“Trip To Spain”  - After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, they head to Spain to sample the best of the country's gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter. Over plates of pintos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age. As always, the locales are breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish. Final screening Wednesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m.

“Dolores”  -  Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers’ unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century-and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one's life to social change. Plays Thursday, Oct. 26 at 2 and 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m.

“Rebel in the Rye”  -  J.D. Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) is one of the most enigmatic authors of modern American literature. Everybody reads “Catcher in the Rye” in high school, but nobody understands much about the life of this recluse whose first and only work became a classic. The biopic delves deep into his thought process on writing, his romance with Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch), who later became Charlie Chaplin’s wife, his experiences in World War II, and especially the complicated relationship with his editor (Kevin Spacey) who was the only one who could coax Salinger into being himself. PG-13.  Plays at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, Saturday, Oct. 28, and Wednesday, Nov. 1; and at 2 and 7 p.m. on  Sunday, Nov. 29.

“Logan Lucky” -  West Virginia family man Jimmy Logan teams up with his one-armed brother Clyde and sister Mellie to steal money from the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. Jimmy also recruits demolition expert Joe Bang to help them break into the track's underground system. Complications arise when a mix-up forces the crew to pull off the heist during a popular NASCAR race while also trying to dodge a relentless FBI agent. Rated PG-13. Starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig. Final screening Thursday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. only.

“Lucky”  -  Lucky follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.  Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut "Lucky", is at once a love letter to the life and career of the late Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.  Not rated. Playing at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27 , Saturday, Oct. 28; plays at 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29, Wednesday, Nov. 1 and Thursday, Nov. 2.

John le Carré: An Evening with George Smiley  -  Captured live from London's Royal Festival Hall, join us for a celebration of one of the world’s greatest writers as he shares the secrets behind the creation of his most beloved character. Coinciding with the publication date of his new novel, A Legacy of Spies, the event includes readings from the book by the author. The novel sees the return of some of le Carré’s most iconic Cold War characters, including George Smiley and his trusted lieutenant, Peter Guillam, as their past comes back to claim them in the present. With a rare question and answer session, the conversation is an unmissable opportunity to experience one of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words. Saturday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m.
