  • Wonder Wheel

    3:30pm, 7:45pm

    Wonder Wheel
    • Starring: Kate Winslet, Jim Belushi, Justin Timberlake
    • Director: Woody Allen
    • Genre(s): Drama
    • Rating: PG-13
    • Running Time: 101 min.
    "Winslet delivers her most powerful, emotionally resonant performance in more than a decade. "
    - Eric Kohn, Indiewire
    "It’s got movement and flow, it’s got a vibrant sunset look of honky-tonk nostalgia, and it’s got a bittersweet mood of lyrical despair that the film stays true to right up until the final note. "
    - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
    "This is another earnest, stylish, deeply observant late work from Allen, with only subliminal appearances from the jokey humor that made him a marquee star. "
    - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    "Kate Winslet is a bonfire that burns through every scene. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "Winslet is terrific, with a big, emotional, awards-bait scene at the end. Allen, meanwhile, does an expert job of recreating the old, long-gone Coney, the real New York locations helped along by some digital trickery. "
    - Stephen Whitty, New York Daily News
  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    6:30pm, 9:00pm

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    • Starring: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell
    • Director: Martin McDonagh
    • Genre(s): Drama, Comedy, Crime
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 115 min.
    "Anger is an energy in Martin McDonagh’s brilliant Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, one of the best films of the year. "
    - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
    "McDonagh’s latest work is simply exceptional; a film so rich with narrative fluidity, profane laughs, standout performances and complex character studies that its tremendous emotional hits–often arriving when you least expect them–might just leave you agog. "
    - Rory O'Connor; The Film Stage
    "Those familiar with McDonagh’s work will be unsurprised to learn that Three Billboards is a bold and showboating affair, robustly drawn and richly written; a violent carnival of small-town American life. Yet it has a big, beating heart, even a rough-edged compassion for its brawling inhabitants. "
    - Xan Brooks, The Guardian
    "Not only is Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri the director’s most accomplished film yet, it’s also his most compassionate. "
    - Ben Croll, Indiewire
    "What immediately comes to the forefront is that McDonagh has choreographed an almost impossible feat of a brutally dark comedy that, thanks to both Rockwell and McDormand, elicits an emotional response you simply don’t see coming. "
    - Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist
    "Every performance in this movie acknowledges that while tragedy is what prompted the film’s events, its contours, characters, and conversations are pure, inky black comedy. Absurdity makes for good humor, and the screwed-up world in which these characters live is nothing if not absurd. "
    - Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
    "One of those truly rare films that feels both profound and grounded; inspirational without ever manipulatively trying to be so. "
    - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
    "A towering achievement that will no doubt put in an impressive showing come Oscar nomination time. "
    - Sara Stewart, New York Post
    "A corrosively humorous drama of festering injustice, Shakespearean rage, grave reckoning and imperfect redemption, which unfolds with the epic dimensions of a classic Western showdown. "
    - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
  • The Goonies (1985)

    4:00pm

    The Goonies (1985)
    • Starring: Josh Brolin, Sean Astin
    • Director: Richard Donner
    • Genre(s): Adventure, Comedy, Family
    • Rating: PG
    • Running Time: 114 min.
    "The Goonies is the kind of hyperactive peril-packed movie young audiences can’t resist. "
    - Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News
    "The Goonies, like Gremlins, shows that Spielberg and his directors are absolute masters of how to excite and involve an audience. “E.T.” was more like “Close Encounters”; it didn’t simply want us to feel, but also to wonder, and to dream. "
    - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
    "The Goonies has every imaginable funhouse flourish. It has crooks, bats, cobwebs, skeletons, a lovable monster, an underground grotto and a treasure hidden by some of the most considerate, clue-loving pirates who ever lived. "
    - Janet Maslin, New York Times
  • Lady Bird

    5:45pm, 9:45pm

    Lady Bird
    • Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges
    • Director: Greta Gerwig
    • Genre(s): Drama, Comedy
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 93 min.
    "One of the best films of the year. In telling her own coming of age story, Gerwig proves herself a blazing talent and Ronan and Metcalf should have Oscar calling. Totally irresistible. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "A lovingly observed, pitch perfect coming-of-age comedy, Gerwig’s warm, astute account of the end of adolescence is a stunning solo debut. "
    - Christopher Machell, CineVue
    "Lady Bird is often screamingly funny but it also has a generous spirit, embracing characters with all their flaws and foibles, virtues and defects. "
    - Allan Hunter, Screen International
    "A uniquely American comedy, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird is testy, humane, and firmly rooted in its time and place. "
    - Christopher Gray, Slant Magazine
    "Lady Bird doesn’t exist as a twee indie movie construct, it feels thrillingly real and deeply personal, every single beat ringing true. "
    - Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
    "Lady Bird consolidates the style and sensibility of a generation caught between the last gasp of the 20th century and post-9/11 disillusionment like nothing else before. "
    - Eric Kohn, indieWire
    "There are no fireworks or twists or unnecessary frills here, nor should there be - this is simply perfect filmmaking from a voice that demands to be heard. "
    - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
    "Lady Bird is one of the year’s great joys. Greta Gerwig’s debut as a solo writer-director is so wise, so funny, and so remarkably assured that it seems to have flown in out of nowhere. "
    - Christopher Schobert, The Film Stage
    "Despite hitting so many classic coming-of-age hallmarks, Lady Bird never feels anything but fresh (and refreshing). This is, in part, due to the the film’s remarkably realistic performances. "
    - Sarah Kurchak, Consequence of Sound
    "A sweet, deeply personal portrayal of female adolescence that’s more attuned to the bonds between best girlfriends than casual flings with boys, writer-director Greta Gerwig’s beautiful Lady Bird flutters with the attractively loose rhythms of youth. "
    - Tomris Laffly, Time Out New York

