Advance ticket info for Blow Out coming soon!

A movie sound recordist accidentally records the evidence that proves that a car accident was actually murder and consequently finds himself in danger.

National Society of Film Critics Awards, USA: Best Cinematography award winner!

4/4 Stars! “Blow Out is pure cinema, an exercise in elegant direction and refined style in which technique and plot merge into a singular body. And yet, the picture goes beyond pure cinema to question the mechanics of filmmaking.” (Deep Focus Review)

4/4 Stars! “Brian De Palma’s engrossing political thriller…his stylishly brilliant send-up of suspense and horror conventions that is also extremely suspenseful and often vary scary.” (Q Network)

4/4 Stars! “Best of all, this movie is inhabited by a real cinematic intelligence. The audience isn’t condescended to…we’re challenged and stimulated: We share the excitement of figuring out how things develop and unfold, when so often the movies only need us as passive witnesses.” (Roger Ebert)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
