It's possible that, after the pandemic has been brought under control,
new management will take over the space and offer big-screen wonderfulness again.

The building is being maintained, with all its facilities and equipment intact,

The Ides Of March

From the director of "Good Night And Good Luck"


Poster art for The Ides Of MarchThe Ides Of March is a nimble adaptation of Beau Willimon’s stage play Farragut North, about the ideological deflowering of a campaign strategist (Ryan Gosling) as he ushers a hopey-changey Democratic governor (Clooney) through the Ohio presidential primary.
The plot’s a Mamet-y mixture of betrayal, disillusionment and high-stakes brinksmanship, but it’s performed by a cast working at peak efficiency. Clooney, Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood and Philip Seymour Hoffman are so good, and so good together, that I didn’t mind being a step ahead of their characters throughout the entire running time.
