Rocky’s Review
Write with Light

Next month will mark 26 years that I have been running the Rose. I feel fortunate beyond measure that I love my job more than ever. The business has changed dramatically over this time, but what has never changed - and will never change - is the desire, the need of creative individuals to express themselves through this medium, to write with light. Like the earliest cave dwellers, artists will always find a wall on which to project images, to project their voice.

      More by whim than intention, this week's line-up of movies couldn't be more wide-ranging. INCREDIBLES 2 will delight the young and the young at heart this weekend, while up in the Starlight we're featuring four movies over the course of the weekend: THE GUARDIANS, a beautiful French film starring Natalie Baye plays Saturday and Sunday only. "...a rather powerful portrait of women getting by in a world where all the men are either gone or gone mad." -Hollywood Reporter

     BOOM FOR REAL: THE TEENAGE YEARS OF JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT follows Basquiat's life pre-fame and how New York City, the times, the people and the movements surrounding him formed the artist he became. "An unequivocal cause for celebration. Director Sara Driver pays him a proper and enthralling tribute." -The New York Times
     RBG returns to the Starlight Friday for its 5th phenomenal week. Our Late Night @ the Starlight showing of THE PRINCESS BRIDE  on Saturday has been sold out for weeks, but you can also catch it Friday downstairs at the Rose.

     OCEAN'S 8 is holding over for another week, moving to the Rosebud Friday. And Saturday we're bringing back for the third time one of the most popular shows from the National Theatre of London - THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME. Winner of seven Olivier Awards and five Tony awards. "Astonishing and unmissable." -Sunday Express.
