Mike Leigh, 1999, UK

160 minutes

Creative partnerships are a kind of marriage; artistic labor is very much like giving birth.

“....It dawned on me during the 1980s that it would be a wheeze to do a film about Gilbert and Sullivan that would subvert the snobbery by dealing with them in a realistic way, by looking at the tension between reality and artifice . . . “ —Mike Leigh


The Night of the Hunter

Charles Laughton, 1955, USA

92 minutes

A true American Gothic. The only film directed by actor Charles Laughton. 


“Graced by images of eerie beauty and a sneaky sense of humor, this ethereal, expressionistic American classic—also featuring the contributions of actress Lillian Gish and writer James Agee—is cinema’s most eccentric rendering of the battle between good and evil.” —The Criterion Collection


Get Out

Jordan Peele, 2017, USA

104 minutes


Go see Jordan Peele’s second film, Us, at the multiplex and then join us to watch, or re-watch, his first film. You may leave seeing the world through new eyes . . .

“Racism is always going to be present in this country. Racism is not a one-sided dynamic. This movie is a way to promote that conversation in a way that’s fun. I feel like discussion, no matter how difficult it is, is key.” —Jordan Peel


. . . and a . . . Mystery Film!

You have to show up to learn what it is . . .

(166 minutes)

The director of this film, a veteran, reenlisted in the middle of the same war in order to shoot footage for this “fiction” film. Soldiers on leave acted in the film, playing ghosts of dead soldiers, and then returned to the front, where most of them died. This film is literally haunted, and haunting.
