Argo
Friday, March 1, 2013

Playing at 1:00, 3:40, 6:20, 9:00 pm

2012/USA/R/120 min
Director: Ben Affleck
Cast: Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston and John Goodman

Based on true events, “Argo” chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, in an event which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

“Both spellbinding and surprisingly funny.”
-Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“The film is a whopper of a tale”
-Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“It’s a well-told story that’s timely, topical and thoroughly entertaining.”
-Rafer Guzman, Newsday

“It’s serious and substantive, an ingeniously written and executed drama fashioned from a fascinating, little-known chapter of recent history.”
-Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“Fusing suspense and humor in a political thriller is a tricky prospect, but Argo is more than up to the task.”
-Claudia Puig, USA Today

Labyrinth
Friday, March 1, 2013

Playing Friday, March 1 – 11:30 pm – Friday Night Flicks – Tickets $3 or 2 for $5

1986/UK/USA/PG/101 min
Director: Jim Henson
Cast: Jennifer Connelly, David Bowie, Toby Froud

George Lucas produced and Jim Henson directed this gothic fantasy which pits living and breathing actors Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie (who, along with Trevor Jones, provides the film’s music) against a motley collection of Muppet monsters. The film centers upon teenage Sarah (Connelly), who lives in a fantasy world of myth and magic, evil spells, and wondrous enchantment. She is baby-sitting her little brother when she cavalierly wishes that goblins would take him away. She gets her wish, and a coterie of goblins abduct him. She then encounters Jareth (David Bowie), the ruler of a mystical world one step removed from reality. He tells Sarah that the only way to get her brother back is to find her way through a M.C. Escher-like labyrinth and find the castle at the center. As she makes her way through the maze, she faces a number of horrific challenges (like the Bog of Eternal Stench) before she finds her way to the gravity-defying castle, where her brother is being held by the evil goblins.
