Happy Holidays from all of us at Lincoln Theater! We will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 24 and Thursday, Nov. 25 for Thanksgiving so the staff may enjoy the holiday. After you’ve slept off that turkey dinner, head on down to Lincoln Theater because Bond is back. In his fifth and final performance as the famous 007, Daniel Craig “rocks a tuxedo and tosses off double-entendres with ease” (NPR’s Fresh Air). With shocking developments and twists, as well as some throwback tributes to Bond films of the past, this latest in the series is a must see on the big screen. Take a step back from the pressures of your normal day to day and lose yourself in the car chases, martinis, exotic locales, and the beloved spectacle that is Bond … James Bond.
“No Time To Die” - (PG-13; 2 hours, 43 minutes) - James Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. Starring Daniel Craig, Ana de Armas, and Oscar winner Rami Malek. Playing at 2 and 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 26 and Saturday, Nov. 27; Sunday, Nov. 28 at 2 p.m.; Wednesday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. and on Thursday, Dec. 2 at 2 p.m.
“Ace in the Hole” – Classic Film Club, Season 4, Films of Billy Wilder - (1951; 1 hour, 51 minutes) - In this classic film, with flaws that outweigh his talent, reporter Chuck Tatum (Kirk Douglas) has bounced across the country from job to job. Winding up in New Mexico, Tatum gets work from the local newspaper, but finds that there’s not much in the way of pressing news. However, when Tatum catches wind of a treasure hunter (Richard Benedict) trapped in a mine shaft, he turns the story into a media sensation. Soon Tatum is using unscrupulous tactics to draw out the situation, an approach that comes back to haunt him. Pre-film talk and introduction by special guest and film historian, Jeannie MacDonald. Playing Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. and on Friday, Dec. 3 at 2 p.m. Tickets: $8/adult, $6/theater members; and free for Classic Film Club members.
