CAB and WFS team for Valentine's double feature

Feb. 8, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Valentine's weekend at WMU will include a double feature of romantic comedy movies at the Little Theatre compliments of the Western Film Society and Campus Activities Board.

CAB presents the light romantic comedy "Serendipity," starring John Cusack, on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 14-15. WFS presents its viewer's choice selection, "Novocaine," a dark comedy starring Steve Martin, Friday through Sunday, Feb. 15-17.

Both movies will be shown as a Valentine's double feature on Friday, Feb. 15, begining at 7 p.m. with "Novocaine" followed by "Serendipity." Double feature tickets are $8 general admission and $5 for students.

CAB will present a single feature screening of "Serendipity" at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14.

WFS will present single screenings of "Novocaine," Saturday, Feb. 16, at 7 and 9:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 17, at 2:30 and 5 p.m.

All single feature screenings of both movies are $5 general admission, $3 for students.

"Novocaine" stars Martin as a dentist lured into a twisted underworld of drugs and murder by an alluring patient (Helena Bonham Carter). The film also stars Laura Dern and has been praised by the New York Post: "Martin breaks loose from a string of bland studio comedies with 'Novocaine,' a snarkly amusing indie."

In "Serendipity," Cusack stars with Kate Beckinsale as a couple that reunites years after the night they first met, fell in love, and separated, convinced that one day they'd end up together.

WIDR 89.1 FM, WMU's student radio station will broadcast live from the Sunday "Novocaine" screenings as part of WIDR's annual pledge drive.

The Little Theatre is on the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver St. on WMU's East Campus. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre.
