THE SHAPE OF WATER
2017, Fox Searchlight, 123 min, Canada/USA, Dir: Guillermo del Toro
This otherworldly fable from master story teller Guillermo del Toro is set against the backdrop of Cold War America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones. “THE SHAPE OF WATER is a wonder to behold. Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it’s a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon.” - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

3-D!
CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON
1954, Universal, 79 min, USA, Dir: Jack Arnold
Ichthyologist Dr. David Reed (Richard Carlson) leads a team of scientists on an expedition up the Amazon River to hunt for fossils linking prehistoric land and sea mammals. But the murky waters of the region’s Black Lagoon hide more than old bones; an amphibious gill-man rises from the depths to attack the researchers. Like King Kong, the creature is captured, escapes and sets his sights on a beautiful woman - Dr. Reed’s girlfriend, Kay (Julia Adams). The last of the classic Universal movie monsters, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON was one of the studio’s first 3-D features, and remains among the most memorable horror films of the 1950s.

Screening format: DCP (THE SHAPE OF WATER), 35mm (CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON) | Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Members. No vouchers.
