Méliès and Company: Sleight-of-Hand from Stage to Screen
Magician Benjamin Levy has awed audiences around the world with his dazzling shows and we could have no better guide for this exciting exploration of magic and the movies. Levy will explain how stage magicians of the late Victorian era paved the way for the beginnings of movie magic with their special effects. He’ll show us A Trip to the Moon by the extraordinary innovator Georges Méliès, along with other early short films. Levy promises to demonstrate some jaw-dropping magic of his own, too!
Georges Méliès. 85 m. .12:00 PM
To Rome with Love
"One of the most delightful things about To Rome With Love is how casually it blends the plausible and the surreal, and how unabashedly it revels in pure silliness." (A.O. Scott, NY Times)
With a sumptuously photographed Rome as the backdrop, this charming comedic omnibus starring Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, and Penelope Cruz is sure to please.
Woody Allen. 2012. 102 m. R. US/Spain/Italy, English/Italian. Sony Pictures Classics.12:05 PM 2:35 PM 5:00 PM 7:25 PM
Beasts of the Southern Wild
"A stunning debut that finds its dandelion-haired heroine fighting rising tides and fantastic creatures in a mythic battle against modernity." (Peter Debruge, Variety)

Winner of the Caméra d'Or award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Beasts of the Southern Wild was one of the most anticipated indie films of 2012. From first-time filmmaker Benh Zeitlin, the film tells the story of an extraordinarily imaginative six-year-old girl who when faced with unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions must learn to survive on her own.
