“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.  Screening at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 19 and Thursday, Jan. 20.

“The Danish Collector” – Exhibition on Screen - (Not Rated; 90 minutes) - 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, 2 p.m.

“Spider Man: No Way Home” – (PG-13; 2 hours, 28 minutes) - For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero's identity is revealed, bringing his Superhero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange's help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who've ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but also the future of the Multiverse. Starring Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Zendaya as MJ, and also featuring Jon Favreau, Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe and others. Directed by Amy Pascal. Here for 2 weeks! Screening at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 21; Wednesday, Jan. 26; Thursday, Jan. 27; Friday, Jan. 28; Wednesday, Feb. 2 and Thursday, Feb. 3.

In this latest of the Spider-Man films, Peter Travers of ABC News says, “Tom Holland is better than ever in his surprise-packed, third solo outing as a teen hero in a onesie who's out to save the world … but this time the generic thrills are tempered with genuine emotion. Good one, Spidey.”
