WE LOVE NIC CAGE Film Series

“To be a good actor you have to be something like a criminal, to be willing to break the rules to strive for something new.”
        - Sir Nicolas Cage

There are none that compare to the great Nic Cage. The man has a range that goes from tear-jerking to laugh-out loud, from mind-bending to mental instability, from silently subtle to the hamiest of ham. He is an actor, an artist, a meme, a genius, but above all else, an entertainer. We are thrilled to present our next Ritz Film Series, WE ❤ NIC CAGE, screening from Sept 2-Oct 9.

With an IMDb that sports 98 acting credits, with another 10 in development, putting together a Nic Cage film series is a very daunting task, and we hope with all our hearts that this one is a roaring success so we can put on many, many more. So here is a selection of but a few masterpieces from the extensive Nic Cage catalogue, including some rare 35mm prints dug up from the archive of 90s action gold, as well as a Ritz premiere of his brand new, fever-dream spectalcular MANDY, and a finale of our programmer’s fave, the Coen Bros legendary RAISING ARIZONA, and we hope this satisfies the hungriest Cage fans.

So, Baby-O, it's not exactly mai-tai’s and yatzee out here but... let's do it!
