Advance tickets now available for The Cat O’ Nine Tails!

This second entry in Dario Argento’s “Animal Trilogy” (following THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE) finds the young talent further refining his distinctive style and cementing his reputation as master of the giallo. Featuring another nerve-jangling score by the great Ennio Morricone, THE CAT O’ NINE TAILS remains one of Argento’s most suspenseful and underrated films. When a break-in occurs at a secretive genetics institute, a blind puzzle-maker overhears an attempt to blackmail an institute scientist shortly before the robbery, and teams up with intrepid reporter to crack the case. Soon the bodies pile up, and the two amateur sleuths find their own lives at risk in their search for the truth.

“an entertaining and involving reminder of why Argento has long been recognized as one of the masters of the giallo thriller…an under-rated gem…features yet another of Ennio Morricone’s remarkable scores” (The Independent Critic)

“The Cat O’ Nine Tales is Argento at his very best…the movie is masterful and truly a great piece of cinema that will have one at the edge of their seat…great filmmaking from start to finish.” (The Movie Aisle)

“Highly recommended.” (The Digital Bits)

*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!

A reporter and a blind, retired journalist try to solve a series of murders. The crimes are connected to experiments by a pharmaceutical company in secret research. The two end up becoming targets of the killer.
