“The Father” - (PG-13; 1 hour 37 minutes) Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the caregivers that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can no longer make daily visits and Anthony’s grip on reality is unraveling. The film warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant — a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives. Final screenings Wednesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 15 at 2 and 7 p.m.

“Blithe Spirit” - (PG-13; 1 hour, 39 minutes) Charles Condomine (Dan Stevens) is a married crime novelist who is suffering from writer’s block. While attempting to adapt his novel to the screen, Charles finds himself in a tough predicament when he seeks intervention from eccentric mystic, Madame Arcati (Judi Dench) who summons the spirit of his first wife (Leslie Mann) during a séance. Isla Fisher stars as Charles’ current wife, Ruth. A fresh and witty adaptation of Noël Coward’s classic comedy. Plays at 2 and 7 p.m. Friday, April 16, Saturday, April 17, and Wednesday, Apr 21; see it at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 18.

“Warlock” - (1959; 2 hours, 1 minute) Based on the novel by Oakley Hall. Hired to protect a small mining town in Utah, gunslinger Clay Blaisedell (Henry Fonda) and his devoted follower, Tom Morgan (Anthony Quinn), partake in numerous liberties afforded by their position of power. While Blaisedell and Morgan match the violence of the outlaws they fight, the local inhabitants desire more peaceful resolutions to the crime problem. When reformed thug Johnny Gannon (Richard Widmark) takes the post of sheriff, he finds himself in competition with the town’s hired guns. Playing at 2 and 7 p.m. Thursday, April 22 and at 2 p.m. Friday, April 23. Presented in partnership with Skidompha Library as part of the Western Book Club and Film Series.
