A Message from VP of Programming and Co-Artistic Director of FilmColumbia Peter Biskind

The Crandell is now open with a Thursday through Sunday schedule reflecting changes in the movie industry and viewing habits exacerbated by closures caused by the pandemic. By showing a variety of films from different distributors and independents, the Crandell can offer a greater variety of movies and thus continue to serve a wide spectrum of the community. Additionally, the Crandell will have the opportunity to experiment Monday-Wednesday with mini-festivals and topical programming including seasonal features as well as films by celebrated directors. “We like the flexibility this new schedule provides.” Biskind says, “We are all anxious to get back into the theater!”

The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster’s myth.

“Director Nia DaCosta doesn’t merely write or whisper, she paints a large canvas encompassing generations of trauma, and then proceeds to shout the name from the rooftops: Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. And through those acts, Candyman looms larger than he ever has before, casting a shadow over the past and present.” — Richard Newby, Hollywood Reporter
