Vox: "The quietly radical DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL turns the page on coming-of-age films."

This Friday, at five of our six venues, we'll be opening a film we enjoyed immensely, THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL.

She begins a complex love affair with her mother's (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, "the handsomest man in the world," Monroe Rutherford (Alexander Skarsgård).

Riveting Brazilian Film THE SECOND MOTHER Opens Next Week

An excitingly fresh take on some classic themes and ideas, THE SECOND MOTHER centers around Val, a hard-working live-in housekeeper in modern day Sao Paulo.

ROSENWALD Filmmaker Aviva Kempner in the Forward: "To me, Julius Rosenwald is the best antidote to Donald Trump."

Aviva Kempner's Rosenwald, which we open at the Royal, Playhouse and Town Center on August 28th and the Claremont on September 5th, is the incredible story of Julius Rosenwald, who never finished high school but rose to become the president of Sears. Influenced by the writings of the educator Booker T. Washington, this Jewish philanthropist joined forces with African American communities during the Jim Crow South to build over 5,300 schools during the early part of the 20th century. The film sheds light on this silent partner of the pre-Civil Rights Movement. Rosenwald awarded fellowship grants to a who's who of African American intellectuals [...]

[caption id="attachment_6331" align="alignright" width="250"] Sir Nicholas Winton[/caption] This month we were saddened to learn that Sir Nicholas Winton, a hero who for half a century said nothing of the fact that he rescued hundreds of mostly Jewish children from Czechoslovakia right before World War II, had died at the age of 106.
