United States/UK. 2019. Directed by Tom Harper. (101 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]

Inspired by an actual record-breaking balloon ride, THE AERONAUTS is an exhilarating, wondrous and triumphant tale!

"Something worth watching on the biggest possible screen..." - Tomris Laffly, Variety

"The Aeronauts achieves impressive elevation as a bracing and sympathetic account of two early and very different aviators who together reached literal new heights in a perilous field of endeavor." - Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

This dazzling, adventurous, high-flying tale reunites THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING co-stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones as a pioneering meteorologist and a daredevil balloon pilot. In 1862, the two teamed up to make history. While breaking records and furthering scientific discovery, their voyage to the very edge of existence helps the unlikely pair find their place in the world they have left far below them. With beautifully detailed performances, THE AERONAUTS is a legendary story about sharing a bold dream and needing to put your trust in others.


United States. 2019. Directed by Todd Haynes. (126 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]

When deciding where to watch Dark Waters, we sincerely hope you'll choose your favorite, locally-owned independent movie theater where you know that you and movies always matter!

From director Todd Haynes, DARK WATERS is a compelling, timely David-and-Goliath story of corporate greed vs. the little guy who fights the power!

"It's a perfect movie, and not the least of its power is due to Ruffalo's flawless performance." - Rex Reed, Observer

"Strong and involving." - Matt Zoller Seitz

Inspired by a shocking true story, DARK WATERS is the tale of a tenacious attorney (Mark Ruffalo) who risks his career and family, determined to uncover a secret that connects a growing number of unexplained deaths in one small community. In large part due to his work defending big chemical companies, the corporate environmental defense lawyer has just made partner at his prestigious Cincinnati firm. But when two West Virginia farmers contact him because they believe the local DuPont plant is dumping toxic waste in the area landfill, his moral compass is put to the test. From director Todd Haynes (FAR FROM HEAVEN, CAROL), this thriller is an intricate and evocative battle cry against corporate greed.



South Korean. 2019. Directed by Bong Joon-ho. (132 mins.) Rated R. in Korean with English subtitles

If you can, go in not knowing too many details! However, PARASITE, the best reviewed movie of the year, is a sarcastic, clever, brilliant and unabashedly frenzied thriller!

"Let's just say it: the South Korean auteur Bong Joon Ho is some kind of genius and he tops himself with 'Parasite' – it's explosive filmmaking on every level and one of the cinema high points of 2019. You won't know what hit you." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominee! Best International Film
Hollywood Critics Association Nominee! Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Male Director, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Editing

South Korean master filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s fiendishly clever Palme d’Or winner is an unpredictable comic suspense thriller for this age of class division and income inequality. The Kims, a poverty-stricken family of four, reside in a cramped basement apartment where they struggle to make ends meet. They craftily set their sights on manipulating their way into the good graces of the Park family, a wealthy but sometimes clueless clan of yuppies. But simmering class tensions are not so easily suppressed and an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait. Casting an elegant, pitiless gaze on the complacent rich and the resentful poor alike, PARASITE is a dark, funny and palpably urgent tale of economic disparity, social polarization and human desperation. Watch for multiple award nominations... Oscar's already got his eye on this one!



United States/Germany. 2019. Directed by Taika Waititi. (108 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]

One of the best films of the year, JOJO RABBIT nimbly zips through the full gamut of emotions, by turns uproarious, warm, heart-rending, horrifying, silly, surreal, scary and joyous!

"A sprightly, attractively composed coming-of-age comedy set in World War II Germany, "Jojo Rabbit" is an audacious high-wire act." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"A smart, accessible, inclusive film that opens doors at a time when many are slamming them shut. It's a celebration of the gift of life that's inviting you to dance with it. So dance with it." - Adam Graham, Detroit News

Hollywood Critics Association Nominee! Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Male Director, Best Performance by an Actor or Actress 23 & Under - Roman Griffiths Davis, Thomasin McKenzie

A dazzling takedown of fascist thinking and the violence it fuels, this riotous comedic satire from director Taika Waititi (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS) delivers surprising emotional impact. Jojo Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis) is a precocious, socially awkward kid in World War II Germany. A proud member of the Hitler Youth, Jojo passes much of his time with his imaginary friend Adolf (Waititi), a cuddly, energetic, pep-talking version of the Führer. Having completely given his blind allegiance to Nazi propaganda, Jojo is incensed when he discovers that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) has been working for the resistance, helping to keep safe the Jewish people he's been taught to hate. With Germany on the brink of collapse, the young boy is faced with the choice of clinging to his misguided beliefs or embracing his humanity. A wild and irreverent comedy infused with an abundance of heart and charm, JOJO RABBIT is a deeply funny and surprisingly touching depiction of our capacity for loathing and loving. This is a movie for the ages and is not to be missed!
