Mexico/United States. 2018. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron. (135 mins.)
Rated R. [CC,AD] in Spanish with English subtitles

A cinematic and poetic masterpiece, Alfonso Cuaron's ROMA captures tiny, intricate moments in exceptional detail!

NOMINEE! Golden Globe Awards: Best Foreign Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay

OSCAR SHORTLIST! Best Foreign Language Film Nominations announced January 22, 2019

NOMINEE! Critics' Choice Awards: Best Picture, Best Actress (Yalitza Aparicio), Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, Best Editing, Best Foreign Language Film

WINNER! British Independent Film Awards: Best International Independent Film

NOMINEE! Film Independent Spirit Awards: Best International Film

"Roma is hypnotic and transporting and sublime, everything a movie seen on the big screen ought to be."
- Dana Stevens, Slate

An immersive, compassionate love letter to the Mexico City of his youth, Oscar winning director Alfonso Cuaron (CHILDREN OF MEN, Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN) crafts an epic semi-autobiographical story of everyday life in which time and space breathe and majestically unfold. He expertly mines the emotional terrain of a middle-class family whose center is quietly and unassumingly held together by its beloved live-in nanny and housekeeper, Cleo (Critics’ Choice Award nominee Yalitza Aparicio). Empathy, loyalty and love transcend differences in class and culture in ROMA, a visionary masterpiece that is vibrantly alive and profoundly moving.


UK/France/United States. 2018. Directed by Julian Schnabel. (110 mins.)
Rated R. [CC,AD]

AT ETERNITY'S GATE boasts memorable images and conversations along with a performance by Willem Dafoe as artful as the master he portrays!

NOMINEE! Golden Globe Awards: Best Actor in a Drama (Willem Dafoe)

NOMINEE! Critics' Choice Awards: Best Actor (Willem Dafoe)

"Abstract, meditative, dreamily surreal: much less a traditional biopic than an evocative series of scenes and images rooted in Willem Dafoe's fevered, close-to-the-bone performance." - Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

Director Julian Schnabel (THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY, BASQUIAT) takes a gloriously fresh look at the last days of Vincent van Gogh in his ravishingly tender and luminous new film. Even with all of the violence and tragedy associated with van Gogh, his was a life lived rich with magic and a profound communication with nature and the wonder of being. The pulsing heart of AT ETERNITY’S GATE, a transcendental journey inside the mind of the brilliant and tortured artist, is Willem Dafoe’s shattering award-nominated performance. It is a beautiful triumph!



UK. 2018. Directed by Roger Michell. (81 mins.) Not Rated. [CC]

A wickedly hilarious glimpse at the history of four remarkable actresses on and off the stage, TEA WITH THE DAMES is a lovely, intimate, fly-on-the-wall experience!

"A conversational feast with four acting Dames-Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Eileen Atkins and Joan Plowright-who are not above profane fun and confessions that make them human. Don't miss the chance to bask in the pleasure of their company." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

A unique celebration of the lives and careers of four of our most iconic actresses, this cantankerous, off-the-cuff doc invites us to spend a lovely afternoon of gossip and gab with legendary dames Eileen Atkins, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith. The four share their candid, delightfully irreverent, poignant and utterly engrossing thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight. Bursting with devilish wit and whip-smart insights, TEA WITH THE DAMES is a remarkable opportunity to spend time in the company of acting royalty — up close and unfiltered!



United States. 2018. Directed by Joel Edgerton. (114 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

Director Joel Edgerton and his extremely talented cast create a beautiful rainbow of emotion in BOY ERASED, a deeply touching true story based on Garrard Conley's 2016 memoir!

NOMINEE! Golden Globe Awards: Best Actor in a Drama (Lucas Hedges), Best Original Song (Revelation)

NOMINEE! Critics' Choice Awards: Best Supporting Actress (Nicole Kidman)

"Even centered on something born of such hatred, the film still places love and redemption at its core." - Brian Truitt, USA Today

This powerful, sensitive film, written and directed by actor Joel Edgerton, considers what it means to reconcile one's upbringing with one's own self-respect and moral truths. Jared (Lucas Hedges) belongs to a loving middle-class Arkansas family, plays for the basketball team and is in a steady relationship with a girl from school. But when a college friend outs Jared as gay, his Baptist minister father (Russell Crowe) and God-fearing mother (Nicole Kidman) send him to Refuge, a church-supported program predicated on the notion that homosexuality is a curable affliction. Rather than spurning religious conservatives, this young man’s uphill journey from rejection to self-acceptance in BOY ERASED contributes to a larger conversation that just might help heal us all.



United States. 2018. Directed by Marielle Heller. (107 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD]

With top-notch performances from Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant, CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? seamlessly intertwines the story of its unscrupulous protagonists and the nostalgia of a bygone literary era with a keenly sharp wit!

NOMINEE! Golden Globe Awards: Best Actress in a Drama (Melissa McCarthy), Best Supporting Actor (Richard E. Grant)

NOMINEE! Critics' Choice Awards: Best Actress (Melissa McCarthy), Best Supporting Actor (Richard E. Grant), Best Adapted Screenplay

NOMINEE! Screen Actors Guild Awards: Female Actor in a Leading Role (Melissa McCarthy), Male Actor in a Supporting Role (Richard E. Grant)

"...demands not our love for this supremely difficult person but rather our respect for her defiance of an unsympathetic world." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Brimming with intelligence, acerbic wit and an alluring sense of mischief, CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? is the true and deliciously deceptive tale of a jaded, out-of-work author who took up forgery to pay her bills. Don't miss Melissa McCarthy in this Oscar-worthy role! During the 80s, after decades spent composing respectful profiles of successful women, bestselling writer Lee Israel lights upon a fresh method of capitalizing on the public’s fascination with fame. Teaming up with an old acquaintance and ex-con (the ever-charming Richard E. Grant), Lee begins selling the forged correspondence of dead writers and actors on the black market. Following up her 2015 debut THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL, director Marielle Heller has created a charmingly playful comedic drama about the lengths one woman must go to survive.



United States. 2018. Directed by David Lowery. (93 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]

Pure, easy-going entertainment and a fitting farewell to charismatic legend Robert Redford, THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN is a triumphant slice of Americana!

NOMINEE! Golden Globe Awards: Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical (Robert Redford)

"A puckish film with a wistful quality, a gently comic end-of-the-line adventure about doing what you love, the passage of time and the things that might have been." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Infused with Hollywood’s elegiac, entertaining history of outlaw charm, this glorious true-life tale of career bank robber Forrest Tucker is an irresistible, exhilarating story of mischief. Known for escaping prison 18 times since his first incarceration at age fifteen, Tucker (Robert Redford in his final acting role) is now in his seventies and free. He can’t, however, seem to resist the lure of a good bank heist. With a sublime supporting cast that includes Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover and Tom Waits, director David Lowery (AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS, A GHOST STORY) breathes invigorating new life into THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN, a classic, glorious tale about a man living life by his own rules.
