Its single screen shows new, unique, and classic movies.

This Week's Movie


This week (Apr 17, 18, 19, 22 at 7:30pm), we show Elephant Song.

Rating: PG for infrequent coarse langauge and nudity, and for some mature subject matter.

Drama. A psychiatrist (Bruce Greenwood) is drawn into a complex mind game when he questions an institutionalized patient (Xavier Dolan) about the disappearance of a colleague. --IMDb

Next week (Apr 24, 25, 26, 29 at 7:30pm), we show The Riot Club.

Rating: 14A for pervasive coarse language and alcohol abuse, and for portrayals of sexual activity.


Those rich, young white men. Those lords. Born to English privilege, they float through childhood on inherited wealth, studying the bright future that birthright affords them. By the time they land at Oxford, they might have matured into responsible rulers in the making. Or monsters.

The Riot Club is the story of a secret society of ten impossibly wealthy and entitled men at the university. Their traditions of indulgence and debauchery date back centuries, and they take deadly seriously their duty to master the arcane knowledge and exacting social codes that will secure them high posts in British government and business.

Miles (Max Irons) went to the right schools and cultivated the right connections to gain his place at Oxford, but he is ambivalent when the Riot Club recruits him in his first weeks on campus. He's not naturally superior. Lauren (Holliday Grainger), the young student who interests him, comes from a modest family. She actually earned her admission to the school on merit. But the thrill of inclusion is too great for Miles to resist.
