“Emily” -  (R; 2 hours, 10 minutes) -  The film imagines Emily Brontë’s own Gothic story that inspired her seminal novel, “Wuthering Heights.” Haunted by the death of her mother, Emily struggles within the confines of her family life and yearns for artistic and personal freedom, and so begins a journey to channel her creative potential into one of the greatest novels of all time. Final show Thursday, March 23 at 2 p.m.

“Mary Cassatt: Painting the Modern Woman” - (1 hour, 33 minutes) - Exhibition on Screen -  Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art. She printed, sketched, and painted dozens of images of mothers and children yet she never married or had children herself. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals – the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art. The world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change. Playing Thursday, March 23 at 7 p.m. and Friday, March 24 at 2 p.m. Tickets: $15 adult, $13 member, $5 youth 18 and under.
