CINEMA SERIES - The Beatles - Yellow Submarine

Jul 14 2018 - 7:30pm Yellow SubmarineYellow Submarine

Fully restored for its 50th Anniversary, YELLOW SUBMARINE is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, propelled by Beatles songs, including “Eleanor Rigby,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds,” “All You Need Is Love,” and “It’s All Too Much.” When the film debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognized as a landmark achievement, revolutionizing a genre by integrating the freestyle approach of the era with innovative animation techniques.

“For all of its groovy fun, YELLOW SUBMARINE offers a subliminal reminder that the power of love never goes out of fashion.” - Film Threat.

“This charming fable chronicling the Beatles' battles to save Pepperland from the Blue Meanies is one of the best testaments ever to the redeeming value of good music.” - Washington Post.

“The blend of stunning music and innovative visuals makes this a true festival of the senses.” - Total Film.

Rated G, 90 mins.

“BOOK CLUB is an airy dinner conversation set before a spectacular backdrop, a sure-fire bet to be the breeziest two hours you spend in the theater this summer.” - The Atlantic.

At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now.

“It’s a fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing documentary that makes one heck of a play to remind people of Ginsburg’s vitality and importance, now more than ever.” - Indiewire.

“Make no mistake about it, this woman is a force, and the great service this clear-eyed and admiring documentary provides is to emphasize not just Ginsburg's work on the court but how extraordinarily influential she was before she even got there.” - LA Times.

Rated PG for some thematic elements and language, 96 mins.
