Read the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s review

Watch the Trailer

2015/USA/R/97 min
Director: Noah Baumbach
Cast: Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver

Noah Boaumbach’s comedy “While We’re Young” stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a childless New York married couple in their mid-forties. As their other friends all start having children, the couple gravitates toward a young hipster couple named Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried). He’s an aspiring documentary filmmaker, a vocation Josh already has. Soon the older couple begins enjoying the energy they feel hanging out with the younger generation, but eventually Josh begins to suspect his new best friend might not be as straightforward and trustworthy as he thought.

“A sharp look at getting older, growing up and assuming responsibility.”
- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

“Baumbach has produced another excruciatingly pleasurable and wince-inducing study in insecurity”
- Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“It’s a satire of endless youth, ‘The Kids Are All Right’ colliding with ‘My Generation.’ Yet it’s the best kind of grown-up absurdism.”
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Baumbach belongs in a select group of invaluable American directors. He makes movies built, increasingly, like traditionally structured studio comedies of an earlier age.”
- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

“’While We’re Young’ pairs two New York couples, one middle-aged and anxious and the other millennial and carefree. Both are in for a satirical skewering, but also – and here’s a change for Baumbach – something close to a hug.”
- Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“A smart, empathetic, sometimes scarily identifiable work from a writer-director who continues to carve a gratifying niche for himself in independent cinema.”
- Dustin Putman, The FilmFile.com

WOMAN IN GOLD
Now Playing at the Bijou by the Bay

Read the Arizona Republic’s review

Watch the Trailer

2015/USA/UK/PG-13/109 min
Director: Simon Curtis
Cast: Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl

Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.

“It’s a touching film that entertains with warmth and humor while teaching us something about history, law and justice with enormous heart, subtlety and compassion, brilliantly acted and skillfully written. Is there anything Helen Mirren cannot do?”
- Rex Reed, New York Observer

“The transformation of Reynold’s lawyer from a bumbler and stumbler to a victorious litigator, sticking it to an entire nation, is the stuff of a Frank Capra/Jimmy Stewart pic.”
- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

“Even with a starry cast, the stirring true story is this drama’s standout feature.”
- Anna Smith, Empire

“A wholly captivating Mirren makes Woman in Gold a positive film-going experience…”
- Leonard Maltin

“A brilliant movie…with many flashbacks to 1938 Vienna…that includes enticing cinematography of the Austrian locations…and fine acting. Just watching Helen Mirren is, as always, worth the price of admission.”
- Tony Medley, Tolucan Times

“Gloriously shot, finely acted.”
- Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International

M*A*S*H
Playing Wednesday, April 29 at 10:30 am – 25¢ Wednesday Classic Matinee

1970/USA/R/116 min
Director: Robert Altman
Cast: Elliott Gould, Donald Sutherland, Tom Skerritt

Between exceptionally gory hospital shifts and countless rounds of martinis, wisecracking surgeons Hawkeye Pierce (Donald Sutherland) and Trapper John McIntyre (Elliott Gould) make it their business to undercut the smug, moralistic pretensions of Bible-thumper Maj. Frank Burns (Robert Duvall) and Army true-believer Maj. “Hot Lips” Houlihan (Sally Kellerman). Abetted by such other hedonists as Duke Forrest (Tom Skerritt) and Painless Pole (John Schuck), as well as such (relative) innocents as Radar O’Reilly (Gary Burghoff), Hawkeye and Trapper John drive Burns and Houlihan crazy while engaging in such additional blasphemies as taking a medical trip to Japan to play golf, staging a mock Last Supper to cure Painless’s momentary erectile dysfunction, and using any means necessary to win an inter-MASH football game. MASH creates a casual, chaotic atmosphere emphasizing the constant noise and activity of a surgical unit near battle lines; it marked the beginning of Altman’s sustained formal experiments with widescreen photography, zoom lenses, and overlapping sound and dialogue, further enhancing the atmosphere with the improvisational ensemble acting for which Altman’s films quickly became known. Although the on-screen war was not Vietnam, MASH’s satiric target was obvious in 1970, and Vietnam War-weary and counter-culturally hip audiences responded to Altman’s nose-thumbing attitude towards all kinds of authority and embraced the film’s frankly tasteless yet evocative humor and its anti-war, anti-Establishment, anti-religion stance.

AIRPORT
Playing Wednesday, May 6 at 10:30 am – 25¢ Wednesday Classic Matinee

1970/USA/G/137 min
Directors: George Seaton, Henry Hathaway
Cast: Burt Lancaster, Dean Martin, George Kennedy

Mel Bakersfeld (Burt Lancaster) is the harried airport manager whose wife (Dana Wynter) has just discovered that he’s been having an affair with his assistant (Jean Seberg). Meanwhile, Bakersfeld’s brother-in-law, pilot Vernon Demarest (Dean Martin) has problems of his own, having just impregnated a stewardess (Jacqueline Bisset). But this all takes a back seat when a mad bomber (Van Heflin) detonates an explosive on the plane Demarest is piloting, imperiling all aboard as he attempts to land the crippled aircraft in a ferocious blizzard. All this catastrophe changes the lives of all involved as they face possible death. The movie mostly takes itself seriously, although the performances by Heflin and stowaway Helen Hayes, who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar, go over the top and beyond, lending some levity to all the melodramatic goings-on.

When Barry inadvertently meets a quirky florist named Vanessa, he breaks one of the cardinal rules of beedom–he talks to her. A friendship soon develops, and Barry gets a guided crash course in the ways of the human race. When he shockingly discovers that anyone can purchase honey right off the grocery store shelf, he realizes that his true calling is to stop this injustice and set the world right by suing the human race for stealing the bees’ precious honey.

