The Cinema Center, partnering with the New York Film Critics, has been able to show a movie each month before it hits theatres. This special experience gives Fort Wayne movie-goers the chance to see certain films before places like New York and Los Angeles.

This month, the Cinema Center is bringing “Locke” to Fort Wayne. The movie takes place during a car ride as main character Ivan Locke’s life slowly unravels with a series of phone calls, displaying how decisions can affect every aspect of one’s life.

“’Locke’ stars Tom Hardy—he played Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises”— one of the best actors of his generation. The film is directed by Steven Knight, a filmmaker who is able to bring reality and humanity to the dark subject matter of his films. When you bring Tom Hardy and Steven Knight together, you have a recipe for a great little dramatic thriller,” said Jonah Crismore, the director of the Cinema Center.

According to a review by Leslie Felperin from Variety, the movie was, “An exceptional one-man show for Tom Hardy, this ingeniously executed study in cinematic minimalism has depth, beauty and poise.”

As an added feature after the screening, a question and answer session with the actors and filmmakers will be streamed live from New York.

The sneak peak showing will take place on April 29 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be $15 for general admission and $10 for Cinema Center Members.
