MISERY

October 3 ONLY  @ 7:00PM

Stonington Ball Field

 

 

Let's welcome spooky October with MISERY -- a classic horror story from Maine's own, indomitable best-seller, Stephen King! After a famous author is rescued from a car crash by a fan of his novels, he comes to realize that the care he is receiving is only the beginning of a nightmare of captivity and abuse designed to produce a new novel to satisfy his captor's craving. While this movie is not for the faint of heart, it poses a fascinating meditation on the ages-old misery of "writers block" for writers and artists everywhere:.
 

Adapted and first released in 1990 from the King novel of the same name, and directed by Rob Reiner. With James Caan, Kathy Bates, Richard Farnsworth, Frances Sternhagen.  
Rated R.

$20 / CAR - SAT NIGHT ONLY!

GHOSTBUSTERS

Who ya gonna call?! It's our all time favorite group of unintentional heroes, back on the GIANT screen just in time to bust some October island ghosts. After the members of a team of scientists (Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray) lose their cushy positions at a university in New York City, they decide to become "ghostbusters" to wage a high-tech battle with the supernatural for money. They stumble upon a gateway to another dimension, a doorway that will release evil upon the city. The Ghostbusters must now save New York from complete destruction.
Rated PG. 

$20 / CAR
