The Ring

Friday, August 9 - Saturday, August 10, 2019

**Please note the late-night screenings on Fri Aug 9 – Sat Aug 10 begin at 12:10am, not 11:59pm!**

Staff Pick! Chosen by Clayton who says: “‘They say once you answer the phone you’ll die in 7 days.’ This film will have you up all night.”

“Elegantly crafted… It’s built around a videotape so sinister that anyone who watches it dies in seven days, and the best thing about the movie is the way it teases us with the revelation of what’s on that tape. The director, Gore Verbinski, uses the electromagnetic ”nowness” of video to give archaic omens a creepy charge… As the Seattle reporter who sees the tape while investigating her niece’s death, Naomi Watts is blond, full-lipped, and wholesomely sensual, with a rare ability to make fear look strong.” – Entertainment Weekly
