1. You couldn’t get tickets to a particular movie you wanted to see. “Learning to Drive?” So what, I learned to drive when I was 16. “Dark Places?” Well, go see any movie here and you’ll be sitting in one! Finding out that one of your selections is “Standby Only” is one of life’s great chances to see something unexpected, daring, and surprising!
2. You still can’t decide what to see from a list of films featuring everything from some of the greatest classics in the history of cinema to some of the most audacious, captivating, hilarious, and transcendent movies to come along in recent years.
3. You’re desperately trying to figure out how many meals you can skip, responsibilities you can abandon, and how long your dog can go without a walk in order to squeeze in a few more movies.
Fortunately for you, your friendly neighborhood programmer (yes, I’ve seen them all) is here to help! Read on to find out more about some of my favorites — tips and suggestions for finalizing your feast of film this coming July 28 – August 2.
Norway never lets us down. Each year some of our favorite films of the festival come from this little Scandinavian country that has no business being as phenomenal at making films as it is. And this nearly-one-man comedy is no exception to the rule.
And don’t forget about my additional screening of “Mike’s Surprise” — Saturday at 12 noon at the State!
So log on to our website or visit our box office at 201 E Front Street (corner of Front and Cass) to get your tickets now! The only thing you’ll regret is not seeing more.
Only 5 more sleeps till movie Christmas!
