Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool
(Rated R, 106 min.)
Based on Peter Turner's memoir, the film follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner (Bell) and the eccentric Academy Award (R)-winning actress Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening) in 1978 Liverpool. What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale and her young lover quickly grows into a deeper relationship, with Turner being the person Gloria turns to for comfort. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control. Also starring Jamie Bell, Julie Walters, Vanessa Redgrave and Stephen Graham.

The Chelsea’s Future

On November 16 we will have started our 28th year of operation. Now in the last year of our current 5 year lease, with only a handful of months to go, we must make some serious choices about the future of the Chelsea Theater.

Given the advancing years of the current owner it might be difficult committing to another five year lease. And yet there may be some interest in continuing the legacy of the Chelsea.

The notion of transferring ownership and management to another party would offer an opportunity to carry on providing the community with the quality, personalized, intimate moviegoing experience that has been the hallmark of the Chelsea Theater.

Any individuals with serious interest in exploring this option may do so by emailing to
chelsea@thechelseatheater.com.

Excerpts from AOL City Guide. . .


This theater has three screens, and its mission is to provide the community with the best independent and foreign movies around. The Chelsea concessions are the gourmet junk-food fare that we have come to expect from art-house theaters (real butter popcorn, gourmet chocolates), and Cup-A-Joe is right next door for a movie caffeine burst.

The Chelsea also serves beer and wine along with its reasonably priced concessions.

1945
(Not Rated, 91 min.)
On a sweltering August day in 1945, villagers prepare for the wedding of the town clerk's son. Meanwhile, two Orthodox Jews arrive at the village train station with mysterious boxes labeled "fragrances." The town clerk fears the men may be heirs of the village's deported Jews and expects them to demand their illegally acquired property back, originally lost during the second World War. Other villagers are afraid more survivors will come, posing a threat to the property and possessions they have claimed as their own.

Faces Places
(Rated PG, 90 min.)
Agnès Varda and JR have things in common: a passion for and the exploration of images in general, and more precisely, for places and for ways of showing, sharing, and exhibiting them. Agnès chose cinema. JR chose to create open air photography galleries. When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, to shoot a film in France, far from cities, during a trip in JR's photographic (and magical) truck. Through chance encounters and prepared projects, they reached out to others, listening to them, photographing them, and sometimes putting them on posters. This film also tells the story of Agnès and JR's friendship, which grew stronger throughout the film shoot, between surprises and teasing, and while laughing about their differences.
