The Booksellers

Available Fri-Thur July 10-16
$4.99 for a 3-day rental
Documentary (not rated)  1hr 40 min

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. The Booksellers takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers.

" A treat for anyone who appreciates the printed word. "- Hollywood Reporter
"Inviting viewers into a fascinating world of bibliophiles, The Booksellers is a documentary that's easy to curl up and get lost in." - Critics Consensus

       Greetings Everyone !    We hope you are well!

The big question we are asked is "When will you re-open?"
The short answer is "We Don't Know".

Having said that, we are busy preparing for the day when the marquee will host a movie title again. We are taking a number of measures to ensure your safety when you do return and as that day gets closer we will share what these are and what we will be doing. The bottom line is, yes there will be changes (however temporary), but one thing  remains the same: the magic of the movies.

Thank you for all the support and words of encouragement during this time. It's not something we take for granted.

In the meantime we are offering virtual cinema and are open for walk-up concessions on Friday & Saturday, 6:30-8pm, with a limited menu. So if you watch on the weekend, stop by the theatre,  pick-up your concessions and make it a Crystal Theatre movie night!

We hope this gets you excited about coming back to the movies !  We look forward to seeing you, Kathy & Bob
