REVIEW: Ex Machina

By Sunny Zaman

With the rapport and overhang of Danny Boyle’s directorial vision over some of his successful scripts (Sunshine, 28 Days Later), Alex Garland debuts the first feature he’s both written and directed.

Schedule Changes: Feb. 2, 2015


As such, there are some changes in today's schedule:
1. There will be no band in the Café tonight, as our musicians have frozen to their instruments.
2a. The heat in Theater 1 has been crushed by the winter's icy hammer. As such, tonight's 6:20 screening of SELMA will be in Theater 2 and the 9:20 screening is canceled.
2b. This means that the 6:00 screening of THE IMITATION GAME is canceled tonight.

If it is not safe to come to us tonight, please stay home and be cozy. We will still love you. 

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!

Member Movie Night: Tuesday November 18

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.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.
