The Hi-Pointe Backlot

1002 Hi-Pointe Place


Opened in 2015, the Hi-Pointe Backlot is on the second floor of the building directly behind the Hi-Pointe Theatre. The open space features natural light framed by the original brick walls of the building. Its cozy lobby serves as a gathering place with several small tables, a bar, ticketing space and concessions.

The theatre itself is perfect for cinephiles. The walls, and ceiling are black, devoid of the tacky colors and strange designs of the multiplexes. The seats feature convenient armrests and drink holders and are the latest in comfort.

At first glance one notices that this is welcome space for both the casual and serious movie lover. In addition to the latest in sight and sound, the forty-eight seat room is crowned with a comfy leather couch located at the front of the house and a movie screen measuring 19 feet wide by 8 feet tall.

Near-masterpiece ‘Wind River’ blends poetic dialogue, brutal violence

★★★★

Richard Roeper / Chicago Sun-Times

Writer-director Taylor Sheridan’s “Wind River” is a stark and beautiful and haunting 21st century Western thriller, filled with memorable visuals and poetic dialogue — and scenes of sudden, shocking, brutal violence. At times it reminded me of “No Country for Old Men” and “Winter’s Bone” and last year’s "Hell or High Water,” and (in the case of one character) it had me thinking about “The Silence of the Lambs” — but this near-masterpiece of mood and character study stands on its own as one of the very best movies I’ve seen this decade.

For all the character studies and moments of reflection and lament, “Wind River” never loses its identity as a gritty thriller. The bursts of gunfire are fast and furious and sometimes unexpected, adding to the power of such sequences. Sheridan now has three screenplays to his credit: “Sicario,” “Hell or High Water” and “Wind River.” That’s three home runs, three years in a row.
