Coming Tuesday: ‘Memento’-like thriller ‘Shuffle’ latest offering from Cinema Society


The Asheville Cinema Society will screen Shuffle on Tuesday, Aug. 28.  The film begins at 7:15 PM at the Regal Biltmore Grande 15 in Biltmore Park.  Advance tickets are available online and remaining seats will be sold inside the theater lobby beginning at 6:45.

From the press release:

Shuffle is the tale of Lovell Milo who begins experiencing his life out of order.  Every day he wakes up at a different age, on a different day of his life, never knowing where or when he’s going to be once he falls asleep.  Completely terrified of what is happening, Lovell tries to make it stop until he notices a pattern in his experience.  Is there a purpose to this time-jumping?  If so, who or what is behind it?

Winner at eight film festivals, Shuffle is a mix of Memento and It’s a Wonderful Life with a touch of The Twilight Zone.  Not only has the film won Best Picture and Best Director awards, but the cast has also been noted as an excellent ensemble of actors.  Lead actors TJ Thyne and Paula Rhodes are particularly strong driving the film to its climactic ending that is one of those great “Aha!” moments missing in so many films today.

The 82 minute film is rated PG-13 for thematic elements, language, and brief sexuality.
