Directed by Garth Davis, Australia | 118 minutes | English, Rated PG, eOne

The Salesman - April 24, 2017 at 7pm

The Salesman

Directed by Asghar Farhadi, Iran/France | 125 minutes | Persian w/ English subtitles, Rated PG, Elevation Pictures

WINNER Best Foreign Language Film, Academy Awards

A sudden eruption of violence creates an atmosphere of simmering tension between a husband and wife in this work of slow-burning suspense from Academy Award–winning Iranian master Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, The Past).

With their Tehran apartment block on the brink of collapse, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) are obliged to move into a shabby nearby flat. Soon, an unfriendly visitor comes calling and there is an eruption of violence. Before we can get our bearings, Farhadi has us unnerved and locked in an elegantly rendered realm of simmering domestic tension. Following The Salesman’s initial traumatic events, things turn strange and tense between husband and wife. Feeling vengeful and confused, Emad plays detective, while rattled Rana gives him mysteriously mixed signals. Meanwhile, the two are performing as Willy and Linda Loman in an amateur production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, and their onstage roles begin to resonate with their fractured lives in beguiling ways.


Mean Dreams - May 8, 2017 at 7pm

Directed by Nathan Morlando, Canada | 108 minutes | English, Rated 14A, Elevation Pictures

Golden Globe nominated Bill Paxton (Training Day, Big Love, Nightcrawler) and Colm Feore (House of Cards, Thor, The Amazing Spiderman 2) join rising stars Sophie Nélisse (The Book Thief) and Josh Wiggins (Max, Hellion) in the suspense thriller Mean Dreams. Mean Dreams follows courageous local farm boy Jonas (Wiggins) and the new girl next door, Casey (Nélisse), as they embark on a journey that will change their lives forever. As young love blossoms between the two fifteen year olds, Jonas also discovers that Casey’s abusive home life has reached a new level of danger, and Jonas takes the lead in their escape by stealing a bag full of drug money from Casey’s corrupt father – local cop Wayne Caraway (Paxton). With the stolen cash as their only means to a better life, Casey flees with Jonas and together, under relentless pursuit from her father, they learn the hard truth of what it will take in order to survive.

I, Daniel Blake - May 15, 2017 at 7pm

Directed by Ken Loach, UK/France/Belgium | 100 minutes | English, NYR, Mongrel Media

For nearly 50 prolific years, British master Ken Loach (Jimmy’s Hall) has addressed socio- economic issues in Britain and beyond through the working-class heroes who populate his films. His relatable characters, with all their naturalism and sharp edges, leap off the screen as if real people in real, and usually dire, situations.

Loach’s latest feature is indeed one of his finest explorations of social realism. The eponymous Daniel (Dave Johns, Dogtown) is an affable 59-yearold carpenter in Newcastle, England, fighting to collect his Employment and Support Allowance after falling ill. (Government illogic stipulates that his benefits will be taken away unless he looks for work, yet doctor’s orders prevent him from working.) Waiting to sign on at the local Job Centre, Daniel befriends Katie (Hayley Squires), a young single mother who is also being shoved around by the vagaries of the system, having just been relocated with her two kids from a London homeless shelter to an affordable council flat up north. A mutually beneficial alliance, and makeshift extended family, is formed.

Season's pass available until the start of the first film on March 27, 2017!

$45 Regular Package - Not available after 1st film of each season
