New this week at the Playhouse we have Made In Italy. Liam Neeson stars with his son (who took the last name of his late mother, Natasha Richardson) in a touching, family story set in Tuscany. Enjoy the stunning vistas on our big screen! 

One of the most talked-about recent psychological horrors debuts at the Playhouse this Friday: She Dies Tomorrow, about a woman who thinks she's dying tomorrow, a psychosis that proves contagious. Time Magazine says, "If She Dies Tomorrow were a song rather than a movie, it would be the anthem for our current age of anxiety." Critics are loving this one! 

With the upcoming release of Christopher Nolan's new film, Tenet, it's a great time to revisit his dream within a dream within a dream, Inception, a 10th anniversary theatrical re-release. 

Another re-release we are proud to present is the 4K restoration of David Cronenberg's magnificent, Crash. If you think this movie depicts a bizarre subculture, you should dive right in and read J.G. Ballard's source material! Crash is a deeply profound work on the nature of trauma and definitely worth multiple viewings. Go for head-on full impact and immerse yourself in it at the Playhouse!

Royal Geographic Society's Explorer-in-Residence on the big screen: Adam Shoalts' ALONE ACROSS THE ARCTIC - The Movie.

The risks he takes to live life to the fullest and challenge himself puts much in perspective. If you're longing for adventure, get your tickets now. One show only! 

Also on screen this week are two films back by popular demand --Summerland and The Empire Strikes Back-- plus, Inglourious Basterds, part of our Tarantino series. Watch Hitler get blown up, real good!

“Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he’s the real thing, a director of quixotic delights. 4 Stars.” – Roger Ebert

Once upon a time in Nazi occupied France… You haven’t seen war until you’ve seen it through the eyes of the Basterds, a team of Jewish-American soldiers on a thrill-ride of vengeance killing Nazis and spreading fear throughout the Third Reich, whose path crosses with a young Parisian theater owner in Quentin Tarantino Oscar-winning and action-packed epic!

"It's a razzle-dazzle compendium of quick-draw humor, superhero stunts and gamer references wrapped around a teen dream love story, starring -- who else? -- Michael Cera, the first genuine nerd superstar." - Detroit News

“For years now, people have been complaining that movies are turning into video games and comic books. English director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), takes the approach that movies have been far too reticent. His 2010 film, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, is as vibrant as a cluttered wall of graffiti, jumpy enough to risk retina damage.
