Show Times

The Judge
(2014; 142 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, February 26 at 6:30 p.m.
"Equal parts courtroom drama, legal thriller and family saga, it’s also a synchronized duet for two terrific actors at the top of their craft that left me stunned." - New York Observer

Whiplash
(2014; 107 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, March 5 at 7:00 p.m., matinee at 1:00 p.m.
"More "Full Metal Jacket" than "Dead Poet’s Society," the film is an epic battle of wills between two fanatical artists, one doing everything in his power to painfully make a master out of the other. " - The A.V. Club

Foxcatcher
(2014; 129 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, March 12 at 6:45 p.m., matinee at 1:00 p.m.
"The hypnotic and haunting Foxcatcher can prove its worth as one of the year's very best films. Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo give the performances of their lives." - Rolling Stone

The Theory of Everything
(2014; 123 minutes; Rated PG-13)
Thursday, March 19 at 6:45 p.m.
"The Theory of Everything, referring to Hawking's dream of finding an equation to explain all existence, is riveting science, emotional provocation and one-of-a-kind love story all rolled into one triumphant film." - Rolling Stone

Birdman
(2014; 119 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, March 26 at 6:45 p.m., matinee at 1:00 p.m.
"Birdman is everything you want movies to be: vital, challenging, intellectually alive, visually stunning, emotionally affecting. And welcome back to the big time, Mr. Keaton; you have been sorely missed." - Empire

Wild
(2014; 115 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, April 2 at 6:45 p.m., matinee at 1:00 p.m.
"In its thrilling disregard for the conventions of commercial cinematic storytelling, Wild reveals what some of us have long suspected: that plot is the enemy of truth, and that images and emotions can carry meaning more effectively than neatly packaged scenes or carefully scripted character arcs." - The New York Times
