Description

THURSDAY AUGUST 15 DOUBLE FEATURE

GLORIA 6:15
A thrilling Gena Rowlands stars as the titular ex-gun moll and showgirl suddenly forced to protect a kid whose parents have been rubbed out by the mob. Now the mob wants the kid dead too – but first they’ll have to deal with Gloria! Writer/director John Cassavetes tension-filled drama brings a fresh eye to the NYC setting and the confrontational rhythms inherent in the landscape are consistently illuminating. Juan Adams and Buck Henry co-star. (1980, 123 min, DCP)

+ JACKIE BROWN 8:30
‘70s cult stars Pam Grier and Robert Forster returned to the mainstream spotlight in this gritty romance of a flight attendant and the bail bondsman who helps in her attempt to bring down drug smuggler Samuel L. Jackson. Based on Elmore Leonard’s book Rum Punch, Quentin Tarantino transports the action from Miami to the environs of L.A.’s South Bay where co-stars Michael Keaton, Robert De Niro, and Bridget Fonda add their chops in supporting roles. (1997, 154 min, DCP)
