Magic in the Moonlight

New Releases

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth), a grouchy Englishman with an inflated ego and an aversion to phony spiritualists' claims. On a mission to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Emma Stone), Stanley travels to the Côte d'Azur mansion of the Catledge family where Sophie is staying with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden) and presents himself as a benign businessman. What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word.

Boyhood

New Releases

"... [I]t's almost Joycean in its appreciation of the scruffy magic of everyday life." (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly)


Filmed over 12 years, Richard Linklater's latest is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane). Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood is a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and impossible to watch without thinking about one's own journey through life.

Duck Soup

Special Events

It’s a free-for-all when the dictator of the country of Fredonia, Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho), eager to declare war on neighboring Sylvania, destroys all hopes for diplomacy. Duck Soup is widely considered the Marx Brothers’ best work, and not only for its spectacular musical spoofs and brilliantly edited final battle scene. Chico and Harpo are hilarious as spies, and Groucho and Harpo’s pantomime as mirror images may be the most graceful portrayal of identity crisis in the history of cinema.

Art and Craft

Frameworks: Art on Film

PREVIEW! Mark Landis has been called one of the most prolific art forgers in US history. His impressive body of work spans thirty years, covering multiple styles and periods. And while the copies could fetch impressive sums on the open market, Landis chooses to donate his fakes to museums across the country. When Matthew Leininger, a tenacious registrar in Cincinnati, discovers the ruse and organizes an exhibition of the work, Landis must confront his legacy and a chorus of museum professionals clamoring for him to stop. Art and Craft starts out as an art caper and evolves into an unflinching exploration of life with mental illness and the universal need for community, appreciation, and purpose.
