Castle in the Sky
The first film created by Studio Ghibli remains one of their best: shadows of airships dance atop clouds, rocks in a cavern speak through a series of prismatic lights, and gentle, long-armed giant robots tend to the garden of a mythic city in the sky. These astonishing events are linked by the magical crystal necklace worn by an orphaned girl on a quest to find the fabled floating castle.
Hayao Miyazaki. 1986. 124 m. PG. Japan, Japanese with subtitles. GKids.2:25 PM 4:55 PM 7:30 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)
4 Academy Award Nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Actress in a Leading Role
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.
Benh Zeitlin. 2012. 91 m. PG-13. US. Fox Searchlight.2:30 PM 5:00 PM 10:05 PM
The Queen of Versailles
Opulence and ignorance are centerstage in The Queen of Versailles, when a billionaire business man and his trophy wife, in the process of building their 90,000 sq.ft. home are hit by the financial crisis of 2008. Lauren Greenfield's documentary reveals a lifestyle of astounding excess and overweening entitlement in this terrific documentary that the NY Times says, "captures the tone of the times with a clear, surprisingly compassionate eye."
Lauren Greenfield. 2012. 100 m. PG. USA. Magnolia Pictures.2:40 PM 7:10 PM 9:20 PM
Shine a Light
Scorsese and the Stones join forces as the band performs at NYC’s intimate Beacon Theater—and it’s exhilarating. Having listened to the band so much that the music was ingrained in him, Scorsese assembled a great group of cinematographers who were unerringly in the right place at the right time to capture every element of the show. “It is one of the most engaged documentaries you could imagine,” says Rolling Stone.
Martin Scorsese. 2008. 122 m. PG-13. US. Paramount/Vantage.10:00 PM
