Opera House Cinema Series To Screen ‘Flight’

FREDONIA – “Flight,” the mystery thriller starring Denzel Washington, is the next featured film at the 1891 Fredonia Opera House. It will be screened on Saturday and Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Opera House Cinema Series.

In “Flight,” Academy Award-winner Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot, who miraculously crash-lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board.

After the crash, Whitaker is hailed as a hero; but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault and what really happened on the plane. Directed by Robert Zemekis, “Flight” also stars John Goodman, Don Cheadle and Melissa Leo. “Flight” runs 138 minutes.

Tickets are available at the door for $7 for adults, $6.50 for seniors and Opera House members, and $5 for students the night of each screening. A book of 10 movie passes is available for $60 at the door or online at www.fredopera.org. For more information, call the Opera House Box Office at 679-1891. The series continues with “Life of Pi,” the critically acclaimed survival epic from director Ang Lee, on Jan. 19 and 22; and “Anna Karenina,” starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law, on Jan. 26 and 29.
