BREAKFAST AND A MOVIE: Every month, the Friends of the Hollywood Theater invites you to join us for a light brunch and a classic movie. Breakfast and a movie is $15 ($13 for Hollywood members). You must order your brunch ticket by 11 p.m., the Thursday BEFORE the movie online or at theater. Doors open for the brunch at 10:15 a.m., and the film starts at 11. Film only tickets ($8) can be purchased at the door after 10:40 a.m. Food for the brunch is first come, first served.
We are currently planning our fall and winter Breakfast and a Movie titles – stay tuned for information soon!

That lot connects to one off West Liberty Avenue. Please remember the upper lot off Espy Avenue (across from the church) is PUBLIC parking; the lower lot is reserved for the church.

THE FILMS OF STANLEY KUBRICK SERIES: Monthly, July 2014 through August 2015. We are proud to celebrate a new series that will honor the incredible work of legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. The late director’s filmography will be presented one feature at a time, starting in July and running through August 2015. Nominated for 13 Academy Awards, Kubrick was a giant in his craft, and stands as an influence to most filmmakers working today. He was a key member of the New Hollywood movement that saw a group of directors rise to prominence between the 1960s and the 1980s. Kubrick films such as Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Paths of Glory, Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and The Shining were breakthroughs in their individual genres and established the director as one of the best directors that ever lived. Local artist Zachary Curl will design a poster for each movie. A new poster will debut before each screening and will be available for $10 each at the concession stand.
