Join us at the AFS Cinema’s First Birthday Bash, a fun pre-screening celebration featuring birthday treats, a champagne toast, photo booth, the kick-off of our first-ever winner-takes-all Birthday Raffle, and an advance preview of Sony Pictures Classics’ new film PUZZLE. Party starts in our lobby at 6 PM.
In this highly anticipated and acclaimed film, Kelly MacDonald who, since wowing us all in 1996’s TRAINSPOTTING, has gone on to become one of the finest actresses on the planet, delivers something of a definitive performance. Expect major awards buzz for her. She finds just the right tone as a loving but taken-for-granted suburban housewife and mother, who develops an interest in solving jigsaw puzzles and begins to grow out of her accustomed role into something more fulfilling and challenging. India’s Irrfan Khan (THE LUNCHBOX) is equally dazzling as her partner in furtive puzzling. As these two practice in secret to enter the world of competitive jigsaw puzzling (yes this is a real thing) a different picture of their lives begins to emerge.
All ticket buyers for the Birthday Bash will have a chance to win two tickets to see John Cusack at the Bass Concert Hall on June 15!
