    “Degas: Passion for Perfection” - Exhibition on Screen – (NR, run time 1 hour 25 minutes.) JEOS takes us on a journey from the streets of Paris to the heart of a superb exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’ works is the most representative in Britain. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells a fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentations with new techniques, and lessons learned from studying the past masters. Sometimes frustrated by his own failings, many of Degas’ drawings and sculptures were kept in private during his lifetime, but now they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era.  One show only, Friday, Oct. 15, 2 p.m.

    “No Time to Die” - (Rated PG-13, run time  2 hours 43 minutes) - The 25th spy film in the James Bond series stars Daniel Craig in his fifth outing as the fictional British M16 agent - 007. Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected. Cast includes Rami Malik, Ralph Fiennes, Christopher Waltz. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a screenplay by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Plays at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, Saturday, Oct. 16,  Wednesday, Oct. 20, Thursday, Oct. 21; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17.

    “Dune” – (Rated PG-13 run time 2 hours 35 minutes)  - One of the most-anticipated films of 2021. Based on Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel, sometimes cited as the world’s best-selling science fiction work, starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin. Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, must travel to Arrakis, the most dangerous and desert-like planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet's exclusive supply of Melange, a spice that extends life and expands mental abilities, it becomes clear that only those who can conquer their own fear will survive. Directed by Denis Villeneuve. Playing Oct. 22-28 at 7 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 24 at 2 p.m.
