Week of November 26th - December 4th

Greetings from Rialto Cinemas Elmwood!

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are thankful for our wonderful patrons and friends! Thank you for making our experience here so special!

If you heard about Boyhood this summer and didn't get a chance to see it you will be delighted when you check it out starting Wednesday! Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. This article from Hollywood Reporter talks about all the potential Oscar nominations for this film, "As the Oscar race approaches the Thanksgiving break, with only a handful of major awards hopefuls that haven't yet screened, Boyhood continues to look like the film to beat." Don't miss it!

The Homesman directed by Tommy Lee Jones continues this week. When three women living on the edge of the American frontier are driven mad by harsh pioneer life, the task of saving them falls to Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank). Transporting the women by covered wagon to Iowa, she soon realizes just how daunting the journey will be, and employs a low-life drifter, George Briggs (Tommy Lee Jones), to join her. The group traverses the harsh Nebraska Territories marked by stark beauty, psychological peril and constant threat. A.O. Scott declares The Homesman a New York Times Critics' Pick! Read his review here.

We love the circus! Join us Thursday evening, December 4 for The Big Apple Circus and their newest show, Metamorphosis! The New York Times named this production a New York Times Critics' Pick and says, "'Metamorphosis' is the theme of the latest edition of the Big Apple Circus. And considering the scale of this troupe more intimate, in the European tradition - you could say this impressive production starts modestly, only to spread its wings and soar." We are looking forward to sharing this family friendly production with you! Tickets are here.

Continuing this week are Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy in the fun comedy St. Vincent, a story of friendship across generations. Also continuing is Awake: The Life of Yogananda the biography of Paramahansa Yogananda, who authored the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi.

If you are going to start your holiday shopping this weekend make it easy on yourself! Go online and purchase tickets tickets for National Theatre Live, World Masterpieces or Saturdays with the Royals - all from the comfort of your home! Additionally, if you are coming down to the theatre our gift cards are a wonderful one size fits all gift!
