Welcome to Kenny's Korner!
Each Thursday for the past decade, I have put out a commentary on the week's films, Vine happenings and fun information in the form of Kenny's Korner. This has been in our weekly email newsletter. Please sign up for this newsletter to get my commentary, and the best information about the Vine. Below is this week's Kenny Korner - enjoy!
This week we are proud to be offering a rare family/animated film starting TODAY! SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 is the first major animated & family film to be released in theatres since Sing 2 on Christmas Day! We hope that you will choose to take the kids or grandkids to see it at the Vine where you will encounter a relaxed environment, and more space in between you and your neighbors than our competitors.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 plays today, Thursday, April 7th at 4:10 & 6:45. It then plays Friday April 8th to the 15th at 1:00, 4:00 & 6:45. Tickets are available online, on Fandango or always in person.
We had a well above average turnout for CODA, the Oscar WINNER for Best Picture, Best Actor and Adapted Screenplay! It won all three of the categories it was nominated for. It has critic’s reviews at 94% and audience reviews at 91% on RottenTomatoes – one of the RARE films with both sets of reviews above 90%!
CODA Synopsis: CODA follows 17-year-old Ruby, the only hearing child in a deaf family, as she finds herself torn between pursuing her love of music and her family's reliance on her as their interpreter and connection to the hearing world.
Join us tonight, Thursday, April 7th for one of our most popular family films of all time – HARRY POTTER and the SORCERER’S STONE! This screening is also timed out perfectly to be shown just before the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which opens at the Vine on April 15th.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is now over 20 years old! The film franchise released an amazing EIGHT films, not counting the Fantastic Beasts spinoffs. If you a Harry Potter fan, tonight’s screening of how it all began is a must-see!
As mentioned above, THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE is a new film that is opening at the Vine next Thursday, April 14th! Tickets are now on sale for the 4:00 and 7:00 “sneak peek” screenings, and for the regular showings that start on Friday the 15th.
Synopsis: Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team on a dangerous mission.
We have some wonderful adult and indepdent titles coming to the Vine in late spring and early summer. However, sometimes we must play more mainstream films that draw bigger crowds and "keep the lights on!" Thank you to all of you that support the Vine in anyway you can - coming to see our new films, our classics nights or by dropping by to purchase a TOGO Jumbo Popcorn Tub!
We hope that you will continue to spread the word that the Vine Cinema & Alehouse is the valley’s only movie theatre showing independent films, sporting events and classics, while serving beer, wine and food.
