Let the Sunshine In
Friday 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
“Denis’s foray into the often-goofy world of the rom-com is at once a cold bath of realism and a bewitching portrait of the power of love – however fleeting that feeling may be.” David Sims, The Atlantic.
Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis (White Material). Isabelle (Binoche) is a divorced Parisian painter searching for another shot at love but refusing to settle for the parade of all-too-flawed men who drift in and out of her life. What reads like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed in the hands of master filmmaker Denis into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.
NR; 96 minutes; French with English subtitles
Friday 3:45 pm, 6 pm, and 8:15 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday 11:45 am, 2 pm, and 4:15 pm
“What warmth there is – and it is considerable – radiates from its three lead performers and a script (adapted from Naomi Alderman’s 2006 novel) that treats each of the central characters as neither hero nor villain.” Mark Jenkins, Washington Post.
A photographer (Rachel Weisz) returns to the community that shunned her decades earlier for her childhood attraction to a female friend (Rachel McAdams). Their reunion soon reignites their passion as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
R; 114 minutes
On Chesil Beach
June 29-July 1
Friday 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
“It’s a lyrical and rapturous film – a repressed passion play, funny, delicate and heartbreaking.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel and starring Saoirse Ronan, On Chesil Beachfocuses on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night.
R; 110 minutes
Friday 4 pm only; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday 11:45 am, 2 pm, and 4:15 pm

Godzilla [Gojira], 1954
July 6 & 7
Friday 8 pm, Saturday 2 pm
Godzilla (a.k.a. Gojira) is the roaring granddaddy of all monster movies. It’s also a remarkably humane and melancholy drama, made in Japan at a time when the country was reeling from nuclear attack and H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Its rampaging radioactive beast, the poignant embodiment of an entire population’s fears, became a beloved international icon of destruction, spawning almost thirty sequels. A thrilling, tactile spectacle that continues to be a cult phenomenon, the original, 1954 Japanese version will be shown with new high-definition digital restoration and uncompressed monaural soundtrack.
96 minutes; Japanese with English subtitles
Friday 4 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
“A touching yet wised-up father-daughter road movie that’s the best version of this sort of film you could imagine.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
The more Laura (Vera Farmiga) tries to set boundaries in her life, the faster those lines are crossed. Her 12-year-old son Henry (Lewis MacDougall) is in trouble again at school. Her own penchant for adopting stray dogs and cats threatens to overwhelm their Seattle home, and her phone keeps ringing with calls she refuses to pick up from her estranged father, Jack (Christopher Plummer). Maybe Jack will stick around. For Laura, the chance to accept, forgive, and heal will never go away.
R; 104 minutes
Friday 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
“A garish, gorgeous example of pop art at its finest, Yellow Submarine‘s reappearance should give a whole new generation a chance to discover the legends.” Caroline Westbrook, Empire.
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the psychedelic landscapes have been restored in 4k digital resolution. The animation was cleaned up by hand, frame by frame, rather than through automated digital software. The audio, which features Beatles songs like “A Day in the Life” and “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” was remixed in 5.1 stereo sound at Abbey Road Studios, where the Beatles recorded most of their work.
The music-loving inhabitants of Pepperland are under siege by the Blue Meanies, a nasty group of music-hating creatures. The Lord Mayor of Pepperland dispatches sailor Old Fred to Liverpool, England, where he is to recruit the help of the Beatles.

