Knickerbocker Theatre Announces
Its Winter Film Series

Posted February 6, 2001

HOLLAND -- The Knickerbocker Theatre will present its Winter Film Series on Monday, Feb. 19, through Friday, March 16.

Opening the series is "Autumn Tale," the final film in French director Eric Rohmer's "Tales of the Four Seasons" cycle. The romantic comedy centers on a middle- aged widow's quest for love, and the complications that arise when more than one person plays matchmaker. "Autumn Tale" is in French with English subtitles, and is rated PG. It plays at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. nightly on Monday-Saturday, Feb. 19-24, and has a running time of 1 hour and 52 minutes. On Thursday, Feb. 22, there will be a 9 p.m. showing only.

Playing from Monday, Feb. 26, though Saturday, March 3, is "Not One Less," a story of a 13-year-old girl's struggle as a substitute teacher in a rural Chinese town. The film is in Chinese with English subtitles, and showings are at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. nightly. It is rated G and has a running time of 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Showing on Monday-Saturday, March 5-10, is "George Washington," which follows a group of children in the rural South who must come to grips with reality and consequences when, during an innocent game in an abandoned amusement park, a member of the group dies. This film, already receiving critical acclaim, is unrated and has a running time of 1 hour and 30 minutes. Showings are 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. nightly.

The last film of the series is "Dark Days," a documentary studying a community of homeless people living in an abandoned train tunnel beneath Manhattan. While making the film, director Marc Singer made the tunnels his home for two years, not only with the full cooperation of the underground community, but with members of the community acting entirely as the crew. "Dark Days" plays on Tuesday- Friday, March 13-16, at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. nightly. It is unrated and has a running time of 1 hour and 30 minutes.

The Knickerbocker Theatre is located at 86 East 8th Street in downtown Holland. Admission is $4 for students and senior citizens, and $5 for adults. There are no showings on Sundays. Additional information may be obtained by calling the Knickerbocker Information Line at (616) 395-7403.
