The Purge: Election Year

(James DeMonaco, 2016) · A presidential candidate hits the streets during the annual purge, a 12-hour period when all laws are suspended.

Right Now, Wrong Then

(Sang-soo Hong, 2015) · Over the course of a single day, a film director with time on his hands meets a painter and persuades her to join him in a series of cafes and bars.

The conversation flows as freely as the soju in this delicately crafted meditation on romance from Korean auteur Hong Sang-soo. Please note that the second screening now begins at 9:30 PM, not 10:00 PM as previously stated.

runtime: 93 min format: DCP
