Opens May 18th

RBG

At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.

“A chronology of Ginsberg's subsequent victories shows how patiently and shrewdly she worked to establish the existence and pernicious effects of sex discrimination.” - Chicago Reader

Rated PG, 96 mins


How to Talk to Girls at Parties.jpg

Opens June 1st

How to Talk to Girls at Parties

Young Enn and his best friends stumble upon a bizarre gathering of teenagers who are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage. That doesn't stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan, a beautiful and rebellious alien who becomes fascinated with him. Together, they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic, punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that leads to the ultimate showdown between punks and aliens.

"The film's success rests on Elle Fanning and Alex Sharp's performance in this tragic love story. It would be cliché to say they have great chemistry, but they do. Elle's portrayal of the alien Zan is calculated, and consistent." - Film Thread

Rated R, 102 minutes


Opens June 15th

In Between (Bar Bahar)

Israeli-French film directed by Maysaloun Hamoud, In Between (Bar Bahar) follows three Palestinian women living in an apartment in Tel Aviv try to find a balance between traditional and modern culture.

“Hamoud's entirely live-action picture shows a society that allows women more freedom, but which only makes the pitfalls and hypocrisies stand out more.” - SF Weekly

“Although "In Between" depicts a nation in crisis, it's a crisis that's viewed through the intimate lens of family dinners, where generations struggle over conflicting values.” - Washington Post

Not Rated, 96 mins.

Opens June 15th

Boom For Real

A look at Jean-Michel Basquiat's life pre-fame, and how New York City, the times, the people and the movements around him formed the artist he became, BOOM FOR REAL weaves the story of Jean-Michel and the city with never before seen works, writings and photographs. Director Sara Driver worked closely and collaboratively with her friends and other artists who emerged from that scene: Nan Goldin, Jim Jarmusch, James Nares, Fab Five Freddy, Lee Quinones, Luc Sante and many others. As they participated in the film with their thoughts, period film footage, music, images, and anecdotes of their young friend, they helped visually tell the story of Jean-Michel's downtown NYC --pre Aids, President Reagan, the real estate and art boom, and before anyone was motivated by money and ambition. The definition of fame, success and power were very different than today -- to be a penniless but published poet was the height of success, until everything changed in the early 1980's. This is New York City's story before that change.

“What's admirable about the film is how Driver gives the cross-pollinating forces of music, media, fashion and art such concise, firsthand exploration.” - Globe and Mail

Not Rated, 78 mins

Open June 22nd

Mary Shelley

MARY SHELLEY tells the story of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Elle Fanning) - author of one of the world's most famous Gothic novels 'Frankenstein' - and her fiery, tempestuous relationship with renowned romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (Douglas Booth.) The pair are two outsiders constrained by polite society but bound together by a natural chemistry and progressive ideas that are beyond the boundaries of their age and time. Mary and Percy declare their love for each other and much to her family's horror they run away together, joined by Mary's half-sister Claire (Bel Powley.) In the midst of growing tension within their relationship during their stay at Lord Byron's (Tom Sturridge) house at Lake Geneva, the idea of Frankenstein is conceived when a challenge is put to all houseguests to write a ghost story. An incredible character is created, which will loom large in popular culture for centuries to come, but society at the time puts little value in female authors. At the tender age of 18, Mary is forced to challenge these preconceptions, to protect her work and to forge her own identity…

“The costumes and cinematography make the movie visually romantic, and hopefully the movie will cause more people to seek out Mary Shelley's work.” - Bust Magazine

Rated PG-13, 121 mins
