Can You Ever Forgive Me, Wildlife & Border on screen

Good Morning From Asbury Park!


We’ve been fortunate to present a crowd-pleasing 3 week lineup of films and starting today, we’re able to swap them out with three new brilliant movies to come see once you’ve recovered from the holiday.

CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?: Finally making its way to The Showroom Cinema, Can You Ever Forgive Me? Is the story of washed-up biographer Lee Israel who turns to forgery just to make ends meet. The movie (directed by, written by, and starring women!) sees Melissa McCarthy making a dramatic turn, and one that is getting a lot of Academy Awards buzz. “McCarthy is a luminous comedian, but she has long demonstrated a gift with material that has a little more bite, and Israel is an ideal fit for the actress at this point in her career.” David Sims, The Atlantic. LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER.

WILDLIFE: Another sure-to-be powerhouse in the upcoming awards season makes its way to The Showroom. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan, Wildlife is a story about a family on the brink. When Jerry suddenly loses his job, he leaves his family behind to fight a wildfire on the Montana/Canada border, leaving his wife and 14 year old son behind to fend for themselves. Can the family survive the strain? “’Wildlife’ is a small thing, and that modesty can feel at odds with the magnificence of its landscapes, or the monumental quality quality of the characters that pass through them.” David Ehrlich, IndieWire. LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER.

BORDER: Now we step away from mainstream, awards hopefuls towards a film that is a little off the beaten path. After collecting awards at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, Border makes its way to Asbury Park. A Swedish film, it tells the story of Tina, an introverted customs officer that has a unique ability; she can smell fear and guilt. But while taking a walk through the woods, Tina has a chance encounter with an peculiar traveler that completely recontextualizes her life. “Ultimately, Border blends genres with an alarming boldness and breathtaking tenderness to tell a tale that will shock and awe you.” Kristy Puchko, Riot Material. LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER.



THE NEW YORK FILM CRITICS pre-release screening of THE MERCY – December 6th @ 7:30P. Yachtsman Donald Crowhurst’s disastrous attempt to win the 1968 Golden Globe Race ends up with him creating an outrageous account of traveling the world alone by sea.  Starring Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz. Includes a post-film live on tape talkback with star Colin Firth. LEARN MORE AND PURCHASE TICKETS.


FUTURE FILMS WE ARE ANTICIPATING: Movies listed as “Coming Soon” are films The ShowRoom Cinema would like to present and is actively trying to book. However, we don’t always know if or when we will be able to actually get them from distributors. We set showtimes on a week-by-week basis and will announce them as soon as we can confirm them. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We look forward to bringing these films to THE SHOWROOM CINEMA and want you to know how much you support our theater by seeing them with us:    WELCOME TO MARWEN;  ON THE BASIS OF SEX; AT ETERNITY’S GATE;  IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK; MARIA BY CALLAS; NYFCS:MERCY; GREEN BOOK.
