“Being the Ricardos” – (R – language; 2 hours 5 minutes) - Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) are threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear and cultural taboos in this behind-the- scenes drama by Academy Award-winning writer and director Aaron Sorkin. A revealing glimpse of the couple's complex romantic and professional relationship, the film takes audiences into the writers' room, onto the soundstage and behind closed doors with Ball and Arnaz during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom “I Love Lucy.” Screening at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 12 and Thursday, Jan. 13.

“The Tragedy of Macbeth” – (R – violence; 1 hour 45 minutes) - Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand give Oscar-worthy performances in Joel Coen’s dark adaptation of Shakespeare’s famed drama about a Scottish lord who becomes convinced by a trio of witches that he will become the next King of Scotland. His ambitious wife supports him in his plans for seizing power. This film marks Coen’s first time directing without his brother Ethan (together they have been nominated 13 times for Academy Awards). Showing at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 14, Saturday, Jan. 15, Wednesday, Jan. 19, Thursday, Jan. 20; and at 2 p.m. only Sunday, Jan. 16.

“Joel Coen's triumphant film of Shakespeare's tragedy astounds on every level, with Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, two acting titans, playing an aging couple taking their last shot at murderous ambition. You can't take your eyes off them.” - Peter Travers, ABC News

“The Danish Collector” – (Not rated, 90 minutes) - The Exhibition on Screen popular art film series continues in January with “The Danish Collector: Delacroix to Gauguin.” William Hansen, a Danish businessman, amassed a superb collection of French 19th century art at his estate, Ordupgaard, outside Copenhagen, during the dark days of World War I. “The Danish Collector” tells his fascinating story and, with exclusive access to a sell-out exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, brings the extraordinary collection to the big screen. From Hansen’s beautiful house and gardens at Ordrupgaard to the streets of bohemian Paris, this film takes you on a journey to discover some of the best examples of 19th-century French art ever collected, including works by Corot, Delacroix, Courbet, Monet, Pissarro, Cezanne, Degas, Manet and Gauguin. One show only: Friday, Jan. 21 at 2 p.m.
