In October 1965, The Beatles were faced with an impossible task— produce a new album of original music for a Christmas release. Within one month, The Beatles had emerged with what many consider to be one of their greatest albums — Rubber Soul.  They even had time to create a double A-side single, We Can Work It Out backed by Day Tripper. Both sides of the single, as well as the album, hit number one on the charts.
In Deconstructing The Beatles’ Rubber Soul, composer/producer Scott Freiman walks Beatles fans young and old through the creation of Rubber Soul. Learn the stories behind the creation of Norwegian Wood, In My Life, Nowhere Man, and other classic Beatles songs. Mr. Freiman conducts an educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions.

An exhausted, workaholic actress, Anna Baskin, 44, abruptly extricates herself from a successful but mind-numbing TV role, returning to her past life in New York to reinvent herself. But despite the desire for transformation, she cannot find herself outside of her career. When an upsetting personal betrayal unexpectedly leads to the role of her life, she must confront the reality of her past relationships in order to clear a path forward. The intimate story of Anna and her friends Isaac and Kate become magnified by the film’s surrounding themes: gentrification, addiction, autoimmune disease, burnout, sexism in the film industry and 21st century marketing of the self.

Winner of the Grand Jury Documentary prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Syrian filmmaker Fayyad and Danish co-director Johannessen’s breathtaking work – a searing example of boots-on-the-ground reportage – follows the efforts of the internationally recognized White Helmets, an organization comprised of ordinary citizens who are the first to rush towards explosions in the hope of saving lives. Incorporating moments of both heart-pounding suspense and improbable beauty, the documentary draws us into the lives of three of its founders – Khalid, Subhi and Mahmoud – as they grapple with the chaos around them and struggle with an ever-present dilemma: do they flee with their families or stay and fight for their country. A gripping portrait of extraordinary bravery, Last Men in Aleppo provides a stirring new perspective on a conflict reshaping our world.

“[Demands] to be reckoned with. There is no denying the cumulative power of the material, in large part due the protagonists’ endless reservoirs of humanity, dignity and selflessness in the face of one of the world’s worst biggest current and most incomprehensible tragedies. Last Men in Aleppo speaks very loudly from the heart.”– Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

“Viscerally immediate, exquisitely realized… The cinema is where Last Men in Aleppo firmly belongs. Together with co-director and editor Steen Johannessen, Fayyad brings a rigorous sense of craft and shock-and-awe scale to the film’s impressions of destruction, without impeding its anxious, on-the-hoof spontaneity.”

Taki wakes from what seemed like a very important dream. But in an unfamiliar room and not in his body…but that of a girl! On the other hand, Mitsuha, a teen girl, is tired of living in a mountain village. She pleads to God “Please, let me be a handsome Tokyo boy in my next life!” The next morning, Mitsuha awakens as a high school male. Based on information around her, she learns whose body she inhabits. His name is Taki. The two have switched places! When they wake up again, they’ve returned to their former selves. But sleep brings the body swap again and again. Mysteriously, the pattern continues daily. The two fumble about, unaccustomed to each other’s bodies, but start communicating by memo. As they awkwardly overcome one challenge after another, a bond develops between the two- one that evolves into something more romantic. However, there’s something they still don’t know… The unexpected is about to be revealed.

In the way it balances grounded emotion with wondrous escapism, Your Name should firmly establish Shinkai as an auteur to follow for many years to come“– The Atlantic

On the other hand, Mitsuha, a teen girl, is tired of living in a mountain village. She pleads to God “Please, let me be a handsome Tokyo boy in my next life!” The next morning, Mitsuha awakens as a high school male. Based on information around her, she learns whose body she inhabits. His name is Taki. The two have switched places! When they wake up again, they’ve returned to their former selves. But sleep brings the body swap again and again. Mysteriously, the pattern continues daily. The two fumble about, unaccustomed to each other’s bodies, but start communicating by memo. As they awkwardly overcome one challenge after another, a bond develops between the two- one that evolves into something more romantic. However, there’s something they still don’t know… The unexpected is about to be revealed.

In the way it balances grounded emotion with wondrous escapism, Your Name should firmly establish Shinkai as an auteur to follow for many years to come“– The Atlantic

“It’s both gorgeous enough and emotionally engaging enough to be worth seeking out.”

Royal Shakespeare Company presents Julius Caesar

One Day ONLY!
Sunday, May 28th at 2:00PM

Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.  Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.

The Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action.

“Julius Caesar is helmed by Angus Jackson – and he’s brought something with him that delivers a spark of new fire in the air”

“Robert Innes Hopkins’s magisterial set evokes imperialism at its grandest and functions brilliantly as both the public face of Rome and the crumbling ruins outside its walls. But it is enhanced by the sensitive and articulate lighting of Tim Mitchell, the sound design of Carolyn Dowling and the subtle, evocative music of Mira Calix.” -WhatsOnStage

Taki wakes from what seemed like a very important dream. But in an unfamiliar room and not in his body…but that of a girl! On the other hand, Mitsuha, a teen girl, is tired of living in a mountain village. She pleads to God “Please, let me be a handsome Tokyo boy in my next life!” The next morning, Mitsuha awakens as a high school male. Based on information around her, she learns whose body she inhabits. His name is Taki. The two have switched places! When they wake up again, they’ve returned to their former selves.
