Matinee (35mm) w/Joe Dante

July 2, 2017
2:00 pm
Roxie Theater

With an in-person introduction by Joe Dante! In 35mm! What better way to spend a Sunday in July than with a special matinee of... MATINEE? Joe Dante's hilarious ode to low-budget filmmaking and good old fashioned showmanship features a killer performance by John Goodman and Dante's film-within-the-film MANT! In October 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis occurs and the menace of nuclear war looms over the American South. Low-budget filmmaker Lawrence Woolsey (John Goodman) is in Key West, Fla., debuting his new film "MANT!" and thinks the prevailing mood of fear surrounding the premiere is perfect to stir up some excitement. A group of local teenagers (Simon Fenton, Lisa Jakub, Kellie Martin) prepare for the film's opening night, experiencing small crises of their own. FREE OR DISCOUNTED FOR MEMBERS 99m/USA/35mm
