First Reformed

View Showtimes

Film Description:

Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence. From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver; American Gigolo; Affliction) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary. [2018, US, Runtime: 108 minutes, Rated: R].

“Utterly transporting,” writes Lindsey Bahr of The Associated Press, “the kind of film that will stay with you long after the credits.” Colin Covert calls the film, “a miracle.”

Starts Friday, June 29   (The full schedule of screenings will be posted Tuesday, June 26.)

RBG

View Showtimes

Film Description:

RBG is an inspiring documentary about the trail-blazing life of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of her rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG explores Ginsburg's life and career. [2018, US, Runtime: 96 minutes, Rated: PG].

"An unforgettable film. No matter your political leanings, RBG tells a heartwarming tale of determination, resilience, and in the spotlight is the most unlikely rockstar," writes Zachary Kaplan of Parade. Robert Sullivan of Vogue adds, “What's surprising to a casual follower of the judicial branch is that you'll be reaching not for your legal pad while watching the film, but the tissues, given that what actually underpins RBG is a love story.”

Itzhak

View Showtimes

Film Description:

Itzhak is a documentary about the inspiring life of violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman.  

From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to…Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life; “praying with the violin,” says renowned Tel Aviv violinmaker Amnon Weinstein. Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician, to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. As charming and entrancing as the famous violinist himself, Itzhak is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor, and above all, love. [2017, Israel and US, Runtime: 82 minutes, Not Rated].

“Good music and good company make Itzhak a pleasure,” writes Dennis Harvey of Variety. “Itzhak captures more than just notes on a scale. It reveals a vibrant spirit behind the music,” writes Pat Padua of The Washington Post

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

American Animals

View Showtimes

Film Description:

American Animals is a thrilling drama based on true events about one of the most unusual heists in American history. The film centers around two friends from the middle-class suburbs of Lexington, Kentucky. Determined to live lives that are out of the ordinary, they plan the brazen theft of some of the world’s most valuable books from the special collections room of their college library. Enlisting two more friends, and taking their cues from heist movies, the gang meticulously plots the theft and subsequent fence of the stolen artworks. Although some of the group begin to have second thoughts, they discover that the plan has seemingly taken on a life of its own. Unfolding from multiple perspectives, and innovatively incorporating the real-life figures at the heart of the story, writer-director Bart Layton (The Imposter) takes the heist movie into bold new territory. [2018, US, Runtime: 116 minutes, Rated: R].

Kenneth Turan of The Los Angeles Times calls American Animals, “one of the summer's freshest, most entertaining films”. Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter praises first time drama director Bart Layton: “this has to rate among the most accomplished and fully realized big-screen debuts of recent times”.
