“Not Safe Fort Wayne” is back and riding a Summer HEAT Wave with the comedic classic WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER & the under-seen Slasher masterpiece THE BURNING (see what we did there?).
Set on the last day of camp, in the hot summer of 1981, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER centers on a group of counselors trying to complete their unfinished business before the day ends. Hilarity ensues with a pitch perfect lampooning of Sumer Movie tropes. In THE BURNING a former summer camp caretaker, horribly burned from a prank gone wrong, lurks around an upstate New York summer camp bent on killing the teenagers responsible for his disfigurement. The first film to be produced by the Weinsteins and featuring the work of special effects legend Tom Savini, THE BURNING is an exemplary piece of the Slasher genre.
Get here early and enjoy some friendly camp-style competition, special Camp themed beverages, and food by Bravas!
Digging for Fire - A New York Film Critics Series Preview Screening
Wednesday, August 19th, Pre-Show at 7:00 PM, Feture at 7:30
$15 General, $10 Members, No Passes Accepted
Cinema Center is excited to continue our participation in the New York Film Critics Series with a screening of the latest film from Joe Swanberg, DIGGING FOR FIRE!
The discovery of a bone and a gun send a husband and wife on separate adventures over the course of a weekend. Featuring a Stellar Cast including: Comedian MIKE BIRBIGLIA, ORLANDO BLOOM, JAKE JOHNSON (Jurassic World), ROSEMARIE DEWITT (Mad Men), SAM ELLIOTT, ANNA KENDRICK, BRIE LARSON, RON LIVINGSTON, MELANIE LYNSKEY, JENNY SLATE, and SAM ROCKWELL.
"The movie delivers a bewitching dissection of happiness and unhappiness in love. Digging for Fire is a promising peek into the future of Swanberg, and one that only signals more to come." - Indiewire
"Digging For Fire is low-lit and pitched in a minor key, a quiet meditation on compromise, individuality, the loss of identity within a marriage, and the aftermath of disorientation that comes with having children and losing touch with your former life." - The Playlist
"A lovely slice of everything and nothing." -Variety
85 mins., Rated R.
In an effort to make our programming accessible to all audiences, Cinema Center is excited and proud to launch Subtitled Sundays! On the third Sunday of every month, Cinema Center will screen one of our regularly scheduled, full-run films with the captioning enabled. Not only will this benefit the deaf and hard of hearing, but it will help anyone who sometimes has a little trouble discerning dialogue when multiple characters speak, or who miss what is said in very quiet moments.
The next Subtitled Sunday film will be on Sunday August 16th!
Be sure to check Our Schedule for Subtitled Sunday movie selections and show times. Regular pricing applies. At Cinema Center, we truly believe everyone in this great community should have a chance to enjoy the best independent, documentary, and foreign films. It is one of the many reasons why Film feels different here.
