Get Out

11:15pm - Friday, Feb 3, 2023

"A mind is a terrible thing to waste."

The Rio Theatre's weekly Friday Late Night Movie series returns in February (Black History Month)with a screening writer-director Jordan Peele's game changing, groundbreaking, and Oscar-winning work of socially satirical horror, GET OUT. The film's impact since its release in 2017 can't be missed - not only on Peele's own career (he has since gone on to truly establish himself with films including US and NOPE), but on the horror genre as a whole. In December 2022, the British Film Institute published the results of the 2002 Sight and Sound poll of the Greatest Films of All Time - and had GET OUT sitting comfortably at #95.

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. With Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford.

"A poster film for Black Lives Matter, Jordan Peele’s horror-satire of white vampirism gleefully needles America’s racial malaise." (BFI)

"Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, GET OUT seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride." (Rotten Tomatoes)

"Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He's made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you're laughing even as you're thinking, and vice-versa." (TIME Magazine)

"Jordan Peele’s GET OUT is the satirical horror movie we’ve been waiting for, a mash-up of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? and The Stepford Wives that’s more fun than either and more illuminating, too." (Vulture)
