East Brunswick Luxury Cinemas 13 mans more than 200 screens from the Midwest to the West Coast. In each theater, digital projectors enthrall audience members seated in comfy stadium-style chairs with vivid images, and surround-sound speakers crisply broadcast every roar of an engine in hot pursuit and every romantic slurp of soda. To make the cinematic experience maximally cushy, guests at many locations also can sink into luxury leather seating and chew thoughtfully on East Brunswick Luxury Cinemas 13's signature $1 hot dogs.
An endless amount of stories flicker across the screen at these cinemas, which offer stadium seating and digital sound. The theater plays films chosen from Hollywood’s newest releases, featuring stars just plucked from the vines where they grow in the California hills. Between whispered critiques of each preview, audience members can wash down fluffy kernels of popcorn with soda from the concession stand. The theater also opens its doors for birthday parties and large private screenings for up to 300 guests.
With a diverse lineup of more than 50 features, the Lighthouse International Film Festival will pull back its curtain on June 3 for three days of films, panel discussions, networking, and parties. The nonprofit festival is dedicated to exposing innovative and compelling new contributions to the world of the moving image, granting audiences a sneak preview of the next generation of moviemaking talent while attracting a crew of serious critics, producers, and other movie-biz wizzes. Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear helm a star-studded cast in the opening-night film, Salvation Boulevard, which begins at 6 p.m. at the Foundation of the Arts and Sciences. Thereafter, feast eyes on a variety of genres and formats, including Dying to Do Letterman—a documentary that chronicles comedian Steve Mazan’s quest to perform his standup routine on David Letterman’s show, which becomes more urgent when he learns he may only have five years left to live. Fictional offerings include the Israeli feature-length Andante, about the only person who continues to dream in a nearly dreamless dystopia. A selection of both short and feature-length films ensures an apt match for attention spans of all shapes and sizes.
