MATINEE (35mm)

Part of our weekend series: Joe Dante’s Films in Films! In 35mm! With an in-person introduction by Joe Dante!

What better way to spend a Sunday in July than with a special matinee of MATINEE in 35mm? Joe Dante’s hilarious ode to low-budget filmmaking and good old fashioned showmanship features both 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.