Heritage Auctions Announces Two-Year Sponsorship of Norman Rockwell Museum’s Four Freedoms Global Tour
Rockwell’s iconic paintings of President Franklin Roosevelt’s wartime pledge on display
DALLAS, Texas (May 23, 2018) – Heritage Auctions (HA.com), the largest auction house founded in the United States, announced this week it is has committed to a two-year major sponsorship of the Norman Rockwell Museum’s traveling exhibition Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms. It is the first comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s iconic 1943 depictions of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s wartime defense of humanity’s fundamental human rights.
Considered among the most indelible images in the history of American art, Rockwell’s Freedom of Speech, Freedom from Want, Freedom from Fear and Freedom of Worship will embark on a seven-city tour across the United States and to Normandy, France. The two-year, international exhibition opens May 25 in New York City at the New York Historical Society, with a companion presentation, Reimagining the Four Freedoms, on view concurrently across town at Roosevelt House.
“Sponsoring this groundbreaking, educational exhibition means supporting the ideals that people of all nations deserve universal human rights,” said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions. “Rockwell’s artistic interpretation of these rights sparked a national movement in America and abroad, inspiring generations for the last 75 years”
Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms includes a range of artwork in addition to Rockwell’s celebrated images of the Four Freedoms. These include paintings, illustrations, prints and more by both Rockwell and a broad range of his contemporaries, from J.C. Leyendecker and Mead Schaeffer to Arthur Szyk, Ben Shahn and Dorothea Lange, among others. The era is brought to life through a number of channels, including historical documents, photographs, videos, interactive digital displays, immersive settings and artifacts.
“The exhibition will show how Rockwell’s aspirational paintings shifted American attitudes towards engagement in World War II in defense of the free world, and, ultimately, helped to make the case for universal human rights,” said Norman Rockwell Museum Director Laurie Norton Moffatt. “In highlighting Rockwell’s and his generation’s response to the call for unity in support of these fundamental freedoms, the exhibition resonates powerfully with our own time.”
To date, the 2018 exhibition tour comprises The New-York Historical Society, New York City, New York, May 25-Sept. 2, 2018 and The Henry Ford, Dearborn, Michigan, Oct. 13, 2018-Jan. 13, 2019. The exhibition is on display at The George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum, Washington, D.C., Feb. 9-May 6, 2019, Mémorial de Caen, Normandy, France, June 4-Oct. 27, 2019. It returns to the United States through 2020, beginning at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, Dec. 15, 2019-March 22, 2020; and Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, in fall 2020.

Urban Reserve Residence
Urban Reserve Residence, situated at the entrance of its neighborhood of fifty sustainably designed contemporary homes in North Dallas, has been described by its architect, Billie Tsien, as having the plan of a private city condominium sited in the woods. It incorporates both urban and natural edges and exemplifies the stringent sustainable design standards set by the developer for this community, who with her husband is also the owner of the residence. Tsien and partner Tod Williams, whose many high-profile projects include the Obama Presidential Library, were engaged to design the residence after the owners learned more about their deep mutual respect for design when Billie and Tod spoke for The Dallas Architecture Forum.
The first level of the residence, which contains two guest rooms, is clad in sandblasted concrete block and anchors the house to the site. Guests are treated to views of the wooded ravine and are able to enjoy a koi pond and Japanese garden. A second-level terrace functions to entertain guests and provide the owners with an outdoor kitchen, lap pool, and connection to the tree canopy that surrounds them. An expansive metal screen wraps the south and east sides of the house, and shades the home and the exterior stair. The owners’ love of cooking drove the placement of the kitchen at the center of the third level. Living and dining rooms flow to the north, while the office, library and master bedroom are located to the south. The entire floor is linked by a circulation corridor that displays the owners’ dramatic contemporary art collection.
Interior Designer Joshua Rice collaborated with the owners to select furniture and design elements that complemented their relaxed but sophisticated lifestyle. A ‘Chat’ sofa by Carlo Colombo was chosen for its combination of comfort and design, and the dining table in custom fumed oak was designed by John Pawson. The living room lounge chairs are by Bassam + Fellows, and the custom leather headboard in the master was designed by Rice. Mario Bellini ‘Cab’ leather seating is used throughout the house to embody the combination of beautiful design with durability that exemplifies the owners’ way of living,

Rock Cliff Residence
Rock Cliff Residence was originally designed by renowned Dallas architect Harwood K. Smith, founder of the firm HKS. Built in 1952, Smith’s architecture was grounded in early modern Texas vernacular inspired by O’Neil Ford. Set on a spacious one acre site, the original one-story house was carefully located among lush topography with many floor-to-ceiling windows and a façade clad in historic St. Joe brick. The current owners purchased the property with a vision to maintain the heritage of the residence while carefully increasing its size. Renovation architect Josh Nimmo utilized a natural 30-foot slope in elevation to add a 1,500-square-foot bi-level wing that transitions seamlessly with the rest of house. Architectural elements already present in the original design, including vaulted ceilings, skylights, and steel rafters were incorporated into the addition. Original interior spaces were redone with white walls suitable for hanging art, serene white-oak floors, and white marble slabs in the baths. The original monumental carved-wood front door designed by Harwood K. Smith was kept, and a massive pivoting door in white oak was designed to separate the master bedroom wing from the living areas.
Interior designer Brant McFarlain was commissioned to create interiors reflecting a clean and refined aesthetic to defer to the owners’ major contemporary art collection that includes museum worthy paintings by Damien Hirst, Maya Hayuk, Joseph Havel, Richard Phillips, Adam Ball, Marc Quinn, Dan Rees, and Kai & Sunny. A custom white Hollywood Regency credenza and Schonbek crystal chandelier in the dining room are balanced with a sculptural dining table designed by Pritzker Prize-winner Norman Foster and classic Knoll Saarinen chairs covered in deep red mohair. Sleek mid-century modern furnishings throughout the home including Minotti chairs and a gondola sofa from Emily Summers Studio complement cherished family antiques. For the home’s exterior, Studio Outside designed a boardwalk that traverses the water and backyard steps to the garden below. A relaxing infinity pool can be viewed from glass window walls throughout the residence. Completing the landscape, a canopy of tall oaks shades the lushly terraced, rolling grounds where a soothing fountain bubbles from a modern Japanese-style courtyard.

