The Skeleton Twins
(2014; 93 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, December 18 at 7:00 p.m.
"This is a smart movie about complicated people in search of something approaching inner peace." - Chicago Sun-Times
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
(2014; 130 minutes; Rated PG-13)
Thursday, January 8 at 6:30 p.m.
"More than a bunch of occasionally thrilling action sequences, emotional gut punches and throwaway jokes arranged in predictable sequence. (Dawn) is technically impressive and viscerally exciting, for sure, but it also gives you a lot to think, and even to care, about." - The New York Times
(2014; 131 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, January 15 at 6:30 p.m.
"The Equalizer features some gruesomely creative violence, but it’s equally memorable for the small, gritty moments set in that diner, or on the rough-and-tumble streets of Boston." - Chicago Sun-Times
Love Is Strange
(2014; 94 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, January 22 at 7:00 p.m.
"One of those lovely little movies that starts out being about a handful of people and ends up being about all of us." - Boston Globe
(2014; 106 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, January 29 at 7:00 p.m.
"Like Gandolfini, the deep Brooklyn of The Drop is formidable, bona fide and memorable. " - New York Daily News
Get On Up
(2014; 139 minutes; Rated PG-13)
Thursday, February 5 at 6:30 p.m.
"One funk-tastic musical biopic." - New York Post
Dear White People
(2014; 108 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, February 12 at 7:00 p.m.
"You want to see this movie, and you will want to talk about it afterward, even if the conversation feels a little awkward. If it doesn’t, you’re doing it wrong. There is great enjoyment to be found here, and very little comfort." - New York Times
(2014; 89 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, February 19 at 7:00 p.m.
"The best comic-book movie in a long time, though based on no comic, Lucy is a film that mates classic Besson with Quentin Tarantino in a go at the mystical, world-solving vision found in Stanley Kubrick’s "2001: A Space Odyssey" and Terrence Malick’s "The Tree of Life."" - Austin Chronicle
