Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
 
Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) share the screen in this Warner Bros./DC Entertainment co-production penned by David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio, and directed by Zack Snyder. Amy Adams and Diane Lane return as Lois Lane and Martha Kent, respectively.    PG-13
 
Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:   "When it sings, Dawn of Justice is a wonder. When it drags, it still looks good and offers hints of a better scene just around the corner."
 
Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:   "Snyder, juiced up by Hans Zimmer's caffeinated score, throws everything at the screen until resistance is futile."
 
Lou Loumenic  New York Post:  "Constantly threatening to collapse from self-seriousness, this epic has way too much of everything, including CGI and Oscar winners up the wazoo."
 
 
MOVIE:   THE DIVERGENT SERIES:  ALLEGIANT   PG-13

 Thursday  April  28    (7:30 PM)

After the earth-shattering revelations of INSURGENT, Tris (Shailene Woodley) must escape with Four (Theo James) and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. For the first time ever, they will leave the only city and family they have ever known. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless with the revelation of shocking new truths. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.   PG-13
 
Mike LaSalle   San Francisco Chronicle:  "Except in the highly visual or action sequences, Robert Schwentke's direction has a peculiar quality, in which you can almost hear him yelling "Action" and "Cut."
 
Peter Travers   Rolling Stone:  "egregiously padded piffle"

The Witch
 
In this exquisitely made and terrifying new horror film, the age-old concepts of witchcraft, black magic and possession are innovatively brought together to tell the intimate and riveting story of one family's frightful unraveling in the New England wilderness circa 1630. New England, 1630. Upon threat of banishment by the church, an English farmer leaves his colonial plantation, relocating his wife and five children to a remote plot of land on the edge of an ominous forest - within which lurks an unknown evil. Strange and unsettling things begin to happen almost immediately - animals turn malevolent, crops fail, and one child disappears as another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, family members accuse teenage daughter Thomasin of witchcraft, charges she adamantly denies. As circumstances grow more treacherous, each family member's faith, loyalty and love become tested in shocking and unforgettable ways. Writer/director Robert Eggers' debut feature, which premiered to great acclaim at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival - winning the Best Director Prize in the U.S. Narrative Competition - painstakingly recreates a God-fearing New England decades before the 1692 Salem witch trials, in which religious convictions tragically turned to mass hysteria. Told through the eyes of the adolescent Thomasin - in a star-making turn by newcomer Anya Taylor-Joy - and supported by mesmerizing camera work and a powerful musical score, THE WITCH is a chilling and groundbreaking new take on the genre.   RATED  R
 
David Sims   The Atlantic:  "The movie's first-time director, Robert Eggers, blends authenticity with black magic, and the result is giddying.
 
Scott Tobias   NPR:  "The Witch immediately joins the pantheon of great horror movies, with the caveat that it's just barely a horror movie at all.
 
Joe Morganstern  Wall Street Journal:   "This phenomenal debut feature by Robert Eggers has a singular style and tone, and its horror flows from the deepest wellsprings of human nature."
 
 
 HONOKAA HIGH SCHOOL JAZZ BAND
Saturday,  April 30   (7 PM)

As always Gary Washburn's amazing High School Jazz Band, fresh off its tour of the islands, will be a highlight of the Honokaa People's Theatre performance schedule.  This is the group which gave rise to Gary's recognition with a Grammy Award several years ago.  But if any of the previous performances over the years are an indicator, this Jazz Band just keeps getting better and better.  

MOVIE:   RACE     PG-13

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday   May 3, 4 and 5    (5 PM)

Sunday, Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday   May 8, 10, 11 and 12   (7 PM)

Race

Race is based on the incredible true story of Jesse Owens, the legendary athletic superstar whose quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler's vision of Aryan supremacy. Race is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man's fight to become an Olympic legend.

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "Director Stephen Hopkins plods when he needs to sprint, but Jesse Owens is a great movie subject. His triumph at the 1936 Olympics left Hitler to suck it up and watch a black man shatter his cuckoo theories of an Aryan master race.

Steven Holden  New York Times:  ""Race" reminds us that long before television elevated black sports heroes into gods, there were athletes like Jesse Owens who paved the way."

 ECSTATIC DANCE

Sunday May 15  (4:30-6:30pm$7 at the door suggested donation

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.

 CAPOERIA AGUA DE BEBER
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.
