Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me

April 11 - April 17

"Cheers to a movie as gloriously entertaining and bluntly honest as the lady herself. Everybody rise." —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Now in her late 80s, Broadway legend Elaine Stritch remains as ferociously funny as ever. In this bold, hilarious and poignant portrait, the uncompromising Tony and Emmy Award-winner is revealed both on and off stage. Candid reflections about her life are punctuated with words from friends (including James Gandolfini, Tina Fey, John Turturro, Hal Prince, George C. Wolfe, Nathan Lane and Cherry Jones) and archival footage that showcases some of the great moments from her career. Whetherdominating the stage, tormenting Alec Baldwin on the set of 30 Rock, or sharing her struggles with aging, diabetes and alcoholism, Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me reaches beyond the icon’s brassy exterior and reveals an inspiring portrait of a complex woman and artist.

April 22 - April 22


In His Own Home is a documentary about the March 2010 shooting of an unarmed black student by campus police at the University of Florida and the failure of the administration to address the racism and over militarization of its police force. It tells the story of Kofi Adu Brempong, a disabled graduate Student from Ghana, who was attacked by a campus SWAT team during a bungled response to a 911 call from a neighbor. It is also about students whose protests led the administration to drop criminal charges against Kofi and whose continued activism challenges police brutality.
