Film Schedule      


Go For Sisters

January 10-12

Friday 6 and 8:15 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday 11:45 am, 2 pm, and 4:15 pm


"Sayles gives us vibrant, complex characters inhabited by actors who burrow deep-a reminder of how scarce classical, involving human drama is at the movies nowadays." Scott Foundas, The Village Voice. As much a story of relationships as a story of crime, Go For Sisters is a welcome return to the border for master filmmaker and two-time Academy Award nominee John Sayles (Lone Star, Passion Fish).


123 minutes; Unrated



Bettie Page Reveals All

January 17-19

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm


The world's greatest pinup model and cult icon, Bettie Page, recounts the true story of how her free expression overcame government witch hunts to help launch America's sexual revolution.


101 minutes; R



The Invisible Woman

January 24-26

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm


"A revelatory performance by Felicity Jones is the chief but hardly only virtue of Ralph Fiennes' impressively crafted Dickens tale." Scott Foundas, Variety. Ralph Fiennes directs and stars as novelist Charles Dickens, who at the height of his career takes a young actress (Felicity Jones) as his secret lover.


111 minutes; R



Mother of George

January 31-February 2

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm


"Simply relating the narrative of Andrew Dosunmu's seductive immigrant drama Mother of George would do little to convey the film's stark, poetic power, much less its extraordinary visual and sonic acumen." Guy Lodge, Variety. A Nigerian couple living in Brooklyn have trouble conceiving a child-a problem that defies cultural expectations and leads to a shocking decision that could either save or destroy a family.


107 minutes; R



You Will Be My Son

February 7-9

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm


"A strongly acted, character-driven melodrama, concerned with the dynamics of family in general and father-son issues in particular, [You Will Be My Son] presents situations so emotionally supercharged that the whole story could have come straight out of Balzac." Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.


102 minutes; R; French with English subtitles



The Past

February 14-16

Friday 6 and 8:30 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday 11:30 am, 2 pm, and 4:30 pm


"The Past plays like a low-key adagio in the hands of a masterful pianist, who knows how to give every note its just nuance." Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter. An Iranian man deserts his French wife and two children to return to his homeland. Meanwhile, his wife starts up a new relationship, a reality her husband confronts upon his wife's request for a divorce.


130 minutes; PG-13
