Birds of Passage

View Screenings

Film Description:

Birds of Passage is an epic exploration of the clash between tradition and the pursuit of wealth, embodied in one family’s confrontation with the outside world. 

From the Oscar®-nominated team behind the genre-defying “Embrace of the Serpent” comes an equally audacious saga centered on the Wayúu indigenous people during a crucial period in recent Colombian history. Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture's values, Rapayet (José Acosta) enters the drug trafficking business in the 1970s and finds quick success despite matriarch Ursula's (Carmiña Martínez) disapproval. Ignoring ancient omens, Rapayet and his family get caught up in a conflict where honor is the highest currency and debts are paid with blood.   [2019, Colombia, 125 minutes, in Wayúu and Spanish with English subtitles, Not Rated].

David Fear of Rolling Stone describes the film as, “Stunning, sumptuous…part anthropological study, part rise-and-fall epic and all-out mesmerizing.” Peter Debruge of Variety.com singles out the conflict at the center of the story, “Few films have captured quite so powerfully the tension between the old and new worlds — a feat Birds of Passage accomplishes while simultaneously allowing audiences to channel the Wayúu’s surrealistic view of their surroundings, where spirits walk the earth, and wise women interpret their dreams.”

Apollo 11

View Screenings

Film Description:

Apollo 11  is one of the greatest events in human history like you’ve never seen it before!

From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future. [2019, US, 93 minutes, Rated: G].

Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com puts the film in a category all by itself: “’Apollo 11’ isn't like other documentaries about the first moon mission. In fact, it isn't like most other movies, period. It's magnificent and unique, an adrenaline shot of wonder and skill.” “Entirely awe-inspiring,” adds Glenn Kenny of The New York Times.

Stan & Ollie

View Screenings

Film Description:

Stan and Ollie will take you back to the golden age of show business to tell the story of a great comedy duo at the end of their careers with  tender and hilarious drama. The spot-on performances of John C. Reilly as Oliver Hardy and Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel capture the pathos and comedic genius of these aging icons and make this film a can’t-miss.

With their time as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, Laurel and Hardy set out on a tour of Britain in 1953 facing an uncertain future. But, as the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other. [2019, US, 97 minutes, Rated: PG].

In his review for The Chicago Tribune, Michael Phillips ranks the film as “one of the best showbiz biopics of recent years, not because it ‘explains’ the what and why of Laurel & Hardy, but because it’s a touching, gently sentimental evocation of a tricky decades-long working friendship.” Lindsey Bahr of The Associated Press calls the film, “simply terrific — an understated but smartly told crowd-pleaser…with wonderful production value, a sharp and surprisingly poignant script and brilliant performances.”

Please note that tickets are non-refundable and may not be exchanged for other screening dates/times or film title.
