HORTON HEARS A WHO
Today! Thursday, March 22 @ 1:00PM
Animated elephant Horton (Jim Carrey) finds a speck of dust floating in the Jungle of Nool. Upon investigation of the speck, Horton discovers the tiny city of Who-ville and its residents, the Whos, which he can hear but cannot see. Horton forms a friendship with the mayor of Who-ville, Ned McDodd (Steve Carell), and promises to transport Who-ville to safety. However, Horton encounters opposition from his jungle neighbors, who don't want to believe in the existence of Who-ville.
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

After the death of his father, T'Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king—and as Black Panther—gets tested when he's drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.

THE DEATH OF STALIN

"Armando Iannucci, a virtuoso of political evisceration, turns horror into comedy in this eccentric comic shocker about a strong man and his world of ashes and blood."

CÉZANNE: PORTRAITS OF A LIFE
NR | 82 mins | 2018 | Dir. Phil Grabsky
"...Engaged commentary (including contributions from Cézanne’s great-grandson Philippe) and accretion of detail mean this is an excellent primer for the artist’s work, whether or not you can make it to the exhibition."
-Andrew Pulver, The Guardian

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.

THE HEDY LAMARR STORY
NR | 90 mins | 2017 | Dir. Alexandra Dean
"What makes 'Bombshell' intriguing is not just Lamarr's gift for invention, it's also what a fiery individualist she was, someone who had no regrets about her eventful life ('You learn from everything'), not even its racy, tabloid elements."
-Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Tuesday, March 27 @ 8:00PM - Free!

Austrian actress Hedy Lamarr fled an oppressive marriage to create a name for herself as one of Hollywood's top leading ladies in the 1940s. Behind the glamour and sex appeal, though, was a talented and inquisitive inventor who created a radio system that is now considered the basis of Bluetooth technology.
Twenty-eight independent theaters in 25 states will participate in the National Evening of Science on Screen event, each hosting a program pairing a scientific lecture with a screening of a feature or documentary film. We'll be joined for a post-screening discussion by Drs. Jessica Vitak and Christina Walter of University of Maryland, College Park.
The purpose of the evening? To celebrate using one of the nation’s favorite pastimes—going to the movies—to promote public understanding of science.

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.

Coming Soon: ANGST - Anxiety Documentary Screening - FREE!
Sat. Apr. 21 at 11:00AM
Free movie for students and parents!
Featuring Olympian Michael Phelps, this movie aims to raise awareness about anxiety in children and teens. This topic is timely since students will begin PARCC testing the following week and because schools have seen an increase in bullying over the past few years. Following the movie a brief discussion will be lead by Gretchen Schock, Owner of Bee Yoga Fusion, and Donna Behe, PGCPS Guidance Counselor, where students can ask questions and gain access to additional resources. Whether you think you suffer from anxiety or would just like to learn more, everyone is welcome to attend. The Old Greenbelt Theatre will also offer a small popcorn for $1.50! Run time is 55 minutes; appropriate for ages 10 and up.
Special thanks to our sponsors Bee Yoga Fusion, City of Greenbelt ACE, Eleanor Roosevelt High School PTSA, Greenbelt Elementary School PTA & Greenbelt Middle School PTA.
