Film at CAT - I Carry You With Me

View Screenings

“I Carry You With Me” is a compelling drama about a man who must leave his soulmate in another country.

Based on a dream-like love story, this decades spanning romance begins in Mexico between an aspiring chef (Armando Espitia) and a teacher (Christian Vázquez). Their lives restart in incredible ways as societal pressure propels them to embark on a treacherous journey to NYC with dreams, hopes, and memories in tow. [2020, Mexico, 111 min, Rated: R, Spanish with English subtitles].

Kiko Martinez of the “San Antonio Current” writes, “First-time feature director Heidi Ewing blends a beautiful narrative with real-life subjects to capture a story that is alluring an emotionally rich." Robert W. Butler of the “Butler’s Cinema Scene” says, “A genre-bending hybrid that nails both the triumph of these two enterprising individuals and the acute sense of loss they experience as men without a country.”

Film at CAT - Val

View Screenings

“Val” is a wildly original documentary that tells the story of a famous actor through four decades of home videos.

For over 40 years Val Kilmer (also the film’s producer), one of Hollywood’s most mercurial and/or misunderstood actors, has been documenting his own life and craft through film and video. He has amassed thousands of hours of footage, from 16mm home movies made with his brothers, to time spent in iconic roles for blockbuster movies like ‘Top Gun,’ ‘The Doors,’ ‘Tombstone,’ and ‘Batman Forever.’ This raw and unflinching film reveals a life lived to extremes and a heart-filled, sometimes hilarious look at what it means to be an artist and a complex man.” [2020, US, 109 min, Rated: R].

Jason Gorber of “RogerEbert.com” remarks, “An intimate, moving, and genuinely fabulous examination of the life and career of a Hollywood star." Tim Grierson of “Screen International” comments, “There's a fragility to Val - and not just in Kilmer's physical presence - that's unexpectedly moving.”

Film at CAT - Summer of Soul

View Screenings

“Summer of Soul,” is an acclaimed documentary that examines the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival.

In his celebrated debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents a powerful and transporting film - part music, part historical record - created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Despite the top-level talent that performed at the festival, the concert went largely unremembered and, according to the opening title of the film, the footage “Sat in a basement for 50 years. It has never been seen.” Thompson and his team of producers unearthed more than 45 hours of footage to bring the film to life. The feature includes never-before-seen concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more. “Summer of Soul” is a 2021 Sundance Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize Winner. [2020, US, 117 min, Rated: PG-13].

Owen Gleiberman of “Variety” writes “It’s a music documentary like no other, because while it’s a joyful, cataclysmic, and soulfully seductive concert movie, what it’s really about is a key turning point in Black life in America.” Dwight Brown of “National Newspaper Publishers Association” says, “Questlove and his rousing, thoughtful documentary links us back to the past with this precious and rare archive.”

The 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival had a lot in common with that summer’s other big music event, Woodstock: It drew tens of thousands of music fans…it featured an all-star lineup including Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and Sly and the Family Stone…and it was captured on hours of film. But unlike Woodstock, which inspired an Oscar-winning documentary, the footage of the Harlem Cultural Festival languished in a basement for 50 years — until musician/dj Questlove rescued the footage, restored it, and crafted it into this breathtaking account of the six-week event. He stops the music only to examine why we’ve never heard of this landmark event before.

Film at CAT - Queen Bees

View Screenings

“Queen Bees,” is a delightful romantic-comedy about the young at heart.

While her house undergoes repairs, fiercely independent senior Helen (played by Ellen Burstyn) temporarily moves into the nearby Pine Grove Community Center. There she encounters lusty widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments and a hotbed of bullying "mean girls” (played by Ann-Margaret, Jane Curtain and Loretta Divine) the likes of which she hasn’t encountered since high school. It leaves her yearning for the solitude of home. But somewhere between flower arranging and water aerobics Helen discovers that it’s never too late to make new friends and perhaps even find a new love. The all-star cast also includes James Caan and Christopher Lloyd.  [2020, US, 101 min, Rated: PG-13].

Thelma Adas of “AARP Movies for Grownups” says, “An ideal date night or friends' group evening out. Love is love and there's no expiration date. Or, as Curtin's bossy biddy says, tongue planted firmly in cheek, "Eighty is the new 18." Rosalie Kicks of “MovieJawn” writes, “the film manages to touch on some heavy subjects like the inability to continue your independence while at the same time delivers some amusing moments that leave you smiling.”

Film at CAT - 12 Mighty Orphans

View Screenings

This true story, adapted from Jim Dent’s bestselling book by the same name, tells the amazing story of a determined young sports team.

The Mighty Mites is the football team from a Fort Worth orphanage who, during the Great Depression, went from playing without shoes—or even a football—to playing for the Texas State championships. Over the course of their winning season these underdogs and their resilient spirit became an inspiration to their city, state, and an entire nation in need of a rebound, even catching the attention of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The architect of their success was Rusty Russell (played by Luke Wilson), a legendary high school coach who shocked his colleagues by giving up a privileged position so he could teach and coach at an orphanage. Few knew Rusty's secret: that he himself was an orphan. Recognizing that his scrawny players couldn't beat the other teams with brawn, Rusty developed innovative strategies that would come to define modern football. Also among the all-star cast is Martin Sheen, Treat Williams and Robert Duvall. [2020, US, 118 min, Rated: PG-13].

Joe Friar of “The Victoria Advocate” pens “You'll stand up and cheer as the inspirational film directed by Ty Roberts captures your heart with a story as big as Texas.” Peter Martin of “ScreenAnarchy” says, “Revives a long-lost story of a team of undermanned young people coached by outstanding adults...all told in a wholesome, up building manner.”
