“I sincerely believe that to see good films, and to see important films, is one of the most profoundly civilizing experiences that we can have as people.” -- Roger Ebert
Now in our 14th year of presenting films on the big screen, there are more choices than ever when it comes to when, where, and how to see a movie. From phones and laptops to 60-inch widescreen televisions, movies are everywhere.
And yet the Cinema Tuesdays series has been successful.
We think it’s because the communal
experience of seeing a great movie together, in a darkened theater, on a BIG screen, is still the best way to experience a movie. Join us this summer for the 2014 Cinema Tuesdays series!
Screenings take place at the Santikos Bijou, located in the Wonderland of the Americas (4522 Fredericksburg Rd.), on Tuesday nights from May 27 - July 29. Showtime is 7:30 each week, with the exception of the July 22nd screenings, which will be at 6:45 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.. The box office opens one hour before show time. Some screenings can sell out. Please arrive early to ensure optimal seating choice.
Suggested donations of $10 for members and $15 for non-members will get you in for these one-time only showings!

July 29 - E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
Is there anything that hasn't already been said about Steven Spielberg's "E.T."? This magical fantasy about a young boy who befriends an otherworldly visitor is "bathed in warmth," as Pauline Kael once said, and "seems to clear all the bad thoughts out of your head." 115 minutes, Rated PG.
