Colonial Williamsburg’s Kimball Theatre Features Special Late Night Film Screenings This Fall

Colonial Williamsburg’s Kimball Theatre in Merchants Square is screening films after 10 p.m. on Friday nights. These unique, quirky and entertaining films provide area residents, students and guests with late night fun and include:

  • Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure, 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4. In 1987, Eddie and Mitch, two young punks from the Midwest, hung a microphone from their kitchen window to chronicle the bizarre and violent relationship between their middle-aged alcoholic neighbors. The hilarious and harrowing recordings not only developed a cult following and with the rise of the Internet but became one of the world’s first “viral” pop-culture sensations. Not rated.
  • There’s Something About Mary (1998), 10:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11. There’s something about Mary (Cameron Diaz) that still bewitches Ted (Ben Stiller). He’s still crazy about her after all these years and hires private eye Pat Healy (Matt Dillon) to track her down in Miami. This is the extended version of this Farrelly brothers classic comedy with 10 extra minutes. Rated: R.
  • Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, 10:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18. Tucker and Dale are best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house, when they are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. Rated: R.

    Movie admission is $7.50 for adults and $6.50 for seniors and students. For more information, contact the Kimball Theatre box office at (757) 565-8588 or visit www.kimballtheatre.com.

    In 1999, Colonial Williamsburg benefactors Gretchen and the late Bill Kimball made a major gift to renovate the historic facility and to transform it into the multipurpose Kimball Theatre. The 35-seat screening room was underwritten by a grant from the Gladys and Franklin Clark Foundation.

    Located in Williamsburg’s Merchants Square, the beautifully restored Kimball Theatre presents films, live performances, musical concerts and special programs. Creative programming alliances with the College of William and Mary, community organizations and Colonial Williamsburg link the past with the present. The 410-seat theater also houses a 35-seat screening room which enables the theater to offer films to the community seven days a week, even when live performances are staged in the main theater.
