“The Batman” – (PG-13; 2 hours, 56 minutes) - BATMAN is back! Two years of stalking the streets as The Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies—Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)— amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high‐profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance among his fellow citizens.

When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld. As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City. Also starring Zoe Kravitz as Selina, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Colin Farrell and John Turturro. Screening at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 9; Thursday, March 10; Friday, March 11; Saturday, March 12 – PLUS 2 p.m. matinee - Proof of vaccination required for all adults and children age 5 and over. Masks are required at all times except when eating or drinking; and Wednesday, March 16; Thursday, March 17; and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 13.

“This grounded, nearly three-hour film noir registers among the best of the genre ... what makes the film so great is its willingness to dismantle and interrogate the very concept of superheroes.” -Variety

“Exhibition on Screen: Frida Kahlo” – (NR; 90 minutes) - We may have heard about the artist as a global icon, but now we have a chance to discover the woman behind the bright colors, the big brows, and the floral crowns? Director Ali Ray traveled to Kahlo’s home, “The Blue House,” in Mexico City to unravel the truth about her turbulent life. With access to her personal letters, he discovered how her fragilities and insecurities were processed through the act of painting. It was how she interpreted the world, her politics, passions and emotions, and transformed them into images of strength, defiance and understanding.

Exhibition on Screen’s trademark combination of interviews, commentary and a detailed exploration of her art delivers a treasure trove of color and a feast of vibrancy. This personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works, and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience, and her unmatched lust for life, politics, and love. One show only: Friday, March 18 at 2 p.m.

Coming soon: “Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom” – March 18. “The film is a fable, to be sure, and one that unfolds at a leisurely pace...but it's sharp-witted as well as soulful... and brings news from a little-known area of the world.” -Wall Street Journal
