Hearts Beat Loud, American Animals, RBG Week #6

On the heels of Father’s Day, we present HEARTS BEAT LOUD, a ‘feel good’ film about a father and daughter that critics are calling “refreshingly buoyant” and “deeply honest.” Also new this week is AMERICAN ANIMALS, a modern take on a heist film based on true events that incorporates the real-life subjects into the movie about them, breaking the 4th wall and then some. RBG returns for its 6th big week –  been a real audience pleaser and incredibly inspiring – don’t miss out! Finally, I, CLAUDE MONET – the last in our Exhibition on Screen series with two screenings, one each Sunday and Monday. And with our expanded schedule of earlier screenings every day of the week, you can see them all! Beat the heat in one of our 3, air-cooled theaters!

 

HEARTS BEAT LOUD takes place in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, where single dad and record store owner Frank (Nick Offerman) is preparing to send his hard-working daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to college. Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into a father-daughter performance duo. After their first song becomes an Internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery. Directed by Brett Haley (THE HERO). WATCH THE TRAILER.

“A sparkling gem with an indie-rock soul. Offerman turns in his best big-screen performance yet.” – Rafer Guzman, Newsday

 

AMERICAN ANIMALS was written and directed by Bart Layton (THE IMPOSTER). When Spencer is given a tour of his school’s incredibly valuable rare book collection and describes it all to friend Warren, it suddenly hits them—they could pull off one of the most audacious art thefts in recent history. Convinced they can get away with a daring heist from the university’s special collections library, they recruit two other friends. Suddenly, the dance of knowing what happens if they cross the line becomes all-consuming. The individuals who were involved in the heist portray themselves in the film and let the audience know what they were actually feeling at the time, a rare blending of a feature film and a documentary.  WATCH THE TRAILER.

“’American Animals’ twists and turns conventional heist movie formulas into a riotous blend, thereby delivering a wildly creative, tragicomic remix.” – Diane Carson, KDHX (St. Louis)

 

At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg – RBG – has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. This revelatory documentary takes an intimate look at her extraordinarily productive life – from her Brooklyn childhood to her current role as the great dissenter. Featuring interviews with Antonin Scalia, Gloria Steinem, Orrin Hatch, Bill Clinton, and others who attempt to shed light on this very private person. Directed by Betsy West and Julie Cohen who worked for years to get Ginsburg to consider the idea of this documentary. WATCH THE TRAILER.

“I left the theatre informed, inspired, and eager to go to sleep at a normal hour.” – Sheelah Kolhatkar, New Yorker

 

TWO SCREENINGS ONLY: The last of our EXHIBITION ON SCREEN series I, CLAUDE MONET, a documentary which reveals the heart and soul of arguably the world’s most loved artist. Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. However, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his Giverny garden, his humour, insight and love of life are revealed. Told through Monet’s own words and shot on location at the very spots he painted, the film features his most loved paintings in an unforgettable, immersive art experience. We recommend you buy your tickets in advance as these screenings have been very popular. SUNDAY, JUNE 24TH AT 12:30 PM AND MONDAY, JUNE 25TH AT 7:30 PM. Purchase your tickets online here.
