The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
**Encore Presentation** A richly theatrical exploration of Mark Haddon’s touching and bleakly humorous best-selling novel about an autistic teenager at the center of a mystery. It all starts when he finds a dog that's been speared with a garden fork. Adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens.

Searching for Sugar Man
"An electrifying illustration of music's power to inspire and change lives on both sides of the footlights."
Academy Award Nominee for Documentary Feature
The greatest '70s rock icon that you've never heard of, Rodriguez's albums were critically well-received, but bombed on the U.S. charts. While he faded into obscurity in the States, his legend grew in South Africa, where a bootleg copy of his album made it to the airwaves and quickly became a phenomenal success. The film follows two of Rodriguez's biggest fans, who travel to the U.S. in hopes of finding out what happened to the singer whose anti-establishment message connected with them during the dark days of apartheid. Searching for Sugar Man is a story of hope, inspiration, and the resonating power of music.

"Jarecki, it's clear, has the talent to make shrewdly pleasurable Hollywood movies. Here's hoping Arbitrage is the first of many." (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly)
Arbitrage is a taut and alluring Wall Street thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. Richard Gere's performance as a businessman forced to confront the limits of his own moral duplicity is already garnering awards buzz. From writer Nicholas Jarecki, making his feature directorial debut, Arbitrage also stars Susan Sarandon and Brit Marling (Another Earth).
Nicholas Jarecki. 2012. 100 m. R. US/Poland. Roadside Attractions .12:15 PM 3:15 PM 5:25 PM 7:35 PM 9:45 PM
Iím Carolyn Parker: The Good, the Mad and the Beautiful
