The Imitation Game

New Releases

"One of the year's finest films; I could happily watch The Imitation Game again." (Leonard Maltin)

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst, and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of 'gross indecency,' little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who, under nail-biting pressure, helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives.

Jan. 6, 7:15 Q&A Science on Screen event w/computer scientist and Turing Award recipient Leslie Valiant. His work has ranged over several areas of theoretical computer science, particularly complexity theory, learning, and parallel computation.

Foxcatcher

New Releases

"...[A]n altogether extraordinary film about the psychopathology of the ties that bind..." (Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor)

A psychological drama directed by Bennett Miller and starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, and Sienna Miller. Based on actual events, the film tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) when he is invited by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train. This gripping tale is sure to be an awards season favorite.
