Old Greenbelt Theatre

Week of Friday, August 31st


2018 - R - 135 mins - CC - DVS

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the true story of Ron Stallworth, the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, he sets out on a dangerous mission to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective recruits a more seasoned colleague into the undercover investigation.  Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. 

For all its revelations of racist rot at the core of American society, Lee also offers a clear, specific and wondrous, if wary, view of change that's possible because, at one time and to some extent, it actually happened.

My Man Godfrey

NR ‧ 1936 ‧ 96 mins.

Mon. Sept. 3, 1:00 PM

   Fifth Avenue socialite Irene Bullock (Carole Lombard) needs a “forgotten man” to win a scavenger hunt, and no one is more forgotten than Godfrey Park (William Powell), who resides in a dump by the East River. Irene hires Godfrey as a servant for her riotously unhinged family, to the chagrin of her spoiled sister, Cornelia (Gail Patrick), who tries her best to get Godfrey fired. As Irene falls for her new butler, Godfrey turns the tables and teaches the frivolous Bullocks a lesson or two.


Coming Sept. 14

The Wife 

2017 - R - 100 mins - CC - DVS
 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.
