 *7pm is the correct start time for Bad Faith. The start time was listed incorrectly in the brochure.

* Please note the Saturday screening of The Debt and the  Sunday 11:30am and 2pm screenings of Yoo Hoo Mrs. Goldberg are all on Stand By. 
Right now we are on "standby" for the The Debt and Yoo Hoo Mrs. Goldberg.  What that means is that about 75% of our tickets have been sold in advance so that we can save room for our pass-holders. Therefore, even for "sold out" films, we can often accommodate many patrons just before show time. At the door, one-hour before show time, a stand-by wait-list is taken outside the theater lobby. Fifteen minutes before the film begins, stand-by patrons are admitted, on a space-available basis until the theater is full. We will do our best to accommodate everyone interested in screening the film. If we sell out and are not able to seat everyone, please accept our apologies in advance. ,
