    Is there a call to action here gang? We were just there, watching a great documentary about a French filmmaker. The staff was charming, and barely competent — as always. But that’s part of the charm. Is there a problem we need to know about?

    Kevin, the occasionally show porn. ;-)

  3. I saw ‘Synecdoche, New York’ there and it was the boooooomb! Wasn’t playing anyplace else, either.

      i had a similar experience w.r.t. the roxie, synecdoche, and it being the bomb

      i saw it in the little roxie though as i recall and i’m not too hyped on that thing’s setup. a little too much like watching a movie in someone’s garage.

      I saw Synechdoche there too!

    I saw Harvard Man there, and it had the most realistic portrayal of an LSD trip I’ve seen on film….

    I want to love the Roxie so bad, I do, I really do, but it is a dump. I’m sad, why can’t we have nice things?

    I really wish the Roxie would just play something fun for once instead of depressing social documentaries and depressing dramas. How about a whole week of Star Trek movies, or a Back to the Future triple feature night?

    • suckerpunch says:

      Isn’t something “fun” whats playing at almost EVERY other theater?
      How about just a little tiny shred of thoughtfulness occasionally rather than blind dumb “fun” 100% of the time?

    I’ve seen a 3 Stooges film fest there…what’s the problem?

    That picture hides the broken glass on the box office.

    And the homeless that sleep in front of its doors every night.
