SATURDAY, SUNDAY, WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY     MAY 25, 26, 29 & 30    (5 PM)

 

 

Apollo 11 is a cinematic space event film fifty years in the making. Featuring never-before-seen large-format film footage of one of humanity's greatest accomplishments.

 

Chris Nashawaty  Entertainment Weekly:  "The NASA mission at the heart of the must-see documentary Apollo 11 reminds you what it feels to be truly awestruck."

 

David Fear  Rolling Stone:  "This doesn't just feel like a movie. It gives you the sensation that you've been transported right into the middle of history."

 

Glenn Kenny  New York Times:  "Entirely awe-inspiring."

 

G. Allen Johnson  San Francisco Chronicle:  "The mission was indeed a giant leap for mankind, and now we have a documentary worthy of its subject."

 

Kenneth Turan  Los Angeles Times:  "Witness "Apollo 11."

 

ROTTEN TOMATOES  TOMATOMETER SCORE:  98%

 

 

  MOVIE:   AQUAMAN  PG-13     

 

SATURDAY, SUNDAY, WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY     MAY 25, 26, 29 &30    (7 PM)

 

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, "Aquaman," starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime--one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be... a king.

 

Stephanie Zacherek  Time Magazine:  "Aquaman isn't all dumb fighting and arguing among sea-guys. The movie's biggest selling points are its affable, bear-hug spirit and its lavish, loopy visuals."

 

Sam Adams  Slate:  "There are parts of Aquaman that are so wonderfully strange that it's astonishing to see them in a franchise blockbuster."

 

Matt Zoller Seitz  RogerEbert.com:  "For all its wild spectacle and cartoon cleverness, this is a quietly subversive movie, and an evolutionary step forward for the genre."

 

Katie Walsh  Tribune News Service:  ""Aquaman" is pure camp, wildly entertaining and an eye-popping spectacle. You have to admire the effort, scope and sheer audacity of everyone involved."

 

Rotten Tomatoes  Tomatometer Score:  65%

 

 

MOVIE:  ENEMY WITHIN          

TO BE ANNOUNCED

 

 

 
When a Japanese pilot crash-lands on the tiny remote Hawaiian island of Ni'ihau, he is met with courtesy and traditional Hawaiian hospitality from the locals - until they discover he was part of the recent attack on Pearl Harbor. Based on a True Story.
 
Based on this incredible true story from 1941, ENEMY WITHIN is an intelligent and bold character-driven historical action/drama/thriller that’s not only entertaining, but its themes also focus on human dynamics, cultural assimilation, and the desire to do right by people, regardless of their race, colour, creed, or nationality.
 
The film was written/directed by BAFTA nominated Gabriel Robertson, shot by renowned BREAKING BAD cinematographer Peter Reniers, and has screened for the families of the real people involved in the Niʻihau Incident and received their blessing.  One of the breakout cast who is incredible in the picture is Beulah Koale who recently joined HAWAIʻI FIVE-0 as Junior Reigns, and the rest of the cast is mostly made up of Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders and Japanese - really representing the culture and diversity of the Hawaiian islands.

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)  JUNE 16

 

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

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.
