‘Hearts Beat Loud’ opens at Cinema Art Theater July 13

July 11, 2018

Starting Friday,  July 13, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society's Cinema Art Theater will present “Hearts Beat Loud,” a lovely comedy about a father clinging to the past while his teenaged daughter yearns to grow up.

In the hip Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, single dad and record store owner Frank (Nick Offerman) is preparing to send his hard-working daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to college, while being forced to close his vintage shop. Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly "jam sesh" into a father-daughter live act. After their first song becomes an Internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery. 

Screening times are 4 p.m., Friday, July 13; 7 p.m., Saturday, July 14; 4 p.m., Sunday, July 15; 1 p.m., Monday, July 16; 7 p.m., Tuesday, July 17; 4 p.m., Wednesday, July 18; and 7 p.m., Thursday, July 19.
