Get Out

“A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”

On Thursday, July 2, the Rio Theatre is baaa-aaack! We’re getting ready to fire up our glorious projector, butter your popcorn, and maybe…. sink into the floor with writer-director Jordan Peele‘s game changing, groundbreaking, and yes – Oscar-winning – work of socially satirical horror, GET OUT.

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. With Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford.

“Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, GET OUT seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He’s made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you’re laughing even as you’re thinking, and vice-versa.” (TIME Magazine)

Jordan Peele’s GET OUT is the satirical horror movie we’ve been waiting for, a mash-up of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? and The Stepford Wives that’s more fun than either and more illuminating, too.” (Vulture)
