Trouble Every Day

(Claire Denis, 2001) · Trouble Every Day polarized audiences by blurring the lines between sexuality and violence. When a scientist (Vincent Gallo) searches out an old colleague who's gone missing and uncovers his ghastly secret, the stage is set for corporeal filmmaking of the highest order, soaked through with copious amounts of splatter and gore. The film's gruesome anatomization of the origins and consequences of physical lust suggests that lurking on the flip side of all carnal desire is a desire for carnage.

35 Shots of Rum

(Claire Denis, 2008) · Denis achieved international prominence for her intensely physical filmmaking style--but with 35 Shots, she proved her versatility by shifting gears to craft a mellow and warmly intimate study in human relations. The deep bond between Lionel, a widowed train conductor, and his daughter Josephine, a college student, takes center stage as Denis explores the various relationships in which they are entangled. The result is, as Dave Kehr says, "a ballet of emotions, executed with weightless grace and poise."

High Life

(Claire Denis, 2018) · CLAIRE DENIS IN PERSON FOR A POST-FILM Q&A! Monte (Robert Pattinson) and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to deep space. The crew-death-row inmates led by a doctor (Juliette Binoche) with sinister motives has vanished. As the mystery of what happened onboard the ship unravels, father and daughter must rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole. High Life is a visually arresting head-trip from the contemporary master of cinematic viscerality.

runtime: 110m format: DCP


4/9/19 @ 9:30 PM


(Lana & Lilly Wachowski, 1999) · Doc Films celebrates the 20th anniversary of this classic mind-bending science fiction action drama by the Wachowskis. Starring Keanu Reeves as Neo and Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus, The Matrix tells the story a group of rebels trying to resist a simulation that all of humanity is trapped in. It's a film truly reflective of its time that invokes themes as old as Plato's Allegory of the Cave. This staple of the cyberpunk genre follows Neo as he finds his role in the struggle against the powerful entities that run the simulation.

runtime: 136m format: 35mm


4/12/19 @ 9:30 PM


(Olivia Wilde, 2019) · On the eve of their graduation, two overachieving high school seniors realize that they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night. Told from a wildly original, fresh and modern perspective, Booksmart is an unfiltered comedy about high school best friends and the bonds we create that last a lifetime. Capturing the spirit of our times, the film is a coming of age story for a new generation.

runtime: 105m format: DCP


4/16/19 @ 7:00 PM


(Ramy Youssef, 2019) · Join us for a free advance screening of Ramy, a new webseries from A24 that follows a first-generation Egyptian-American named Ramy, who is on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighborhood. We will be screening the first three episodes.

The National: I Am Easy To Find

(Gene Stupnitsky, 2019) · The result of an email from Mike Mills to Matt Berninger in 2017 is I Am Easy to Find, a 24 minute film starring Alicia Vikander, and I Am Easy to Find, a 68 minute album by The National. The former is not the video for the latter; the latter is not the soundtrack to the former. The two projects are, as Mike Mills calls them, "Playfully hostile siblings that love to steal from each other"--they share music and words and DNA and impulses and a vision about what it means to be human in 2019, but don't necessarily need one another.

An opportunity to watch Mike Mills' short film, starring Alicia Vikander, and hear The National's new album in full, before release on May 17th. The film will start at 9:00 PM, followed by the listening session of the album.

Tickets are to be purchased at the door, on a first-come-first-served basis. Our theater seats 435.


5/10/19 @ 9:30 PM


(Gene Stupnitsky, 2019) · Invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Room's Jacob Tremblay) asks his best friends Lucas and Thor for some much-needed help on how to pucker up. When they hit a dead end, Max decides to use his father's drone to spy on the teenage girls next door. When the boys lose the drone, they skip school and hatch a plan to retrieve it before Max's dad can figure out what happened.
