The Bookshop

“Its subversive undercurrent, embodied in fine performances by Emily Mortimer and Bill Nighy, is what makes it really interesting.” Jonathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter.
England, 1959. A free-spirited widow (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book-loving widower (Bill Nighy).

Pick of the Litter
September 21-23
Friday 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
Pick of the Litter is earnest and heartwarming, filled with adorable camera-licking and tight closeups of beseeching doggy eyes.” Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times.
Meet Patriot, Potomac, Primrose, Poppet, and Phil — five spirited puppies who, from the moment they’re born, begin an incredible journey to become guide dogs for the blind. It’s a rigorous two-year process that will take the pups from the care of selfless foster volunteers to specialized trainers to, if they make the cut, a lifelong human companion.
NR; 81 minutes
September 28-30
Friday 3:45 pm, 6 pm, and 8:15 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday 11:45 am, 2 pm, and 4:15 pm
“It’s a tour de force of oversized charm and verve, a living ballad of song-writer-as-ramblin’-man (and almost compulsive screw-up).” Joe Gross, Austin American-Statesman.
Ethan Hawke directs this reimagining of the life and times of Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas Outlaw music movement.
NR; 127 minutes
Kusama – Infinity
October 5-7
Friday 4 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
Kusama – Infinity explores artist Yayoi Kusama’s journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America during the 1960s (where she rivaled Andy Warhol for press attention) and concludes with the international fame she has finally achieved within the art world.
NR; 85 minutes
Juliet, Naked
October 12-14
Friday 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
Juliet, Naked is a gently winning romantic comedy, all keyed to a delightful note of indie-rock obsession. . . . It’s a winsome screwball love story that grows on you and takes you somewhere charming.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
Annie (Rose Byrne) is stuck in a long-term relationship with Duncan (Chris O’Dowd) — an obsessive fan of obscure rocker Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke). When the acoustic demo of Tucker’s hit record from 25 years ago surfaces, its release leads to a life-changing encounter with the elusive rocker himself. Based on the novel by Nick Hornby, Juliet, Naked is a comic account of life’s second chances.
R; 105 minutes

Schedule and titles to be announced.
The Happy Prince
October 26-28
Friday 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
“For while this may be a film about how Wilde’s life — and genius — were cruelly curtailed by the stigma of his homosexuality, it’s also about lives lived, enduring friendships and the relentless passing of time.” Matthew Bond, The Mail.
Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, and Emily Watson star in the untold story of the last days of Oscar Wilde, a man who observed his own failure with ironic distance and regarded the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor.
R; 105 minutes
