*This is the 2000 edition of the film, subtitled “The Version You’ve Never Seen”. This has been the only version available theatrically from Warner Bros for the past two decades.
*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!
