Cinema Salem Newsletter

Wow, another terrific lineup at our local movie theater. I have to say, there is SO MUCH to do in Salem!! Between world-class (yes, there is that word again) museums, small live theater productions, awesome special events, and this terrific movie theater, the entertainment options are unbelievable for those of us who are lucky enough to live in or near Salem (or for those of you who come to visit our fair city) -- and then add in all the great local restaurants -- Salem is the BEST!!!
I hope to see you here!

Here is Cinema Salem's newsletter for your information.


Dear Juli,

Another huge week at CinemaSalem! Tomorrow night at 9 pm we premiere SEVERE CLEAR, the Jury Award-winner at the recent Salem Film Fest (more below), and then at 10 pm, we premiere CLASH OF THE TITANS.

Did you catch the awesome review of SEVERE CLEAR in Newsweek? If not, check it out: Pretty impressive.

After the Thursday night premiere, SEVERE CLEAR will screen on Friday and Saturday at (12:00), (2:30), (5:00), 7:30 and 9:30; Sunday at (12:00), (2:30), (5:00) and 7:30; Monday-Wednesday at (5:00) and 7:30; and Thursday at (5:00).

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON has won over the critics and the crowds in its first week, emerging as the best-reviewed movie of the year, so far. HTTYD will screen on Friday and Saturday at (11:15 AM), (1:30), (4:00), 6:45 and 9:00; Sunday at (11:15 AM), (1:30), (4:00) and 6:45; and Monday-Thursday at (4:00) and 6:45.

Lots have people have come in to see our monster stack of SHUTTER ISLAND (screening Friday-Sunday at (1:45) and 7:00 and Monday-Thursday at 7:00) and Jeff Bridges in CRAZY HEART (screening Friday and Saturday at (11:30), (4:30), and 9:45; Sunday at (11:30) and (4:30); and Monday through Thursday at (4:30).

There's been quite a bit of talk about ticket prices recently, with some theaters raising their prices by $3-4 overnight last Friday. Our admission prices are staying the same, and if you come to a show that starts before 12:30 pm on the weekends, you can get in for a mere $6!

If you prefer movies in French, you'll want to investigate French Film Night, presented each month at CinemaSalem by Club Richelieu of Salem, which will present one of the most romantic films of the recent past, THE STORY OF ADELE H., next Thursday at 7:30. This is a private party, but you can probably finagle your way in by calling 978 927-3709 and ponying up the $10 contribution. Bonne chance!

Thanks for supporting CinemaSalem! Mike Scotti (pictured here in uniform), subject and accidental cinematographer of SEVERE CLEAR, will visit CinemaSalem in person for tomorrow night's premiere, accompanied by the film's director, Kristian Fraga.
