    “Priscilla” - (R; 1 hour, 50 minutes) -  When teenage Priscilla Beaulieu meets Elvis Presley at a party, the man who is already a meteoric rock-and-roll superstar becomes someone entirely unexpected in private moments: a thrilling crush, an ally in loneliness, a gentle best friend. Through Priscilla’s eyes, Director Sofia Coppola tells the unseen side of a great American myth in Elvis and Priscilla’s long courtship and turbulent marriage, from a German army base to his dream-world estate at Graceland, in this deeply felt and ravishingly detailed portrait of love, fantasy, and fame. Final screenings at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15 and Thursday,  Nov. 16.

    “Klimt & The Kiss” - Exhibition on Screen - (1 hour, 30 minutes) -  “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt is one of the most recognized and reproduced paintings in the world. It is perhaps the most popular poster on student dorm walls from Beijing to Boston. Painted in Vienna around 1908, the evocative image of an unknown embracing couple has captivated viewers with its mystery, sensuality, and dazzling materials ever since it was created. But just what lies behind the appeal of the painting – and just who was the artist that created it? Delving into the details of real gold, decorative designs, symbolism and simmering erotica, a close study of the painting takes us to the remarkable turn of the century Vienna when a new world was battling with the old. From the director of “Frida Kahlo” and “Mary Cassatt – Painting the Modern Woman” comes a powerful, gripping and passionate new film. Tickets are regular prices and may be purchased at the door. One show only Friday, Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. Doors open at 1:30.

    “Familiar as the image is, there are new things to find out about The Kiss: I’d never noticed, for example, that the entwined lovers are standing on the edge of a precipice.” – Andrew Pulver, Guardian

    “What Happens Later” - (R; 1 hour, 45 minutes) - Two ex lovers, Bill (David Duchovny) and Willa (Meg Ryan), get snowed in at a regional airport overnight. Indefinitely delayed, Willa, a magical thinker, and Bill, a catastrophic one, find themselves just as attracted to and annoyed by one another as they did decades earlier. But as they unpack the riddle of their mutual past and compare their lives to the dreams they once shared, they begin to wonder if their reunion is mere coincidence, or something more enchanted. Opening Friday, Nov. 17, 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 18, 7 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 19, 2 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 22, 7 p.m.

    “The chemistry between Duchovny and Ryan takes flight long before the planes are ready to board.” -  Thelma Adams, AARP Movies for Grown Ups
