See Annihilation or Thoroughbreds at Hi-Pointe Theatre This Weekend
Hi-Pointe Theatre is a hidden gem of St. Louis. The Hi-Pointe Backlot is even more so, hidden behind the main theater on McCausland Avenue. Hi-Pointe has been around since 1922 at the Southwest corner of Forest Park and below the world’s largest Amoco sign.
Hi-Pointe Backlot came on the scene in 2015 on the second floor of a building right behind the main theater. It took three years of rehab before the owners of Hi-Pointe spent 60 straight days putting the final touches on the space. The 48-seat theater has drawn stellar reviews from movie fans.
See Thoroughbreds this weekend at Hi-Pointe Backlot, while Annihilation plays at Hi-Pointe Theatre.
See The Greatest Showman This Weekend At Keller 8
The Greatest Showman, Red Sparrow and Annihillation all make their way to Keller 8 theater in South County this weekend.
I saw Hugh Jackman in Greatest Showman during one of the first weeks it was in movie theaters. I thought it would be so-so.
I was dead wrong. I absolutely loved it. Just a really enjoyable movie to watch. If you haven’t seen it yet in the theater, go see it at Keller 8. Even if you have seen it, you may want to take this opportunity to see it in the theater while you can.

Bruce Willis and Cole Hauser star in Acts of Violence. Ed Helms and Amanda Seyfried star in The Clapper and Daniel Radcliffe can be seen in Beast of Burden.
