MOVIE:   LEGO BATMAN MOVIE

 

TUESDAY & THURSDAY   MARCH 28 & 30    (5 PM)

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made "The LEGO (R) Movie" a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble - LEGO Batman - stars in his own big-screen adventure: "The LEGO (R) Batman Movie." But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "The Lego Batman Movie, animated with love and lunacy, is the funniest Caped Crusader movie ever."

 

Richaard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "I'll take Lively Plastic Animation over Wooden Live Action any day."

 

Owen Glieberman  Variety:  "Your average Pixar comedy thumbs its nose at a great many things, but "The Lego Batman Movie" is a helter-skelter lampoon in the daftly exhilarating spirit of Mad magazine and the "Naked Gun" films."

MOVIE:   SILENCE    R    (Scorsese)

TUESDAY & THURSDAY   MARCH 28 & 30   (7:00 PM)

Martin Scorsese's SILENCE tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) - at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden. The celebrated director's 28-year journey to bring Shusaku Endo's 1966 acclaimed novel to life

 

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "What beauty. What brutality. What madness."

 

Colin Colvert  Minneapolis Star Tribune:  "It works on more than one level, taking you on a far greater emotional journey and leaving you with more food for thought than any genre film in memory."

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  "This anguished, contemplative new movie, which [Scorsese] spent nearly three decades coaxing into celluloid reality, carries the weight of a career summation."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "No one with a genuine belief in the possibilities and mysteries of cinema would think of missing Silence. It's essential filmmaking from the church of Scorsese, a modern master who lives and breathes in the images he puts on screen."

CONCERT:  BARAKA MOON   Ecstatic Global Grooves

WEDNESDAY   MARCH 29   (7PM)      $15 ADMISSION

 

 

Direct from San Francisco   BARAKA MOON  ECSTATIC GLOBAL TRANCE GROOVES

 
 Based in The San Francisco Bay Area and bringing together global citizens with origins in Pakistan, the UK, Canada and the USA  Baraka Moon's all original music ignites from ancient Qawaali Sufi trance songs, Indian classical ragas, Middle Eastern overtones and African drums & percussion, plus the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo and brings all those influences together into an uplifting and resonant whole -  spiritually charged and soulful dance music with a positive message of peace for the whole world! 
 
 Baraka is the Sufi word for blessing. Charismatic and passionate vocalist Sukhawat Ali Khan fronts Baraka Moon performing on the harmonium and drawing from his luminary family's 600 years of vocal tradition with a voice that comes straight from the heart, while didjeridu virtuoso Stephen Kent, a globally acclaimed pioneer in bringing the ancient Aboriginal instrument to the contemporary world, plows a deep earthy groove and shakes it down together with Peter Warren's driving drums as Anastasi Mavrides paints singing constellations with his shimmering guitar. Open your soul and sing your heart! Even the gods are dancing and smiling!!!
 
Formed on the night of a blood moon eclipse Baraka Moon brings together a unique and ecstatic combination of traditional and contemporary Pakistani and Indian music with the Australian Aboriginal Didjeridu, combining them with an afro-funking blues rhythm section that whirls the frenzied crowd into the stratosphere!

Get Out

Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

 

Joe Morganstern  Wall Street Journal:  "A memorable horror flick if ever there was one, Get Out starts with a great title and a promising idea -- a black man's fear as he walks at night down a street in an affluent white suburb. Then it delivers on that promise with explosive brilliance."

 

Colin Colvert  Minneapolis Star Tribune:  "Brace yourself; this is upscale, darkly polished work. Peele takes the fright film beyond a clinical exercise in spookery and into strikingly original territory."

 

Anne Hornaday  Washington Post:  "The shocks and the laughs are thoroughly entertaining, but it's the truth of "Get Out" that's so real."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "A jolt-a-minute horrorshow laced with racial tension and stinging satirical wit. How is one movie all that? See Get Out, from debuting director Jordan Peele (one half of the comic team of Key and Peele), and get woke."

John Wick: Chapter 2

In this next chapter following the 2014 hit, legendary hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins' guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world's deadliest killers.

 

Stephanie Zacharek  Time Magazine:  "The pleasures of John Wick: Chapter 2 may be even greater than those of its predecessor-itself a symphonic achievement in scrappy, balls-out, action filmmaking ..."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "Chapter 2, with Keanu Reeves at his absolute best, is the real deal in action-movie fireworks - it's pure cinema, an adrenaline rocket of image and sound that explodes on contact."

 

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "Who would have guessed Keanu Reeves' stoic, black-clad, one-man killing machine would become THE go-to bad guy/action hero of the 2010s?"

Classes are geared for beginners and taught by Mario “Castanho” Hill, an 11-yr. practitioner of capoeira with United Capoeira Association.

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)   FEBRUARY 19

 

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.
