🔥 LAST CHANCE screenings this week: 4/1, 4/3, 4/5, 4/6, 4/8, 4/10! Shortlisted for a 2019 Best Foreign Film Oscar (the New Yorker calls it "by far the best of the lot"), this visually dazzling Colombian epic MUST be seen on the big screen! Directors Ciro Guerra and Cristina Gallego are also the team behind Oscar nominee (and one of our personal favorites that we've shown here) 'EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT.' Their new film is centered on the Wayúu indigenous people during a crucial period in recent Colombian history, the birth of the drug trade in the 1970s. Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture’s values, Rapayet meets young American Peace Corps volunteers who are trying in vain to buy weed, and he enters the trafficking business despite the tribe matriarch’s disapproval. Ignoring ancient omens, Rapayet and his family get caught up in a conflict where debts are paid with blood. A sprawling epic about the erosion of tradition in pursuit of material wealth, this is a visually striking exploration of loyalty, greed, and the voracious nature of change.

FINAL screening Wednesday at 7:30 pm, advance tickets selling out fast! A decade in the making, this new documentary explores th remarkable life and legacy of late feminist author Ursula K. Le Guin, who passed away in 2018. Best known for groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy works such as The Left Hand of Darkness, the Earthsea trilogy, and The Dispossessed, she changed the way we viewed those genres, dragging them from the shadows of pulp fiction to literary respectability. She also championed the idea that writers and what they do is far from a luxury, but a necessity for human survival. Featuring interviews with the usually camera-shy Le Guin, stunning animation, and reflections by authors including Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, Michael Chabon, and more.

Premieres 1/4! Officially on the 2019 Oscars shortlist, this exquisite tale of noir-style mystery and class warfare from South Korean director Lee Chang-dong (POETRY, SECRET SUNSHINE) is based on a story by Haruki Murakami and stars Steven Yeun (aka Glen from THE WALKING DEAD). "No film this year has so potently evoked the spirit of our slippery, maddening modern moment." - The Progressive

"The most absorbing movie I've seen this year, as well as the most layered and enigmatic." - Los Angeles Times

"One of the most trenchant modern portraits of the ways in which affluence can blacken the soul, and how struggling to attain it can often end in the exact same result." - Consequence of Sound

"A languorous, catlike psychological puzzle from one of the essential international masters." - Chicago Tribune

"Lee Chang-dong wins three performances that, in a fairer world, would all be up for big awards." - Vogue

TONIGHT ONLY, Monday 12/17 at 7:00 pm! 50th Anniversary of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” just $5! We'll be showing this extravagant musical based on "JAMES BOND" creator Ian Fleming's only children's novel, on the 50th anniversary of its original release date in 1968. Caractacus Potts (Dick Van Dyke) is an eccentric inventor who creates a magical car that can float and fly. The evil Baron Bombast (Gert Frobe) tries to steal the car and the inventor, but he grabs Potts' eccentric father (Lionel Jeffries) by mistake. Soon the family and a candy heiress named Truly Scrumptious are off to rescue grandpa, who still believes he is in the British Army fighting in India. They fly to a fantasy land where all children are jailed, and the adults must rescue the children. British comedy legend Benny Hill plays the role of the Toymaker. Eleven songs are presented by Robert and Richard Sherman, who provided the memorable music for another Van Dyke film, 'Mary Poppins.' Possibly one of the strangest children’s films of all time, and we’ll be showing a beautifully restored version in all its eye-popping set having, technicolor glory! All ages.

ONE NIGHT ONLY, Monday 12/17! We'll be showing the extravagant musical based on "JAMES BOND" creator Ian Fleming's only children's novel, "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," on the 50th anniversary of its original release date (December 17th, 1968). Caractacus Potts (Dick Van Dyke) is an eccentric inventor, widower and family man who invents a magical car that can float and fly in addition to the usual road travel. The evil Baron Bombast (Gert Frobe) tries to steal the car and the inventor, but he grabs Potts' eccentric father (Lionel Jeffries) by mistake. Soon the family and a candy heir named Truly Scrumptious are off to rescue grandpa, who still believes he is in the British Army fighting in India. They fly to a fantasy land where all children are jailed, and the adults must rescue the children to insure a safe family reunion. British comedy legend Benny Hill plays the role of the Toymaker. Eleven songs are presented by Robert and Richard Sherman, who provided the memorable music for another Van Dyke film, Mary Poppins. Just $5 per ticket!

TONIGHT ONLY! (Sunday, 12/9 at 6:00)! “A perfect cinematic experience...A meditation on modern rituals and ancient ones, conflicts between the native Aboriginal and invasive European cultures, human language and storytelling, female and male gender roles and the misunderstanding between them, the cruelty of nature and the madness of the modern world." - Paste

The second film for our "Roeg Gone Rogue" weekend, celebrating the life of the director who passed away this November, is the mesmerizing 1971 odyssey through the Australian Outback, “WALKABOUT.” A brother and sister from Sydney find themselves on their own when their scientist father, suffering a nervous breakdown, takes them deep into the wilderness to take his own life and theirs. After they get lost in the desert, a young indigenous man on walkabout finds and befriends them, and they follow him despite a language barrier, hoping to find their way back to urban life. Rated PG originally (like a modern PG-13). 110 minutes. Rarely screened. We’ll be showing the beautifully restored for Blu-ray version, for just $5. Show up early for cocktails and snacks and to be sure to get a seat!

12/08/2018

TONIGHT ONLY! Saturday, 12/8 at 6:00! We'd like to revive the forgotten December folk custom of telling ghost stories, and our first offering is from one of our favorite directors, Nicolas Roeg, who passed away this November. Named “#1 Best British Films of All Time" in Time Out's esteemed list curated by industry folks such as Wes Anderson, the groundbreaking psychological thriller “DON’T LOOK NOW” was adapted from a novella by Daphne Du Maurier. We'll be screening the beautifully restored version, for just $5 per ticket. A rare treat on the big screen, and you won't find this one on Netflix!

Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie portray recently bereaved parents on a trip to Venice, Italy in an attempt to get away from their grief. She finds comfort with a blind clairvoyant who gives her messages from beyond, while he works on restoring an old church and skeptically ignores the omens brought on by his own psychic powers. Rated R, 110 minutes.

"It's a ghost story; it's a meditation on time, memory and the poignancy of married love. And it's a masterpiece." - The Guardian
