When you come to the theater, stop by the box office with your E-ticket or order info to claim your free ticket to the second half of the double feature.
“Hal Ashby’s debut clearly sprang from the mind behind ‘Harold and Maude’. It’s the tale of a bourgeois brat (Beau Bridges) from an old-money family who buys a tenement block in a black neighbourhood intending to create the perfect bachelor pad, but ends up falling for the residents instead. Loose, funky and rough around the edges in that screw-sense-let’s-try-it fashion, ‘The Landlord’ succeeds thanks to terrific performances, political nous, flawless photography from Gordon Willis, a handful of sublimely witty moments and an overall sense of rebellious fun.” TimeOut
