Now Showing and Upcoming Films
20th Century Women
Set in Santa Barbara in the seventies, 20th Century Women follows Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening), a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie’s upbringing — via Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields’ home, and Julie (Elle Fanning), a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor. 20th Century Women is a poignant love letter by filmmaker Mike Mills (Beginners) to his mom and family. (R, 118 mins)
"The movie belongs wholeheartedly to Bening, and to the age, come and gone, that she enshrines." – Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
"20th Century Women is irreducible, too, although certain adjectives and adverbs do leap to mind: generous, reflective, absolutely delightful." – David Edelstein, New York Magazine

Linguistics professor Louise Banks (Amy Adams) leads an elite team of investigators when gigantic spaceships touch down in 12 locations around the world.

Hoping to unravel the mystery, she takes a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly all of mankind. (PG-13, 118 mins)
"Villeneuve has crafted a movie akin to `Close Encounters of the Third Kind`: an imaginative, escapist what-if scenario overlaid with semi-profound questions about fate, loss and the meaning of love." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"This is precisely the kind of science-fiction movie, at once epic and intimate, that Interstellar tried (and failed) to be." - Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
