THE LATE SHOW!

Fri, Aug 16 – Sun, Aug 18

2019 • dir Olivia Wilde w/Beanie Feldstein, Kaitlyn Dever, Billie Lourd, Molly Gordon, Skyler Gisondo, Diana Silvers, Jason Sudeikis, Lisa Kudrow, Will Forte, Jessica Williams • 102 min • DCP

Expectations for this smart and funny film to become the next Superbad were clearly too high to be met, but it never-the-less tells a current and hilarious story about two overachieving teenagers determined to pack an entire high school career’s worth of partying into one debauched night. The connection between Dever and Feldstein is palpable on screen and the joys, disappointments, and heartfelt moments all land a bit better because of this. Do yourself a favor and don’t wait to watch this one at home, make the time to come and see it in the theater with an audience… you won’t regret it!

Staff Pick! Petra, Cal: “One of the best movies of the year, freakin’ hilarious!”

“Booksmart is a teen sex romp well suited for the summer of 2019: feminist but not preachy, raunchy but not nasty, emotionally intelligent but not sentimental.”
– Dana Stevens, Slate

“It’s a high school movie that doesn’t have sadistic bullies shoving helpless nerds into lockers, just a bunch of kids that, for all their flaws, are kind, funny, worldly, whip-smart and unapologetically themselves.”
– Katie Rife, AV Club

“Puts a fresh spin on the coming-of-age night-of comedy because it’s focused on two girls, one of whom is also queer.”
– Erin Keane, Salon.com
