David Crosby: Remember My Name

Director: A.J. Eaton
 
2019 / 95 min. / DCP
 
 

A revealing and deeply personal documentary exploring the life and creative renaissance of music icon David Crosby. A cultural force for over fifty years, Crosby faced an uncertain future after the 2015 dissolution of Crosby, Stills and Nash. Seeking out younger musicians and recording a pair of critically-praised new albums, Crosby now sets out to make a mark in a world so different from the generation he helped define in the 60s. With unflinching honesty, self-examination, and an unshakable belief in family and the transformative nature of music, Crosby shares his often-challenging journey with humor and bite.

Join us for Art House Theater Day 2019, where we come together to celebrate indie theaters as advocates for culture and community. At a time when media has become more digital than tangible, more solitary than social, art house theaters are where film lovers gather to encounter new ideas and creative filmmaking! Giveaways, prizes, and more await you on this special evening!

New 50th Anniversary restoration! An unforgettable masterpiece of late 60s counterculture, Robert Downey Sr.’s Putney Swope remains a vital provocation on race, pop culture, and America.

Putney Swope, the only African-American exec at his firm, is unexpectedly elected its president and turns the industry on its ear through a series of outrageous, taboo-busting TV commercials, strewn throughout the film like comedic landmines. As Swope becomes the Generalissimo of Madison Avenue, Downey takes no prisoners and skewers the entire political spectrum. Essential viewing.

Restoration by the Academy Film Archive and The Film Foundation with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation.

Join us for Art House Theater Day 2019, where we come together to celebrate indie theaters as advocates for culture and community. At a time when media has become more digital than tangible, more solitary than social, art house theaters are where film lovers gather to encounter new ideas and creative filmmaking! Giveaways, prizes, and more await you on this special evening!

A lonely woman (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), recently separated from her husband, visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, artery-red gown—which, in time, will come to unleash a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone who comes into its path.

From acclaimed horror director Peter Strickland comes a truly nightmarish film, at turns frightening, seductive, and darkly humorous. Channeling voyeuristic fantasies of high fashion and bloodshed, In Fabric is Strickland’s most twisted and brilliantly original vision yet.
