S
ummer, 1945.  A one-armed stranger (Spencer Tracy) arrives at a tiny desert community, wishing to locate a Japanese farmer, and is met with uniform hostility.  Within hours, threats and harassment put the stranger in serious jeopardy.  Tense, suspenseful drama delivers a potent message on civic complacency, absolutely menacing performances by Robert Ryan, Ernest Borgnine and Lee Marvin, superb CinemaScope photography.
August 27: LILI (NR/1953/81 min.)
16 year old orphan Lili Daurier (Leslie Caron) needs work and friends and finds both in a travelling carnival.  Initially attracted to Marco the Magician (Jean-Pierre Aumont), Lili soon develops a serious affection for embittered puppeteer Paul Berthalet (Mel Ferrer).  Often mistaken for a children’s story, LILI is sophisticated adult storytelling, with immensely appealing performances and an Oscar-winning score by Bronislau Kaper.September 3: WESTWARD THE WOMEN (NR/1951/116 min.)
Experienced trail guide Buck Wyatt (Robert Taylor) leads a wagon train containing 150 women bound for California to meet mail-order husbands.  Rugged action prevails as these female pioneers persevere under realistic hardships and harrowing situations.  Stark black and white photography (filmed in Kanab, Utah), believable characterizations and terrific directorial touches (by William Wellman) enhance this memorable journey.

(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.Join us for a special screening with Director, Jay Craven in the Lincoln Financial Theater Thursday August 21.

Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) survives a drag race in a rural Kansas town, then takes a job as a church organist in Salt Lake City. En route, she becomes haunted by a bizarre apparition that compels her to an abandoned lakeside pavilion and a mysteriously abandoned carnival filled with the souls of the dead.The Andrew Alden Ensemble will accompany this cult-classic with their traditional instrumentation of electric guitar, drum set, synthesizer, piano, violin and viola, along with the techniques of live circuit bending and analog tape looping to create experimental sound effects that will be unique to every performance.carnival of souls web
