FREE SOLO – climbing the 3000′ El Capitan without a rope
Feb 17 @ 2:00 pm

RESCHEDULED TO SUNDAY FEBRUARY 17 at 2:00pm due to storm

From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi (“MERU”) and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes National Geographic Documentary Film’s FREE SOLO, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock … the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park … without a rope.

Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement. FREE SOLO is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.

ROMA
Feb 19 @ 7:30 pm
10 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE AND BEST DIRECTOR
In his deeply personal black-and-white marvel Roma, Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men) observes the smallest parts first, before expanding to gradually reveal the social and political canvas of 1970s Mexico City. An autobiographical elegy about his childhood and the women who raised him, Roma coalesces around episodic recollections, filmed with visual conviction.

The domestic helper at the heart of the story is the gentle-natured Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), who works for the affectionate but occasionally livid Sofia (Marina de Tavira) and the rest of her family. Cuarón honours Cleo’s unsung rituals: cleaning, looking after Sofia’s four children whom she loves like her own, interacting with her best friend and co-worker Adela, going on movie dates with her self-absorbed boyfriend, and so on.

At first, the lives of Cleo and Sofia run on parallel yet detached lines, save for regular household interactions and cozy evenings spent in front of the tv, where Cleo is treated as part of the family. But when a marital separation and an unwanted pregnancy upset the lives of the two women, their fates cross paths in a real sense for the first time. And, as the world around their new found female solidarity slowly crumbles, Roma’s physical and emotional scope grows and deepens.
  • Directed by Alfonso Cuarón
  • Starring Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira
  • Mexico / USA · Spanish and Mixtecan w/ subtitles
  • Rated NR · 2h 15m

    “There’s no other way to say it than to say it: “Roma” is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, and one of the most moving.”A richly textured masterpiece, Roma is cinema at its purest and most human.”
    –The Wall Street Journal


    “At times it feels novelistic, a densely realised, intimate drama giving us access to domestic lives developing in what feels like real time. In its engagingly episodic way, it is also at times like a soap opera or telenovela. And at other times it feels resoundingly like an epic.”

    – The Guardian

 

 

 

Tickets: $11 Adult, $10 with Film Buff Card, $8 Youth.

THE FAVOURITE
Feb 22 @ 7:00 pm

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

STAN & OLLIE
Feb 26 @ 7:30 pm

The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan and Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.

  • Directed by Jon S. Baird
  • Starring John C. Reilly, Steve Coogan, Shirley Henderson, and Nina Arianda
  • UK / Canada / USA · English
  • Rated G · 1h 37m

As a winsome glance back, and as a piece of artistic preservation, Stan & Ollie would be enjoyable enough. But it becomes truly transcendent in the hands of John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan.”
