Our new feature film this week is Boyhood. Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s film is a groundbreaking story of growing up, as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha. Tonight is your last chance to see Snowpiercer at 7:30.
