‘Dunkirk’ to show at Reg Lenna Center Wednesday

JAMESTOWN — Reg Lenna Center for The Arts continues its fall movie season with the historical war drama “Dunkirk,” showing this Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The film is directed by Christopher Nolan (“The Dark Knight,” and “Interstellar”).

Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in. The story unfolds on land, sea and air. RAF Spitfires engage the enemy in the skies above the Channel, trying to protect the defenseless men below. Meanwhile, hundreds of small boats manned by both military and civilians are mounting a desperate rescue effort, risking their lives in a race against time to save even a fraction of their army. The film stars Kenneth Branagh, Oscar-winner Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”) and Tom Hardy. Dunkirk is rated PG-13 and is 120 minutes long.

Coming up in the Movies @ The Reg series are the psychological horror film “It Comes at Night” (Oct. 4 at 7 p.m.), “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (Oct. 7 at 8 p.m.), 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.
