PG-13 | CC | DVS | 134 mins | 2018 | Dir. Ryan Coogler

"'Black Panther' could have been just another Marvel romp—a fun but ultimately disposable entry in the studio’s catalogue. But Ryan Coogler and company had the power, and perhaps the responsibility, to do much more. And they did."
-Jamelle Bouie, Slate

R | 107 mins | 2017 | Dir. Armando Ianucci

Tournées French Film Festival (Free!)

NR | French w/ Subtitles | 79 mins | 2015 |Dir. Philipe Faucon

"This poignant slice-of-life dramedy proves as modest in length as it is generous in rueful insight and emotional complexity"
-Justin Chang, Variety

Monday, March 19 @ 8:00PM

This film is part of the Tournées Film Festival, bringing French films to American audiences. This festival is made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S., the Centre National du Cinéma et de l'Image Animée (CNC), the French American Cultural Fund, Florence Gould Foundation and Highbrow Entertainment.

Fatima lives on her own with two daughters to support: 15-year old Souad, a teenager in revolt, and 18-year old Nesrine, who is starting medical school. Fatima speaks French poorly and is constantly frustrated by her daily interactions with her daughters. Her pride and joy, they are also a source of worry. To ensure the best possible future for them, she works odd hours as a cleaning woman. One day, she takes a fall on the stairs. On leave, Fatima begins to write to her daughters in Arabic that which she has never been able to express in French.


Important Announcement

POSTPONED: Barry Polisar - Live

On Saturday, March 24 at 11:00am we were planning to host beloved children's musician Barry Polisar. Mr. Polisar did not want his performance to discourage anyone from attending the March for Our Lives rally organized by the students from Parkland, Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School which is occurring at the same time. Therefore we have mutually agreed to postpone this event until a new date can be found.

Sun. Mar. 25 (evening)
Mon. Mar. 26 (matinee)

We hope you won't miss another fascinating documentary from renowned distributor Exhibition on Screen a
s part of our Spring 2018 Stage on Screen Series.

One can’t appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Featuring interviews with curators and experts from the National Portrait Gallery London, MoMA New York, National Gallery of Art Washington, and Musée d’Orsay Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences beyond the exhibition to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least known of all the impressionists – until now.
