SUNDAY FEBRUARY 18 DOUBLE FEATURE

APOCALYPSE NOW Redux 4:30

Knee deep in the Vietnam War, military assassin Martin Sheen is ordered up river to find renegade colonel Marlon Brando and terminate him with extreme prejudice. Francis Ford Coppola paints the war as a hallucinatory obscenity, boasting some of the most mesmerizingly powerful set-pieces in film history. Coppola revisited the film decades later with this expanded re-edit. Frederic Forrest, Robert Duvall, Sam Bottoms and Dennis Hopper co- star; Oscar-winning cinematography by Vittorio Storaro. (1979/2001, 202 min, DCP 'Scope)

+ LAST FLAG FLYING 8:05

As war rages in 2003 Iraq, a former Navy Corps medic (Steve Carell) enlists two comrades (Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne) for a decidedly personal mission: to collect the body of his son from an Air Force base and deliver it to his family's burial plot. Richard Linklater's intimate and engaging road movie, adapted with Darryl Ponsican from his sequel to The Last Detail, is a deeply moving yet often funny tale of duty, patriotism, and friendship, with excellent performances from its three leads. One of last year's underseen gems. (2017, 124 min, DCP 'Scope)

In the near future, a time of artificial intelligence: 86-year-old Marjorie (the sublime Lois Smith)—a jumble of disparate, fading memories—has a handsome new companion (Jon Hamm) who looks like her deceased husband and is programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? Based on Jordan Harrison's Pulitzer-nominated play, Michael Almereyda’s (Experimenter) imaginative, mesmerizing film explores memory and identity, love and loss. Tim Robbins and Geena Davis co-star.

DARKEST HOUR 2:30, 7:00
6 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, ACTOR (Gary Oldman)
A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history. Kristen Scott Thomas, Lily James and Ben Mendelsohn co-star; Joe Wright directs. (2017, 125 min, DCP)

+ DUNKIRK 4:50, 9:20 PROJECTED IN 70MM
8 ACADEMY AWARDS NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, DIRECTOR
In 1940, during the early days of World War II, hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are trapped on the beach, surrounded by enemy forces. The story unfolds on land, sea and air—RAF Spitfires engage the enemy in the skies above the Channel as hundreds of small boats manned by both military and civilians mount a desperate rescue effort, risking their lives in a race against time to save even a fraction of their army. Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance head the cast of Christopher Nolan’s intense, horrific spectacle. (2017, 106 min, 70mm ‘Scope)

SUNDAY FEBRUARY 25 & MONDAY FEBRUARY 26 DOUBLE FEATURE

BPM (Beats Per Minute) Sun 7:00; Mon 2:00, 7:00
From Pedro Almodóvar’s ‘Best Films of 2017’:
“This is a poignant story about a group of Parisian ACT UP activists in the early 90s. In addition to a splendid script, [Robin] Campillo shows his great ability to direct ensemble scenes, they’re like out of a documentary. Extraordinary actors and iconic images, like a bloodstained Seine because of the death of young people caused by AIDS. There’s also a love story told with no melodrama or modesty, with death at the forefront. It surprised me this film didn’t make the cut into the shortlist for the Foreign Film category at the Oscars.” (2017, in French with English subtitles, 140 min, DCP ‘Scope)

+ TOM OF FINLAND Sun & Mon 4:35, 9:35
The proudly erotic drawings of artist Touko Laaksonen, known to the world as Tom of Finland, shaped the fantasies of a generation of gay men, influencing art and fashion before crossing over into the wider cultural consciousness. Dome Karukoski’s stirring biopic follows his life from the trenches of WWII and repressive Finnish society of the 1950s through his struggle to get his work published in California, where he and his art were finally embraced amid the sexual revolution of the 1970s. Tom’s story is one of love, courage and perseverance, mirroring the gay liberation movement for which his leather-clad studs served as a defiant emblem. (2017, in English and Finnish with English subtitles, 116 min, DCP ‘Scope)

 
     
   


TUESDAY FEBRUARY 27
CALL ME BY YOUR NAME (1:30), 4:15, 7:00, 9:30
4 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTOR (Timothée Chalamet)
17-year-old Elio (Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet) figures the summer of 1983 will offer the usual reading, swimming and playing music. The arrival of his father's new graduate assistant (Armie Hammer) throws Elio's summer idyll into disarray, and their quiet flirtation soon grows into something life-changing. James Ivory's adaptation of Andre Aciman's coming-of-age novel is brought to sensual cinematic life by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash), boosted by the dreamy songs of Sufjan Stevens and Michael Stuhlbarg's award-winning performance as Elio's loving, perceptive father. (2017, 132 min, DCP)
