One & Only: Bama Art House

Finding something exciting to do on a summer Tuesday night can often be a challenge, but it can also feel like a necessity after working long hours on Monday and perhaps feeling the turtle-like slowness of the beginning of a work week, a Tuesday night event may help ease the ride up to the peak of Wednesday, the notorious “hump day,” before a breathable downhill slide into the weekend.

Fortunately, Tuscaloosa is home to the Bama Theatre, which is hosting the Bama Art House independent film series from June 14 through July 19, 2016. Each Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. a screening of a contemporary independent film is shown for an inexpensive and relaxing night out. The films boast well-known actors and actresses, such as Australian actress Rose Byrne, best known for her role in the comedy “Neighbors,” and Don Cheadle, an American actor who has had a variety of enviable roles, including his role as James Rhodes in several Marvel movies.

Upcoming films include “The Lobster,” starring Collin Farrell; “High Rise,” starring Tom Hiddleston and Sienna Miller; and “Marguerite,” starring Catherine Frot.

Prior to the 7:30 p.m. movie showing, the Bama Theatre opens its box office at 6:30 p.m. and its doors and bar at 6:45 p.m. for early bird drink specials. Tickets are $8 for general admission, $7 for students and seniors, and $6 for art council members. Season punch cards are also available for purchase.
