For the first time in recent years, the Moorlyn Family Theatre will remain open through the fall and Christmas seasons and into First Night celebrations.  Because of the new management, distributors are willing to provide first-run releases on a trial basis, depending on local response.  Extensive parking is free in the municipal lots adjacent to Moorlyn Terrace and 8th Street.

 

Now playing, the highly promoted sequel, "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" along with "The Ultimate Life," and a critic’s choice coming of age film, “The Way Way Back.”  By popular demand, "The Butler," continues, as well.

Other titles in the pipeline include "Gravity" (Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) and "Grace Unplugged."

Artistic Director Seth Bazacas named other coming features: "Captain Phillips" (Tom Hanks), "Free Birds" the new animated Angry Birds film (Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler), "Thor: The Dark World" the latest sequel in the super hero saga, and the next Hunger Games release, "Catching Fire."

Assuming solid community response, the Moorlyn will add Disney's "Frozen" and the new Hobbit film, "The Desolation of Smaug," both releases in December.

Asked about First Night, Bazacas said he plans to offer free films to button-holders in two of the four screens—“VeggieTales” for the younger set and award-winning Disney Pixar short animations for older teens and adults.
