Eclectic Lineup at the Crandell Theatre, Aug 5 – 8

WEREWOLVES WITHIN
Thursday, August 5, 7:30 pm
Rated R.
97 Minutes
Comedy, Horror

Not your usual scary movie, this charismatic horror-comedy has a hysterically funny comic element. When a proposed pipeline creates divisions within the small town of Beaverfield, and a snowstorm traps its residents together inside the local inn, newly arrived forest ranger Finn (Sam Richardson) and postal worker Cecily (Milana Vayntrub) must try to keep the peace and uncover the truth behind a mysterious creature that has begun terrorizing the community 

“This goofy horror comedy, based on an online game of the same name, just goes to prove that if you have a great cast, smart direction and witty script you can just about get away with murder.” — Leslie Felperin, Guardian

Friday, August 6, 4 pm
Saturday, August 7, 7:30 pm

Those of us who missed Sundance Film Festival – which took place online and in-person in 20 cities across the country from January 28 through February 3 this year – can still see what Sundance considers as its best shorts. 

The 2021 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is a 92-minute theatrical program of 7 short films selected from the 2021 Sundance Film Festival program, widely considered the premier showcase for short films and the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers for close to 40 years. Including fiction, documentary and animation from around the world, the 2021 program offers new audiences a taste of what the Festival offers and shows that short films transcend traditional storytelling. Find a list of shorts and synopsis here.

An official selection at the 2021 Sundance Festival, profiles the life and career of the brilliant and enigmatic dancer and choreographer Alvin Ailey, who founded The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. The documentary, told in Ailey’s own words and directed by Jamila Wignot, will appeal not only to those familiar with modern dance, but all who appreciate self-expression, perseverance, and transcendence through art.

Jurassic Park was impressive in 1993. Twenty years later, it’s flawless.” — Sean O’Connell, Washington Post

TRUMAN & TENNESSE: AN INTIMATE CONVERSATION
Sunday, August 8, 1 pm

An innovative dual-portrait of writers Truman Capote and Tennesse Williams. A film full of wit and wisdom, it is a portrait of each man’s fearless candor and their tumultuous friendship.

Not only for English majors or book worms, but anyone interested in how friendship sustains us will be drawn to Truman & Tennessee

Playing at Crandell, Jaws!

Crandell Theatre presents the 1975 classic, Jaws! This one-time showing will happen on Friday, July 2nd, just in time for Independence Day.
