Let the Sunshine In
June 15-17
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.

June 22-24
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.

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.

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
July 13-15
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
Yellow Submarine
July 20-22
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.
