Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick St.) will present the current-release drama (with comedic undertones), “Vice,” tonight, Jan. 25, through Thursday, Jan. 31.
“Vice” explores the epic story about how Dick Cheney, a bureaucratic Washington insider quietly became the most powerful man in the world as vice-president to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
Written and directed by Adam McKay, “Vice” stars Christian Bale as Dick Cheney, with Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell, Tyler Perry, and Alison Pill. The 132 minute movie is rated R (for language and some violent images).
CineXpress said, “Absurd, dark and funny, ‘Vice’ manages to work thanks to Bale’s Oscar-worthy turn and McKay’s sense of humor,” while critic Leonard Maltin notes, “‘Vice’ manages to be highly entertaining while offering considerable food for thought. That’s no small feat.”
Tickets for “Vice” are $7, $6 for students and military, and $5 for Capitol Friends. Tickets may be obtained at the door or in advance from Romecapitol.com.
Screening times are Friday and Saturday at 4 and 7 p.m., Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m., and Monday through Thursday at 7 p.m. The Friday at 4 and Sunday at 1 shows are open-captioned for the hearing impaired.
