View Screenings

Film Description:

The Cakemaker is a tender drama about loss and the secrets we keep from the ones we love the most. Thomas, a young German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli who frequently visits Berlin for business. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers regarding his death. Assuming a secret identity, Thomas infiltrates the life of Anat, his lover's newly widowed wife. He finds himself involved in Anat’s life in a way far beyond his anticipation, and to protect the truth he will stretch his lie to a point of no return. [2018, Germany and Israel, Runtime: 105 minutes, Rated: Not Rated].

Jeanette Catsoulis of The New York Times calls the film, “a master class in exquisite restraint”. “This provocative, unexpected and finally very moving work is as unusual a love story as you are likely to find,” writes Kenneth Turan of The Los Angeles Times.

The Children Act

View Screenings

Film Description:

The Children Act is a sophisticated and compelling drama about a judge’s struggle with the power of her duty.  Smart, elegant, and deeply moving, The Children Act  stars two-time Academy Award®-winner Emma Thompson in a riveting performance as Fiona Maye, a British High Court judge who, in the midst of a marital crisis, must rule on a life-changing legal case concerning the survival of a teenage boy. At issue is whether to order a blood transfusion on the boy, a Jehovah's Witness who, just months short of his eighteenth birthday, is refusing on religious grounds the procedure that would save his life. Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own novel, and directed by Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal, Iris), The Children Act  is a deeply affecting portrait of strength, devotion, and love, with the incomparable Emma Thompson giving one of the very best performances of her career. [2018, UK, Runtime: 105 minutes, Rated: R].

THE CHILDREN ACT is a welcome getaway from the now-fading summer’s loud fare, into something quiet and tasteful that aims for the aging soul,” writes Tomris Laffly of RogerEbert.com. Justin Chang of The Los Angeles Times writes that, “it’s always rewarding to watch Thompson bring her lucid wit and deep emotional reserves to bear on a meaty role.”

Pick of the Litter

View Screenings

Film Description:

 Pick of the Litter is a heartwarming and informative documentary that gives viewers a rare glimpse into the hard work and special character required to become a guide dog for the blind. 

 Pick of the Litter follows a litter of puppies through an intense two-year odyssey as they train to become dogs whose ultimate responsibility is to protect their blind partners from harm. It’s a rigorous process that will take the pups from the care of selfless foster volunteers to specialized trainers to, if they make the cut, a lifelong human companion. At every step of the way, the puppies will be tested, challenged, and evaluated. Only the best of the best will be chosen for the job of guide dog—who has what it takes? Introducing viewers to an unforgettable cast of canine personalities and the dedicated individuals who work with them, Pick of the Litter is an uplifting, bighearted celebration of the unique bond between humans and dogs. [2018, US, Runtime: 81 minutes, Not Rated].

“A complete delight, a much-needed balm for the soul,” writes Kate Walsh of The Los Angeles Times. Moira Macdonald of The Seattle Times says the film, “reveals something deeply moving, between the cute-puppy moments: the bond between dogs and their humans, and the everyday miracle the trained dogs bring.”

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

Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood

View Screenings

Film Description:

Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood is  a wild—and often poignant—documentary that takes the viewer through the secret lives of some of classic Hollywood’s biggest stars, as told by the man who catered to their desires. 

Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood is the deliciously scandalous story of Scotty Bowers, a handsome ex-Marine who landed in Hollywood after World War II and became confidante, aide-de-camp and lover to many of Hollywood’s greatest male—and female—stars. In the 1940s and ‘50s, Scotty ran a gas station in the shadow of the studio lots where he would connect his friends with actors and actresses who had to hide their true sexual identities for fear of police raids at gay bars, societal shunning and career suicide. An unsung Hollywood legend, Bowers would cater to the sexual appetites of celebrities—straight and gay–for decades. This cinéma-vérité documentary by director Matt Tyrnauer (Valentino: The Last Emporer) tells his story, as well as presents eye-opening takes on icons from the Hollywood Golden Age including Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Lana Turner, Ava Gardner and many more. [2018, US, Runtime: 97 minutes, Not Rated].

Scotty captures a fascinating era of Hollywood — the public-relations version and the real one, with its morality clauses and scandal sheets — while also examining a key behind-the-scenes figure,” writes Alonso Duralde of TheWrap.com.  

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

What happens when four legends of British stage and screen get together? Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright are among the most celebrated actresses of our time, with scores of iconic performances, decades of wisdom, and innumerable Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, and BAFTAs between them. They are also longtime friends who hereby invite you to join them for a weekend in the country as they catch up with one another, reminisce, and share their candid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight. Bursting with devilish wit and whip-smart insights, Tea with the Dames is a remarkable opportunity to spend time in the company of four all-time greats—up close and unfiltered. [2018, UK, Runtime: 94 minutes, Not Rated].

“The assembled dames are so smart, witty and strong-willed, it’s a wrench to have to part company from them at the end of the film,” writes Leslie Felperin of TheHollywoodReporter.com. Dave White of TheWrap.com writes that the film, “is as cozy and satisfying as its title suggests.”

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