ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL
Opening Wednesday, July 1 at the State Theatre!

Watch the Trailer

2015/USA/PG-13/105 min
Directors: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
Cast: Thomas Mann, RJ Cyler, Olivia Cooke

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s Me and Earl and the Dying Girl stars Thomas Mann as Greg, a high-school senior who spends most of his time filming low-budget remakes of classic movies with his friend Earl (RJ Cyler). Greg purposefully leads an antisocial life; his mother, concerned with his behavior, pushes him to befriend a classmate named Rachel (Olivia Cooke) who is battling leukemia. The two surprisingly develop a rich friendship, and she helps Greg and Earl with their creative endeavors. But when Rachel’s condition grows more serious, Greg must deal with the messiness of real life.

“‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’ has those handkerchief moments, but the laughs far outnumber the hard and sad punches. This is a movie that’s grounded in reality, has just enough whimsy and soars to the stars. It’s one of the best films of 2015.”
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

“It’s a fresh, beautiful and heartbreaking achievement that continues to surprise until the very last scene. It’s dangerous to call something an instant classic, but sometimes it’s simply the truth.”
- Gregory Ellwood, Hitfix

“A smart-ass charmer, merciless tearjerker and sincere celebration of teenage creativity.”
- John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

“Poignant without being melodramatic, overflowing with unforced charm, ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’ holds a unique appeal that’s certain to last.”
- Anisha Jhaveri, IndieWIRE

INSIDE OUT
Now Playing at the Bijou by the Bay!

Watch the Trailer

2015/USA/PG/94 min
Directors: Pete Docter, Ronaldo Del Carmen
Cast: Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

“’Inside Out’ is not just fun and breezy, it’s also truly weird and wicked smart in its thoroughly heartfelt conclusions.”
- Jessica Kiang, The Playlist

“This is a humane and heart-wrenchingly beautiful film from Docter; even measured alongside Pixar’s numerous great pictures, it stands out as one of the studio’s very best.”
- Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

“This adventurous outing manages the great Pixar trick of operating on two levels-captivating fun for kids, disarming smarts for adults-that sets the studio apart.”
- Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

“Pixar’s 15th feature proves to be the greatest idea the toon studio has ever had … promises to forever change the way people think about the way people think, delivering creative fireworks grounded by a wonderfully relatable family story.”
- Peter Debruge, Variety

When Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murrary) and his Columbia University colleagues (Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis) are kicked out of their prestigious academic posts, they start a private practice as professional ghost-catchers. Although the three parascientists are idle for awhile, their television advertisements finally pay off when beautiful Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) contracts them. It seems her apartment has become the entryway for ghosts hellbent on terrorizing New York City. Soon they’re going to her rescue, trying to rid the city of an otherworldly evil. “Ghostbusters” hit U.S. screens in June of 1984 and went on to become one of the most successful comedy films of all time, spawning a sequel and a popular animated series.

BRINGING UP BABY
Playing Monday, July 6 at 10:30 am – FREE! – Cherry Festival Week Classics

1938/USA/NR/103 min
Director: Howard Hawks
Cast: Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Charlie Ruggles

Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant star in this inspired comedy about a madcap heiress with a pet leopard who meets an absent-minded paleontologist and unwittingly makes a fiasco of both their lives. David Huxley (Grant) is the stuffy paleontologist who needs to finish an exhibit on dinosaurs and thus land a $1 million grant for his museum. At a golf outing with his potential benefactors, Huxley is spotted by Susan Vance (Hepburn) who decides that she must have the reserved scientist at all costs. She uses her pet leopard, Baby, to trick him into driving to her Connecticut home, where a dog wanders into Huxley’s room and steals the vital last bone that he needs to complete his project. The real trouble begins when another leopard escapes from the local zoo and Baby is mistaken for it, leading Huxley and Susan into a series of harebrained and increasingly more insane schemes to save the cat from the authorities. Inevitably, the two end up in the local jail, where things get even more out of hand: Susan pretends to be the gun moll to David’s diabolical, supposedly wanted criminal. Naturally, the mismatched pair falls in love through all the lunacy.

