What's New

A STAR IS BORN now playing at your YES Cinema!

  Janet, then Judy, Barbra & now Gaga!

In this new take on the tragic love story, Bradley Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers--and falls in love with--struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer... until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally's career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.

With appealing leads, deft direction  (by Cooper), and an affecting love story, A Star Is Born is a remake done right -- and a reminder that some stories can be just as effective in the retelling.

FIRST MAN now in orbit at YES!

    Where were you on July 20, 1969?

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures' First Man, the riveting story of NASA's mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie explores the sacrifices and the cost on Armstrong and on the nation of one of the most dangerous missions in history.

Have we got a deal for you! - See THE STING at YESfest!
  Friday, Oct. 26 at 7:15pm - One Night Only!
Four years after setting box offices ablaze in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and director George Roy Hill re-teamed with similar success for The Sting. Redford plays Depression-era confidence trickster Johnny Hooker, whose friend and mentor Luther Coleman (Robert Earl Jones) is murdered by racketeer/gambler Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). Hoping to avenge Luther's death, Johnny begins planning a "sting" -- an elaborate scam -- to destroy Lonnegan. He enlists the aid of "the greatest con artist of them all," Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman), who pulls himself out of a drunken stupor and rises to the occasion.

The Original HALLOWEEN comes to YES Cinema Halloween week!

   Limited Screamngs...er, Screenings!

Scary, suspenseful, and viscerally thrilling, Halloween set the standard for modern horror films. Carpenter obviously knew the genre well and he builds a properly terrifying atmosphere through his well-paced direction. Why "Halloween" works is because even in its flaws, there's an inherent charm to the basic effectiveness and fundamental workmanship on display and it's that's hard to say that about many films who have tried to follow in its footsteps ever since.  Showtimes to be announced soon!




MONROVIA, INDIANA comes to Columbus!

    Coming to YES in November

Legendary documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman explores the conflicting stereotypes of small town America and illustrates how values like community service, duty, spiritual life, generosity and authenticity are formed, experienced and lived. The film gives a complex and nuanced view of daily life in Monrovia and provides some understanding of a rural, mid-American way of life that has always been important in America but whose influence and force have not always been recognized or understood in the big cities on the east and west coasts of America and in other countries.
