Deadpool 2

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Miami's hottest bartender, while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor - finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World's Best Lover.

 

Colin Covert  Minneapolis Sun-Times:  "If you love films that keep you guessing, laughing and surprised on the edge of your seat, this is a must-see."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:   "Despite a tendency toward elephantitis in story and scope, not to mention blatant franchise pandering, Deadpool 2 still plays like the runt of the comic-book litter. We mean that as a compliment."

 

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "Deadpool 2 is wicked, dark fun from start to finish, with some twisted and very funny special effects, cool production elements, terrific ensemble work -- and for dessert, perhaps the best end-credits "cookie" scene ever."

First Reformed

Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence. From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver; American Gigolo; Affliction) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary.

 

Colin Covert  Minneapolis Star Tribune:  ""First Reformed" is a miracle in its own regard, the rare type of film that leaves us with questions left to answer and for many, a desire to dig into it deeper through a second viewing."

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  "It is an exquisite piece of filmmaking and also a blunt, pulpy instrument, a despairing, fully sustained howl of a movie that is easily this director's finest work in years."

 

Godfrey Cheshire  RogerEbert.com:  "A stunning, enrapturing film, a crowning work by one of the American cinema's most essential artists."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "Paul Schrader offers one of the year's best movies-a faith-in-crisis powerhouse about a pastor -Ethan Hawke hitting a new career peak-who is politically awakened by an eco-activist and a new kind of love."

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)   JULY 15

 

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.
