Screening at 7pm Thu Jan 14th to Sun Jan 17th, and special 4pm matinee on Sun Jan 17th
Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky's help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.

Writer-director Ryan Coogler confirms every bit of promise he displayed in his 2013 debut, Fruitvale Station, offering a smart, kinetic, exhilaratingly well-crafted piece of mainstream filmmaking. - Andrew Barker, Variety
It’s easy to forget what a phenomenon Rocky Balboa once was, and what a formidable actor and writer Sylvester Stallone proved to be. For those who remember, “Creed” will be a special treat. - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
Coming 39 years after the original film, Creed is a necessary reinvention, one that makes helpful tweaks to an old formula. - David Sims, The Atlantic
