Join us for the return of midnight at the Tivoli Theatre! This month’s feature is Slap Shot! Shown at the Tivoli Theatre on Friday, April 26th at Midnight (Saturday, April 27th 12:01 a.m.). Admission is $5.
Slap Shot: Paul Newman plays Reggie Dunlop, the coach of a pathetic minor-league American hockey team. His career at a standstill and his marriage in tatters, Dunlop has nothing to lose by taking on a new group of players who are one evolutionary step above Neanderthals. Only when the team begins winning does he decide to get behind these players, and to encourage the rest of the team to play as down-and-dirty as the newcomers. Straight-arrow team member Ned Braden (Michael Ontkean) resents this influx of gonzo talent, preferring to play clean. As the film's multitude of subplots play themselves out, Dunlop does his best to keep the outraged Braden on the team.
