Happy Friday everyone!
We actually don't have a whole lot going on in theatres this weekend, which might actually be a good thing, because this Saturday is the only day you can take a mini road trip out to Moraga for Lord Blood-Rah's Creatures Con.
Not to be confused with Sinister Creature Con, Creatures Con is a one day celebration of monster kid culture, which includes horror hosts, Sci-fi and horror films, panels, vendors, and (I'm hoping) a lot of horror themed battle jackets. Get tickets and all the info you could want here!
Opening This Week
A Ghost Story (2017)
Limited Theatres Friday 7th (1hr 27min)
With A GHOST STORY, acclaimed director David Lowery (AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS, PETE'S DRAGON) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection. Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life's ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, A GHOST STORY emerges ecstatic and surreal - a wholly unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.
