United States. 2019/1979. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola. (183 mins.) Rated R.

Restored from the original negative for the first time ever, Apocalypse Now Final Cut is Coppola's most realized version of the film, which was nominated for eight Academy Awards (R), won three Golden Globes (R) (Best Original Score, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actor - Motion Picture, 1980), and is one of AFI's top 100 films. Coppola's visually dazzling masterpiece is a surreal, hallucinatory, epic tragedy about the horror of the Vietnam War. A U.S. Army Intelligence officer is sent on a bizarre river journey deep into the jungle to assassinate Colonel Kurtz, a renegade Green Beret who uses primitive tribesmen to wage his own war.

United States. 2019. Directed by Ben Berman. (90 mins.) Not Rated.

THE AMAZING JOHNATHAN DOCUMENTARY begins as a profile on a uniquely deranged magician who built a career out of shock and deception in the 1980s, but becomes the bizarre story about the unravelling of his documentarian. 

'The Amazing Johnathan', with his irreverent magic act, rose to popularity landing one of the longest residencies in Las Vegas. However in 2014, Johnathan was diagnosed with a terminal heart condition and given only one year to live, forcing him to retire his act. Fast forward to three years later, Johnathan is still alive and chooses to return to the stage. Filmmaker Ben Berman sets out to capture The Amazing Johnathan's comeback tour while peeling back the curtain on his unique, meth-fueled life. 

But the seemingly straightforward profile of this eccentric illusionist starts careening off the rails as Johnathan drops a bombshell that sends the film spiraling into uncertainty. As we delve deeper to determine what's real and what's illusion, hard questions are raised, uncovering deeper truths about the ethics of filmmaking and human nature.

Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool

Advance tickets available now at our box office during regular business hours or online at boxofficetickets.com! no coupons, passes or CineBucks accepted for special events. **ONLINE TICKET SALES CLOSE ONCE OUR DOORS OPEN THE DAY OF THE EVENT**

United States. 2019. Directed by Stanley Nelson. (115 mins.) Not Rated.

Miles Davis: Horn player, bandleader, innovator. Elegant, intellectual, vain. Callous, conflicted, controversial. Magnificent, mercurial. Genius. The very embodiment of cool. The man with a sound so beautiful it could break your heart.

The central theme of Miles Davis's life was his restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms. It made him a star—it also made him incredibly difficult to live with for the people who loved him most. Again and again, in music and in life, Miles broke with convention—and when he thought his work came to represent a new convention, he changed it again. His bold disregard for tradition, his clarity of vision, his relentless drive, and constant thirst for new experiences made him an inspiring collaborator to fellow musicians and a cultural icon to generations of listeners. It made him an innovator in music—from bebop to “cool jazz,” modern quintets, orchestral music, jazz fusion, rock ‘n’ roll, and even hip-hop.

Featuring never-before-seen archival footage, studio outtakes, and rare photos, Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool tells the story of a truly singular talent and unpacks the man behind the horn.

On The Waterfront a Salem Cinema Reel Change For Our Community Event to benefit Salem Symphonic Winds
Sunday, November 3rd at 7PM!
All seats
$12 in advance or $15 day of the event

Advance tickets available now at our box office during regular business hours or online at boxofficetickets.com! no coupons, passes or CineBucks accepted for special events. **ONLINE TICKET SALES CLOSE ONCE OUR DOORS OPEN THE DAY OF THE EVENT**

UK. 2019. Directed by Elia Kazan. (108 mins.) Not Rated.

Salem Symphonic Winds will feature the music of Leonard Bernstein at their November 17th concert at the Elsinore Theatre, including Suite from On The Waterfront, his only score for movies.

This classic story of Mob informers was based on a number of true stories and filmed on location in and around the docks of New York and New Jersey. Mob-connected union boss Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb) rules the waterfront with an iron fist. The police know that he's been responsible for a number of murders, but witnesses play deaf and dumb ("plead D & D"). Washed-up boxer Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) has had an errand-boy job because of the influence of his brother Charley, a crooked union lawyer (Rod Steiger). Witnessing one of Friendly's rub-outs, Terry is willing to keep his mouth shut until he meets the dead dockworker's sister, Edie (Eva Marie Saint). Waterfront has often been seen as an allegory of "naming names" against suspected Communists during the anti-Communist investigations of the 1950s. On the Waterfront won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor for Brando, and Best Supporting Actress for Saint.

We will also show the short feature on Bernstein's scoring for the film following the feature!
