Free Preview Screening!

Join us Tuesday at 4pm for a FREE preview screening of the new comedy Meeting Spencer starring Jeffrey Tambor & produced by our good friend George G. Braunstein (Fade to Black, Surf II).

IMdB plot summary:
In this new comedy, famed stage director Harris Chappell (Jeffrey Tambor) returns to Broadway to re-launch his career after several humiliating flops in Hollywood. As a favor to an old friend, he agrees to meet Spencer (Jesse Plemons), a struggling young actor , for a quick dinner, knowing Spencer is totally unsuited to play the 75-year-old lead in his new play. At dinner, Chappell juggles numerous agendas, and by the time it is over, all bets are off, and Chappell and friend's dreams do come true.

This is the kind of film that makes you feel intensely alive while you're watching it. - Roger Ebert

Red is not a movie by a filmmaker who has run out of ideas, but one by an artist at the height of his powers.
- Hal Hinson, Washington Post

Undaunted by the tremendous emotional and moral valence he has by now invited us to expect, Kieslowski controls the film magnificently, putting to use the shapely formal precision he took an entire career to work out. - Jonathan Kiefer,
