Thursday, October 5 at 1:00 (matinee) and 6:30 p.m.
"I fell hard for both Ms. Kazan and Mr. Nanjiani and The Big Sick, which tells a great story with waves of deep feeling and questions of identity and makes the whole thing feel like a breeze." - The New York Times, Manohla Dargis

Thursday, October 12 at 1:00 (matinee) and 7:00 p.m.

Thursday, October 19 at 1:00 (matinee) and 7:00 p.m.

Thursday, October 26 at 1:00 (matinee) and 7:00 p.m.

Thursday, November 2 at 1:00 (matinee) and 6:30 p.m.
"Throughout Lady Macbeth we see Pugh's eyes, full of possibility and optimism at the outset, gradually darken. Even her breathing changes. It's a wonderful performance in a very fine film." - Chicago Tribune, Michael Phillips

Thursday, November 9 at 1:00 (matinee only)
"Wonder Woman is smart, slick, and satisfying in all of the ways superhero films ought to be. How deliciously ironic that in a genre where the boys seem to have all the fun, a female hero and a female director are the ones to show the fellas how it’s done." - Entertainment Weekly, Chris Nashawaty
