TUESDAY JANUARY 17 DOUBLE FEATURE

ARRIVAL 2:30, 7:00
When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team — led by expert translator Louise Banks (Amy Adams) — races against time to decipher their intent. As tensions mount between fearful governments, Banks discovers the aliens’ true purpose and, to avert global war, takes a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity. Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker co-star in Denis Villeneuve's (Sicario) provocative science fiction thriller. (2016, 116 min, DCP 'Scope)

+ NOCTURNAL ANIMALS 4:45, 9:15

From writer/director Tom Ford (A Single Man) comes a haunting romantic thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption. Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star as a divorced couple discovering dark truths about each other and themselves in this dark, disturbing film. Michael Shannon and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (who won the Golden Globe for his performance) co-star. (2016, 116 min, DCP ‘Scope)

 
     
   


WEDNESDAY JANUARY 18 DOUBLE FEATURE

THE AFRICAN QUEEN 3:15, 7:00

Humphrey Bogart finally won the Oscar for his portrayal of the world-class souse who takes the impossibly prim spinster Katharine Hepburn down the Congo in his rattletrap steamer. John Huston’s splendid comedy/romance/adventure remains one of the most popular Hollywood movies of all time. (1951, 105 min, 35mm)

+ RIVER OF NO RETURN 5:10, 9:00

During Gold Rush times, the fierce rapids running the crevasses of the Canadian Rockies provides the only escape route from Indians on the warpath for ex-con Robert Mitchum, his son, and sultry saloon singer Marilyn Monroe. Otto Preminger shot his only western with the newly developed CinemaScope cameras, capturing both the breathtaking scenery and Monroe at her most gorgeous. (1954, 91 min, DCP ‘Scope)

 
     
   


THURSDAY JANUARY 19 DOUBLE FEATURE

THE GREAT DICTATOR 3:15, 7:00

The U.S. was not yet in World War II when Charles Chaplin leveled his comedy arsenal at Der Führer by playing the dual roles of Hitler-like Adenoid Hynkel and a Jewish barber who is a dead-ringer for der Nutsie. Puns, sight gags and slapstick abound as Chaplin skewers fascism, balancing his attack with poignant scenes of a ghetto in the clutches of storm-trooping terror. (1940, 124 min, 35mm)

+ DUCK SOUP 5:35, 9:15

Classic Marx Brothers madness has Groucho lording over the small nation of Freedonia and declares war on a neighboring country just for the hell of it. With enough gags for five movies, Leo McCarey directed the Brothers’ purest, most enduring vehicle. (1933, 68 min, DCP)

TIM FERRISS: Tools of Titans

Whether you’re a millionaire-in-the-making or just trying to check off your to-do list every single day, you’re always on the hunt for how to do your best, but where do you even start? Enter Tim Ferris of Four-Hour Work Week, and his latest book Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers.

Just for you, Tim picked the brains of 200+ of the most creative, successful leaders from around the world to help you do better every day, including Brene Brown, Malcolm Gladwell, Jamie Foxx, Reid Hoffman, and dozens of others. He asked them actionable questions (What does the first hour of their day look like? What do their workout routines look like and why? What are the biggest time wastes they avoid?) so that you can apply their philosophies to your own life. To quote Tim, who tried many of these tactics himself, “The lessons have made me millions of dollars and saved me years of wasted effort and frustration.”

Come hear from Tim at INFORUM, and who knows — maybe you’ll end up featured in his next book!

Time: 6:00 check-in and premium reception, 7:00 program, 8:15 book signing
