The Hundred-Foot Journey playing in Theater 1
August 15 - 28 at 4:30 & 7:00 pm
In "The Hundred-Foot Journey," Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant - the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award (R)-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments - until Hassan's passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory's enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory's culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan's gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.
Length: 2 hour 2 minutes
Language: English, French & Hindi with English subtitles
Boyhood playing in Theater 2
August 15 - 28 at 4:30 & 7:30 pm
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.
Length: 2 hour 45 minutes

A Night of Food & Film -
From Billions to None: The Passenger Pigeon’s Flight to Extinction
Explore this iconic bird’s presence in 17th-century Plymouth, its current relevance to habitat and species conservation successes, and sustainable use of natural resources.
Stay for a post-film discussion with the film’s co-writer and co-producer Joel Greenberg and a panel of bird conservation leaders and historians. Before the film, enjoy a reception of seasonal artisan culinary delights inspired by the Passenger Pigeon, locally sourced beer and wines, and a special signature drink.

About The Film: From Billions to None: The Passenger Pigeon’s Flight to Extinction is a dramatic documentary film that is the keystone of the ambitious multi-media project that uses the passenger pigeon story, of a billions-to-zero extermination in less than 50 years, to explore important present day issues. The centenary of this recent extinction offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for this film to sharply focus new attention on habitat conservation and species survival—and help all species avoid the fate of the passenger pigeon.

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists' claims. Persuaded by his friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Côte d'Azur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman named Stanley Taplinger in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Emma Stone) who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). Sophie arrived at the Catledge villa at the invitation of Grace, who is convinced that Sophie can help her contact her late husband, and once there, attracted the attention of Brice, who has fallen for her head over heels. What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word and send the characters reeling. In the end, the biggest trick MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT plays is the one that fools us all.
