  • Mr. Turner

    3:30pm, 6:30pm

    Mr. Turner
    "Mr. Turner is far more than merely an explosion of color and toned nuance for the eye. The real reason to make this a must-see of this holiday season is to wallow in the Oscar-worthy acting talent of Leigh’s veteran player Timothy Spall. "
    - Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times
    "Leigh’s film — one of the year’s best — honors its subject in all his tetchy ambiguity. "
    - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
    "Just as Turner’s expressive, enthralling work changed the nature of painting, Mr. Turner, anchored in the rock of Timothy Spall’s astonishing, Cannes prize-winning performance, pushes hard against the strictures of conventional narrative and ends up pulling us into its world and capturing us completely. "
    - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
    "Shimmering with awards potential, Leigh’s glorious picture is a hilarious, confounding, wholehearted and dazzlingly performed portrait of an artist as an ageing man. "
    - Ian Nathan, Empire
  • Still Alice

    4:00pm

    Still Alice
    "This is a deeply moving dramatization of what Alzheimer’s does to mind and spirit, anchored by the finest performance, male or female, from any 2014 movie release. "
    - Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times
    "You won’t see a better performance by an actress on film this year than Julianne Moore as a linguistics professor struggling to hold onto her personality after a diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s in the unforgettable drama Still Alice. "
    - Lou Lumenick, New York Post
    "The film lives and dies on Moore’s portrayal. She succeeds smashingly. "
    - Gregory Ellwood, HitFix
    "Moore is nominated this year, and whether she wins or not, her performance deserves attention. It is one of this very fine actress’ defining roles. And it resonates with humanity and heartbreak. "
    - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
    "Moore’s portrayal of 50-year-old Alice Howland, adapted from Lisa Genova’s 2007 novel, is one of the best of her career. "
    - Claudia Puig, USA Today
    "Julianne Moore is extraordinary at revealing the gradual loss of memory and confidence, and at showing the hulk of physical persistence that remains after intellect and reference have gone. "
    - David Thomson, The New Republic
    "There’s an extraordinarily tough and smart delicacy to Still Alice, and it stretches far beyond the writing or Moore’s performance or even the sympathy of the circumstance. "
    - James Rocchi, TheWrap
    "The toll the disease takes on the life of a brilliant linguistics professor is superbly detailed by Julianne Moore in a career-high performance, driving straight to the terror of the disease and its power to wipe out personal certainties and identity. "
    - Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
  • Selma

    6:15pm

    Selma
    "Intelligently written, vividly shot, tightly edited, sharply acted, the film represents a rare example of craftsmanship working to produce a deeply moving piece of history. "
    - Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter
    "In a year of remarkable performances, Oyelowo is simply magnificent as Dr. King. "
    - Gregory Ellwood, HitFix
    "Selma is vital correspondence, filmmaking lived on the streets where brutal facts were ignored then reported, and now snatched back from history to sustain a spirit few films can or will possess. It is stunning humanistic cinema on a mainstream scale… It has inventiveness, urgency, humor, and most of all emotion that draws effortless parallels rather than leaving its lesson up on the screen. "
    - Charlie Schmidlin, The Playlist
    "DuVernay’s razor-sharp portrait of the Civil Rights movement — and Dr. King himself — at a critical crossroads is as politically astute as it is psychologically acute, giving us a human-scale King whose indomitable public face belies currents of weariness and self-doubt. "
    - Scott Foundas, Variety
    "Selma is one of the best American films of the year — and indeed perhaps the best — precisely because it does not simply show what Dr. King did for America in his day; it also wonders explicitly what we have left undone for America in ours. "
    - James Rocchi, TheWrap

starts March 7

This free screening is sponsored by the Springfield Conservation Nature Center. Registration begins February 17. Call 417-888-4237 to reserve your spot as seats are limited. Adults only. This film is not rated.

The ivory-billed woodpecker has long been considered the Holy Grail by diehard birders who refused to believe it went extinct over sixty years ago. When scientists announced that the bird had been found in the swamps of Eastern Arkansas, the nation’s 70 million birders celebrated the woodpecker’s second coming. As did the citizens of nearby Brinkley who welcomed the flood of tourists to their down-and-out Delta town. Following the largest recovery effort ever undertaken for a lost species, and despite millions of dollars in funding, ivory-bills remain as elusive as ever. With the current rate of species extinction estimated at over 100 times the planet’s evolutionary average, salvation may be too late for more than just the ivory-billed woodpecker. Ghost Bird brings the ivory-bill’s blurry rediscovery into focus, revealing our uneasy relationship with nature and the increasing uncertainty of our place within it. (Anthology Film Archives)