Surrey Circle Residence
The Surrey Circle Residence has a strong connection between indoor spaces and outdoor living. The contemporary design includes large moveable glass walls that open the main living areas to an 800 SF screened living room. The screened living area, with a large stone fireplace, outdoor kitchen, dining area and radiant ceiling heaters allow this active family to enjoy the outdoors most of the year. The contemporary design uses a simple palette of exterior materials, brick, smooth cut limestone, stucco and Resysta siding accents. Throughout the landscape Silvermist stone was used for the hardscape material, gravel and cobble are in the entry courtyard and a boulder wall encompasses the motor and entry courtyard. An ipe’ wood deck runs along one side of the pool, and a single allee’ elm tree emerges through the deck. An organic path of bluestone slabs surround the remainder of the pool and wood deck and is carried through the spa at the end of the pool. The site consists of a landscape palette of only drought tolerant, low maintenance plants; no grass was used for this sustainably designed project.
Large walls of glass allow the interiors to be washed with natural light and provide beautiful views from the second floor playroom and deck. To compliment the expanse of windows and light, earth and water were two primary elements driving the interior design and selection of materials and colors – wood, concrete, steel and stone secure this natural palette. The neutral furnishings add warmth with a large splash of black, blue and white in the custom family room rugs. One of the most impressive features is the family room fireplace which incorporates a single horizontal cold rolled steel slab that spans the full width of the room. A significant part of the success of Surrey Circle was a result of the collaboration between the Bernbaum / Magadini architects, designer Robyn Menter and landscape architect David Hocker throughout the design process. This allowed for fluid teamwork with the contractor during construction and a cohesive design that complimented the extraordinary architecture.

About the Dallas Architecture Forum
The Dallas Architecture Forum is a not-for-profit civic organization that brings leading architectural thought leaders from around the world to speak in Dallas and also fosters important local dialogue about the major issues impacting our urban environment. The Forum was founded in 1996 by some of Dallas’ leading architects, business, cultural and civic leaders, and it continues to benefit from active support and guidance from these citizens. The Forum fulfills its mission of providing a continuing and challenging public discourse on architecture and urban design in – and for – the Dallas area. The Dallas Architecture Forum’s members include architects, design professionals, students and educators, and a broad range of civic-minded individuals and companies intent to improve the urban environment in North Texas. The Forum has been recognized nationally with an AIA Collaboration Achievement Award for its strategic partnerships with other organizations focused on architecture, urban planning and the arts. For more information on the Forum, visit www.DallasArchitectureForum.
Among the over 130 speakers who have addressed the Forum’s Lecture Series are Shigeru Ban, Brad Cloepfil, Diller + Scofidio, Peter Eisenman, Michael Graves, Daniel Libeskind, Thomas Phifer, Rafael Vinoly, Juhani Pallasmaa, AIA Gold Medal Winner Peter Bohlin, and regional architects David Lake and Ted Flato. Pritzker Prize winners speaking to the Forum have been Kazuyo Sejima, Rafael Moneo, Thom Mayne, Rem Koolhaas and Norman Foster (the latter two in collaboration with the ATT Performing Arts Center). Other speakers for the Forum have been leading designers Calvin Tsao, Andrée Putman, and Karim Rashid; landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh; and National Trust President Emeritus Richard Moe. Important critics, authors and patrons who have spoken to the Forum include Emily Pulitzer, Terence Riley, Pulitzer Prize winners Robert Campbell and Blair Kamin, Aaron Betsky, and the late David Dillon.
The Forum organizes and presents an annual series of Panels—local, informal, open, and offered free of charge as a public service to the community—led by a moderator who brings a subject of local importance along with comments by participating panelists. Moderators and Panelists have also come from both other Texas cities as well as from national institutions that were connected with particular Panel subjects. Panels offer attendees the opportunity to participate in creating discourse. Important topics addressed in Panels in recent years include: “Thoughts on the Dallas Comprehensive Plan”; “The Kimbell Expansion: A Discussion”; “Filling Out the Dallas Arts District”; and “Re-envisioning the Trinity”.
