August 22–October 6, 2019


In a suburban movie house we meet three employees: Sam, a man in his 30s who still lives with his parents; Rose, a woman in her twenties struggling to be cool; and Avery, a male college student and film trivia genius. Race, class, and the universal quest for intimacy are intricately interwoven in this fascinating slice of Americana. “Funny, heartbreaking, sly, and unblinking.” –The New York Times

Utilizing the power of silence through impressively realistic dialogue, The Flick runs 180 minutes, including one intermission.
