On March 21st, FOX Searchlight Pictures opens THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, the latest film by Wes Anderson, at the Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts.). In anticipation of the opening of THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, Cleveland Cinemas is presenting four of Anderson’s previous films at the Cedar Lee Theatre and the Capitol Theatre which showcase the director’s quirky and unique cinematic voice.

BOTTLE ROCKET (1996)
Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 7:30 PM
Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd, Cleveland Hts.)
Admission: $5.00
Wes Anderson’s first film, Bottle Rocket, is a hilarious story with an original twist on the importance of friendship.Three friends ineptly pursue a life of crime while sharing dreams of the lives they wish they had. Anthony (Luke Wilson) seeks true love. Bob (Robert Musgrove) yearns for a family. And Dignan (Owen Wilson) pursues a distinguished career in crime. After his release from a mental hospital following a psychological breakdown, the directionless Anthony joins up with his friend Dignan, who has come up with an outlandish scheme for a crime spree that somehow involves his former boss, the supposedly legendary Mr. Henry (James Caan). With the help of their pathetic neighbor and pal Bob, the three pull a job and hit the road. Along the way the would-be thieves each get what they wanted, but in ways they never expected.
 
THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS (2002)
Thursday, March 6, 2014 at 7:30 PM
Capitol Theatre (1390 W. 65th St., Cleveland)
Admission: $5.00
Wes Anderson received his first Oscar nomination for the screenplay to this star-studded comedy. Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife Etheline (Anjelica Huston) had three children - Chas, Richie and Margot, and then they separated. Chas (Ben Stiller) started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of fifty thousand dollars in the ninth grade. Richie (Luke Wilson) was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure and disaster.

Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd, Cleveland Hts.)

With his friends and neighbors, Fox saves his animal community and beats the farmers at their own game. Nominated for the Best Animated Feature Academy Award.
