wild tales vert

Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

Wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged, Wild Tales is a subversive satire that doubles as a uniformly entertaining anthology film.

Brunch with Oscar IS BACK!

Starting Sunday, February 1, and continuing every Sunday this February, Civic Theatre of Allentown will celebrate the Academy Awards by hosting its third annual ‘Brunch with Oscar’ film series.

This year, the Sunday morning screenings showcase four different films: It Happened One Night (1935), The Sting (1974), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1976), West Side Story (1962), each of which had success at the Academy Awards.

Before the film screenings, a light complimentary breakfast will be served, featuring foods that reflect the film to be shown. We think this will be a chance to celebrate these films in a fun, different way.

The series kicked off last year with a salute to Award-Winning performances. This year, the focus is on Best Director.

Brunch at 10:30 am & Movie at 11:00 am

General Admission: $12
Members: $10
