One of our resident film buffs (and art film advocate) Bill Higgins sent the following enticement to see Beasts of the Southern Wild, which continues its run at The Lake, where it was the second highest grossing film of the Labor Day weekend.
The Lake Theatre, which has been doing very well of late landing art and indie films for their demanding Oak Park audience, has booked one of the more noteworthy films of the year thus far. Beginning Friday, Beasts of the Southern Wild, will begin its run.
Now seniors and everybody else will have a choice to see such films. The Lake Theatre has announced a First Tuesday Film Club. The first film Albert Nobbs, is scheduled twice on Tuesday, April 3 at 1 pm and 7 pm. It stars Glenn Close, who was nominated for an Academy Award for her role. She plays a man so she can get a job at an upscale Irish hotel. The plot thickens when she falls in love with a man.
For one week only, the historic Lake Theatre, located at 1022 Lake Street in downtown Oak Park, will be presenting the inspiring Chicago-based documentary The Interrupters beginning Friday, Sept. 16 and ending Thursday, Sept. 22. Showtimes are at 3:50 p.m., 6:50 p.m., and 9:50 p.m.
