Despicable Me 3

Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters-Margo, Edith and Agnes-and the Minions in Despicable Me 3.

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "Steve Carell doubles your fun in Despicable Me 3 - voicing feuding twin bros. Carell is the life of the party and the main reason this animated blast of slapstick silliness packs appeal beyond the PG crowd."

 

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer Score:  63%

Saturday & Sunday   September 16 & 17  (7 PM)

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power

A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes-in moments private and public, funny and poignant-as he pursues the empowering notion that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.

 

Joe Morganstern  Wall Street Journal:  "Eleven years after An Inconvenient Truth Mr. Gore remains a prodigy of hope, with energy that seems endlessly renewable."

 

Kenneth Turan  Los Angeles Times:  "[An] involving and unexpectedly passionate film ..."

 

Charles Taylor  Newsweek:  "The movie is a piece of advocacy, and it succeeds at that: The conclusive science presented is powerful evidence that there is only one side to this story."

Atomic Blonde

A high-stakes, global action-thriller that takes place in the city of Berlin, on the eve of the Wall's collapse and the shifting of superpower alliances. Charlize Theron ("Mad Max: Fury Road") portrays Lorraine Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, who is dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown. She is ordered to cooperate with Berlin station chief David Percival (James McAvoy of "X-Men"), and the two form an uneasy alliance, unleashing their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardizes the West's entire intelligence operation.

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  "Atomic Blonde" may be a delirious exercise in outré nonsense, but it can also be a brutally effective action picture when the inspiration strikes."

 

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "The visuals in Atomic Blonde pop right off the screen. Leitch periodically zooms in for tight close-ups of the stunning Theron, who conveys a world of emotions with a subtle movement of the eyes."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "Theron, who did most of her own martial-arts stunts, is pure bruising poetry in motion. She's a stone-cold badass. How can you resist?"

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, based on the ground-breaking comic book series which inspired a generation of artists, writers and filmmakers. In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha-an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

 

Bilge Ebiri  Village Voice:  "Valerian is at times so mind-meltingly beautiful and strange that I'm still not sure I didn't just dream it all."

 

Peter Sobczynski  RogerEbert.com:  "An utter delight and one of the most gorgeous fantasies to hit the screen in recent memory-the kind of film that can take moviegoers logy from the usual array of craptaculars and render them absolutely giddy with its pure fun."

 

Liz Braun  Toronto Sun:  "Much is wrong with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, but just looking at this thing is such an astonishing trip that you'll hardly notice."

 

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer Score:  50%

 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.
