"The Walk"

Monday, March 28 at 6:30 pm

In 1974, a French high-wire artist accomplished the impossible. Using subterfuge, cunning and luck, he strung a wire between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and walked across, 1,300 feet above the ground below. It's a story too incredible to be true but it really did happen. This film is a captivating portrayal of those events, made with a perfect mix of thrill and heart. And it's also a celebration of an American landmark whose symbolism is still raw in our consciousness, which gives the film a touching, bittersweet edge.
 

"District 9"

in 1982, an alien spacecraft appeared over Johannesburg, South Africa, filled with malnourished aliens seeking refuge. The government allows them to land, but quarantines them in the titular district, where lawlessness and poverty rule. 28 years later, mild-mannered bureaucrat at the Department of Alien Affairs, becomes infected with an alien fluid, and he must rush to clear his name and find a cure before it's too late.
 
"A League of Their Own"
Wednesday, March 30 at 12:30 pm
During the Second World War, with all able-bodied men serving overseas, a Women's Professional Baseball League was formed to entertain the homefront until the male players could return home. This delightful comedy from director Penny Marshall is a fictionalized account of two sisters, Dotty (Gina Davis) and Kit (Lori Petty), who make the cut and hit the road with the Rockford Peaches, where they learn from Tom Hanks that there's no crying in baseball!
 
"The Silence of the Lambs"
Thursday, March 31 at 3:45 pm
You can't go wrong with this Oscar-winning fava-rite, a chilling thriller about one psychopathic killer helping to catch another psychopathic killer before he can kill again. Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar for his iconic take on the menacing and eerie foodie Dr. Hannibal Lecter as did Jodie Foster for her intense work as FBI trainee Clariiiiiceeee Starling. Fun Fact: Following the release of this film, the birthrate of babies named Clarice plummeted by 75%.
