High Life | Official Trailer HD | A24

Opening Friday, 4/19 - HIGH LIFE, starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, and André Benjamin. Directed by Claire Denis. Rated R (disturbing sexual and violent content including sexual assault, graphic nudity, and for language). 110 min.

Monte (Robert Pattinson) and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to deep space. The crew—death-row inmates led by a doctor (Juliette Binoche) with sinister motives—has vanished. As the mystery of what happened onboard the ship is unraveled, father and daughter must rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole. A staggering and primal film about love and intimacy, suffused with anguished memories of a lost Earth, HIGH LIFE is a haunting, thrilling achievement from visionary director Claire Denis.

The Public from The Public (2018)

Opening Friday, 4/12 - THE PUBLIC, starring Alec Baldwin, Emilio Estevez, Jena Malone, Taylor Schilling, Christian Slater, Garbrielle Union, Jeffrey Wright, Michael K. Williams, Che “Rhymefest” Smith, Jacob Vargas. Directed by Emilio Estevez. Rated PG-13 (for thematic material, nudity, language, and some suggestive content). 119 minutes.

In THE PUBLIC an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library where the action of the film takes place. The story revolves around the library patrons, many of whom are homeless, mentally ill and marginalized, as well as an exhausted and overwhelmed staff of librarians who often build emotional connections and a sense of obligation to care for those regular patrons. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, the Patrons turn the building into a homeless shelter for the night by staging an "Occupy" sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand off with police and a rush-to-judgment media constantly speculating about what's really happening. This David versus Goliath story tackles some of our nation's most challenging issues, homelessness and mental illness and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.

Starting Friday, 4/12, showing daily in our main level theatre at 1:00*, 4:00, and 7:00 pm with a late show on Friday and Saturday nights at 9:30 pm.

*On Friday, 4/12, THE PUBLIC plays upstairs at 1:00 pm.
