FilmBar Delays Opening Until February 10

FilmBar owner Kelly Aubey and Programming Director Steve Weiss announced last night that the downtown film venue is delaying its opening for a week -- the first show will run the night of February 10 instead of February 3.

Weiss says the program schedule has been adjusted -- Red Chapel and Metropolis will still run first, with Thor at the Bus Stop screening at a later date and Marwencol in March (check out the trailers here).

Straight to Hell Returns is still the Friday/Saturday late night film, according to Weiss.

The 21-and-over independent theater at 815 N. Second Street was originally slated to open in November, but has delayed the opening due to city bureaucratic limbo (read: liquor licensing and building plan paperwork and approval delays).

"It takes time to build it right," Weiss says, but promises big results and a few special events during the new opening week.

Stay tuned to the FilmBar website for more details.
