Second week of Christie adaptation, scheduling updates

Published 12:37 pm Tuesday, October 17, 2023

This week at Tryon Theatre we have a second week of the newest Agatha Christie adaptation from director and star Kenneth Branaugh, “A Haunting in Venice.” For a review of “A Haunting in Venice,” please see last week’s column. 

Looking ahead to next week, we will not have a film for the actual day of Halloween on Tuesday, October 31, as we are closed each Tuesday. We will, however, starting Wednesday, October 25, be having a week-long pairing of two classics of the horror genre: “Wait Until Dark” and “The Shining.” 

Each of these films will run for three showtimes a piece; two evening shows, and one matinee, respectively. The exact dates of these showtimes are published on our outside poster and our website. With these repertoire films for the Tryon Film Society, we are very rarely able to procure files with subtitles from the studios, which means, unlike our feature films, these older films often are NOT shown with subtitles on Thursdays.

On the note of planning for the future, we would like to briefly address some important dates and closures over the following fall and winter holidays. The Town of Tryon Halloween stroll is on Tuesday, October 31, from 4 to 6 p.m. While we are not open for a film that evening, we will participate in the stroll with a lighted marquee, costumes and small bags of popcorn to hand out to those participating in the stroll. The interior of the theatre will not be open.

For Thanksgiving, we are closed only on Thursday, November 23, but are otherwise open with normal showtimes for the rest of that week. For both the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s, we are open Wednesday through Saturday, but we will be closed Sunday, December 24 and December 31, r along with our typical closures of Monday and Tuesday each week. We will continue to publish these dates in our weekly newsletter and this column as time goes on. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support. We hope to see you for a film soon!
