Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 23rd at 6:30p for The Master (in 70mm!) at the Coolidge Corner Theatre . Look for Audra wearing a parasite incubator shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED YOU BUY TICKETS IN ADVANCE: http://www.coolidge.org/content/master
Exclusive 70mm Boston engagement!
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for, folks. If the reviews are to be believed, Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film, The Master, is a “landmark American film” (The Daily Telegraph) that “will cause the lame to walk and the blind to see” (The Guardian). In a move befitting such an occasion, the Coolidge has temporarily outfitted our projection booth with 70mm equipment that will allow our audiences to see the film as the director intended it. We are proud to serve as the exclusive 70mm venue for the Greater Boston Area.
Here’s some information about the movie itself: After returning from the Second World War, and having witnessed many horrors, a charismatic intellectual, Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), creates a faith-based organization in an attempt to provide meaning to his now landlocked life. His teachings gather a devout following and he becomes known as “The Master”. His right-hand man Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix), a former drifter and bad boy sailor, begins to question both the belief system and The Master himself.
