“BOYHOOD”-Early Oscar Contender Coming to the Reg

JAMESTOWN- The following is from the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts:

Early Oscar contender, BOYHOOD, will show at the Reg Lenna Center for The Arts on Saturday September 20 at 8 p.m.,Sunday September 21 at 2 p.m. and Wednesday September 24 at 8 p.m.  It is the next in the Movies @ The Reg series.

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep BlueBoyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.  Directed by Richard Linklater (Before Sunrise, Dazed and Confused, School of Rock.) The film is rated R and runs for 164 minutes.

Two movies will show the following weekend.  The Western New York premiere of 37: A Final Promise, co-written by Westfield native, Jesse Stratton, will be shown one night only on Friday September 26 at 8 p.m.  Mr. Stratton will be part of a talkback with the audience immediately following the film.  Luc Besson’s science fiction thriller, Lucy – starring Scarlett Johansson – will show Saturday September 27 and Wednesday October 1 at 8 p.m.
