‘MANCHESTER BY THE SEA’ opening this week at Gloucester Cinema
SUCCESS!! Gloucester Cinema, 74 Essex Ave, Gloucester will be showing the locally made movie MANCHESTER BY THE SEA this week. “This movie has had a slow and limited release to the theaters across the United States, and until now Boston was the nearest theater playing it.” stated theater owner John Williams.
Gloucester’s first show will be on Thursday, December 1 at 7 p.m. On Friday and over the weekend matinees will start at 10 a.m. for MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, in addition to the regular show times. On Monday, December 5 thru Thursday, December 8 there will be shows beginning at noon for those who cannot make it over the weekend or want to see it a second time. “It’s not unusual for folks to get confused about what time or day a show will run” commented John so he is advising folks to check the website — gloucestercinema.com — or call the theater’s recording 978-283-9188 for the most up-to-date information.
“I am so excited we are getting MANCHESTER BY THE SEA. I am thankful that Director Kenneth Lonegran wanted to help us give local folks a chance to see his newest movie that was filmed in their home town.” Residents of the Cape Ann area will be thrilled to see the film at a theater much closer to home. It is a great way to get a group of family, friends and neighbors together to enjoy a story that features Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams in a local and well known backdrop. It has fantastic reviews, and it is expected to be nominated for several awards during the awards season.
Gloucester Cinema is easy to find on Route 133, Exit 14 off 128. It is handicap accessible with lots of free parking very close to the front door. While supplies last, there are small movie posters and postcards for those who purchase tickets at the theater. For large group reservations or questions, please call John directly at 781-724-5368.
