About the film:
Based on the best-selling novel by Laura Esquival, this internationally popular romantic fable from Mexico centers on a young woman who discovers that her cooking has magical effects. The tale’s heroine, Tita, is the youngest of three daughters in a traditional Mexican family. Bound by tradition to remain unmarried while caring for her aging mother, Tita nevertheless falls in love with a handsome young man named Pedro. Pedro returns her affection, but he cannot overcome her family’s disapproval, and he instead marries Tita’s elder sister. The lovestruck young woman is brutally disappointed, and her sadness has such force that it infects her cooking: all who eat it her feel her heartbreak with the same intensity.

6:00PM Lecture, Tasting and Screening: $35

PARTICLE FEVER
Particle Fever

2013, 99 MINS

WATCH TRAILER

Imagine being able to watch as Edison turned on the first light bulb, or as Franklin received his first jolt of electricity. For the first time, a film gives audiences a front row seat to a significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it happens.

Particle Fever follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, marking the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet, pushing the edge of human innovation. As they seek to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. But our heroes confront an even bigger challenge: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist?

Directed by Mark Levinson, a physicist turned filmmaker, from the inspiration and initiative of producer David Kaplan and masterfully edited by Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now, The English Patient), Particle Fever is a celebration of discovery, revealing the very human stories behind this epic machine

IN A LONELY PLACE

  PURCHASE TICKETS

JULY 23:  IN A LONELY PLACE (NR/1950/92 min.)
During a murder investigation, a bitter, brandy-soaked screenwriter (Humphrey Bogart) begins a turbulent romantic relationship with his courtyard neighbor—a “B” movie actress (Gloria Grahame).  Director Nicholas Ray and writer Andrew Solt concocted a haunting, melancholy commentary on Hollywood, punched across by Bogart and Grahame in absolutely breathtaking fashion.

JULY 30:  7 BRIDES FOR 7 BROTHERS (G/1955/102 min.)
When Oregon pioneer Adam Pontipee (Howard Keel) brings his new wife Milly (Jane Powell) to his backwoods home, his six ill-behaved younger brothers soon temper their “mountain men” ways and become ardent suitors.  Rousing, Oscar nominated musical, based on Stephen Vincent Benet’s “The Sobbin’ Women,” has an excellent score and energetic choreography (by Michael Kidd)—with the barn-raising sequence a marvelous stand-out.

AUGUST 6:  INTRUDER IN THE DUST (NR/1949/87 min.)
Mississippi, 1948.  A “stubborn and insufferable” black farmer is accused of killing a white man.  Two teenage boys and an elderly white woman quietly attempt to prove his innocence before the victim’s brother can rally a lynch mob.  Kudos to all involved with this splendid adaptation of William Faulkner’s tale—primarily a murder mystery with strong racial overtones.  Filmed on location in Oxford, Mississippi (Faulkner’s hometown).

AUGUST 13: THE TALL T (NR/1957/78 min.)
Genial rancher Pat Brennan (Randolph Scott) and the daughter of the richest man in Arizona (Maureen O’Sullivan) find themselves kidnapped by murderous outlaws led by ruthless Frank Usher (Richard Boone).  In order to survive the ordeal, Brennan attempts to undermine the unity of the gang.  Excellent script (by Burt Kennedy–adapting an Elmore Leonard short story), solid, economical direction (by Budd Boetticher) and formidable villainy made this Western worthy of addition to the prestigious National Film Registry (in the year 2000).

All films start at 8:00pm followed by with brief post film commentary/discussion

 

NORTHERN BORDERS
Directed by Jay Craven
Nothern Borders

(UNRATED) 2013, 108 MINS

PURCHASE TICKETS
WATCH TRAILER

Northern Borders tells the story of ten year-old Austen Kittredge, who is sent to live on his grandparents’ Kingdom County Vermont farm, where he has wild adventures and uncovers long-festering family secrets. It’s 1956 and Austen experiences rural Kingdom County as a place full of eccentric people including his stubborn grandparents, whose thorny marriage is known as the Forty Years War.  Initially feeling stuck in this fractured household, young Austen plans a quick exit but ends up stranded with no choice but to navigate and endure.  A humorous and sometimes startling coming-of-age story, Northern Borders evokes Vermont’s wildness, its sublime beauty, a haunted past, and an aura of enchantment. 

Northern Borders is directed by award-winning indie filmmaker Jay Craven and based on Howard Frank Mosher’s novel that was recently declared by The London Guardian as one of the “Top Ten Books Featuring Grandparents” (others included Charles Dickens’ “Great Expectations” and Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”).   The picture stars Bruce Dern (“Coming Home,” Hitchcock’s “Family Plot”) and Geneviève Bujold (“Anne of a Thousand Days, “King of Hearts”).  Dern was named Best Actor at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, for Alexander Payne’s new film, “Nebraska” which he shot immediately after completing “Northern Borders.”  Both Bujold and Dern have received Academy Award nominations. Northern Borders also stars Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick (“Moonrise Kingdom,” Before Midnight) and 2010 Tony Award nominee Jessica Hecht (“Sideways,” “Friends”).   Others in the supporting cast include John Shea, Jay O. Sanders, Mark Margolis, Tom Bodett, Rusty Dewees, and John Rothman.