1959/USA/NR 120 min
Director: Billy Wilder
Cast: Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, George Raft, Joe E. Brown

Musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) lose their jobs when a speakeasy owned by mob boss Spats Columbo (George Raft) is raided by prohibition agents. Several weeks later, Joe and Jerry get a job performing in Urbana and end up witnessing a gangland massacre in a parking garage. Fearing that they will be next on the mobsters’ hit lists, Joe devises an ingenious plan for disguising their identities. Soon they are all dolled up and performing as Josephine and Daphne in Sweet Sue’s all-girl orchestra. En route to Florida by train with Sweet Sue’s band, the boys (girls?) make the acquaintance of Sue’s lead singer Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe, in what may be her best performance). Joe and Jerry immediately fall in love, though of course their new feminine identities prevent them from acting on their desires. Still, they are determined to woo her, and they enact an elaborate series of gender-bending ruses complicated by the fact that flirtatious millionaire Osgood Fielding (Joe E. Brown) has fallen in love with “Daphne.” The plot gets even thicker when Spats Columbo and his boys show up in Florida.

DUCK SOUP
Playing Wednesday, July 8 at 10:30 am – FREE! – Cherry Festival Week Classics

1933/USA/NR/70 min
Director: Leo McCarey
Cast: Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and Zeppo Marx

In this 1933 Marx Brothers film, the mythical country of Freedonia is broke and on the verge of revolution. Mrs. Teasdale (Margaret Dumont), Freedonia’s principal benefactress, will lend the country 20 million dollars if the president withdraws and places the government in the hands of the “fearless, progressive” Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx). At his inauguration, Firefly shows up late, insults everyone in sight, and sings a song about how he intends to abuse his power. Naturally, the crowd cheers wildly. Meanwhile, Ambassador Trentino (Louis Calhern) of neighboring Sylvania schemes to oust Firefly and take over Freedonia himself. To gather enough evidence to discredit Firefly, he sends his most trusted spies, Chicolini (Chico Marx) and Pinky (Harpo Marx). Five minutes after they show up in Freedonia, both spies become important members of Firefly’s cabinet, though Chicolini keeps his day job as a peanut vendor. Firefly eventually declares war on Sylvania, an absurd farrago with Firefly changing uniforms from scene to scene, Chicolini going to the other side because the food is better, and Pinky parading around the battlefield with a sandwich board reading “Join the army and see the navy.”

AMERICAN GRAFFITI
Playing Thursday, July 9 at 10:30 am – FREE! – Cherry Festival Week Classics

1973/USA/PG/110
Director: George Lucas
Cast: Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Harrison Ford, Cindy Williams

It’s the last night of summer 1962, and the teenagers of Modesto, California, want to have some fun before adult responsibilities close in. Among them are Steve (Ron Howard) and Curt (Richard Dreyfuss), college-bound with mixed feelings about leaving home; nerdy Terry “The Toad” (Charles Martin Smith), who scores a dream date with blonde Debbie (Candy Clark); and John (Paul Le Mat ), a 22-year-old drag racer who wonders how much longer he can stay champion and how he got stuck with 13-year-old Carol (Mackenzie Phillips) in his deuce coupe. As D. J. Wolfman Jack spins 41 vintage tunes on the radio throughout the night, Steve ponders a future with girlfriend Laurie (Cindy Williams), Curt chases a mystery blonde, Terry tries to act cool, and Paul prepares for a race against Bob Falfa (Harrison Ford), but nothing can stop the next day from coming, and with it the vastly different future ushered in by the 1960s. Fresh off The Godfather (1972), producer Francis Ford Coppola had the clout to get his friend George Lucas’s project made, but only for $750,000 on a 28-day shooting schedule. Despite technical obstacles, and having to shoot at night, cinematographer Haskell Wexler gave the film the neon-lit aura that Lucas wanted, evoking the authentic look of a suburban strip to go with the authentic sound of rock-n-roll.

Playing Friday, July 10 at 10:30 am – FREE! – Cherry Festival Week Classics

1961/USA/PG/115 min
Director: Blake Edwards
Cast: Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard and Patricia Neal

In an idealized New York City during the early ’60s, Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) is a charming socialite with a youthful zest for life who lives alone in a nearly bare apartment. She has such a flippant lifestyle that she won’t even give her cat a name, because that would be too much of a commitment to a relationship. Maintaining a childlike innocence yet wearing the most perfect of designer clothes and accessories from Givenchy, she spends her time on expensive dates and at high-class parties. She escorts various wealthy men, yet fails to return their affections after they have given her gifts and money. Holly’s carefree independence is changed when she meets her neighbor, aspiring writer Paul (George Peppard), who is suffering from writer’s block while being kept by a wealthy woman (Patricia Neal). Just when Holly and Paul are developing their sweet romance, Doc (Buddy Ebsen) appears on the scene and complicates matters, revealing the truth about Holly’s past.

