The Artist
Sunday, February 26, 2012

Playing 2:30 and 4:45 pm

2011/France/PG-13/100 min
Director: Michel Hazanavicius
Cast: Jean Dujardin, Berenice Bejo, John Goodman, James Cromwell, Penelope Ann Miller, Missi Pyle

Nominated for 10 Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress! Winner, Golden Globe Best Picture! Top Ten List of Over 200 Movie Critics! 97% at Rotten Tomatoes!
We are thrilled to bring to the State Theatre the movie phenomenon of the year, an inventive, delightful, comedic, zesty romance set during the twilight of Hollywood’s silent era and filmed on location at numerous classic Hollywood locations. “The Artist” is a surefire crowdpleaser that tells the story of the entertwined destinies of a charismatic movie superstar confronting the new world of talking pictures, and a rising ingénue on her way to the top. Also starring John Goodman and James Cromwell, with an ensemble cast that hasn’t been matched in ages, this great film is “a rocket to the moon fueled by unadulterated joy and pure imagination” (Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune). “Everyone” is saying it will win Best Picture at the Oscars on February 26 — what do you think?

“Pure joy. Wildly entertaining, with a big generous heart.”
- IndieWire

“The most surprising and delightful film of 2011.”
- Tom Long, Detroit News

“A smash hit, a valentine to the movies I promise you will cherish.”
- Rex Reed, New York Observer

“Encapsulates everything we go to movies for: action, laughs, tears and a chance to get lost in another world.”
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“So wonderful that the audience applauds everyone, including Uggie the dog.”
- The New York Observer

“A delightful inventive comedy, and a zesty romance to leave audiences glowing. The Best Movie of the Year.”
- Richard Corliss, Time

“One of the most entertaining films in many a moon, a film that charms.”
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“The delighted gasps in the theater will make you glad you took a chance on ‘The Artist.’”
- Bob Mondello, NPR

“In many ways – in all ways – ‘The Artist’ is a profound achievement.”
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
