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.

'Lady Bird' is one of the year's best films

• Four stars out of four •

“Lady Bird” is the solo directorial debut of Greta Gerwig, who is best known as a performer. Working from her own screenplay, Gerwig delivers a comedy-drama that transcends genre categories. It’s simply one of the best films of the year — an experience at once joyful, heartbreaking and hilarious.

And Lady Bird might finally be the role that earns Ronan (“Brooklyn”) an Oscar. As a young woman at odds with the world, and herself, she illuminates the film. Also worthy of Academy attention is Metcalf, who is sheer perfection as the quintessential stressed-out mom.

Lots of movies are set to be popping up in multiplexes, but few as wonderful as “Lady Bird.”
