*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!

Caligula: The Ultimate Cut reimagines the controversial 1979 film with a focus on historical accuracy and narrative coherence, stripping away much of the original's graphic content to highlight the dramatic essence of Rome's infamous emperor. This version, featuring enhanced digital restoration and a nuanced portrayal by Malcolm McDowell, emphasizes psychological depth and historical context over explicit scenes, making it more accessible while preserving the grandeur of the original's sets and costumes. The Ultimate Cut offers a refined, definitive interpretation of Tinto Brass's ambitious vision, balancing the spectacle of Imperial Rome with the dark personal saga of Caligula.
