DIE HARD

DIE HARD

Though released in July 30 years ago, there’s always been a debate as to whether the original DIE HARD was a Christmas movie or not. We’ve decided to let you decide as we bring it back to the big screen this holiday season!

Bruce Willis stars as New York City Detective John McClane, who has just gotten off a plane in Los Angeles to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia). But as McClane waits for his wife’s office party break up in the impressive Nakatomi Plaza, a band of terrorists take control of the building. While the leader, Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman in his screen debut!) rounds up hostages, McClane slips away unnoticed. Armed with only a service revolver, his wits, and a friendly LA Cop on the radio, McClane launches his own one-man war to save the day!

Join the Kiggins Theatre and our friends at Niche Wine Bar as we continue our Noir Nights film series pairing film noir classics with a pre-show tasting featuring three wines influenced by the films!

Niche proprietor Leah Jackson will be on hand to discuss the wines which will also be able to be purchase by the glass for your movie watching pleasure (and by the bottle as you leave).

Tickets to individual films are $10 and include a collectible ticket. The tasting for the three wines is $5.

Our Mann and Alton trilogy concludes on March 11th with the gritty HE WALKED BY NIGHT!

When a Los Angeles police officer is savagely gunned down, a city-wide manhunt ensues for his cunning and ruthless killer. But finding the murderer proves difficult for Detective Marty Brennan (Scott Brady) and his colleagues as the killer is always one step ahead of the law.

Visually stunning, cinematographer John Alton’s brilliant use of light and shadows shine in this groundbreaking police procedural that paved the way for the TV series Dragnet; which itself spawned an entire sub-genre of television crime-dramas that are still popular to this day.

Based on true events, He Walked by Night was officially directed by Alfred L. Werker, though the uncredited Anthony Mann is believed to be responsible for the film’s most iconic scenes.

Re-Imagined Radio presents A RADIO CHRISTMAS CAROL

Re-Imagined Radio presents A RADIO CHRISTMAS CAROL

What is Re-Imagined Radio?

Start with a 1936 theatre. Re-enact historic radio dramas complete with voice actors and Foley sound artists. Garnish with digital SFX, music, and visual backdrops. Overlay student digital interpretations of the base narrative. Invite a live audience to watch, eat popcorn, and participate via social media. The result: Re-Imagined Radio—storytelling as never before heard, or seen.

Our Re-Imagined Radio tradition continues on December 20th with A RADIO CHRISTMAS CAROL!

"A Radio Christmas Carol" is adapted from the 1938 radio broadcast by The Mercury Theatre on the Air, narrated by Orson Welles. That performance was itself inspired by the Charles Dickens novella, A Christmas Carol, first published in 1843, and never out of print since. This popularity and the spirit of the story are appropriate to the holiday season.

The message of this live re-imagined performance—humanity far outweighs riches—is timely as we contemplate the changes and uncertainties ahead of us, as a culture, a community, a country. Join us for this holiday classic. Food donations for those less fortunate appreciated.

Tickets are $8 in advance, $12 at the door.

The legendary Hollywood musical is back on our big screen!

Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor star in one of the greatest and most successful musicals ever filmed – filled with memorable songs, lavish dance routines and, of course, Kelly’s famous song-and-dance number performed in the rain!

Set during the advent of “talkies,” Don Lockwood (Kelly) has risen to stardom during Hollywood’s silent-movie era – paired with the beautiful, jealous and not so smart Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen). When Lockwood becomes attracted to young studio singer Kathy Selden (Reynolds), Lamont has her fired. But with the introduction of talking pictures, Lockwood finds his own career in jeopardy after audiences laugh when they hear Lamont speak in her shrill voice for the first time… until the studio decides to use Selden to dub her voice.

Featuring such classic songs as Make ‘Em Laugh, Fit as a Fiddle, You Were Meant for Me, Moses Supposes and You are My Lucky Star to name but a few!

Starts December 25th! Day of show tickets $10. Advance walk-up or on-line tickets $7.

WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY

WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY

TBC

In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper. Now, for the first time, their story is told.

Based on the book by Samuel D. Kassow, WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen archival footage and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters. They defied their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.

With narration by Academy Award winner Adrien Brody and Academy Award nominee Joan Allen
