    Screenings are at 7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday; and 2 p.m. only on Sunday.

    “Moonage Daydream” - (PG-13; 2 hours, 15 minutes) - A cinematic odyssey exploring Bowie’s creative, spiritual and musical journey. From the visionary mind of Brett Morgen, “Moonage Daydream” features captivating, never-before-seen footage and performances spanning David Bowie’s 54-year career. The film includes 40 exclusively remastered Bowie songs and is the first film ever sanctioned by the Bowie Estate, with local access to the artists’ archives. Final shows at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2 and  Thursday, Nov. 3.

    “Ticket To Paradise” - (PG-13; 1 hour, 44 minutes) - “Ticket to Paradise” follows a standard romantic comedy script: a divorced couple teams up and travels to Bali to stop their daughter from making the same mistake they think they made 25 years ago. But that’s almost beside the point. You don’t go to this movie to follow the predictable plot, you go to see George Clooney and Julia Roberts once again make sparks fly on the big screen.  Clooney is one of the last movie stars of the old-school mold. He’s always smiling, he’s drop-dead handsome, and the camera loves him. Roberts, with her big, wide smile and flowing auburn hair has all the connotations of a 1940s glamour girl. Their past collaborations, most notably in “Oceans Eleven,” have not only added to their solo careers, but turned them into a modern-day version of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. Here they are, once again going after each other with spit and barb until of course the inevitable happens.  Plays at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4; Saturday, Nov. 5;  Wednesday, Nov. 9; Thursday, Nov. 10 and Friday, Nov. 11; Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2  p.m.

    “It’s a joy to watch Julia Roberts and George Clooney fall in love. It’s an even greater joy to watch them bicker… They’re heirs to that great screwball tradition.” - Independent (UK)

    “The Apartment” - (1960 - NR; 2 hours, 5 minutes) -  As of Nov. 1, 1959 mild mannered C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) has been working at Consolidated Life, an insurance company, for close to four years, and is one of close to 32,000 employees located in their Manhattan head office. To distinguish himself from all the other lowly cogs in the company in the hopes of moving up the corporate ladder, he often works late, but only because he can't get into his apartment, located off of Central Park West, since he has provided it to a handful of company executives on a rotating basis for their extramarital liaisons in return for a good word to the personnel director, Jeff D. Sheldrake. When Baxter is called into Sheldrake's office for the first time, he learns that it isn't just to be promoted as he expects, but also to add married Sheldrake to the list to who he will lend his apartment. Although Baxter often has to deal with the aftermath of the big shots’ visits, one night he's left with a major problem to solve (Shirley MacLaine). Two shows only at 2 p.m.: Thursday, Nov. 10 and Saturday, Nov. 12.
