Something New for Film Series

Macomb, IL – The International Film Series in Macomb resumes this week. But it won't open with a movie.

The operators of the Rialto Cinemas decided they wanted to try something a little different this time around. So they will host an open house on Wednesday January 20, 5:00pm - 7:00pm.

Manager Larry Jarvis says at around 6:30pm they'll show previews of many of the films on the new schedule.

"It's just a chance to give people an idea of what the movies are about," says Jarvis.

Jarvis will also be on hand to provide a synopsis of each film. In addition, posters of the movies will be available for viewing. The show times will be included with the posters.

Admission will be $6.00 for shows that begin before 6:00. After that the price is $7.25.

January 27 & 28: The Road
