“Stan & Ollie, the story of the bittersweet final bow of legendary duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, should move and delight fans of the beloved performers while enjoyably exposing the less initiated to these comedy giants.” Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times. Laurel and Hardy, the world’s most famous comedy duo, attempt to reignite their film careers as they embark on what becomes their swan song – a grueling theater tour of postwar Britain.

“The sorrow inherent in this tale would be unbearable without the film’s flashes of humor and performances by a cast of nonprofessionals that are moving beyond measure.” Peter Travers, 
Rolling Stone. After running away from his negligent parents, committing a violent crime, and being sentenced to five years in jail, a hardened, streetwise 12-year-old Lebanese boy sues his parents in protest of the life they have given him.

Never Look Away
March 1 and 3
Friday 3:30 and 8 pm; NO Saturday show time; Sunday 10:45 am, 2 pm, and 5:15 pm
 
“Some people will say Never Look Away is too long. . . . But much would be sacrificed, and there’s something very gratifying about watching an artist discover what he wants to say and how he wants to say it, even when cramped by the society in which he lives.” Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com. A sweeping romantic historical drama, Never Look Away follows 30 years in the life of a great artist – loosely based on Gerhard Richter, one of the 20th century’s most admired visual artists – played by Tom Schilling. The film goes from a childhood witnessing Nazi Germany to postwar East Berlin, where he falls in love with a young woman whose father is an ex-Nazi murderer in hiding.
R; 189 minutes
 
 
Cold War
March 8-10
Friday 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
 
“The end of the film, like so much that precedes it, is exquisite beyond words.” Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal. Set against the backdrop of the 1950s Cold War in Poland, two people of differing backgrounds and temperaments begin an almost impossible romance.
R; 88 minutes
