Director: Trevor Nunn
Cast: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes, Stephen Campbell Moore
Runtime: 110 minutes
The year is 2000. Joan Stanley is a retired scientist living in a London suburb when she is arrested for crimes committed many years ago. We flash back to 1938, and young Joan is a new student at Cambridge, where a chance encounter with Sonya, an alluring fellow student, draws her into a circle of politicized youths supporting the Republicans in Spain and the Soviet dream of a classless society. Joan falls for Sonya’s brother Leo, a dashing idealist in search of adventure. When the Second World War begins, Joan goes to work for Max at a top-secret British intelligence project of great interest to Leo. Joan is soon facing several difficult choices: between national loyalties, between belief systems, between men. Somewhere in all this, she will also discover her tremendous potential.

Halla is a middle-aged choir director in a small town, popular amongst her neighbors and respected in the community. Unbeknownst to her fellow citizens, she is also an environmentalist vigilante who destroys power lines in an effort to preserve the beautiful local countryside. Deep in the trenches of her anonymous battle against industrialist destruction, Halla depends on the few solitary sources of support in her life: her identical twin sister, a co-conspirator who keeps her updated on the movements of the government, and a mysterious local farmer. Just as Halla begins to ramp up her anti-industrial campaign efforts, she receives entirely unexpected news: an application she made years ago to adopt a child from Ukraine has finally been approved, and she’s about to become a mother.

Director: Martha Kehoe, Joan Tosoni
Featuring: Gordon Lightfoot, Randy Bachman, Tom Cochrane
Runtime: 91 mins
Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind is an exploration of the career, music and influence of legendary Canadian musical icon, Gordon Lightfoot. With unprecedented access to the artist, the film takes audiences from high school auditoriums in straight-laced, small town Ontario in the 50s to the coffee houses of Yorkville and Greenwich Village in the 60s, through Lightfoot’s turbulent, substance-fueled arena shows of the 70s, and finally to the artist in present day.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2019@ 4:30 & 7:30 – THE PUBLIC
Director: Emilio Estevez
Cast: Emilio Estevez, Alec Baldwin, Jena Malone
Runtime: 119 minutes
It begins quietly enough in a Cincinnati library on a winter’s day. Stuart and Myra do their best to manage the daily assortment of knowledge seekers, loiterers, and homeless people who frequent their branch. It’s freezing outside. As closing time draws near, Jackson sparks an act of civil disobedience among his fellow library patrons who have nowhere to sleep. They refuse to leave, defying first the entreaties of the library staff, then a local political operative, and soon a team of riot police led by Detective Ramstead, a hard-charging crisis negotiator. Outside, a TV reporter juices up the story for the wider world.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2019 @ 4:30 & 7:30
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2019 @ 4:30 & 7:30 – THE FAREWELL
Director: Lulu Wang
Cast: Awkwafina, Tzi Ma, Diana Lin
Runtime: 98 minutes
Language: English, Mandarin w/EST
Based on true events, the film follows a young Chinese American woman named Billi as she travels back to China to visit her dying grandmother. Billi’s family has decided to spare their beloved matriarch the news of her terminal diagnosis so as not to darken what time she has left. In order for everyone to have a chance to say goodbye without tipping her off that the end is near, they orchestrate an elaborate excuse to reunite in the form of a fake wedding. Though cultures clash and family conflict ensues, the story is told with universally relatable warmth and charm.
Little by little, we realize that this story is not only about Billi saying goodbye to her grandmother, but also about her reconnecting with a country and extended family that she left behind at a young age. The Farewell is truly remarkable. It will make you laugh out loud, cry both sad and happy tears, and contemplate the meaning of home.