Coming Soon

Newtown

starts December 16

This free screening is sponsored by MOMS Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. RSVP here. A brief panel discussion will follow the film.

On December 14, 2012, a disturbed young man committed a horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut that took the lives of 20 elementary school children and six educators. Filmed over the course of nearly three years, Newtown uses deeply personal, never-before-heard testimonies to tell the story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history. Through raw and heartbreaking interviews with parents, siblings, teachers, doctors, and first responders, Newtown documents a traumatized community still reeling from the senseless killing, fractured by grief but driven toward a sense of purpose.

There are no words of compassion or reassurance that can bring back those who lost their lives during the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Instead, Snyder delves into the lives and homes of those who remain, all of whom have been indelibly changed by the events. They speak candidly about their grief, anger, and disbelief over what occurred and their disappointment that nothing has truly changed in regards to the country’s legislative response to gun violence. Newtown bears witness to their profound grief and allows it to reverberate within our collective conscience, exploring what happens to a community after it becomes the epicenter of a national discussion, and what it must cope with after the cameras leave.

There was before Breathless, and there was after Breathless. Jean-Luc Godard burst onto the film scene in 1960 with this jazzy, free-form, and sexy homage to the American film genres that inspired him as a writer for Cahiers du cinéma. With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, anything-goes crime narrative, and effervescent young stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, Breathless helped launch the French New Wave and ensured that cinema would never be the same.

Summary: A small-time thief steals a car and impulsively murders a motorcycle policeman. Wanted by the authorities, he reunites with a hip American journalism student and attempts to persuade her to run away with him to Italy.

On Stage: Bernstein Centenary

starts May 12

The Moxie: On Stage is a new series showcasing world class performances from stages across the globe.

Tickets: $20/adults; $15/members & students.

This series is made possible thanks to a grant from the Springfield Regional Arts Council.

Leonard Bernstein was one of the first classical composers in America to achieve both popular and critical acclaim. He was eclectic in his sources – drawing on jazz and modernism, the traditions of Jewish music and the Broadway musical – and many of Bernstein’s scores are remarkably well suited to dance. He was particularly associated with Jerome Robbins, their credits together including Fancy Free and West Side Story. To celebrate the centenary year of the composer’s birth, The Royal Ballet has united all three of its associate choreographers to celebrate the dynamic range and danceability of Bernstein’s music.

The programme includes two world premieres by Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon, marking each artist’s first foray into Bernstein. At the heart of the programme is the first revival of Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett’s The Age of Anxiety, created in 2014 to Bernstein’s soul-searching Second Symphony.

Both symphony and ballet are inspired by W.H. Auden’s masterful modernist poem, itself written in response to the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty that followed the end of World War II.

On Stage: Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte

starts June 9

The Moxie: On Stage is a new series showcasing world class performances from stages across the globe.

Tickets: $20/adults; $15/members & students.

This series is made possible thanks to a grant from the Springfield Regional Arts Council.

Prompted by Don Alfonso, a cynical old philosopher, two young idealists decide to put their lovers’ fidelity to the test. But love will teach them a bitter lesson: those who believe themselves phoenixes and goddesses will discover the desires of the flesh…

In 1790, one year after the French Revolution, in what would be their final collaboration, Mozart and Da Ponte conduct a scientific investigation of love. The music of Così fan tutte is truly extraordinary – complex in its symmetry, jovial and yet infused with an almost sacred melancholia. An extraordinary score where each note seems intended to make us accept a loss – lost paradise, lost youth, or a lost loved-one – and portray a world where all is in a constant state of flux. This laboratory of eroticism could but inspire choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, who excels in revealing a work’s innermost geometry on stage. With six singers doubled by six dancers, she depicts the desire which unites and separates human beings, like the interactions between atoms that, once broken, make new bonds possible.

On Stage: The Royal Ballet's Swan Lake

starts July 21

The Moxie: On Stage is a new series showcasing world class performances from stages across the globe.

Tickets: $20/adults; $15/members & students.

This series is made possible thanks to a grant from the Springfield Regional Arts Council.

Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934.
This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night. Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.
