amazing. Patrick Stewart reportedly stated at the last Comic-Con that FIRST CONTACT was his favorite movie in the series. Naturally. We are pleased to bring this Trekkie delight to Central Cinema for a full week! Catch this Memorial Day Weekend or catch it on a weeknight when you find yourself longing for Levar Burton action!

Tickets $6 advance/ $8 day of show

Dates of Showtimes:

Friday May 24th – Sunday May 26th at 7:00pm & Tuesday May 28th – Wednesday May 29th at 7:00pm

This week we start one of the freshest and on target teen flicks of the 00’s. MEAN GIRLS is playing for a full week and we can’t wait to see what happens when we unleash this film onto the big screen.

We aren’t done with you yet! The Borg Queen, Mean Girls and even Supergirl are no match for our very own hero…….ine.

WAXIE MOON IN FALLEN JEWEL is back for it’s monthly screening. Waxie Moon just won’t quit. If you have seen the movie before, it is time to revisit it, because we promise you missed 50% of the jokes on the last viewing! If you haven’t seen it, then you MUST! It is clever, kooky and downright puzzling. But all in a good way! With musical numbers and one flawless costume after another, WAXIE MOON IN FALLEN JEWEL takes taste and virtue to a whole new level.

The crowds have been going nuts at the screenings and there has been one amazing performance after another at the screenings. Wes Hurley is usually on hand in the audience to field questions, speculations and hugs! Call up your girls! Call up your boyz! You can even bring your Mom to it (we suggest a nice FULL bottle of wine), but come see it!

Tickets are $12 all seats

Showtime:

Thursday May 30th at 8:00pm

Believe in sunshine and wear your shades at Central Cinema this weekend!

We have a weekend full of fancy footwork and Roddy Piper as we present the not soggy classic, SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN and John Carpenter’s masterpiece, THEY LIVE for 3 NIGHTS ONLY!

I believe in sunshine.

I believe in sunshine.

“Here’s one thing I learned from the movies!”
When the talkies take over Hollywood, the silent film industry is shaken. Screen legend Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) has no trouble adjusting. But what is his vocally-impared co-starlet Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) to do? Why, find a stand-in, of course! Kelley and Stanley Donen co-directed this legendary musical film which features Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor. Filled with the songs you love (“Make ‘Em Laugh”, “Good Morning”, “Singin’ In the Rain”), the stunning centerpiece “Broadway Rhythm”, and an unforgettable appearance from Cyd Charisse, SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN looks and sounds better than ever.
Showtimes: Friday April 12th at 7:00pm. Sunday April 14th at 7:00pm. Monday April 15th at 7:00pm.
Tickets are $6 in advance/ $8 day of show
I'm all outta bubblegum.

I’m all outta bubblegum.

“I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I’m all out of bubble gum”.

Is John Carpenter’s THEY LIVE a hilarious send up of 50s paranoia sci-fi, or a full on 80s action movie (complete with tough guy star), or a serious social commentary? Answer: Yes! It is all of these – and a helluva lot of fun on top of that. Wrestling legend Roddy Piper (aka “Rowdy”) is Nada, a hardworking drifter who finds a pair of sunglasses that somehow allow him to see the great Reagan conspiracy – that aliens are among us and secretly brainwash us with messages like “Obey” and “No Independent Thought”. Once Nada knows the truth he has no choice but to kick some alien ass and chew bubblegum – and he’s all out of bubblegum. And let’s not forget the most amazing/ridiculous mano-a-mano fight scene in the history of cinema!
NOTE: Get there early for a pre-show featuring classic WWF matches with Roddy Piper vs. Mr. T & Roddy Piper vs. Hulk Hogan!
SHOWTIMES: Friday April 12th at 9:30pm. Saturday April 14th at 9:30pm. Monday April 15th at 9:30pm.
Tickets are $6 advance/ $8 day of show
ALSO!
This Saturday The BoneBat “Comedy of Horrors” Film Fest throws it’s  annual evening of giggles & gore, hosted by Steve and Gord of The BoneBat Show!

 

It's funny cuz it's scary.

It’s funny cuz it’s scary.

Starting This Friday!

We have two stellar movies that are starting at Central Cinema this week!

Friday and Saturday night at 7:30pm is NIGHT OF THE HUNTER.*
$6 advance/ $8 day of show

NightOfHunter

“Get your state troopers out here. I got something trapped in my barn.”

The 1955 film, NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, is a nightmarish journey into the darkness of a man’s soul and the light that shines from one woman’s spirit. Famed actor, Charles Laughton, directed only one film and if you are going to only direct one film it should be as good as NIGHT OF THE HUNTER!

With a cast led by Robert Mitchum as a preacher who isn’t as God lovin’ as he pretends and Lillian Gish as a widow out to protect the innocent, NIGHT OF THE HUNTER turns into a deadly cat and mouse game of startlingly results.

With Shelley Winters as the put upon mother of two, NIGHT OF THE HUNTER is a classy thriller that remains timeless and still absolutely horrifying.

OF NOTE:
This was also Sally Jane Bruce’s only film. And like Laughton, she gives it her all as Little Pearl Harper!
Sally-Jane-Bruce-The-Night-of-the-Hunter.6

This Friday and Saturday at 9:30pm.*
Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN
$6 advance/ $8 day of show

YTuMamaTambien
“Life is like the foam of the sea. You must dive into it.”

Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN (AND YOUR MOTHER TOO!) is a dream road trip! Sex, drugs, more sex and having to grow up all await two best friends who hitch a ride with a sexy Maribel Verdu to a secluded beach called Boca del Cielo, translated as Heaven’s Mouth. The problem now is that no beach really exist and two boys have fallen head over heels in love with their arousing travel companion. Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN is an unrated lusty tale of coming of age and having to remember that what happens at the pool stays at the pool.

This groundbreaking and mesmerizing film launched the Hollywood careers of not only the two leads, Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, but also that of the director, Alfonso Cuaron.

So take a break from the overcast Seattle weather and travel south of the border for a road trip you will never forget!

ALSO THIS WEEKEND!
ONE NIGHT ONLY!
ST. PATRICK’S DAY SCREENING!
LEPRECHAUN 2 at 7:00pm & 9:30pm

Warwick Davis is back as the Leprechaun with a mean streak and Shevonne Durkin is the unlucky lady of his desires!
