"Densely rich drama, told with stringent austerity but also humor and judicious empathy . . . an altogether strange but astonishing work of craftsmanship." Leslie Felperin,

The Hollywood Reporter. An Israeli woman seeking to finalize a divorce (gett) from her estranged husband finds herself effectively put on trial by her country's religious marriage laws in this powerhouse courtroom drama from sibling directors Shlomi and Ronit Elkabetz.

Wild Tales

March 20-22

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


"A wickedly delightful compendium of six standalone shorts united by a theme of vengeance -- the kind that explodes in spectacular bursts after a put-upon soul is screwed over too many times." Jay Weissberg, Variety.Inequality, injustice, and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people.

122 minutes; R; Spanish with English subtitles




March 27-29

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


"[Abderrahmane Sissako] has made a film of unforgettable anger, yet tempered his outrage with humor, compassion and visual poetry." Mark Jenkins, NPR.Not far from the ancient Malian city of Timbuktu, now ruled by the religious fundamentalists, a proud cattle herder lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife, his daughter, and their twelve-year-old shepherd. Their destiny changes abruptly in this stunningly rendered film from a master of world cinema. Timbuktu is a 2015 Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.

97 minutes; PG-13; French/Arabic with English subtitles


Merchants of Doubt

April 3-5

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


Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of American spin. Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities -- yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to global warming.

95 minutes; PG-13



The Wrecking Crew

April 10-12

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


"A treasure trove of witness-at-creation anecdotes and enduringly potent '60s pop classics, The Wrecking Crew is a well-nigh irresistible treat for aficionados of music from the era when acts like the Beach Boys, the Association and the Monkees were topping the charts." Joe Leydon, Variety. Denny Tedesco's documentary is a celebration of the musical work of a group of session musicians known as "The Wrecking Crew," a band that provided back-up instrumentals to such legendary recording artists as Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, and Bing Crosby.
