More Great Flicks at Cinema Salem

This past weekend I had the opportunity to see True Grit at CinemaSalem.  It was a terrific movie, and I am really glad I went.  You are in luck, if you want to see it there, because the newsletter from CinemaSalem that is copied below says that it will be playing for another week.

I am hoping to go see the Oscar-nominated shorts that will be playing here this week, since I think this is one of the things that CinemaSalem offers which is unique, and enjoyable both!

I hope to see you here, or there!  Don't forget that the Tavern or Nathaniel's makes a great place to dine pre- or post-show, or a nice place to have an adult beverage.



That's the only way to describe the upcoming week at CinemaSalem, where we're cramming seven features into our four-screen movie theater! More in a moment.

The Salem Film Fest website is up and awesome at, with full descriptions of the 31 documentaries we'll be showcasing, and easy ways to purchase tickets. My suggestion: buy an "All-Access Pass" which gets you more than $340 worth of films for only $100!

And finally, the Grammies probably got you in the mood for the really big awards show: The Academy Awards. We'd like you to be our guests at the Oscars this year at CinemaSalem in high definition for free. The show starts at 8 pm on Sunday, February 27. See you there!

Now, here's this week's film schedule!

Now Playing: Unknown (PG-13); Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts; Oscar Nominated Live Action Shorts, True Grit (PG13); The King's Speech (R); The Fighter (R); and The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader (PG!

Is that a sick lineup, or what?

Unknown looks like an intriguing international suspense thriller, starring Liam Neeson, January Jones, and Diane Kruger. Here's the synopsis: Dr. Martin Harris (Neeson) awakens after a car accident in Berlin to discover that his wife (Jones) suddenly doesn't recognize him and another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity. Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by mysterious assassins, he finds himself alone, tired, and on the run. Aided by an unlikely ally (Kruger), Martin plunges headlong into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he's willing to go to uncover the truth.

Unknown will screen on Friday at (4:45), 7:15 and 10:00; Saturday at (11:45 AM), (2:15), (4:45), 7:15 and 10:00; and Sunday-Thursday at (11:45 AM), (2:15), (4:45) and 7:15.

In the Screening Room, we'll be giving you an Oscar preview by showing the Oscar Nominated Shorts 2011 in both the Animated and Live Action categories. Here are the showtimes:

Just in time for school vacation week comes The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which will screen Monday-Thursday only at noon. The Chicago Reader loves it: "The beguiling creature design -- from minotaur to dragon, sea serpent to one-footed dwarf -- heighten the illusion of a storybook coming alive."
