This week through Jan. 1, we are holding Walking with Dinosaurs 3D, Saving Mr. Banks, Anchorman 2 and The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.
Jan. 2, we hope to open The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle. The studios have not totally confirmed these bookings for us but hopefully they’ll consider our small town, especially after our constant badgering.
Both of these films will be Academy Award considerations, so the studios are not releasing these films in one huge distribution. They’re sort of dribbling them out so folks are still talking about them during the nomination process. Then after the nomination they’ll release even more prints and after a possible Academy Award or a Golden Globe, still more will be released. It’s not always just about the money. I’s also about the recognition.
Also on our short list in the near future is Philomena, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, LEGO, The Monuments Men, Nebraska, Lone Survivor and Her.
Don’t forget, if it’s your birthday, the movie of your choice is free.
January is shaping up to be a great month for the movies. See you there!
