Good Morning From Asbury Park!

STAN AND OLLIE: The famous comedy duo, Laurel & Hardymakes their way to The ShowRoom Cinema Asbury Park. This biopic begins in 1953, with the legendary duo embarking on a grueling tour of music halls around the UK and Ireland as their career is on the way out. Actor Steve Cooganwas nominated for a BAFTA for his role as Stan Laurel, while John C. Reillywas nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor, Musical or Comedy for his portrayal of Oliver Hardy. “Avoiding tedious biopic tropes that focus on how well-known people rose to fame, Stan and Ollie is instead more interested in endings. It’s a film about saying goodbye.” Chris EvangelistaSlashFilm.  LEARN MORE AND WATCH THE TRAILER

THE SHOWROOM CINEMA BRADLEY BEACH:  Renovations continue at our newly acquired theater in Bradley Beach, NJ. We are as excited to get it open as you are! LATEST NEWS – if you’ve ever done a renovation, you can appreciate how unpredictable it can be to make headway. At every turn we discover a new – challenge. After finding out the ENTIRE roof needed replacing, when we started working on an interior section of floor, we discovered 1) a hidden stairway beneath the floor that went nowhere and 2) a support system of beams that really didn’t . . . . support much. So we have no choice but to add a new support system that we hadn’t counted on. Stay tuned.

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; COLD WAR; MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS.

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