Electric Avenue: The 80s MTV Experience
 

Electric Avenue show is a high energy space that reminds people of a time when they came home from school, put a record on, and listened with open ears and an open heart; conjuring first dates, first cars, prom nights, weekend movies, and meeting friends at the mall, while finding a sense of fashion and an identity all their own. At an Electric Avenue show, 80’s music is as alive and well today as it has ever been.

Amulet 

a film by Romola Garai

Written and directed by Romola Garai, AMULET explores the story of Tomaz, an ex-soldier from an unnamed foreign conflict, living in strained circumstances in London. Haunted by his past, he is offered a place to stay in a decaying, claustrophobic house, inhabited by an enigmatic young woman and her dying mother. As he starts to fall for his new companion, Tomaz cannot ignore his suspicion that something insidious might also be living alongside them. 

 

Immediately following the film there will be a pre-recorded discussion between filmmaker Romola Garai and The Future of Film is Female’s Caryn Coleman. This conversation is exclusive to virtual cinema and in-theater engagements.

Run Time: 1h 39m

COLLECTIVE

Monday, Nov. 30 @ 7:00 PM

In 2015, a fire at Bucharest's Colectiv club leaves 27 dead and 180 injured. Soon, more burn victims begin dying in hospitals from wounds that were not life-threatening. Then a doctor blows the whistle to a team of investigative journalists. One revelation leads to another as the journalists start to uncover vast health care fraud. When a new health minister is appointed, he offers unprecedented access to his efforts to reform the corrupt system but also to the obstacles he faces. Following journalists, whistle-blowers, burn victims, and government officials, Collective is an uncompromising look at the impact of investigative journalism at its best.

Our HVAC system is equipped with HEPA filters and our restrooms are sanitized.  Concessions will be available with individually pre-sealed popcorn and the usual beverages.
