Winter Film Series: “State of the Union”
4:00 pm
01-20-18

Directed by the great Frank (It Happened One Night, You Can’t Take it With You, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington) Capra, State of the Union is another of Capra’s celebrations of the triumph of goodness over evil, of justice over deceit, and the resounding rightness of the American political system. The film’s extra dividend are its stars, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. He’s an industrialist who ends up running for President and she’s the estranged wife who nonetheless comes to his aid. Literate, entertaining, and emphatically relevant.

The suggested donation is $5 per person.

Winter Film Series: “Z”
4:00 pm
02-03-18

Set in Greece in the 1960s and based on an actual event involving political assassination and a scandalous network of corruption, this fast-paced, breathlessly exciting melodrama directed by the deeply political Costas-Gavros and starring his favorite, leading man, Yves Montand, has to be one of the most notable political films ever made. Also present are Jean-Louis Trintignant and Irene Papas, among others. Promise — it will leave you on the edge of your seat.

The suggested donation is $5 per person.

Winter Film Series: “All The King’s Men”
4:00 pm
02-24-18

Based on the Pulitzer-Prize winning novel by Robert Penn Warren, the film focuses on the rise and of course, fall, of a southern demagogue inspired by the notorious Huey Long. It’s an exciting political drama and a brilliantly acted one, winning Academy Awards for its stars, Broderick Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge, and for the film itself. As critic Paul Kael noted at the time of its release, “It just might make you feel better about the president you’ve got.”

The suggested donation is $5 per person.

Winter Film Series: “A Face in the Crowd”
4:00 pm
03-10-18

An early work of On the Waterfront‘s brilliant director, Elia Kazan, and its gifted writer, Budd Shullberg, the film focuses on a hillbilly guitarist who becomes a stunningly successful TV star. Featuring among others Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal, Walter Matthau, and Anthony Franciosa, as well as media personalities like Water Winchell, Mike Wallace, and Bennet Cerf who appear as themselves, the concern is with the terrifying political potential of American mass media. Once again, emphatically relevant.

The suggested donation is $5 per person.

Winter Film Series: “Allegro Non Troppo”
4:00 pm
03-24-18

In a riot of color and music, master animator Bruno Bozzetto offers his irreverent tribute to Disney’s Fantasia. Transcending parody, this erotic, satiric, and delirious animated feature represents Bozzetto’s vision of the world. In six distinct episodes, fantastic cartoon creatures march, slither and bounce to the classical rhythms of Debussy, Dvorak, Ravel, Sibelius, Vivaldi, and Stravinsky. Maurizio Nichetti stars in the equally wild live-action sequences that introduce each piece.

The suggested donation is $5 per person.
