Lady Bird
(Rated R, 93 min.)
In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
(Rated R, 115 min.)
THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.

The Chelsea’s Future

On November 16 we will have started our 28th year of operation. Now in the last year of our current 5 year lease, with only a handful of months to go, we must make some serious choices about the future of the Chelsea Theater.

Given the advancing years of the current owner it might be difficult committing to another five year lease. And yet there may be some interest in continuing the legacy of the Chelsea.

The notion of transferring ownership and management to another party would offer an opportunity to carry on providing the community with the quality, personalized, intimate moviegoing experience that has been the hallmark of the Chelsea Theater.

Any individuals with serious interest in exploring this option may do so by emailing to
chelsea@thechelseatheater.com.


Tickets are only available the day of the show.
Box Office opens on Monday-Friday at approximately 615pm and
on Saturday & Sunday at approximately 1245pm.


Prices:
Adults: $9.75
Seniors (65 and over): $8.50
Matinees, Students, Children and Military: $8.00

Need a space to hold a meeting or class? Interested in a private screening of a film (current or otherwise) for your group? The Chelsea Theater is available for rent most Mondays thru Fridays from 9am-5pm! Call 919-929-8428 for more details during theater hours.
Gift Certificates available at the Chelsea concession counter.

Excerpts from AOL City Guide. . .


This theater has three screens, and its mission is to provide the community with the best independent and foreign movies around. The Chelsea concessions are the gourmet junk-food fare that we have come to expect from art-house theaters (real butter popcorn, gourmet chocolates), and Cup-A-Joe is right next door for a movie caffeine burst.

The Chelsea also serves beer and wine along with its reasonably priced concessions.
