Spider-Mondays at Gateway Film Center

As part of Columbia Pictures 100th Anniversary, we are bringing all of the live action Spider-Man movies back to the Film Center on Mondays April 15 to June 3, 2024.

About the film:

The second installment in Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, Spider-Man 2 (2004) won Best Visual Effects at the 77th Academy Awards and was heralded as one of the greatest superhero films ever made.

“It’s a superhero movie for people who don’t go to superhero movies, and for those who do, it’s the one they’ve been yearning for.”

—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Tobey Maguire returns as the mild-mannered Peter Parker, who is juggling the delicate balance of his dual life as college student and a superhuman crime fighter. Peter’s life becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the brilliant Otto Octavius who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled “Doc Ock.” When Doc Ock kidnaps MJ, Spider-Man must swing back into action as the adventure reaches new heights of unprecedented excitement.

About the filmmaker:

Sam Raimi is a highly inventive American filmmaker who developed his dynamic visual style crafting short stories and the savage, darkly humorous horror features The Evil Dead (1981), Evil Dead II (1987), and Army of Darkness (1992). He helmed a wide variety of films, including his original superhero story Darkman (1990), western The Quick and the Dead (1995), crime thriller A Simple Plan (1998), baseball film For Love of the Game (1999), and fantasy The Gift (2000) before being handed the reins of Stan Lee’s web-slinging comic book superhero for Spider-Man (2002) and its sequels. With his latest feature, he brought a bit of horror to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022).
