Jackie Passes

JACKIE is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). JACKIE places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband’s legacy and the world of “Camelot” that they created and loved so well.

Hidden Figures Passes

HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world.  The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

Movie Scene Queen will be holding a screening of HIDDEN FIGURES Tuesday, November 22 at 5 PM at AMC Waterfront 22.  Please comment below with your favorite Taraji P. Henson moment.  There’s something about Taraji!  From Baby Boy (2001) to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) to Fox’s Empire,  I just love the roles she plays and the energy she uses to portray them.

Much Love,

Florence Foster Jenkins Passes

Set in 1940s New York, Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.

In theaters August 12, Florence Foster Jenkins will be screening at AMC Waterfront 22 on Monday, August 8 at 7:30pm.  Please comment below with your favorite Meryl Streep or Hugh Grant moments.  Basically any movie that includes Hugh Grant and love is a film I want to see.  I enjoyed Notting Hill (1999), Love Actually (2003), and Nine Months (1995).

The Infiltrator Passes

Movie Scene Queen invites you to an advance screening of THE INFILTRATOR…

The Infiltrator

Starring Bryan Cranston, Diane Kruger, John Leguizamo, and Benjamin Bratt, a U.S. Customs official (Cranston) uncovers a money laundering scheme involving Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar.  The screening will occur at 7:30pm on Monday, July 11th at the South Side Works theater.  Please comment below with your favorite “drug” movie.  I’m always intrigued and interested in movies involving drugs (don’t ask), but one of my favorites is Paid In Full (2002).

Much Love,

Movie Scene Queen
