(2000, DCP, 124m) dir Gina Prince-Bythewood w/Omar Epps, Sanaa Lathan, Glenndon Chatman. Love & Basketball excels on both sides of the ampersand: a great romance, expressed as tenderly as Maxwell singing “This Woman’s Work” on the soundtrack; a great sports drama, exploring lack of opportunity in the pre-WNBA era. -Geoffrey Stueven, box office volunteer since […]


(1984, DCP, 147m) dir Wim Wenders w/Harry Dean Stanton, Natassja Kinski, Dean Stockwell. “Paris, Texas is something like a western, something like a ghost story, and a powerful film about reckoning with regret, with a rare—and perfect—lead performance from one of film’s great character actors, Harry Dean Stanton.” -Greg Hunter, box office volunteer since January […]

(1955, DCP, 125m) dir Satyajit Ray w/Subir Banerjee, Kanu Banerjee, Karuna Banerjee. “I find movies that draw compelling insights from the familiar to be particularly moving.

(1987, DCP, 107m) dir Bruce Robinson w/Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann. “Few films can navigate the arena of the unwell successfully, but Withnail & I triumphs in tragedy and wit through an exploration of a booze-soaked and complex friendship that’s perfectly written, and expertly acted — Richard E.
