Beatriz at Dinner

July 21-22, 7 pm:
BEATRIZ AT DINNER

­­

It’s impolite to bring up politics at the dinner table, but in Miguel Arteta’s Beatriz at Dinner it’s the main course. Heralded by some as a biting allegory for the Trump era, the moody dinnertime satire could just as easily be a darkling counterpart to the old Peter Sellers film The Party. Featuring Salma Hayek as the titular Beatriz, the film catapults the hapless immigrant and massage therapist into the world of the rich but conspicuously not famous when her car breaks down and her wealthy friend asks her to stay for dinner with her equally wealthy colleagues.

Cast: Salma Hayek, Chloë Sevigny, Connie Britton, John Lithgow
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Directed By: Miguel Arteta
Written By: Mike White
Runtime: 83 minutes
Rated R

Florence Foster Jenkins

Everyone,
The movie for Sept. 9&10 is Florence Foster Jenkins

This film tells the inspirational true story of a New York heiress, Florence, who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world it was hilariously awful. At private recitals, her devoted husband and manager, St Clair Bayfield, managed to protect Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give her first public concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall, St Clair realized he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew.

Actors: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Helberg, & Nina Arianda.
