new management will take over the space and offer big-screen wonderfulness again.

Inglourious Basterds

Must-See Cinema series! See it again before the release of Tarantino’s Django Unchained!

Poster art for Inglourious BasterdsWritten and directed by Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds opens with an extraordinarily tense 20 minute sequence in which Nazi Jew-hunter Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) interrogates the owner of a French farmhouse before slaughtering the family of Jews hiding beneath his floorboards. However, a young woman named Shosanna (Melanie Laurent) narrowly escapes with her life, whereupon she runs away to Paris, changes her name and becomes the proprietress of a cinema, where she hatches a plan to kill the German high command (including Hitler himself) at a prestigious film premiere.

Meanwhile, American Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) and his band of Nazi-scalping Jewish-American ‘Basterds’ get wind of the premiere’s special guests and hatch a plot of their own, aided by British Lieutenant Archie Hickox (Michael Fassbender) and German actress-turned-double-agent Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger). However, the crafty Colonel Landa is hot on the Basterds’ trail – will he figure out the plot in time?
