SAVOY theater Newsletter

and

schedule for nov 15 - nov 21

 

It’s mid-November but it feels like December out there!  Come on in and take the edge off and warm up with a compelling drama.  This Friday we are excited to finally open South Korean director Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite, a black comedy drama about class struggles and human relationships.  Parasite will play downstairs with two shows each evening.

 

We have decided to hold onto Harriet, the biopic about the woman who helped many slaves find freedom via the Underground Railroad after she herself used it to escape slavery.  Harriet will continue to play upstairs in the main theater for one more week before we bring in Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, a comedy-drama about a 10-year-old boy being raised as a Nazi youth with help from his imaginary friend Hitler, who is played by Waititi. You can watch the trailer here.

 

This will be the final two nights for Robert Eggers strangely haunting film The Lighthouse, which features Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson facing off on the confines a small island off the Maine coast in the late 1800’s.  Shot in grainy black and white with sparse dialog, this unique film will leave an impression.  

 

The schedule for the rest of the month will remain in flux as we see how films perform, but you can expect to see Pedro Almodovar’s Pain and Glory and also Martin Scorcese’s epic The Irishman.  We are also looking at Honey Boy and Waves for December, so stay tuned!

 

We had another good weekend but we still need your membership support!  Thank you to all of you who have recently joined or renewed.  Your membership is the best way to give us the financial stability we need to continue to survive in this ever-shifting competitive market.  Some people feel that they’d rather just pay full price for tickets as a way to show support, however we only see a small fraction of the total ticket price whereas we see 100% of your membership dollars (before taxes of course).  A $50. annual membership for one at the basic level breaks down to roughly $4.00 per month, and a double membership at $85. (the basic level) amounts to around $3.50 per person, a very small amount indeed that means so much to us.  We are also hopefully going to be able to offer a monthly debit option soon so that you would not have to pay the full amount up front.

 

 Thank you!

PARASITE

 

5:50 & 8:20 All Evenings

 

12:50 & 3:20  Matinees Sat & Sun

Bong Joon Ho brings his work home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.

THE LIGHTHOUSE

 

6:00 & 8:15 All Evenings

 

A gripping story brilliantly filmed and led by a pair of powerhouse performances, The Lighthouse further establishes Robert Eggers as a filmmaker of exceptional talent. An ambitious slow-burn shocker with a sense of near-palpable dread; a timely and powerful tale of a man that succumbs to the toxic nature of his environment, prompting the dark part of his nature to take hold and lead him to ruin.  Set in the late 1800s, two men have been sent to watch over and maintain a remote lighthouse off the coast of Maine. Thomas Wake (Willem Dafoe) is an old tar who’s lost his sea legs, becoming an expert on the beacons used to keep sailors safe. He knows all there is to know about the workings of a lighthouse and suffers no fools, which his young cohort, Ephraim Winslow (Robert Pattinson), happens to be. As his charge stumbles about, making one mistake after another, Wake rules with an iron hand, shaming his coworker into doing his duty.
