ON THE BASIS OF SEX Opens Today

Good Morning From Asbury Park!

ON THE BASIS OF SEX: You came to the ShowRoom for the acclaimed documentary RBG, now come back for the story of Ruth Bader Ginsberg‘s early years!  Starring Academy Award nominee Felicity Jonesas RBG herself, ON THE BASIS OF SEX tells the story of RBG’s rise to prominence. From the struggles with her husband Martin’s cancer, to her first defining case. Co-starring Golden Globe nominee Armie Hammer, and from director Mimi Leder. Mimi Leder has crafted a solid biopic – not just for the modern era, but for future generations who will carry on the torch of Ginsburg’s wisdom, tenacity, and humanity.” – Courtney Howard, Fresh Fiction.  LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER

BEN IS BACK: is held over another week. Our audiences are coming out of the theater completely staggered by this deeply effecting addiction drama. Academy Award winner Julia Roberts delivers a performance that may put her on track for her 5th nomination, and potential second win. She is joined by fellow Academy Award nominee Lucas Hedges, who continues his marathon year of powerful performances. “Always underplayed, but never more than a millisecond from losing his grip, Hedges’ performance exists in the narrow space between coming back for a day, and being gone forever.” – David Ehrlich, IndieWire. LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER.

FREE SOLO: Recently shortlisted for Best Documentary Feature for the upcoming Academy Awards, Free Solo remains at The ShowRoom Cinema for another week. The awe inspiring documentary tells the story of Alex Honnold, a man that decides to “free solo” climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park; in other words, climb the rock without any ropes or equipment. The film has also just been nominated for the BAFTA for Best Documentary. “Free Solo doesn’t explore this history too deeply, but it does at least offer an evocative glimpse of what forces, both of nature and nurture, might conspire to produce such high-stakes daring.” – Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair   LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER

REMEMBERING THE BEACH CINEMA:  As you know, we’ve acquired the BEACH CINEMA in neighboring Bradley Beach and we are currently renovating and updating the building. LATEST NEWS – a new roof has just been added (an unexpected necessity). We’ve just received our permits, so we’re going to start construction next week. Many of you attended a movie throughout the long history of the cinema and we’d like to hear from you. Do you have a favorite memory of the Beach Cinema? Let us know. Write us at The ShowRoom Cinema.

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:   AT ETERNITY’S GATE;  IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK;  THE OSCAR NOMINATED SHORTS; STAN AND OLLIE; COLD WAR; MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS.

HAVE A GREAT DAY AND THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE SHOWROOM CINEMAS.
