Wonder Woman

An Amazon princess (Gal Gadot) finds her idyllic life on an island occupied only by female warriors interrupted when a pilot (Chris Pine) crash-lands nearby. After rescuing him, she learns that World War I is engulfing the planet, and vows to use her superpowers to restore peace. Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster).

 

Joe Morganstern  Wall Street Journal:  "The moviegoing world deserves the best that Hollywood can deliver, and this time we've pretty much got it."

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  "Director Patty Jenkins and her collaborators have taken the well-worn superhero origin story and invested it with a rich, sometimes revelatory depth of feeling."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "Gal Gadot is unstoppable and spectacular to see in motion. Watch her fly."

Transformers: The Last Knight

 

The Transformers leap into action once more in this sequel from Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay.

 

Colin Covert  Minneapolis Star-Tribune:  The kind of dramatic structure James Cameron used in his masterful Terminator films is an unknown language to Bay. But he knows how to rev, whir, snap and destroy like an ace.

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  Bay's visual sensibility has, if anything, matured, to the point of demanding and earning your exasperated surrender. He has a peerless command of the imaginative excesses of the Hollywood blockbuster.

 

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer Score:  15%

 

 

MOVIE:  DISNEYNATURE - BORN IN CHINA

Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday   July 25, 26 & 27   (5 PM)

 

Disneynature Born In China

 

Disneynature's new True Life Adventure film "Born In China" takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard--an elusive animal rarely caught on camera--faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China's vast terrain--from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest--on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together.

 

Justin Lowe  Hollywood Reporter:  "If all of the over-emoting can be ignored, Born in China delivers gorgeous visuals in its close-up perspective on some of the world's rarest wildlife species, as well as the imposing habitats they call home."

 

Rafer Guzman  Newsday:  "Heavy on the cute-and-cuddly, but beautifully filmed throughout."

Classes Every Saturday (11am & 12am)

 

CapoeiraCapoeira is an interactive game of martial arts and acrobatic dance accompanied by live music. Created four centuries ago by African slaves in the country of Brazil, it is believed that capoeira practitioners disguised this dynamic art form as dance and play in order to conceal it’s more lethal martial arts and self defense techniques. Students will learn attacks, escapes, acrobatics, strength and conditioning, music instruments, songs in Brazilian-Portuguese, history and self-confidence. Classes are geared for beginners and taught by Mario “Castanho” Hill, an 11-yr. practitioner of capoeira with United Capoeira Association.
Classes: Saturdays - Kids Capoeira (ages 7-12), 11am -12pm; Teen/Adult Capoeira, 12 -1:30pm.

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)   JULY 16

 

Come and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event by DJ Rajasick.

Ecstatic Dance is a place to dance “from the inside out” and connect with like-minded people of all ages in a safe and non-judgmental space. Given the large amount of people that may show up to the event and the nature of our free-form movement, for liability purposes this dance is open to anyone aged 13 years or older only.

In its most basic definition it is free-form movement/dance inspired by music, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the grace or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance as if nobody is watching! It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation that develops a direct body-spirit connection. Let your body and inner guide be your teachers.

No dance experience or partner is necessary. It's a perfect outlet for those who think they can't dance and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is also not a social dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and really push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines:
1. Move however you wish.
2. No talking on the dance floor or altar - low whispers off the floor please.
3. No shoes on the dance floor.
4. Water breaks to be taken off the dance floor.
