  • Me and Earl and the Dying Girl - Saturday First Run Feature
    Saturday, September 12, 2015 - 2:00pm
    Auditorium

    Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life. He even describes his constant companion Earl (RJ Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a 'co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer - he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be.

    Not available on DVD until October 6th.

  • The Grim Game - Wednesday Classic Film Series
    Wednesday, September 16, 2015 - 1:00pm
    Auditorium

    This film survived only in fragments until a full print was discovered in a private collection purchased direct from the Houdini estate. Framed for the murder of his uncle, Harvey Hanford (Harry Houdini) breaks out of his jail cell and goes off in pursuit of the gang responsible who have also kidnapped his fiancée (Ann Forrest). The chase acts as a showcase for a series of daredevil stunts, including a straitjacket escape suspended from a skyscraper and a mid-air plane collision.
