All screenings are free and made possible thanks to a generous grant fro the Alfred P. Sloan Foundaition and Coolide Corner Theatre Foundation.

Synopsis: Max Fischer, a tenth grade scholarship student at Rushmore Academy, falls in love with Rosemary Cross, a widowed elementary school teacher, but his friendship with Herman Blume, an unhappy, wealthy industrialist, suffers when Blume falls for Miss Cross as well.

There will be a post show discussion with Psychiatrist Kyle John (Mercy Hospitals) about how the adolescent brain develops.

"One of the freshest, richest, most original films to come out of Hollywood in a very long time."
- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Schwartzman is cautious but stubbornly optimistic, while Murray is possessed by the mania of near-despair... They make the best and most disconcerting odd couple that American movies have produced in a long while."
- Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"The hint of genuine pathos [Murray] brings to Rushmore tempers Schwartzman's brash, sometimes off-putting antics, gracing an already great comedy with surprising depth and heart."
- Scott Tobias, AV Club
