The spectacular sculptures and paintings of Michelangelo seem so familiar to us, but what do we really know about this renaissance genius? Who was this ambitious and passionate man? A virtuoso craftsman, Michelangelo’s artistry is evident in everything he touched. Beautiful and diverse works such as the towering statue of David, the deeply moving Pietà in the Papal Basilica of St. Peter and his tour-de-force, the Sistine Chapel ceiling still leave us breathless today. Spanning his 89 years, Michelangelo – Love and Death, takes a cinematic journey from the print and drawing rooms of Europe, through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican to explore the tempestuous life of Michelangelo. We go in search of a greater understanding of this most charismatic figure, his relationship with his contemporaries and his valuable artistic legacy. Through expert commentary and Michelangelo’s own words, this film takes a fresh look at an enigmatic man whose life is celebrated in every mark and every stroke he made. A giant artistic force and universally loved, discover why Michelangelo is without a doubt one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time.item55

Filmed in Japan, France and the UK, the film focuses on Hokusai’s work, life and times in the highly developed urban culture of Edo (modern Tokyo) in the early 1800s. Using extraordinary close-ups and groundbreaking ultra HD 8K video technology, Hokusai’s paintings and prints are examined by world experts including Exhibition Curator Tim Clark and Roger Keyes, whose 90-volume catalogue raisonné is being digitised. Hokusai spent his life celebrating and studying our common humanity as well as exploring the natural and spiritual worlds, using the famous volcano Mount Fuji as a talisman of immortality. He knew much tragedy, was once struck by lightning and lived for years in poverty, but never gave up his constant search for perfection in his art. As Japan emerged from isolation, Hokusai found recognition in the west. The Great Wave and other works changed modern art, inspiring artists from Monet, Van Gogh and Picasso to Hockney and Baselitz. Hokusai is the only artist with an emoji, the father of manga, and still a vital inspiration to artists today.item45

The Journey
Opens Friday, July 7

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

THE JOURNEY is the gripping account of how two men from opposite sides of the political spectrum came together to change the course of history. In 2006, amidst the ongoing, decades-long conflict in Northern Ireland, representatives from the two warring factions meet for negotiations. In one corner is Ian Paisley (Timothy Spall), the deeply conservative British loyalist; in the other is Martin McGuinness (Colm Meaney), a former Irish Republican Army leader who has devoted his life to the cause of Irish reunification. Opposites in every way, the two men at first seem to have little chance of ever finding common ground. But over the course of an impromptu, detour-filled car ride through the Scottish countryside, each begins to see the other less as an enemy, and more as an individual—a breakthrough that promises to at last bring peace to the troubled region. Driven by two virtuoso central performances, The Journey is a more-relevant-than-ever reminder of how simple humanity can overcome political division. John Hurt costars.item65

Nominated for five 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Falsettos is a hilarious and poignant look at a modern family revolving around the life of a gay man Marvin, his wife, his lover, his soon-to-be-bar-mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. Originally created under the specter of the AIDS crisis, this timely musical about middle class family dynamics manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion.

Block, Andrew Rannells, and Brandon Uranowitz, all of whom received Tony nominations for their respective performances. item23

Opens Friday, July 14

It's 2015, seventeen years after Peggy tripped over G.W.’s wooden legs and died in Sordid Lives, and life has moved into the present for the residents of Winters, Texas. Sissy Hickey (Dale Dickey) is reading the Bible, cover to cover, trying to make some kind of sense out of what it really says about gay people. Her niece Latrelle Williamson (Bonnie Bedelia) has divorced her husband Wilson (Michael MacRae) who has taken up with a hot young gold digger (Katherine Bailess). Latrelle’s now out and proud gay son Ty (Kirk Geiger) is on his way back to town with his black man (T. Ashanti Mozelle) and news of their own. Her sister LaVonda (Ann Walker) is still cussin’ and drankin’ and is being blackmailed to sit with the sick and afflicted. LaVonda’s best friend Noleta (Caroline Rhea) meets a hot younger man (Aleks Paunovic) while visiting her awful mama (Carole Cook) in the hospital. G.W. (David Steen), sporting new fiberglass legs after Noleta burned his old ones, is still feeling guilty and mourning Peggy. Nearly incoherent barfly Juanita (Sarah Hunley) has moved from her obsession with Vacation Bible School roosters to the royal family while Wardell (Newell Alexander) and Odell (David Cowgill) still bicker at the bar. Tammy Wynette champion Brother Boy (Leslie Jordan) hasn't been back to Winters since Peggy’s funeral, and he's working at a tragic little gay bar in Longview, having added Loretta and Dolly to his new medley act "We Three Queens of Oper-y Are" till a chance meeting with a dangerous criminal (Emerson Collins) forces him out on the run.

