Help us kick off our 2019 Opening Night on the red carpet with a fun throwback to the 90s! Bernadette is a nod to your favorite 90s high school rom-coms, so head to the movie theater with us (like you used to in the 90s!) and stay for the after party sponsored by CMX Cinemas Fallschase!

1994 was the perfect summer… for heartache. At 15, Archie has an impossible goal: to win the heart of Bernadette, a much older French foreign exchange student and local lifeguard, before she returns home at the end of the season. To gain her affection, Archie enlists the help of his first boss, Dixon, a local lothario, suburban legend, and the park district’s least valuable employee. Under Dixon’s tutelage, Archie and his friends learn about love, adulthood, and all the things that books can’t teach.

The Opening Night presentation is sponsored by CMX Cinemas Fallschase. A special food and cocktails menu will be served following the presentation. CMX – the VIP cinema experience!

Actor James Psathas (“Dixon”) is expected to be in attendance at the screening for a post-film discussion.
