The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Directed by Stephen Chbosky. US. 2012. PG-13. 102 min. Summit Entertainment. 35mm.

Sat, Dec 1 thru Thu, Dec 6 -- Roll over to view showtimes.

“Adapted by novelist turned film-and-TV writer turned director Stephen Chbosky from his own YA hit, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower harkens back to that long-ago era when 1600 was a top SAT score, and a choice token of affection was a carefully crafted mixtape. This fact alone might be enough to endear it to any pre-Millennial, but the film is also an earnest, big-hearted ode to friends as support and salvation, and to the talismanic quality More »

The Bishop’s Wife

Directed by Henry Koster. US. 1947. NR. 109 min. MGM. 35mm.

  • Sun, Dec 2
  • 2:00 pm

Handsome, devil-may-care Cary Grant as an angel?! Hard to believe – but vastly entertaining to watch. In this beautifully-paced holiday classic, David Niven plays a somewhat dour and preoccupied Episcopal bishop, whose faith and his marriage (to lovely Loretta Young) seems to be faltering. Then, more or less in answer to his prayer, along comes Cary, to quite cleverly and subtly (Loretta doesn’t even know that he is From Above) help straighten things out and, as the “Motion Picture More »

The Sessions

Directed by Ben Lewin. US. 2012. R. 95 min. Fox Searchlight. 35mm.

Fri, Dec 7 thru Thu, Dec 13 -- Roll over to view showtimes.

“John Hawkes’ polio-stricken poet in The Sessions imbues his quest to lose his virginity and connect in the most profound spiritual manner imaginable with another human being with such sweetness and light it’s as if he’s doing God a favor by ridding himself of his unwanted virginity. Hawkes is so charming and innately lovable that even God, as represented in this terrestrial realm by a priest played by a shaggy-haired William H. Macy, gives Hawkes a pass to More »

Black Christmas

Directed by Bob Clark. Canada. 1974. R. 98 min. Grindhouse. 35mm.

  • Fri, Dec 7
  • 9:45 pm

“In less than 10 years, Bob Clark went from codifying the slasher film genre in 1974′s Black Christmas to making a different kind of holiday movie in A Christmas Story. But the two films aren’t too far apart, at least in terms of their settings: Both take place in big, lit-up, snowbound houses. In A Christmas Story, it’s a suburban nuclear family home preparing for the holidays; in Black Christmas, it’s a sorority house being stalked by More »

Gremlins

Directed by Joe Dante. US. 1984. Age 9+. 106 min. Warner Bros. blu ray.

  • Sat, Dec 8
  • 2:00 pm

“Never expose them to bright light. Sunlight will kill them. Never get them wet, trust me on that. The one thing that you must never, ever do is feed them after midnight. Gremlins is Joe Dante (director), Chris Columbus (writer) and Steve Spielberg’s (producer) send up of the great horror films of the fifties mixed with Christmas cheer. Billy (Zach Galligan) receives an unusual pet from his father for Christmas, a Mogwai named Gizmo. He’s cute, funny and lovable. Unfortunately More »

Holiday Inn

Directed by Mark Sandrich. US. 1942. NR. 101 min. Universal. 35mm.

  • Sun, Dec 16
  • 2:00 pm

This is it! The movie that introduced the song “White Christmas” (sung, of course, by Bing Crosby), which won the Academy Award for Best Song (and went on to become the most popular song ever.) Not only that, this vastly entertaining war-time film musical, co- starring Fred Astaire, includes a whole collection of Irving Berlin’s holiday-themed songs, including “Easter Parade,” “Be Careful, It’s My Heart” (for Valentine’s Day), “Plenty to Be Thankful For” (for Thanksgiving), and especially More »

Two Years at Sea

Directed by Ben Rivers. UK. 2011. NR. 88 min. Northwest Film Forum. 35mm.

  • Sun, Dec 16
  • 4:30 pm

A lonely man never whistled so much! Ben Rivers beautifully lensed black and white portrait of man and his chosen environs, is the finest occupation project of the year. A long-form portrait of a man named Jake Williams, who lives a life of solitude in a dilapidated house in the middle of the Scottish Highlands. Following this unlikely real life subject through the seasons, Rivers uses old 16mm cameras and monochrome stock to accentuate the antiquity of the curios that adorn More »

A Christmas Story

Directed by Bob Clark. US. 1983. Age 6+. 98 min. Warner Bros. blu ray.

Sponsored by Upattinas School

  • Sat, Dec 22
  • 2:00 pm

“A Christmas Story grasps the full scope of childhood injustice and obsession. Amid the comically cranky Santa Clauses and tree-lighting mishaps, the movie’s key moment is a Billingsley crying jag, prompted by a fight with the neighborhood bully and the fear that his dad will clobber him. The affection audiences feel for A Christmas Story is related to the holiday spirit, yes, but specifically to director Bob Clark and writer Jean Shepherd’s awareness of how the true meaning of More »

Searching for Sugar Man

Directed by Malik Bendjelloui. Sweden. 2012. PG-13. 86 min. Sony Pictures Classics. 35mm.

  • Sun, Dec 30
  • 2:00 pm

“Mystery is a powerful, sometimes essential weapon in the arsenal of a cult artist. But what happens when great artists’ legacies are so enigmatic that no one seems to know whether they’re dead or alive, retired or making the most important art of their lives in absolute secrecy? What happens when the case grows so cold that even an artist’s most devoted fans are left salivating for the tiniest morsel of information about their idol? Those are some of the More »
