Ready Player One

Directed by Stephen Spielberg.  In the year 2045, people can escape their harsh reality in the OASIS, an immersive virtual world where you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone-the only limits are your own imagination. OASIS creator James Halliday left his immense fortune and control of the Oasis to the winner of a contest designed to find a worthy heir. When unlikely hero Wade Watts conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends-known as the High Five-are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS and their world.

 

Richar Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "If Ready Player One had been directed by a 26-year-old, the movie world would be flipping out over the new visionary on the map."

 

James Berardinelli  ReelViews:  "It is without a question one of the year's most energetic, visually rewarding, and ultimately exhausting motion pictures."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "For those looking for Ready Player One to condemn the digi-verse as a destructive force against human connection, find another movie. Spielberg's mindbending joyride won't quit even when the head-spinning spectacle hits sensory overload. Game on."

 

Bob Mondello  NPR:   "The plot's not going to tax anyone over the age of 12, but Spielberg crams the screen with visuals eye-popping enough to make viewers not care ."

MOVIE:   PACIFIC RIM UPRISING

 

WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY    APRIL 18 & 19   (7 PM)

 

FRIDAY & SUNDAY    APRIL 20 & 22     (5 PM)

Pacific Rim Uprising

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity's victory against the monstrous "Kaiju." Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father's legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)-who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

 

Michael Gingold  Time Out:  "The final act is a delirious sugar rush of city-smashing spectacle. It's generic but 'Uprising' kicks the metal of any of the 'Transformers' films."

 

Glenn Kenny  New York Times:  "As sequels to sci-fi action thrillers showcasing giant metallic fighters go, "Pacific Rim Uprising" is adroit and enjoyable.

 

Mark Kennedy  Associated Press:  ""Pacific Rim Uprising" is a visually-stunning, expertly crafted dose of cheer-at-the-screen fun. It's the definition of what a blockbuster sequel should be."

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)   APRIL 15

 

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.
