This week we have a most strange and unusual situation. Our biggest movie is opening on a Wednesday instead of Friday. This gives us five glorious days to play whatever the heck we want, so we have two films for you to check out in limited release.
We’ve got superhero fever this week, and the only prescription is to bring you two new heroes for your viewing pleasure. Having read all your emails and tweets, we have a big addition to this week’s lineup.
The early reviews for WONDER WOMAN have indicated that we are on the verge of seeing one of the best DC superhero films in a very long time. The buzz for this movie has been deafening and so because of your overwhelming requests we have added it to our lineup.
Remember when you were a kid and your idea of fun was a cardboard tube? You can turn it into a baseball bat, a lightsaber, or even a makeshift telescope in search of buried treasure. With Memorial Day on the horizon, we want you to find your inner kid as we’re going to set our sails on a high-sea journey for adventure!
The end of the school year is rapidly approaching, and with it comes a desire to get outdoors and be one with nature. But nature is hot and movie theaters are cold, so let’s dial back the urge to get sunburn and see some exciting new independent films that we’re showcasing this weekend.
When does summer begin? Experts would say June 20th, children would tell you it’s when school ends, and our good friend Pete thinks summer starts when killer bees arrive from the Yucatan Peninsula. We happen to think that summer begins when a big crazy superhero movie comes out, and in that case summer begins this weekend!
We here at The Broad Theater believe that choice is essential. With four screens available, we want to make sure that every week you have the ability to choose the movie that suits your mood. With this week’s new selections, we offer you three films that are truly unique and independent.
COLOSSAL is a Kaiju (ed note: Japanese for “strange beast”) movie starring Anne Hathaway. We honestly thought we’d never write a sentence like that, but here we are.
This Week at The Broad, we’ve got two new films and a slew of special events to go over so let’s get straight to the run down, shall we?
T2: TRAINSPOTTING is the long awaited sequel to one of the outright classic independent films of the 90’s. Rather than the typical overdue sequel that forgets what made the original so amazing, this is a mature sequel that brings back the characters you love (led by a still-mesmerizing Ewan McGregor) with something to say about the passage of time. 20 years may have passed, but Danny Boyle and crew still know how to crank out a classic.
