    “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. Showing at 7 p,m, Wednesday, Oct. 5 and Thursday, Oct. 6.

    “The Good House” - (R; 1 hour, 43 minutes) -  Here’s a terrifically entertaining comedy/drama with fabulous performances by luminous stars Sigourney Weaver and Kevin Kline that’s literally close to home. Set on Boston’s North Shore, an area whose fishing towns are being gentrified, “The Good House” takes us into the houses and hearts of realtor Hildy Good (Weaver) and fisherman Frank Getchell (Kline). Hildy, who’s warm but tough, is the top realtor in the area … but has a bit of a drinking problem that isn’t always quite hidden behind houses’ walls. Frank, who’s salt of the earth except that he’s salt of the sea, is equally successful, and the two have a longstanding flame that burns brighter, if mostly controlled, as they age. In “The Good House,” we find ourselves falling in love with this conceivable couple as we both laugh and hurt a bit with them.

    “In the film’s sharp comic observations and especially its two fine leads, something real and messy sparks to life.”—Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

    Food & Film Series: “Julia” - (PG-13; 1 hour, 35 minutes) -  A phenomenal film about a phenomenal woman. Not only did Julia Childs break into a man’s world as a female chef in France, where all chefs were men, but later she became a TV personality and an icon in the culinary world. Julie Cohen and Betsy West (directors of RBG) have used never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos and mouth-watering food cinematography to trace Julia Child's surprising path, from her struggles to create and publish the revolutionary Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961) to her empowering story of a woman who found fame as an unlikely but highly entertaining television sensation in her 50’s. Monday Oct. 10, 7 p.m.
