“The Batman” – (PG-13; 2 hours, 56 minutes) - 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. When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends The Batman 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. Co-stars Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell and John Turturro. Final screenings at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 16 and Thursday, March 17.

“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

“Frida Kahlo” – Exhibition on Screen - (NR; 90 minutes) - Who was Frida Kahlo? 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. 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. Plays Friday, March 18 at 2 p.m.

“Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom” – (NR;1 hour 49 minutes) - Here is the story of Ugyen, a young teacher in the modern capital of Bhutan who shirks his duties while planning his trip to Australia to become a singer. As a reprimand, his superiors send him to the most remote school in the world, in a village called Lunana, to complete his service. There he finds no electricity, no textbooks, not even a blackboard, only a small room where a Yak is tethered (no other place for a school). Only his ability to sing helps him win over his young eager students. He wants to quit... but he begins to learn of the hardship in the lives of these beautiful children and is won over by the amazing spiritual strength of the villagers and the untouched natural beauty of the Himalayan glacier where they live. A 2021 Oscar-nominated film. Matinees at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 19 and Wednesday, March 23. Playing at 7 p.m. Friday, March 18, Saturday, March 19, Wednesday, March 23, and Thursday, March 24.

“Opening the doors to a land and people most Westerners know little about, the director crafts a crowd-pleaser in stunning, mostly unseen locations whose charms weather even its most idealistically patriotic notes ...” – Los Angeles Times

“Cyrano” – (PG-13; 2 hours, 4 minutes) - Award-winning director Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice) envelops moviegoers in a symphony of emotions with music, romance, and beauty in Cyrano, re-imagining the timeless tale of a heartbreaking love triangle. A man ahead of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac (played by Peter Dinklage) dazzles whether with ferocious wordplay at a verbal joust or with brilliant swordplay in a duel. But, convinced that his appearance renders him unworthy of the love of a devoted friend, the luminous Roxanne (Haley Bennett), Cyrano has yet to declare his feelings for her -- meanwhile Roxanne has fallen in love, at first sight, with Christian (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.). Matinees at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 27 and Wednesday, March 30. Plays at 7 p.m. Friday, March 25, Saturday, March 26, Wednesday, March 30, and Thursday, March 31.
