Two is better than one
Reg Lenna Center to show a pair of movies next week
JAMESTOWN — Reg Lenna Center for The Arts continues its fall movie season with the post-apocalyptic thriller “It Comes at Night” showing Wednesday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. and the comic-book movie “Spider-Man: Homecoming” showing Saturday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m.
“It Comes at Night” stars Joel Edgerton (“Black Mass”) and Carmen Ejogo (“Selma”). Secure within a desolate home after an unnamed cataclysm with his vigilant, protective and heavily armed parents (Edgerton and Ejogo), 17-year-old Travis (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) navigates fear, grief and paranoia amid scarce resources as a desperate young couple (Christopher Abbott and Riley Keough) seeks refuge in his family home with their young child. Despite the best intentions of both families, panic and mistrust boil over as the horrors of the outside world creep ever closer. But they are nothing compared to the horrors within, where Travis discovers that his father’s commitment to protecting the family may cost him his soul. “It Comes at Night” is rated R and is 97 minutes long.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” stars Tom Holland (“The Lost City of Z”), Michael Keaton (“Birdman”, “Spotlight”) and Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man”). A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Holland), who made his sensational debut in “Captain America: Civil War,” begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero. Thrilled by his experience with the “Avengers”, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Downey Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man — but when the Vulture (Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is Rated PG-13 and is 133 minutes long.
Coming up in the Movies @ The Reg series are the vampire comedy-thriller “The Lost Boys” (Oct. 11 at 7 p.m.), Disney-Pixar’s “Cars 3” (Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 14 at 2 p.m.), the paranormal drama “Poltergeist” (Oct. 18 at 7 p.m.), the horror film John Carpenter’s “The Thing” (Oct. 21 at 8 p.m.) and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Oct. 27 at 10 p.m.
