MOVIES

GOLD TOWN

For complete listings, visit www.goldtownnick.com.

Post-Zombie Walk Zombie Movie (title TBA) — Friday, Oct. 25, following the KXLL Zombie Walk (about 8:30 p.m.)

”Keep Gold Town Shining” Horror-thon Fundraiser — Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26 and 27. Proceeds will help the theater pay for a new projector and bulb. The event will open on Saturday with Halloween themed cartoons and movies from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by silent and classic titles from 1-4 p.m. Regular feature films will run at 4 and 7 p.m. and then the overnight marathon begins, running from 8:30 p.m. Saturday through 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

”Inequality for All" — Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26 and 27. Synopsis: Think about this… A single year’s income from a top-income earner in the US could buy enough housing for every homeless person in the entire country.  That idea of extreme economic disparity is the thrust of "Inequality For All" which follows Robert Reich, Secretary of Labor under Carter and Clinton. At the heart of the film is a simple proposition: what is a good society, and what role does the widening income gap play in the deterioration of our nation’s economic health?  This film endeavors to be a paradigm-shifting, eye-opening experience for the American public and shows, through a non-partisan perspective, why extreme income inequality is such an important topic for our citizens today and for the future of America. 

“Good Ol’ Freda” — Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 24-27. Synopsis: “Good Ol’ Freda” tells the story of Freda Kelly, a shy teenager asked to work for a young local band hoping to make it big: the Beatles. As the Beatles’ fame multiplies, Freda bears witness to music and cultural history. Their loyal secretary from beginning to end, Freda finally tells her tales for the first time in 50 years. This film is also the first movie to ever have rights to use original Beatles’ music.

“When I Walk” — Sunday and Wednesday, Oct. 27 and 30. Presented in partnership with SAIL. Sunday show pay-as-you-can. Synopsis: In 2006, 25-year-old Jason DaSilva was on vacation at the beach with family when, suddenly, he fell down. He couldn't get back up. His legs had stopped working; his disease could no longer be ignored. Just a few months earlier doctors had told him that he had multiple sclerosis, which could lead to loss of vision and muscle control, as well as a myriad of other complications. Jason tried exercise to help cope, but the problem only worsened. After his dispiriting fall on the beach, he turned to his Mom, who reminded him that, despite his disease, he was still a fortunate kid who had the opportunity to pursue the things he loved most: art and filmmaking. Jason picked up the camera, turned it on his declining body, and set out on a worldwide journey in search of healing, self-discovery, and love.

“Muppet Treasure Island” — Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 28 and 29. Free popcorn to any one who dresses like a pirate for this two-night only collaboration with Perseverance Theater, as they prepare to launch their live production of the Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic. Synopsis: As in The Muppet Christmas Carol, this film stays loyal to the original storyline but casts the well-known puppets in many of the supporting roles. Young Jim Hawkins remains human, as does Long John Silver, played by an amusingly exaggerated Tim Curry. However, Captain Smollet is played by the Kermit the Frog; Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and Rizzo the Rat serve as roving narrators; and numerous other Muppets assume smaller roles.

“Mischief Night”— Wednesday, Oct. 30. Synopsis: Young Emily Walton, who has suffered from psychosomatic blindness ever since the car accident that took her mother’s life, must summon every instinct at her disposal to protect herself and her loved ones from a mysterious intruder.

“Carrie” (R) — A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White, a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother, who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

 

GLACIER CINEMAS

“Enough Said” (PG-13) — Synopsis: A divorced woman who decides to pursue the man she’s interested in learns he’s her new friend’s ex-husband.

“The Counselor” (R) — Synopsis: A lawyer finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking.

“Escape Plan” (R) — Synopsis: When a structural-security authority finds himself set up and incarcerated in the world’s most secret and secure prison, he has to use his skills to escape with help from the inside.

“Gravity” (PG-13) — In 2D and 3D. A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space.
