IN THE NEWS: You may have heard by now that THE SHOWROOM CINEMA is preparing to sign the papers to purchase THE BEACH CINEMA in Bradley Beach. We’ve been exploring various locations to extend THE SHOWROOM CINEMA brand and THE BEACH CINEMA is our first opportunity to do so. If you’re unfamiliar with this retro, single screen cinema in our neighboring town, it has a history back to vaudeville and we are excited to bring it into the family. There is lots to be done and we plan to have it back up and running as soon as possible while we continue the upgrades, keep watching this site for news and progress. Thank you for all your positive thoughts and for now, we’ll continue see you in Asbury Park. It is a glorious time to stroll the streets enjoying the fresh air, fantastic restaurants, the best shopping and of course, new movies every week.
SCREENING THIS WEEK
THE OLD MAN & THE GUN opens Friday and Robert Redford dominates in this deft telling of a true story. Sissy Spacek compliments his role as the woman who keeps him in her heart, Casey Affleck, the detective who hunts him. Don’t miss the beginning, as David Nusair from Reel Film Reviews notes, “THE OLD MAN & THE GUN kicks off with an almost unreasonably charming sequence…” LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER.
MID90’S is Jonah Hill’s premiere, written and directed by him, focusing on coming of age in the 90’s. Catch him on everybody’s couch talking it up. Peter Howell of the Toronto Star says, “It just observes, as young rebel movies have since the down of cinema, that life is something that happens while you’re busy trying to skate around it. LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER.
FREE SOLO continues and you can bring your kids to watch the rock climber, Alex Honnold, who does El Capitan without a rope. A documentary to test your ability to watch, compliments of world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, what most cannot even fathom. Daniel Barnes from the Sacramento News & Review believes “More than other recent documentaries about daredevils, FREE SOLO succeeds in penetrating Honnold’s shell, showing us why he would risk his life rather than simply celebrating his thirst for danger.” LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER.

THE DOORS LIVE AT THE BOWL ’68 On July 5th, 1968, The Doors took to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl for a concert that has since passed into legend.

HORROR CHURCH presents THE WOLF MAN: Another classic in our series of originals made for the big screen that brought out the best and the beast in all of us.
