Tybee Post Theater reopens for hot new movies in March

Your Tybee Post Theater is turning on the lights the first weekend in March to bring you the hottest films coming out of Hollywood just as the awards season kicks into high gear!
We scanned the titles that seem to be leading the pack, and picked a blockbuster lineup for the Post’s return to the movies! We’re opening with Tom Hank’s epic “News of the World,” March 5-7, and moving through the month with dramas such as “Nomadland,” The Trial of the Chicago 7,” “The Father,” and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” And we may add some surprises before the month is over.
We are limiting seating to 35 percent of capacity, so you will want to get your tickets online early. Showings will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with a new film each weekend for the first three weeks. Then, in our fourth week, we’ve got two movies running from Wednesday through Sunday! None of these fine films will be sticking around long, so make your plans and mark your calendars.
As you know by now, the Post has gone above and beyond the CDC’s recommendations for new sanitation and safety protocols. In addition to installing a brand new high tech air filtration system that kills viruses, bacteria and allergens, we’ve installed multiple hand sanitizing stations and are disinfecting the Theater after every screening!
We are limiting occupancy to only about 70 seats, so you’ll have plenty of room to space out from one another. And we are requiring face masks, except when eating or drinking. We want you to feel comfortable knowing we have done all we can to provide a safe environment for your entertainment.
Now enjoy the show!

Universal praise for “First Man” @ TybeePost Jan. 3-5

On Jan. 3, the Tybee Post Theater begins a three-day run of Oscar-winning Best Director (for 2016′s retro-nouveau romantic musical “La La Land”) Damien Chazelle’s latest motion picture — and his second to star Ryan Gosling — “First Man,” a biopic of astronaut Neil Armstrong that focuses on his early days as a test pilot and the preparations for his historic 1969 Apollo 11 moon mission. The film has won near-universal praise for its execution and for the performances of both Gosling (as Armstrong) and Claire Foy (as the astronaut’s first wife Janet).

Variety Magazine said of the lengthy (141-minute) film that it was “so revelatory in its realism, so gritty in its physicality, that it becomes a drama of thrillingly hellbent danger and obsession.” By all accounts, it’s a picture whose scope and subject matter demand that it be seen in a true theatrical environment, which makes the cozy, 200-seat Tybee Post a wonderful spot to catch the picture. The film, which was released in October, has grossed over $100 million to date at the box office. 7 p.m. showtimes Jan. 3-5, with a 3 p.m. matinee Jan. 5.
