Stories We Tell
"Stories We Tell is an affecting documentary tale about a mother and wife who ached in many of the familiar ways, but didn’t always follow the typical female playbook, which also gives her life the resonance of a mystery that’s too good to spoil here." (Manohla Dargis, NY Times)
Stories We Tell is an inspired, genre-twisting new film from Sarah Polley that explores the elusive nature of truth and memory. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets kept by a family of storytellers.
Sarah Polley. 2013. 108 m. PG-13. Canada. Roadside Attractions .2:10 PM 5:10 PM 7:30 PM
"Kon-Tiki is a robust adventure yarn and a highly entertaining film."(Leonard Maltin)
Kon-Tiki is a heartwarming and inspirational adventure film about Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl who dared to cross the Pacific Ocean in a balsa wood raft to prove that South Americans could have settled Polynesia in pre-Columbian times. With a five man crew and nothing but the wind and current to guide them, these young men set out on a 101 day-long journey that ultimately rekindled the world's interest in exploration and adventure.
Joachim Rønning/Espen Sandberg. 2013. 119 m. PG-13. Norway. The Weinstein Company.2:20 PM 4:45 PM 9:50 PM
Journey to Italy (Viaggio in Italia)
Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders star as a married couple who, visiting Naples, realize that they no longer have much to say to each other. He visits friends, and she haunts museums, fascinated by the ruins. Subtle, small moments ultimately build, gaining emotional power, and powerfully drawing the viewer in. François Truffaut called Journey to Italy “the first modern film.” NEWLY RESTORED!
Roberto Rossellini. 1954. 97 m. NR. France/Italy. Janus Films.2:30 PM 5:00 PM 7:10 PM
“Funny, touching, and cliff-hangingly suspenseful.” (Daily Telegraph)
It’s 1974 and the corridors of government ring with the sounds of infighting and backbiting as Britain’s political parties battle to change the future of the nation—whatever it takes. Biting and energetic, This House, directed by James Graham, has enjoyed two sell-out runs at the National Theatre.
Run time is approximately 180 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.
Nicholas Hytner. 2013. NR. UK. BYexperience.7:00 PM
This evening is a rebroadcast and will not be transmitted live.

Death Rides a Horse
Bill (John Phillip Law), who seeks revenge on the gang that killed his parents, forms an unlikely alliance with a veteran gunslinger (Lee Van Cleef), who’s out to get his former partners for double-crossing him and putting him in prison—and the two pull out their six-shooters and proceed to shoot everything in sight. A seminal spaghetti western with a thrilling Ennio Morricone score.
Giulio Petroni. 1969. 114 m. R. Italy, Italian with subtitles. Park Circus.9:45 PM
