The Wife

2017 ‧ R ‧  CC ‧  DVS ‧ 100 mins

   Joan and Joe remain complements after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe (Jonathan Pryce) is casual, Joan (Glenn Close) is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man's wife.  As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.

"By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned."

The Big Bad Fox
and Other Tales

G ‧ 2017 ‧ 83 mins

SUNDAY Sept. 23, 11:00 am  

 The countryside isn't always as calm and peaceful as it's made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus.

in celebration of Art House Theater Day!


Taiwanese Classic Film Series: 

Taipei Story

In Mandarin with English subtitles ‧ NR ‧ 1985 ‧  119 mins.

Thurs. Sept. 27, 8:00 pm

 Taipei Story chronicles the growing estrangement between a washed-up baseball player (Hou, in a rare on-screen performance) working in his family’s textile business and his girlfriend (pop star Tsai Chin), who clings to the upward mobility of her career in property development. As the couple’s dreams of marriage and emigration begin to unravel, Yang’s gaze illuminates the precariousness of domestic life and the desperation of Taiwan’s globalized modernity.

In this classic Hitchcock thriller a local man's corpse appears on a nearby hillside and no one is quite sure what happened to him. Many of the town's residents secretly wonder if they are responsible, including the man's ex-wife, Jennifer, and Capt.

As the no-nonsense sheriff gets involved and local artist Sam Marlowe offers his help, the community slowly unravels the mystery.
