"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. The revelation sends them on a trip from Israel across France to discover the truth about their real dad. The sixth feature from writer-director Shemi Zarhin explores an unraveling family secret and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery that follows. Zarhin wrote of his film: "I love stories where life is lived 'o [...]

Slate: "The Director and Star of DHEEPAN on the Refugee Crisis and Taking Inspiration From Scorsese."
We are very excited to open Jacques Audiard's DHEEPAN this Friday at the Royal and May 20th at the Playhouse 7 and Town Center 5. Winner of the Palme d’Or at last year's Cannes Film Festival, Audiard's (The Beat that My Heart Skipped, Rust and Bone, A Prophet) latest is a gripping, human, and timely tale of survival in which three Sri Lankan refugees pose as a family to flee their war-ravaged homeland for France, only to find themselves embroiled in violence in the Parisian suburbs.

Just in time for Passover, STREIT'S: MATZO AND THE AMERICAN DREAM Opens at the Music Hall and Town Center on April 20
In the heart of New York’s rapidly gentrifying Lower East Side stand four tenement buildings that have housed the Streit’s Matzo factory since 1925. An iconic New York institution and a fifth generation family business, the Streit’s factory and the Streit family itself have long held firmly to tradition, churning flour and water into matzos through ovens as old as the factory itself. Though the factory seems a century removed from the world around it, even Streit’s is not immune to the forces that challenge manufacturing and family businesses everywhere. Streit's: Matzo and the American Dream is a story of tradition, of resistance and resi [...]
