Greet the New Year with one of our 3 Golden Globe nominated films: CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, THE DISASTER ARTIST and LADY BIRD. We are open both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day with an expanded schedule today, Friday, through Monday. And downtown parking rates have been reduced for the winter season, with free parking all day New Year’s Day. Please join us for one – if not all – of these potential Oscar nominees. We recommend you buy your tickets in advance – follow this link to our website – or at the box office early, if you plan on coming this weekend. We’ve been selling out many screenings over the past week and we HATE disappointing you more than you hate hearing, “Sorry, we are sold out.”
With its languorous pace and sensuous cinematography, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is like summering in northern Italy – and you don’t need to worry about a passport. Newcomer Timothée Chalamet recently won the Breakthrough Actor Gotham Award for his portrayal of Elio, 17-year-old American-Italian who spends his days in his family’s Italian villa, with music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio’s life is altered when Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern is to begin working with Elio’s father. If you liked a recently screened film, MAURICE, also written by James Ivory, you will more than enjoy this film. Directed by Luca Guadagnino. LEARN MORE.
“‘Call Me By Your Name’ is a visually stunning coming-of-age story that boasts a star-making performance by Chalamet.” – Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
We’ve been hearing howls of laughter coming from the audiences during the screenings of the James Franco-directed THE DISASTER ARTIST. Franco also stars in the film, the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Wiseau’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend— and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing. Co-starring Franco’s brother, Dave Franco. LEARN MORE.
“It’s a hilarious and at times heartwarming film about the lengths people will go to achieve their wildest dreams.” – Marlow Stern, The Daily Beast
With its 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and the audience response we’ve experienced here at THE SHOWROOM, LADY BIRD is that rare film where the tastes of the critics and the movie-going public universally converge. Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf have both been nominated for Golden Globe Awards for their roles as a teen-age daughter and her loving but strong-willed and tough-as-nails mom, a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father loses his job Greta Gerwig debuts as solo writer/director of this affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.

“One of the best movies about adolescence to come along in years.” – Rafer Guzman, Newsday