Two dimwitted pals attempt to fib their way through their high school reunion with disastrous results in this bubbly comedy from David Mirkin, frequent director of the cult TV sitcom Get a Life!. Los Angeles dim-bulbs Romy (Mira Sorvino) and Michelle (Lisa Kudrow) have been best friends since childhood. Their shared passions include shopping, club-hopping, and creating their own candy-colored fashions. When their tenth high school reunion looms, the friends realize that their lives are not impressive enough to cow the popular crowd that tormented them in their teen years. So Romy borrows a Jaguar, and the duo concocts a story about how they became top corporate executives by creating Post-It Notes. Once they are at the reunion, however, Romy and Michelle’s scheme unravels. Saturnine classmate Heather (Janeane Garofalo), who really did make a fortune as an inventor, exposes their fraud, and the girls find themselves mocked again, by everyone except Sandy Frink (Alan Cumming), a nerd millionaire with a lingering crush on Michelle.

1959/UK/NR/83 min
Director: Jack Arnold
Cast: Peter Sellers, Jean Seberg, David Kossoff

The economy of the teeny-tiny European duchy of Grand Fenwick is threatened when an American manufacturer comes up with an imitation of Fenwick’s sole export, its fabled wine. Crafty prime minister Count Mountjoy (Peter Sellers) comes up with a plan: Grand Fenwick will declare war on the United States. Grand Duchess Gloriana (Peter Sellers again) is hesitant: how can meek little Grand Fenwick win such a conflict? Mountjoy explains that the plan is to lose the war, then rely upon American foreign aid to replenish Grand Fenwick’s treasury. Bumbling military officer Tully Bascombe (Peter Sellers yet again) leads his country’s ragtag army into battle. They cross the Atlantic in an ancient wooden vessel, then set foot on Manhattan Island, fully prepared to down weapons and surrender. But New York City is deserted, due to an air raid drill. While wandering around, Sellers comes upon atomic scientist David Kossoff and the scientist’s pretty daughter Jean Seberg. Kossoff has been working on the deadly “Q Bomb,” a football-sized weapon with the destructive capacity of a hundred hydrogen bombs. Suddenly seized with patriotic fervor, Tully captures Kossoff, his daughter and the bomb and brings them all back to Grand Fenwick. Tully has “won” the war-precisely what he’d been told not to do. The upshot of this “victory” is that every world power converges upon Grand Fenwick to claim the Q Bomb for themselves.

Director: Mel Brooks
Cast: Mel Brooks, John Candy, Rick Moranis, Bill Pullman

A space bum helps rescue a princess from an evil overlord with the help of a benevolent elder in this Star Wars send-up written and directed by Mel Brooks. Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-man, half-dog co-pilot, Barf the Mawg (John Candy), are content to scour the galaxy living the easy life. But they reluctantly come to the rescue when Druish Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) is threatened by the evil Lord Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis), who wants to steal all of the air from her planet, Druidia. Trapped on a harsh desert world with Vespa and her robot chaperone, Dot Matrix (voice of Joan Rivers), Lone Starr and Barf are helpless to prevent Helmet from kidnapping the girl. But assistance arrives in the form of Yogurt (Brooks), a wizard who turns Lone Starr on to a mysterious power known as The Schwartz. Catching up with Helmet just as he’s transforming his spaceship into a giant vacuum cleaner in orbit around Druidia, the reluctant heroes stage a dramatic showdown. Although it borrows most of its plot from the Star Wars series, Spaceballs also pokes fun at Star Trek, Snow White, and Planet of the Apes — as well as the entire videocassette and movie marketing industries.

MR. HULOT’S HOLIDAY
Playing Wednesday, July 22 at 10:30 am – 25¢ Wednesday Classic Matinee – July Classic Comedies

1953/France/NR/85 min
Director: Jacques Tati
Cast: Jacques Tati, Nathalie Pascaud, Louis Perrault, Michelle Rolla

Forefather of Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean, Jacques Tati’s Monsieur Hulot–a recurring character in several of his movies–is a blithely clumsy troublemaker, an insouciant twit who leaves uproar in his wake without being aware of it. Trying to describe this 1953 comedy is next to impossible except to say it is a series of vignettes at a vacation resort, with the distracted Hulot providing a lot of laughs. Tati directs, and in a way what that really means is that he composes this movie with a perfect eye and ear for the comic possibilities in everything: composition, lighting, minimal marble-mouth dialogue, certain sounds (a duck call, a door repeatedly opening and shutting). This is a superior work that ranks among all-time classic comedies.
