Bobby Stone Film Series

The Tivoli Theater Foundation, with its history of film, is excited to host The Bobby Stone Film Series at the Tivoli. Named in honor of Chattanooga native and Tivoli Theatre Foundation Director Emeritus Bobby Stone, this unique series will bring film back to the Tivoli with the spirit of Bobby’s expert eye and passion for film, featuring both first run and classic titles. Films will include arthouse and other distinctive programming reflective of Bobby’s love of cinema and his own skill in cinematography and capture of light. These showings would not be possible without recent generous contributions towards the installation of new equipment and a renovated projection room. Current screenings at The Bobby Stone Film Series at the Tivoli Theatre are as follows: 

US Saturday, May 24 3PM & 7PM
THE PRINCESS BRIDE Sunday, May 26 2PM & 6PM
THE GREAT GATSBY Saturday, June 1 8PM
CAPTAIN MARVEL Sunday, June 2 2PM & 6PM


This film series launch follows the successful installation of a new state of the art digital sound and projection system valued at $350,000.  The new system includes a brand new 4k digital projector, immersive surround sound, and a 50-foot drop down screen, the largest of its kind in North America.  Made possible by a major gift from Bobby Stone’s family and friends, this new equipment brings film projection back to the ‘Jewel of the South,’ in a world-class way.  Keith Sanford, Board Chairman of the Tivoli Foundation, remarks, “the Tivoli Theater Foundation is proud of the recent turnaround it has seen since assuming control of the Theatre in 2015. The return of film programming into one of the country’s best venues will only build on that success.”

Us

Accompanied by her husband, son and daughter, Adelaide Wilson returns to the beachfront home where she grew up as a child. Haunted by a traumatic experience from the past, Adelaide grows increasingly concerned that something bad is going to happen. Her worst fears soon become a reality when four masked strangers descend upon the house, forcing the Wilsons into a fight for survival. When the masks come off, the family is horrified to learn that each attacker takes the appearance of one of them.

 

The Princess Bride 

Rob Reiner’s 1987 American romantic fantasy comedy film tells the story about a farmhand, Westley, and the rescuing of his true love, Princess Buttercup, from the odious Prince Humperdinck. The film stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin and many more outstanding actors. The story is presented in the film as a book being read by the grandfather (Peter Falk) to his sick grandson (Fred Savage), thus preserving the novel’s narrative style and capturing the film’s audience. The film was inducted into the National Film Registry in 2016 and deemed as “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.” It was ranked number 50 on Bravo’s “100 Funniest Movies” and number 88 on the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 greatest film love stories.

 

The Great Gatsby 

Midwest native Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) arrives in 1922 New York in search of the American dream. Nick, a would-be writer, moves in next-door to millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering husband, Tom (Joel Edgerton). Thus, Nick becomes drawn into the captivating world of the wealthy and -- as he bears witness to their illusions and deceits -- pens a tale of impossible love, dreams, and tragedy.

 

Captain Marvel 

Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers.
