Before Midnight

June 14-16

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

"Honoring all that was memorable about its forebears [Before Sunrise and Before Sunset] while taking the story to new depths of catharsis, Before Midnight stands as a unique and uniquely satisfying entry in what has shaped up to be an outstanding screen trilogy." Justin Chang, Variety. We meet Jesse and Celine (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy) nine years on in Greece. Almost two decades have passed since their first meeting on that train bound for Vienna.

Fill the Void

July 5-7

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

"Not just a charming and accomplished first film, Fill the Void qualifies as one of [the Venice Film Festival's] most exotic competition entries, throwing open a window on the world of an Orthodox Hassidic family in Tel Aviv." Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter. A devout 18-year-old Israeli is pressured to marry the husband of her late sister. Declaring her independence is not an option in Tel Aviv's ultra-Orthodox Hassidic community.

Stories We Tell

"The film is a mystery uncovered like a detective story, wrapped in a love letter."Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News.

108 minutes; PG-13



The Painting

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