UPCOMING FILMS:

OPENS JULY 10TH:

Alex, Emily and their son RJ have recently moved to Los Angeles' Eastside from Seattle. Feeling lost in a new city, they are desperate to find their first new friends. After a chance meeting with Kurt at the neighborhood park, they gladly agree to join family pizza night at the home. But as it gets later and the kids go to bed, the family “playdate” becomes increasingly more revealing and bizarre as the couples begin to open up. Writer/director Patrick Brice's painfully funny take on thirty-something sexual frustration and parenthood features memorable lead performances by Taylor Schilling, Adam Scott, Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche. Each actor nimbly balances the script's sudden emotional turns from surprising honestly to complete embarrassment.

OPENS JULY 10TH:

The six Angulo Brothers have spent their entire lives locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Nicknamed The Wolfpack, they're all exceedingly bright, are homeschooled, have no acquaintances outside their family and have practically never left their home. All they know of the outside world is gleaned from the films they watch obsessively and recreate meticulously, using elaborate homemade props and costumes (Reservoir Dogs is a favorite). For years this has served as a productive creative outlet and a way to stave off loneliness—but after one brother escapes the apartment, all the boys begin to dream of venturing out. Armed with unprecedented access into the subjects' world and vast archive of home movies, director Crystal Moselle crafts a fascinating portrait of an extraordinary family, capturing the thrill of the Wolfpack's discoveries without skirting the darker questions of abuse and confinement that weigh upon all of them. The Wolfpack charts a fascinating coming-of-age story and becomes a true example of the power of movies to transform and save lives.

OPENS JULY 17TH:

Amy tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy winner Amy Winehouse—in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can. A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense—she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyze her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era. Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which, coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle, saw her life tragically begin to unravel. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27. Directed by Asif Kapadia (Senna).

Based on a true story, Infinitely Polar Bear is a funny and heartbreaking portrait of the many unexpected ways in which parents and children save each other.

Broke, stressed and overwhelmed, Maggie applies to business school and is accepted to Columbia University’s MBA program—leaving Cam the primary caregiver for the girls while she completes her degree.
