The Rapture

Double Feature with THE PROPHECY (4:45, 9:15)

1991 • dir Michael Tolkin w/Mimi Rogers, David Duchovny, Kimberly Cullum, Will Patton • 100 min • 35mm

Lead by a stunning performance from Mimi Rogers, THE RAPTURE follows Sharon, a lost soul who becomes a born again Christian as part of a sect that fervently believes that Judgement Day is at hand. After a tragic accident, however, she begins to doubt the benevolence of God and retreats to the desert with her daughter to await what she believes is inevitable… And then The Rapture happens. Writer/director Michael Tolkin boldly depicts the events of the Christian Apocalypse matter-of-factly which makes them all the more shocking and frightening.

“One of the most radical, infuriating, engrossing, challenging movies I’ve ever seen.”
– Roger Ebert
