Warner Theatre Presents Chiller Films' The Boy--Torrington


68 Main St., Torrington, CT 06790. Phone: 860-489-7180.

It's Not Just a Movie...It's a Movie at the Warner! This Saturday, August 15 at 7 pm, the Warner Theatre will show Chiller Films' THE BOY on our 50' screen. THE BOY is a chilling, intimate portrait of a 9-year-old sociopath's growing fascination with death. Tickets are just $5! It's the summer of 1989. 9-year-old Ted Henley (Jared Breeze) and his father John (David Morse) are the proprietors of The Mt. Vista Motel, a crumbling resort buried in the mountains of the American West. Since Ted's mother left, John has drifted into despondency—leaving Ted to fend for himself. In this isolation, unchecked by the bounds of parenting, Ted's darker impulses begin to manifest. The arrival of a mysterious drifter, William Colby (Rainn Wilson), captivates young Ted and the two form a unique friendship - setting the stage for Ted's final, unnerving metamorphosis.
