Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will present the science fiction horror movie “The Endless” for limited show times on Friday, May 18, Saturday, May 19, and Wednesday, May 23 at 9:30 p.m.
In the film, two brothers (Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead) receive a cryptic video message inspiring them to revisit the UFO death cult they escaped a decade earlier.
Hoping to find the closure that they couldn’t as young men, they’re forced to reconsider the cult’s beliefs when confronted with unexplainable phenomena surrounding the camp.
As the members prepare for the coming of a mysterious event, the brothers race to unravel the seemingly impossible truth before their lives become permanently entangled with the cult.
The movie was awarded Best Feature Film at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival and was nominated for Best American Independent Feature Film at the 2918 Cleveland International Film Festival.
The Washington Post writes that it is “spooky, funny, touching and very, very well made.” RogerEbert.com also writes “A movie that plays with our perceptions of time, space, and reality, and sketches the outlines of unimaginable terror.” The movie has a 97 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The film runs 112 minutes and is not rated. Admission is $7, $6 for students and military and $5 for Capitol Friends. Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol Theatre box office (315-337-6453) and online at www.romecapitol.com.
