The #1 Theatre in Monmouth County Is the #1 Theatre for Golden Globe Winners and Oscar Nominees, with an Expanded Schedule for the coming week.
THE POST, I, TONYA and LADY BIRD were nominated for a combined total of 13 Golden Globe Awards and took home 3. In addition to countless other award nominations, and inclusion on multiple ten-best lists, the 3 films are on the short list for Academy Award nominations, which will be announced on January 23rd.
To accommodate the eager audiences we are anticipating for these fine motion pictures, we have created an awards-centric EXPANDED SCHEDULE, with earlier screenings added throughout the week. That said, buy your tickets in advance when possible, either at the box office or on our website, particularly on the weekend. We’ve experienced many sell-outs over the past few weeks and there is nothing we hate more than turning away disappointed film fans in the middle of awards season. Buy early, online or come mid-week and see them all.
Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in THE POST, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) as they race to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets. Nominated for 6 Golden Globes, it won the AFI Award for Movie of the Year. This is the first time Hanks and Streep appear together on the big screen. Don’t miss this one. LEARN MORE.
“Shot and edited by Spielberg and his team in less than six months, ‘The Post’ finds the master filmmaker at his most thrillingly supple and intuitive.” – Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
I, TONYA is the darkly comedic tale of American figure skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her association with an infamous, ill conceived and worse executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan has forever defined her legacy. The Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture went to Allison Janney for her ice-cold portrayal of Tonya’s mother. Directed by Craig Gillespie. Many of you have been waiting for this one. LEARN MORE.
“This is a feel-real film, a sharp-witted, tough-minded biopic about Tonya Harding, the 1991 U.S. figure skating champion and two-time Olympian who skated rinks around most of her rivals but never became America’s sweetheart.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
Now in its 8th week here at The ShowRoom Cinema, LADY BIRD is the story of a spirited teenager and her loving but prickly mother. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, it is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home. Written and directed by Greta Gerwig, it was named Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globe Awards and earned a Globe for star Saoirse Ronan as Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. THE SHOWROOM CINEMA is one of the few theaters still screening this film. LEARN MORE.
“It navigates the absurdities and struggles of the transition into adulthood while striking an excellent balance between enjoyable quirk and touching emotion. – Brian Truitt, USA Today
Say you saw it first: Join us as The New York Film Critics Series returns in February with a pre-release screening of PERMISSION, a subversive, feminist, romantic comedy that tells the story of a couple who take a big risk to trust each other. Anna (Rebecca Hall) and Will (Dan Stevens), were each other’s first every-things: first kiss, first love, first and only relationship. An ill-timed joke prompts Anna to propose that they try opening their relationship as a sexual experiment. Together, they venture out of the purely monogamous boundaries of their relationship and, along the way, evolve. Also starring Gina Gershon, Francois Arnaud, David Joseph Craig, Morgan Spector, and Jason Sudeikis.
The screening will be followed by a live-on-tape Q&A with star/producer Rebecca Hall, director Brian Crano, and stars Dan Stevens, and François Arnaud. Hosted by Peter Travers of Rolling Stone Magazine. ONE NIGHT ONLY, Monday, February 5th at 7:30 PM. TICKETS AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITE.
OSCAR-NOMINATED SHORT FILMS: This ever-popular series returns in February, featuring the year’s most spectacular short films across Live Action, Animation and Documentary. The 2018 Oscar Nominated Short Films will be released in theaters on February 9th, giving you the opportunity to see the nominated films before the Oscar Awards ceremony on March 4th.
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 please help support our theater by seeing them with us: IN THE FADE, IN BETWEEN, OSCAR SHORTS LIVE ACTION – ANIMATION – DOCUMENTARY, A FANTASTIC WOMAN, MOLLY’S GAME, BPM, GOD’S OWN COUNTRY, THE SHAPE OF WATER, PHANTOM THREAD.
