CinemaSalem's Excellent Newsletter

Subscribing to CinemaSalem's excellent newsletter is rather like having an insider in the movie business as your best friend.  It is a great starting point for letting you know what movies are out on the big screen, as well as the little films such as those they show in the screening room.

I hope you enjoy it when I cross-post the news here, for you fair blog reader!



If you haven't been to CinemaSalem in the past week, you'll want to stop in to see the great new art exhibit in the lobby.

While you're there, you can pick up your tickets for the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises next Thursday evening.

Now here's this week's schedule!

Now Playing: The Day He Arrives (NR); The Amazing Spider-Man (PG13); Ted (R); Brave (PG); This Perfect Place: A Natural History of the Massachusetts North Shore (NR); and The True 1692 3D!

We got a chance to catch The Amazing Spider-Man over the weekend and found it to be the world's first tender action-hero blockbuster. It was fun and satisfying to see the #1 Movie in America devote so much time and attention to motivating the complex relationships between the characters, and it's refusal to play quick and easy with even the villain's personality. Plus the action was great!

The Amazing Spider-Man will screen Friday and Saturday at (12:30), (3:30), 6:45, and 9:40; and Sunday-Thursday at (12:30), (3:30) and 6:45.

Opening in the Screening Room this week is The Day He Arrives, boasting a 93% thumbs-up at, reminding many scribes of Woody Allen at this best. The New York Times: "The movie becomes an exploration, both playful and rueful, of desire, narrative and the idea beautifully expressed by Faulkner in "Absalom, Absalom!" that 'maybe nothing ever happens once and is finished.'" The New Yorker: "(Director Sang-soo) Hong abstracts the tense network of fragile relationships to crisp, briskly sketched lines that he adorns with bubbly and self-deprecating humor and graceful wonders..." "Hong offers a strange mixture of magic, mystery, rueful melodrama and dry comedy that's like absolutely nothing else."

The Day He Arrives will screen on Friday and Saturday at (12:10), (3:00), (4:45), 7:15 and 9:20; and Sunday-Thursday at (12:10), (3:00), (4:45) and 7:15.

We're holding over the rest of our awesome lineup, so here are the showtimes.

Ted will screen on Friday and Saturday at (12:15), (2:45), (5:00), 7:30 and 9:50; and Sunday-Thursday at (12:15), (2:45), (5:00) and 7:30.

Brave will play Friday and Saturday at (12:00), (2:15), (4:30), 7:00 and 9:15; and Sunday-Thursday at (12:00), (2:15), (4:30) and 7:00.

This Perfect Place, with its breathtaking vistas and intimate glimpses of life on the North Shore, will screen on Friday at 12:00, 1:00, and 2:00; Saturday and Sunday at 12:00 and 1:00; and Monday-Thursday at 12:00, 1:00, and 2:00.

The True 1692 will screen everyday at 11:00, 2:00, and 6:30. The 2D version of 1692 will screen on Friday at 3:00; and Monday-Thursday at 3:00, 4:00, and 5:00 pm.
