CINEMA SERIES - Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Jan 19 2019 - 7:30pm Can You Ever Forgive Me?Can You Ever Forgive Me?

In CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?, Melissa McCarthy stars as Lee Israel, the best-selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover) who made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee found herself unable to get published because she had fallen out of step with the marketplace, she turned her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant).

“By the movie’s too-quick end, all you want is to hang out with these two just a little bit longer...” - Seattle Times.

“Note-perfect in its portrayal of two people at the end of their rope who have no business being friends, or getting away with as much as they do, or having such a good time along the way.” - Chicago Reader.

Rated R for language including some sexual references, and brief drug use, 106 mins.

CINEMA SERIES - Beautiful Boy

Jan 26 2019 - 7:30pm Beautiful BoyBeautiful Boy

Based on the best-selling pair of memoirs “Beautiful Boy” by David Sheff and “Tweak” by his son, Nic. Teenager Nicolas Sheff (Timothée Chalamet) seems to have it all -- good grades, editor of the school newspaper, actor, artist and athlete. When Nic’s addiction to meth threatens to destroy him, his desperate father (Steve Carell) does whatever he can to save his son and his family.

“Every last thing the movie shows us about addiction, and the effect it can have upon those who are trying to save an addict from himself, is entirely authentic.” - Variety.

“Parents will feel heard by this movie in a way that few other films have tried. Everyone else should go for Chalamet, who's a rocket taking off. You want to be able to say you were there when it happened.” - Time Out.

Rated R for drug content throughout, language, and brief sexual material, 120 mins.
