Love Is Strange Poster

 

Love is Strange - Opens October 10th

 

After nearly four decades together, Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) finally tie the knot in an idyllic wedding ceremony in lower Manhattan. But when George loses his job soon after, the couple must sell their apartment and - victims of the relentless New York City real estate market - temporarily live apart until they can find an affordable new home. While George moves in with two cops (Cheyenne Jackson and Manny Perez) who live down stairs, Ben lands in Brooklyn with his nephew(Darren Burrows), his wife (Marisa Tomei), and their temperamental teenage son (Charlie Tahan), with whom Ben shares a bedroom. While struggling with the pain of separation, Ben and George are further challenged by the intergenerational tensions and capricious family dynamics of their new living arrangements. 

 

"3.5/4 Stars.  Many, I suspect, will be moved to tears by 'Love Is Strange,' which Sachs earns the hard way: not by amping up the dramatic situations, but by grace notes and quiet spells cast by all the right actors." - Chicago Tribune.

 

"3.5/4 Stars.  Love may be weird, complicated and uncertain, but it is also wondrous. 'Love Is Strange' makes that case with a remarkable blend of tenderness, wit and intelligence." - USA Today.

 

"3.5/4 Stars.  Acting doesn't get better than this. Want to know what love is? Watch Lithgow and Molina and learn." - Peter Traverse, Rolling Stone.

Last Days in Vietnam Poster

 

Last Days in Vietnam - Opens October 17th

 

During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese Army closed in on Saigon as the panicked South Vietnamese people desperately attempted to escape. On the ground, American soldiers and diplomats confronted a moral quandary: whether to obey White House orders to evacuate only U.S. citizens or risk being charged with treason and save the lives of as many South Vietnamese citizens as they could. With time running out and the city under fire, an unlikely group of heroes emerged as Americans and South Vietnamese took matters into their own hands.

 

"4/4 Sars.  'The Last Days in Vietnam,' at its core, is about moral courage - the bravery to confront the question of 'who goes and who gets left behind,' as retired Army colonel Stuart Herrington puts it." - Washington Post.

 

"Sometimes the stories we think we know, the stories where we don't want to hear another word, turn out to be the most involving of all, the ones we in fact know the least about. So it is with 'Last Days in Vietnam.'" - Los Angeles Times.

 

4/4 Stars.  The grit of men and women scrambling desperately for freedom ahead of death and/or torture at the hands of the communists makes for a testament to human determination." - New York Post.

Join Cinema Center in partnership with The New York Film Critics Series for a special screening of A Thousand Times Good Night before it's in theaters!  A recorded live event with Peter Travers interviewing Actor Juliette Binoche will be after the movie.  Come join us for the Sneak Preview fun!

 

Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is one of world's top war photojournalists, capturing dangerous and chilling images in the most dire landscapes, all in an effort to shed light on the real cost of modern war. But she's also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. After a near-death experience chronicling the ritual of a female suicide bomber, husband Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) levels an ultimatum: give up the dangerous profession or lose the family she counts on being there when she returns from each assignment. Yet the conviction that her photos can make a difference keeps pulling at Rebecca's resolve, making it difficult for her to walk away entirely. With an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that daughter Steph (Lauryn Canny) is allowed to join her, Rebecca comes face to face with just how much she risks each time she steps back into the fray.

Join us for our silent film series where we couple classic silent films with local artists to perform the soundtrack.  Our first film in the series is Nosferatu, and the local band performing the soundtrack is The End Times Spasm Band.

 

The film begins in the Carpathian mountains, where real estate agent Hutter (Gustav von Wagenheim) has arrived to close a sale with the reclusive Herr Orlok (Max Schreck). Despite the feverish warnings of the local peasants, Hutter insists upon completing his journey to Orlok's sinister castle. Hutter catches on that Orlok is no ordinary mortal when he witnesses the vampiric nobleman loading himself into a coffin in preparation for his journey to Bremen. By the time the ship bearing Orlok arrives at its destination, the captain and crew have all been killed-and partially devoured. There follows a wave of mysterious deaths in Bremen, which the local authorities attribute to a plague of some sort. But Ellen, Hutter's wife, knows better. Armed with the knowledge that a vampire will perish upon exposure to the rays of the sun, Ellen offers herself to Orlok, deliberately keeping him "entertained" until sunrise. At the cost of her own life, Ellen ends Orlok's reign of terror once and for all.

In partnership with IPFW Communications Department to bring Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933–1945 art gallery to Artlink, Cinema Center will be showing A Love to Hide.

 

A young Jewish girl looking to escape the clutches of the Third Reich after seeing her parents and sister brutally slain while attempting to make their way to England is sheltered by an old friend whose status as a member of the "third" sex soon leads the Gestapo pounding on his door as well. Betrayed by a smuggler who sat idly by as her family was casually slaughtered by the SS, terrified Sara (Louise Monot) flees into the comforting care of childhood summer-vacation chum Jean (Jeremie Renier) and his faithful lover Philippe (Bruno Todeschini). Though safe for the moment thanks to Jean's quick-thinking plan to pass her off as a Gallic employee of his family's laundry business, Sara watches in horror as her homosexual protector is forced into a Nazi labor camp as a tragic result of a bad decision made by Jean's troublesome brother Jacques (Nicholas Gob).

Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets

Florian Habricht's witty, innovative documentary follows the legendary titular band (perhaps the smartest and most charismatic in all of BritPop) as they prepare to say farewell after 25 years of performances. Though culminating with the farewell concert the band played to thousands of adoring fans in their hometown of Sheffield, England, PULP is by no means a traditional concert film or rock doc. As much a testament to the band as it is to the city and inhabitants of Sheffield, PULP weavesexclusive concert footage with man-on-the-street interviews and dreamy staged sequences to paint a picture much larger, funnier, more moving and more life-affirming than any music film of recent memory.

Animals Q&A with Director

Friday, December 5th at 7:30pm

 

Come enjoy a Q&A with Fort Wayne native Director Collin Schiffli after a screening of his movie "Animals" at 7:30pm!

 

This film tells the story of Jude (David Dastmalchian) and Bobbie (Kim Shaw): a young couple that exist somewhere between homelessness and the fantasy of their imaginations. Though they masterfully con and steal in an attempt to stay one step ahead of their addiction, they are ultimately forced to face the reality of their situation when one of them gets hospitalized.

 

"Dastmalchian and Shaw are thoroughly convincing both as vividly drawn, emotionally complex individuals, and as a couple inextricably bound by addiction and enabling. Among the well-cast supporting players, John Heard makes the most significant impact." - Variety.

Griffith, as well as the first screen version of Clement Moore's 1822 poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas."  Other films featured in this collection are: A Holiday Pageant At Home (1901), A Winter Straw Ride (1906), A Trap For Santa (1909), A Christmas Accident (1912), The Adventure Of The Wrong Santa Claus (1914), Santa Claus Vs.
