Basic Instinct: 4K Restoration 

In one of Verhoeven's most provocative films, Detective Nick Curran (Michael Douglas) becomes ensnared in a web of sex, lies, and violence, all leading back to Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone), a seductive, mysterious crime novelist. As the bodies pile up and hidden obsessions are revealed, Curran begins to doubt his investigatory instincts and give in to his baser ones.

"Verhoeven's cinematic wet dream delivers the goods, especially when Sharon Stone struts on with enough come-on carnality to singe the screen." - Rolling Stone

Cracked Comedies continue all Summer! Next up: THE NAKED GUN

Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen), a rather clueless police detective, tries to foil a plot to turn innocent people into assassins through mind control.

"NAKED GUN is hugely funny." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"It gave me about 10 big laughs and 20 small laughs and as many smiles. That's value for time and money spent." - Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

"Irreverent, wacky fun and absolutely hilarious from beginning to end." - Variety

July 16 & 19 ONLY!


princess---playhouse---web---wild-men-n.png

A delightfully deadpan comedy with plenty of heart, Wild Men proves there's still plenty of humour to be mined from the male midlife crisis.

In a desperate attempt to cure his midlife crisis, Martin has fled his family to live high up in the Norwegian mountains, hunting and gathering like his ancestors did thousands of years ago.

"Wickedly funny... Underscoring this film are potent themes about masculinity, identity and self-expression. There is also a fair bit of action, and not just of the mountain adventure variety." - Eye on Film

One week only at the Original!

What if you could erase your ex from your memory? You might have fantasized about it, but Kaufman makes it a reality!

"The latest and loveliest alternative universe created by Charlie Kaufman, America's most intellectually provocative screenwriter." - TIME Magazine

"A surprisingly bittersweet love story, Eternal Sunshine values the sum of experience, which means a thorns-and-all openness to romantic possibilities." - AV Club

"Works marvel after marvel in expressing the bewildering beauty and existential horror of being trapped inside one's own addled mind." - Time Out

David Cronenberg's RABID (1977) plays for two shows only, June 19 & 23!

If Cronenberg was courting Canadian outrage with his feature directorial debut, he was practically begging for controversy with his sophomore effort!
