Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.

Catlow News and Events

 

First Admission Price Increase Since 2003

The price of admission for movies at The Catlow has been $5.00 since 2003. We are finding ourselves under more pressure to boost our admission price... and soon! We don’t want to end up back on Kickstarter again in 5 years in order to keep our business functioning. The new admission price will be $7.00, still quite a bit less than most other theaters charge.

 

We have noticed an increase in our attendance since adding all the new equipment and amenities, but not as significant of an increase as we had hoped for. We are hoping that by raising our admission,  we will increase our chances of getting more recent movie titles earlier in their release, thus, boosting our attendance.

 

We feel that we can keep the Catlow going with this admission increase. It will help us keep on top of our monthly expenses and allow us to continue making the necessary repairs and upgrades that a theater of this age requires.

Catlow Gift Cards Available

Noah Baumbach

Comedy, Drama

 

MPAA Rating:

R for language.

 

Runtime:

1 hour 34 minutes

 

Synopsis:

Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class. They tried to start a family and were unable to — and have decided they’re okay with that. But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion — retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next.

 

For Josh, it’s as if a door has opened back to his youth — or a youth he wishes he once had. It’s not long before the restless forty-somethings, Josh and Cornelia, throw aside friends their own age — including Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz in a sly supporting role — to trail after these young hipsters who seem so plugged in, so uninhibited, so Brooklyn cool. “Before we met,” Josh admits to Jamie, “the only two feelings I had left were wistful and disdainful.” But is this new inspiration enough to sustain collaboration and friendship with a couple twenty years their junior?

Arriving in Istanbul, he is thrust into a vastly different world, where he encounters others who suffered their own losses in the conflict: Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko), a strikingly beautiful but guarded hotelier raising a child alone; her young, spirited son, Orhan (Dylan Georgiades), who finds a friend in Connor; and Major Hasan (Yilmaz Erdoğan), a Turkish officer who fought against Connor’s boys and may be this father’s only hope.

 

With seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his path, Connor must travel across the battle-scarred Turkish landscape to find the truth… and his own peace.
