THE SHAPE OF WATER + CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (35mm)
March 10 only
“I’ve had this movie (THE SHAPE OF WATER) in my head since I was 6, not as a story but as an idea… When I saw the creature swimming under Julie Adams [in CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON], I thought three things: I thought, ‘Hubba-hubba.’ I thought, ‘This is the most poetic thing I’ll ever see.’ I was overwhelmed by the beauty. And the third thing I thought is, ‘I hope they end up together.’” – Guillermo del Toro
THE SHAPE OF WATER 6:45pm
Nominated to 13 Academy Award Nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director (Guillermo del Toro), Best Actress (Sally Hawkins), Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Richard Jenkins) and Best Supporting Actress (Octavia Spencer).

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.

CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON 9pm
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 remains among the most memorable horror films of the 1950s.
1954, Universal, 79 min, USA, Dir: Jack Arnold. 35mm.
