Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films: Best Horror Film nominee!
4/4 Stars! “an American classic…Sisters is De Palma’s masterpiece. It’s the culmination of all the themes he developed over his long career. ” (Combustible Celluloid)
4/4 Stars! “Sisters is Brian De Palma at his vicious, malicious best. An overt, unapologetic, and brilliantly sustained homage to Alfred Hitchcock…probably his greatest feat in generating suspense and a masterly raising of the bar that Hitchcock had so studiously maintained for so long” (Q Network)
“an expertly paced technically audacious thriller…a near-perfect fusion of craft and material…De Palma also knows how to deliver thrills, a skill he displays with remarkable regularity in Sisters, which still looks like one of his best.” (AV Club)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
