Fantastic Fungi Trailer

Fantastic Fungi is a vivid journey into the mysterious subterranean world of myceliumand its fruit— the mushroom. A story that begins 3.5 billion years ago, fungi makes the soil that supports life, connecting vast systems of roots from plants and trees all over the planet, like an underground Internet.

Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we experience the power, beauty and complexity of the fungi kingdom.

The film is a blueprint for what connects all humanity and the natural world. There is much to learn from the mycelium network, and Fantastic Fungi is an inspiring place to begin the process of bringing us together as interconnected creators of our world.

OWNED presents an opportunity to learn about the history of American housing policy and how this affects our housing choices today.

Friday Night movie date anyone?

Teeming with rich history, the Fine Arts Theatre is the only operating theatre located in downtown Asheville. Originally opened in 1947 as a mainstream, first-run movie house, our beloved Fine Arts Theatre was later converted into a ### theatre in the 70s (scandalous)! This historic theatre reopened in 1996 in its current version as a first-run, art and independent film theatre.

Offering daily showings with matinees and evening viewings, plus late-night showings on Friday and Saturday, we are proud to partner with them as one of our Asheville Grown Alliance business members. The @fineartsasheville is also one of many locations to offer Go Local Cards for purchase.

JUDY | Official Trailer | Roadside Attractions

Opening Friday, 9/27 - JUDY starring Renée Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, and Finn Wittrock. Directed by Rupert Goold. Rated PG-13 (for substance abuse, thematic content, some strong language, and smoking). 118 min.

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”

Starting Friday, 9/27, through Thursday, 10/3, showing daily in our main level theatre at 1:00, 4:00, and 7:00 with a late show on Friday and Saturday nights at 9:30.

Miles Davis - Birth Of The Cool (Theatrical Trailer)

Opening Friday, 9/13 - MILES DAVIS: BIRTH OF THE COOL, featuring Miles Davis, Ron Carter, Jimmy Cobb. Directed by Stanley Nelson. 115 min. Not rated.

Miles Davis: Horn player, bandleader, innovator. Elegant, intellectual, vain. Callous, conflicted, controversial. Magnificent, mercurial. Genius. The very embodiment of cool. The man with a sound so beautiful it could break your heart.

The central theme of Miles Davis's life was his restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms. It made him a star—it also made him incredibly difficult to live with, for the people who loved him most. Again and again, in music and in life, Miles broke with convention—and when he thought his work came to represent a new convention, he changed it again. Miles's bold disregard for tradition, his clarity of vision, his relentless drive, and constant thirst for new experiences made him an inspiring collaborator to fellow musicians and a cultural icon to generations of listeners. It made him an innovator in music—from bebop to “cool jazz,” modern quintets, orchestral music, jazz fusion, rock ‘n’ roll, and even hip-hop.

Featuring never-before-seen archival footage, studio outtakes, and rare photos, Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool tells the story of a truly singular talent and unpacks the man behind the horn.

Starting Friday, 9/13, through Thursday, 9/19, showing daily in our main level theatre at 1:00, 4:00, and 7:00* with a Friday and Saturday late show at 9:15.

*No 7:00 show on Thursday, 9/19.
