    Mocha and More - This Song Will Save Your Life

    Elise is a misfit and has endured a lifetime of social isolation and bullying. Walking alone one night after a half-hearted suicide attempt, she inadvertently ends up at an underground nightclub. There, Elise fits in and she begins living a double life, returning each week to learn how to spin music by the cute house DJ. Her secrets, however, are impossible to maintain and when a cyberbully starts harassing Elise, everything starts to unravel.

  • The Kid - Wednesday Classic Film Series
    Wednesday, September 2, 2015 - 1:00pm

    The opening title reads: "A comedy with a smile--and perhaps a tear". As she leaves the charity hospital and passes a church wedding, Edna (Edna Purviance) deposits her new baby with a pleading note and goes off to commit suicide. Charlie the Tramp (Charles Chaplin) finds the baby and makes a home for him. Five years later Edna has become an opera star but does charity work for slum youngsters in hope of finding her boy. One of Chaplin’s best directorial early features is full of comedy, pathos, and action. A young Jackie Coogan is spectacular as the Kid.
