Cinematique Presents: "Columbus"

Nov 20, 2017

From Monday, December 4th, to Friday, Demeber 8th, Columbus will be shown in the Ruth and Bucky Stein Theatre at 7pm, Monday to Friday, with an additional show Wednesday at 4pm.

With a near-perfect 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes film review site, Columbus is the sleeper hit of the season. When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana – a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey, a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin's estranged relationship with his father, and Casey's reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother. Stars John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson.

From the Critics:

“The quietly stirring, exquisitely photographed “Columbus” is an art house gem that beautifully illuminates not only the architecture of a small Indiana town, but also the characters who inhabit it.”

David Lewis, SF Gate

“Rarely will images of mighty concrete and stone dwellings set against tranquil waters or a gentle spring shower resonate so powerfully as those on display every day in the southern Indiana city of Columbus, captured so breathtakingly in the film.”

Miriam Di Nunzio, Chicago Sun Times
