            Wiener-Dog

            Welcome to the doghouse: the latest hilariously biting comedy from Todd Solondz is a twisted Lassie for misanthropes. It follows the wayward adventures of a dachshund who passes from oddball owner to oddball owner—including the world’s worst mom, a beleaguered screenwriter, and the grownup incarnation of Welcome to the Dollhouse’s Dawn Wiener—whose radically dysfunctional lives are all impacted by the pooch. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, and Zosia Mamet, Wiener-Dog is a tragically funny, wondrously warped look at the absurdity of life (and death) from one of contemporary cinema’s most fearless and unique voices. Co-presented with Amazon Studios.   Greta Gerwig, Zosia Mamet, Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, & Kieran Culkin.  DIRECTOR: Todd Solondz.

            The Lobster What Animal Would You be?

            Colin Farrell stars as David, a man who has just been dumped by his wife. To make matters worse, David lives in a society where single people have 45 days to find true love, or else they are turned into the animal of their choice and released into the woods. David is kept at the mysterious hotel while he searches for a new partner, and after several romantic misadventures decides to make a daring escape to abandon this world. He ultimately joins up with a rebel faction known as The Loners, a group founded on a complete rejection of romance. But once there David meets an enigmatic stranger (Rachel Weisz) who stirs up unexpected and strong feelings within him... At once a full immersion into a strange and surreal world, and a witty and clever reflection of our own society, THE LOBSTER is a thrillingly audacious vision fully brought to life by Lanthimos and his terrific cast. The filmmaker displays a completely singular style and mastery of tone, finding the perfect balance between sharp-edged satire and romantic fable that entertains its audience while also leaving them with lots to reflect on long after the credits have rolled.

                The world premiere of the movie "The Return of Brute Force"

                The movie was made by Independent film director Brett Davey who took a different approach when planning his latest movie. He asked his sons Timothy and Van — aged 9 and 12 — to star in the movie, help develop the story, and recruit their friends as actors. The result is “The Return of Brute Force”, Davey’s fifth feature film.

                "The kids at Scarpa Elementary School are faced with two big problems: a group of bullies called “Brute Force” are terrorizing the student population and an evil corporation known as Paul’s Mart wants to buy the school and turn it into a charter school that teaches the kids nothing but retail skills.

                Paul Swilton, the owner of Paul’s Mart, is a graduate of Scarpa Elementary School and founded the original Brute Force more than 30 years ago. He will use bribery, extortion, and a good old fashioned punch in the nose to get his way! Can the kids stop his twisted plan and defeat the new Brute Force group? They will definitely try!

                Tickets are $10 for adults; $5 for kids!
