We have been thrilled with the early response from our patrons regarding the new Mystic Luxury Cinemas and want to thank all who have attended since our December 17 opening. We have not been perfect in operating the cinema, but we will be and want you to tell us when you think we can do better. Our cinema belongs to the community.
I will write this blog weekly looking to inform you about upcoming events and new film openings. Booking a four-screen cinema is a difficult job as there are film company requirements that sometime make it difficult to take films out and put new ones in. We shall do our best. Our intention is to play quality motion pictures that appeal to all movie-goers along with certain alternative content and some family films.
We continue this week with the GOLDEN GLOBE Best Picture winner THE REVENANT starring Leonardo DiCaprio, directed and co-written by Academy Award Winner Alejandro G. Inarritu (Birdman-Best Film 2014 and Babel) and inspired by true events. THE REVENANT is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man's epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. “…It features a battalion of very fine, hardworking actors, none more diligently committed than Mr. DiCaprio, and some of the most beautiful natural tableaus you're likely to see in a movie this year…written by Manohla Dargis in his New York Times review on December 24. Expectation is for this film to receive numerous Academy Award nominations come January 14 when the nominations are broadcast live from Hollywood.
Opening this week January 15 is 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, a Michael Bay film. Based on the book, the film is the true account of what happened on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi. Enjoy 13 Hours on Thursday eve at a special advance premier of the movie on January 14 at 7PM.
As the Academy Award season develops we shall feature some of the top nominees. We are excited for January 14 and the nominee list so we can book some of the top noted pictures.
Lastly today, I want to tell you that we will be showing some alternative content, and the first event shall be THE BOLSHOI BALLET live from Moscow. The live event is scheduled for January 24, 2015 at 12:45 PM. Tickets shall go on sale this week
We hope all enjoy the new Mystic Luxury Cinema, now operating at the Mistick Village Center at Exit 90 just off I-95. We are excited to be your local cinema. See you at the Movies.
