Dalai Lama Double Feature
(NR)   200  minutes
Tuesday November 4th at:
6:30


Join us for a special DOUBLE FEATURE screening of Dalai Lama Awakening & Dalai Lama Compassion In Action with a Q&A with director Khashyar Darvich to follow!

Can a film inspire an “awakening” within its filmmaker, as well as with audiences around the world?

Dalai Lama Awakening, which features the Dalai Lama and is narrated by actor Harrison Ford, is Director Khashyar Darvich’s newest documentary film, which audiences are already calling “a shift in consciousness,” “transformational” and “preverbal.”

Compassion in Action Film - Open your heart, be the change, & change the world. This powerful documentary, featuring the wisdom of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, received a very enthusiastic response during the recent sneak preview screenings.One audience member in London expressed at the Q&A that he was so moved, that he could not speak and needed time to process and assimilate what he saw and experienced.

Tickets cost $18 each at the door

 

Dear White People
(PG13)   115  minutes
10/31 - 11/5: 1:00   3:55   7:00   9:25



Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. The film follows four black students at Winchester University, where the unexpected election of activist Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) as head of a traditionally black residence hall sets up a college campus culture war that challenges conventional notions of what it means to be black. While Sam leverages her notoriety as host of the provocative and polarizing radio show "Dear White People" to try to prevent the college from diversifying Armstrong Parker House, outgoing head-of-house Troy (Brandon P. Bell) defies his father's lofty expectations by applying to join the staff of Pastiche, the college's influential humor magazine. Lionel (Tyler James Williams), an Afro-sporting sci-fi geek, is recruited by the otherwise all-white student newspaper to go undercover and write about black culture—a subject he knows little about—while the aggressively assimilated Coco (Teyonah Parris) tries to use the controversy on campus to carve out a career in reality TV. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Dear White People explores racial identity in "post-racial" America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.

MPAA Rating: R for language, sexual content and drug use

The singular Bill Murray stars in the comical story of a young boy who develops an unusual friendship with the cantankerous old guy next door. Maggie (Melissa McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year-old son, Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Naomi Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine—the race track, a strip club and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart. Written and directed by Theodore Melfi.

Pride is an inspirational comedy based on a true story about finding hope and friendship where you least expect it.
