Thank you, Veterans

Look at this image. Really. What you're seeing is the US 165th Infantry walking toward Butaritari Island during the Battle of Makin in World War II. I think this image explains Veterans Day better than most. Veterans are the ones in our community who walk toward the places we most wish to avoid. And that is why today, and every day, we celebrate and thank them. 

Please join us here at The Little in thanking those who give their time, skills, safety and lives to us and our country.

Little Holiday Hours

Well sweet patrons, it's that time of year again. Chestnuts are roasting, commuters are freezing, and all of us are illuminated with a special glow of the impending holidays. Of course, even we are taking a couple days in this season for ourselves and our families. So, the theatre, café and business office will have some special hours in the coming months. But, of course, we will be showing movies on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day so that your family's holiday movie-watching traditions keep going strong!

Halloween Animated Short Plays Before Films

When The Sun Goes Down is an animated short about the Halloween adventure of Yum and Yuk, characters from the popular, Rochester-produced children's series. It will be preceding films in Theaters 1-3 between Friday, October 31 and Thursday, November 6.

It is an accompaniment to the book of the same name, written and illustrated by Rochesterians.

An explosion of color and imagery, the rhyming poem takes the viewer through a wonderfully spooky journey.

Brunch and A Movie

Do you like us? Do you like 2 Vine? Do you like Brunch? All of these are stupid questions.

We are joining with Restaurant 2 Vine to offer Brunch & A Movie.

For $25, 2 Vine guests can choose an appetizer and entrée from a prix fixe brunch menu and will receive a ticket to any regular-run matinee movie showing at our theatre with their meal. The ticket voucher is not
applicable for special events.

This is our 42nd Street and Avenue of the Americas

By Sunny Zaman, Little Theatre Intern, Summer 2014

New York City's Bryant Park has arguably the best public seat to classic and cult cinema. For over 20 years, the Bryant Park Corporation has hosted outdoor screenings for over 20 years. New Yorkers gather hours before dusk, even in the afternoon, to get a seat for the screenings.

But arriving just an hour or two early, or even simply walking by the event, has given me ample space to enjoy the stories-high screen and the boisterous sound reaching into the blocks surrounding Times Square. 

Sunny Talks I Origins

By Sunny Zaman, Little Theatre Intern

I was sipping a simple variation of the Little Café's quirky caffeinated concoctions (vanilla latte), and my buddies were chewing on their respective wraps.

Oliver said, through his full mouth,
"What is I Origins about?"

We had entered The Little planning to see A Most Wanted Man, featuring our Rochester pride and joy; the colorful I Origins poster had tickled Oliver's aesthetic fancy.

Fierce Performances and Deliberate Pace Exalt "The Rover"

By Matt Passantino

In 2010, film-going audiences were introduced to director David Michod with Animal Kingdom. The film immersed American viewers in the talents of Jacki Weaver and Ben Mendelsohn, but also it also brought to light a new director with a keen sense of tension.

Like Animal Kingdom, The Rover is a slow-burn film, one that requires audiences’ patience in arriving at an outcome. Thankfully, Michod always makes the wait worthwhile.
