Modern classics returning to big screens: Merchant Ivory's HOWARDS END, Antonioni's BLOW-UP and LA NOTTE and a Chabrol retrospective.

Some of the production company Merchant Ivory's greatest triumphs are adaptations of E.M. Forster novels. There are three of them: A Room with a View (1985), Maurice (1987) and Howards End (1992), which is one of their undisputed masterpieces. Based on Forster’s 1910 novel, Howards End is a saga of class relations and changing times in Edwardian England. Margaret Schlegel (Emma Thompson, who won the Best Actress Oscar for this performance) and her sister Helen (Helena Bonham Carter) become involved with two couples: a wealthy, conservative industrialist (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife (Vanessa Redgrave), and a working-class man (Samuel West) a [...]

Stephen Frears' and Meryl Streep's FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS screenings with behind-the-scenes footage and pre-recorded cast Q&A Thursday night and Sunday afternoon.

Set in 1940s New York, Stephen Frears' Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her "husband" and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge. All of our 7:10 PM screenings on Thursday, August 11 and 1:30 PM screenin [...]

Argentine filmmaker Daniel Berman on the making of his lovely autobiographical dramedy THE TENTH MAN, opening August 5 at the Royal and Town Center

Ariel has left his past behind. After growing up in the close-knit Jewish community of Buenos Aires he has built a new and to all appearances successful metropolitan life as an economist in New York. He has come back to his native city to meet his distant father Usher, but for days they miss one another as Usher continues to issue instructions to Ariel for a plethora of errands. Usher’s life’s mission, often to the detriment of his family, is the running of a Jewish aid foundation in El Once, the old Jewish neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Ariel is drawn back into the community and the very role his father plays in it. Along the way, his New Yor [...]

"I love realityÂ’s ability to surprise until life often seems like an unrealistic movie, and reality itself acts like a wonderland." Shemi Zarhin's THE KIND WORDS Opens July 1st

On July 1st we'll open the quirky, wry dramedy The Kind Words at the Royal and Town Center. Nominated for 12 Israeli Academy Awards, the film follows three Jewish Israeli siblings – Dorona and brothers Netanel and Shai – who, in the wake of their mother’s death, learn the man who raised them is not their biological father.
