On Thursday November 1st at 6:00 pm and a special captioned matinee on Friday, November 2nd at 1 pm, The Grand continues its weekly CineGrand series of recent well-reviewed films presented on the giant Coastal Eye Care with a beautiful adaptation of one of Anton Chekov’s classic plays- “The Seagull.” One summer at a lakeside Russian estate, friends and family gather for a weekend in the countryside. While everyone is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly, and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life. Adapted by Tony-winning playwright Stephen Karam (“The Humans”) from Chekhov’s best-known works and directed by Tony-winner Michael Mayer (“Spring Awakening”), the film explores, with comedy and melancholy, the obsessive nature of love, the tangled relationships between parents and children, and the transcendent value and psychic toll of art. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Annette Benning, Elizabeth Moss, Corey Stoll and Mare Winningham. (2018. US 1 hr, 38 min. Directed by Michael Mayer. R.) Tickets for this General Admission presentation are $8 for Adults, $7 for Seniors/Students (15 and under) and $6 Grand Members (as well as Matinee screenings).
