TWO new movies for 9/18!

September 16, 2009

We’ve got two, that’s right count ’em, TWO bookings @ Cherrydale this week, starting Friday 9/18!

First off we’re bringing in O’Horton, a Nordic comedy about one retiree’s whacked-out first day off the job.  This one promises to bring all the dry, absurdist humor Scandinavia is famous for.  Also on the bill is Adam, a tragi-comic romance centered around a man with Asperger’s Syndrome (Hugh Dancy), and the woman that can’t quite figure out what to do with him (Rose Byrne).

And now, the visuals:

And, there you have it.  Looks like our weekend is pretty booked!  See you at the movies!


New film for 9/11: Humpday

September 9, 2009

Another week, another indie offering from your friends at Regal Cinemas, Cherrydale, and of course us here at the Upstate film Society.  This Friday, 9/11/09, we welcome the mumblecore comedy Humpday, from director Lynn Shelton.  This muted farce follows two aging slacker besties as they test the boundaries of male bonding by entering an amateur porn contest together, in the biblical sense.  The catch?  They’re both straight as the GOP.

The trailer:

Not so much about sexual politics, as much as friendship and what it means to be a man, this one has done very well with critics and audiences alike.

Let’s check it out!  See you there…


New film for 9/4: The Cove

September 4, 2009

Well, Paper Heart is leaving us after only a week on the docket, but we do have a brand new documentary this week for the strong willed:  The Cove opens today, Friday 9/4, and promises to be more than your average eco-conscious plea for awareness.  Conceived as a thriller, The Cove sets out to expose the morally deplorable dolphin killings that take place off the shores of modern Japan.  Filmed guerrilla-style, the filmmakers aim for a genuine sense of dread, and conjure real-life suspense as they spin their murky tale.

The trailer:

This one looks exciting!  See you there!