Imelda Staunton headlines a powerhouse British cast in a new production of Edward Albee’s landmark play. In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha (Staunton, Vera Drake), much to her husband George's (Conleth Hill, Game of Thrones) displeasure, has invited the new professor (Luke Treadaway) and his wife (Imogen Poots) to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha's toxic games.

"Revelatory. A nigh-perfect interpretation. Woolf is one play I thought I'd seen enough of for now. But this version, directed by James Macdonald and starring a ravishingly well matched Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill, harrowed and moved me as if I were encountering the show for the first time."

Jonas Kaufmann makes his role debut as Otello in Keith Warner's new production of Verdi's thrilling Shakespeare-inspired opera, conducted by Antonio Pappano. Iago sows the seeds of jealousy in Otello's mind, fabricating a story of an affair between Iago's rival Cassio and Otello's young wife Desdemona. Iago's trickery cements Otello's suspicion into mistaken certainty. Otello is Verdi's final tragedy. After astonishing productivity in his early career, the composer slowed in later life; more than fifteen years separate Otello and its predecessor, Aida. As the latest utterance from the master of Italian opera, the 1887 premiere was an instant success — but, more than that, Otello has been an important part of the international opera repertory ever since. item4

A real-life international thriller, CITY OF GHOSTS exposes a new type of warfare: a battle for the hearts and minds, a conflict over clicks and views. Captivating in its intimacy, this documentary that follows the efforts of "Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently," a handful of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by ISIS in 2014. With deeply personal access, this is the story of a brave group of citizen journalists as they face the realities of life undercover, on the run, and in exile, risking their lives to stand up against one of the greatest evils in the world today.item63

Watch the Royal Ballet at their most luminous in a magnificent programof three short ballets by founding choreographer Frederick Ashton. The Dream, Symphonic Variation and Marguerite and Armand are three of the Royal Ballet’s best-love legacy pieces and are characterized by Ashton’s precise, fleet footwork and sensuous upper-body movements making a gorgeous line of delicate simplicity. The Dream is a delightful interpretation of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. The piece captures the comic confusions of Shakespeare’s play with the high-spirited misadventures of the two pairs of mortal lovers combined with the humorous cavorting of Bottom, played by a male dancer who dances en pointe. Felix Mendelssohn’s witty, and famous score, is the perfect partner for the charming choreography. Symphonic Variations is a seminal piece of Ashton’s repertoire. A masterpiece on the beauty of pure movement, it was the first work Ashton created for the Company when they moved to the Covent Garden stage after WWII. Created for just six dancers, the choreography quickens and slows, whilst retaining a sense of serenity and spaciousness. Ashton created Marguerite and Armand for the celebrated partnership of Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev. A passionate ballet, it tells the story of Marguerite, a Parisian courtesan, who lies on her deathbed. She recalls her tragic love affair with Armand in a series of feverish flashbacks. The powerful pas des deux and the score set to Franz Liszt’s famous Piano Sonata in B Minor, will ensure there is not a dry eye in the cinema. item10

Harold & Lillian:
A Hollywood Love Story
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

A fascinating and moving account of the romantic and creative partnership of storyboard artist Harold Michelson and film researcher Lillian Michelson: two unsung heroes of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Harold and Lillian worked on hundreds of renowned films including The Ten Commandments, The Apartment, The Birds, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate, Rosemary’s Baby, Fiddler On The Roof, Scarface, Full Metal Jacket and many more. Although the couple was responsible for some of Hollywood’s most iconic examples of visual storytelling, their contributions remain largely uncredited. Through an engaging mix of love letters, film clips and candid conversations with Harold and Lillian, Danny DeVito, Mel Brooks, Francis Ford Coppola and others, this deeply engaging documentary from Academy Award®-nominated director Daniel Raim chronicles their remarkable marriage and extraordinary careers through six decades of movie-making history.item49
