Capitol adds shows for ‘Little Pink House’
Cinema Capitol had added show times to the scheduled run of the movie “Little Pink House.” Originally slated to end on Thursday, shows have been added for 1 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday.
The movie is based on the true story of Susette Kelo, a resident of New London, Conn., whose property, as well as those of her many neighbors, was taken from her by the city in an eminent domain case.
Because of the local controversy surrounding the prospective building of a hospital in a section of downtown Utica, the screenings in Rome have attracted attention of the No Hospital Downtown group, the theater noted. According to Little Pink House’s website at littlepinkhousemovie.com, Cinema Capitol is the only location in upstate New York showing the film. Also, according to the website, there are no other screenings scheduled in New York State after the run of the movie in Rome and in two cinemas in New York City, where it is also playing.
The movie stars two-time Academy Award-nominee Catherine Keener as Kelo, and is based on the book by Jeff Benedict; it was scripted and directed by Courtney Balaker. The Hollywood Reporter says of the movie, “The bottom line—it hits a nerve…unmistakable timeliness…’Little Pink House’ brings urgency to a fascinating, underexplored theme.”
The movie, rated R for occasional strong language, will be screening at Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., on Tuesday through Thursday, at 7:15 each evening, and on Friday and Saturday, at 1 p.m. It runs 98 minutes.
