    “See How They Run” - (PG-13; 1 hour, 38 minutes) -  This rollicking comedy and take off on earlier whodunits is set in the West End of 1950s London when plans for a movie version of Agatha Christie’s famed “The Mousetrap” come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.

    “A snappy comedy that struts in with an eyebrow coyly arched.” - Variety

    “My Childhood, My Country: 20 Years In Afghanistan” - (1 hour, 34 minutes) - Free - Members only - One show: Sunday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. - Wine and cheese will be served starting at 6:30 p.m. and a pre-show video and remarks from Director Phil Grabsky in the UK about the film and it’s star, Mir.  This BAFTA Award-winning documentary is an epic story of a boy growing up amidst the ravages of war in one of the most embattled corners of the globe. This is a moving film to see as we commemorate the 21st anniversary of 9/11 and consider life in Afghanistan today, one year after the US withdrawal of its troops.

    “A Love Song” - (PG; 1 hour, 21 minutes) - Faye (Dale Dickey) is a lone traveler biding her time fishing, birding and stargazing at a rural Colorado campground as she awaits the arrival of Lito (Wes Studi), a figure from her past who is navigating his own tentative and nomadic journey across the rugged West. A Love Song weaves a lyrical and ultimately joyful refrain out of the transformative act of finding love at any age. Opens Sept. 30.
