On Thursday February 14th at 6:00 pm and a special captioned matinee on Friday, February 15th at 1 pm, The Grand begins its weekly “Awards Season” series of recent Award-winning and nominated films sponsored by H&R Block of Ellsworth and Bucksport, presented on the giant Coastal Eye Care with one of this year’s Oscar nominees for Best Picture- “A Star Is Born.” In this new take on the tragic love story, Bradley Cooper (nominated for Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay) plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers- and falls in love with- struggling artist Ally (Lady Gaga, nominated for Best Actress and Best Song). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer… until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons. Sam Elliott won a nomination for Best Supporting Actor and co-stars with Dave Chapelle and Andrew Dice Clay. (2018. US 2 hrs, 15 min. Directed by Bradley Cooper. R.) Tickets for this General Admission presentation are $8 for Adults, $7 for Seniors/Students (15 and under) and $6 Grand Members (as well as Matinee screenings).