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL
Playing Wednesday, May 20 at 10:30 am – 25¢ Wednesday Classic Matinee

1951/USA/NR/92 min
Director: Robert Wise
Cast: Michael Rennie, Patricia Neal, Hugh Marlowe

All of Washington, D.C., is thrown into a panic when an extraterrestrial spacecraft lands near the White House. Out steps Klaatu (Michael Rennie) a handsome and soft-spoken interplanetary traveler, whose “bodyguard” is Gort (Lock Martin), a huge robot who spews forth laser-like death rays when danger threatens. After being wounded by an overzealous soldier, Klaatu announces that he has a message of the gravest importance for all humankind, which he will deliver only when all the leaders of all nations will agree to meet with him. World politics being what they are in 1951, Klaatu’s demands are turned down and he is ordered to remain in the hospital, where his wounds are being tended. Klaatu escapes, taking refuge in a boarding house, where he poses as one “Mr. Carpenter” (one of the film’s many parallels between Klaatu and Christ). There the benign alien gains the confidence of a lovely widow (Patricia Neal) and her son, Bobby (Billy Gray), neither of whom tumble to his other-worldly origins, and seeks out the gentleman whom Bobby regards as “the smartest man in the world” — an Einstein-like scientist, Dr. Barnhardt (Sam Jaffe)

MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL
Playing Friday, May 22 – Time TBD – Friday Night Flicks – Tickets $3 or 2 for $5

1975/UK/PG/91 min
Directors: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones
Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle

From its opening multi-language titles (that sure looks like Swedish) to the closing arrest of the entire Dark Ages cast by modern-day bobbies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail helped to define “irreverence” and became an instant cult classic. This time the Pythonites savage the legend of King Arthur, juxtaposing some excellently selected exterior locations with an unending stream of anachronistic one-liners, non sequiturs, and slapstick set pieces. The Knights of the Round Table set off in search of the Holy Grail on foot, as their lackeys make clippety-clop sounds with coconut shells. A plague-ridden community, ringing with the cry of “bring out your dead,” offers its hale and hearty citizens to the body piles. A wedding of convenience is attacked by Arthur’s minions while the pasty-faced groom continually attempts to burst into song. The good guys are nearly thwarted by the dreaded, tree-shaped “Knights Who Say Ni!” A feisty enemy warrior, bloodily shorn of his arms and legs in the thick of battle, threatens to bite off his opponent’s kneecap. A French military officer shouts such taunts as “I fart in your general direction” and “I wave my private parts at your aunties.” Rabbits are a particular obsession of the writers this time around, ranging from the huge Trojan Rabbit to the “killer bunny” that decapitates one of the knights. Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin collaborated on the script and assumed most of the onscreen roles, while Gilliam and Jones served as co-directors.

THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE
Playing Wednesday, May 27 at 10:30 am – 25¢ Wednesday Classic Matinee

1972/USA/PG/117 min
Director: Ronald Neame
Cast: Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons

The Poseidon, an ocean liner larger than the Queens Elizabeth and Mary combined, is charting its course on New Year’s Eve. Just after midnight, Captain Harrison (Leslie Nielsen) spots the mother of all tidal waves. It is the last thing that Harrison and practically everyone else onboard sees before drowning — the Poseidon is turned upside down, with only a handful of survivors. The ten lucky ones — including Mike Rogo (Ernest Borgnine), Linda Rogo (Stella Stevens), Acres (Roddy McDowall), Belle Rosen (Shelley Winters), and Manny Rosen (Jack Albertson) — led by no-nonsense minister Frank Scott (Gene Hackman), desperately attempt to climb from the top of the ship (now submerged) to the bottom (now “the top”). The film’s theme song, “The Morning After,” sung by Maureen McGovern, earned an Oscar. In addition, The Poseidon Adventure received the Special Achievement Award for Special Effects; L.B. Abbott and A.D. Flowers were the recipients. A sequel, Beyond the Poseidon Adventure, came out in 1979.

DAZED AND CONFUSED
Playing Friday, May 22 – Time TBD – Friday Night Flicks – Tickets $3 or 2 for $5

1993/USA/R/103 min
Director: Richard Linklater
Cast: Jason London, Wiley Wiggins and Matthew McConaughey

Like George Lucas’ “American Graffiti,” Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused is an affectionate look at the youth culture of a bygone era. While Lucas took aim at the conservative 1950′s, Linklater jumps ahead a generation to the bicentennial year of 1976 to celebrate the joys of beer blasts, pot smoking and Frampton Comes Alive. Set on the last day of the academic year, the film follows the random activities of a sprawling group of Texas high schoolers as they celebrate the arrival of summer, their paths variously intersecting at a freshmen hazing, a local pool parlor and finally at a keg party.

The 1977 Broadway musical returns to the big screen with this production surrounding a 10-year-old Harlem foster child (played by “Beasts of the Southern Wild’s Quvenzhané Wallis”) taken in by a calculating billionaire (Jamie Foxx) who’s campaigning to be mayor. Abandoned by her biological parents as a baby, Annie (Wallis) spends every moment of every day attempting to avoid the wrath of her cruel foster mother Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). Thing start to look up for Annie, however, when she has a very public encounter with Will Stacks (Foxx), a local cell-phone mogul with mayoral ambitions. Stacks campaign isn’t going too well until he meets Annie and invites her into his home at the suggestion of his trusted top assistant Grace (Rose Byrne) and his ambitious PR advisor Guy (Bobby Cannavale). Meanwhile, what was originally conceived as a PR stunt to win over skeptical voters becomes something much more personal when the jaded tycoon realizes his little friend is much more than a mere good-luck charm.
