Wes Anderson’s Terrific ISLE OF DOGS is Currently Playing at The Hi-Pointe in St. Louis
The Hi-Pointe Theater, at 1005 McCausland Ave in St. Louis, is the best place to see a Wes Anderson movie. Something about its city locale, its nostalgia factor, its retro interior, and the fact that they sell wine by the bottle make me think that Anderson would be happy to know that his newest, ISLE OF DOGS, is currently playing there. It’s been showing at Landmark’s Plaza Frontenac Theater (a fine venue) for the past week and I certainly don’t begrudge anyone who already saw it there. After all, I did claim ISLE OF DOGS “deserves a prominent spot in the run for this year’s best-animated feature Oscar.” in my 5-star WAMG review last week (read my complete review HERE), but The Hi-Pointe is the place to be and is where I’ve already seen it a second time and will likely indulge a third.
