Our Next Attraction
Starts FRIDAY MAY 1
Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.
Stars: Darío Grandinetti, María Marull, Mónica Villa
Director: Damián Szifrón
Genres: Comedy – Drama -Thriller
Rated R for violence, language and brief sexuality
Language: Spanish with English sub-titles
Runtime: 122 min

Silent Film Schedule
THE SILENT FILMS ARE PRESENTED WITH LIVE MUSIC BY MuZette
Tom & Laurie Reese have developed live original musical scores written especially for each film. The music follows the dynamics of each film, and incorporates jazz improvisation along with structured compositional ideas. Performed live, viewing the film along with the audience, each performance is unique within the bounds of the movies highlights.
GOLD RUSH (1925)
SUNDAY MAY 3
This silent classic has many strong points – it has a lot of humor, interesting characters, a good story and good settings. It’s the kind of film that shows how much a master film-maker can communicate in a silent movie. It overdoes the sentimentality on occasion, but other than that it’s a fine film.
Chaplin himself plays the ‘Lone Prospector’, and he is joined by several other interesting characters in a frozen north setting that sets up some good adventures and drama. There are some memorable scenes in the prospectors’ rickety cabins, plus some other good material.
Stars: Charles Chaplin, Mark Swain, Tom Murray
Director: Charles Chaplin
