“Sharp and Riotously Funny” – Variety
“The funniest doc in years” – The Hollywood Reporter
“It’s about shifting identities, parental expectations and trying to hold on to a life raft of tradition in a swirling sea of change.  And it’s pretty funny, too.” – Ft. Worth Star-Telegram

 

About the Film

MEET THE PATELS is a laugh-out-loud real life romantic comedy about Ravi Patel, an almost-30-year-old Indian-American who enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams … and his parents. Filmed by Ravi’s sister in what started as a family vacation video, this hilarious and heartbreaking film reveals how love is a family affair.

Reviews
With its casual deadpan attitude, Buzzard offers a portrait of arrested development and anomie for the age of inequality. – The New York Times

Tough to categorize, tougher to shrug off, “Buzzard” firmly places young indie filmmaker Joel Potrykus on the ones-to-watch list. – Los Angeles Times

Breaks new ground in pushing character-based comedy right to the edge.
Salon.com

 

About the Film
In this contemporary story of alienation, a suburban slacker and penny-ante con artist who lives in his parents’ basement, digs himself into an anti-social rut until he is finally out of options.

SPECIAL EVENT

Fri Feb 12 7:30 pm


LIVE RAGTIME PIANO,
MAGICK LANTERN WITH VOCALIST
SILENT FILM COMEDIES
with world-renowned pianist,  Ethan Uslan!

 

Tickets must be purchased by Feb. 6

85 minute program with one intermission.
$20 general admission limited to 50 seats

 

Program includes original piano accompaniment to select silent films, a sing-along Magick Lantern Show from the 1890s, and several rip-roaring ragtime piano solos.

 


 

“If you listen to this guy’s recordings, it’s something different. It’s just got a snap to it, played the way they ought to.”     

-Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion

 


 

 

Ethan Uslan is a ragtime/jazz/silent film pianist based in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is a 3-time winner of the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest (yes – that really exists!) and has performed all over the USA as well as in the UK, France, Italy, Switzerland, and Belgium.

 

Aside from solo work, Ethan has appeared with symphony orchestras, jazz bands large and small, improv comedy groups, and even a clown show.

 

Beginning classical studies at the age of 9 in his hometown of South Orange, NJ, Ethan went on to study classical piano at Indiana University. Overloaded with classical music, Ethan began to play Scott Joplin and Fats Waller as a diversion. But eventually the syncopated music took over, and he hasn’t looked back since.

 

We are limited to only 50 seats for this special event.

Advance purchase only required by Feb 6. No Sales at the Door

 Pay on-line with credit card, or call 704-996-7724.  All tickets $20.00 plus NC Sales Tax

 Sundance Film Festival

Unique in its frankness, humor, and artistry. – Austin Chronicle
A breakthrough film – Boston Globe
Captivating – Seattle Times
 A coming-of-age movie from a woman’s perspective that deals with sex in a frank, graphic way that is never salacious or prurient. – The Oregonian

 

About the Film
Boldly unconventional and refreshingly honest, THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL is a frank coming-of-age story that addresses its themes — and its protagonist — without judgment. Based on a true memoir, and set in San Francisco’s swinging ‘70s, it is a rare example where teenage angst and emotional confusion is told from the point of view of a young woman. R-rating for scenes of sexuality– mature audiences only.

‘a modestly-scaled and exceptionally crafted independent film that is genuinely invested in its characters’—RogerEbert.com
‘a good-looking debut’—Hollywood Reporter
‘an enjoyable ride with a very likable and endearing main character’
Film Pulse

 

About the Film
A Catcher in the Rye for Millennials.  A week before he’s set to move across the country with his girlfriend, Craig impulsively sets out on a solo road trip across the US to see the nation’s largest tacky tourist sites in this funny, warm-hearted indie comedy of millennial self-discovery. An honest view of a young man on the verge of marriage who dares to question if the time and circumstances are right for him to leap into adulthood. This debut feature film is a good example of an independent filmmaker showing a lot of promise and guts.

REVIEWS

“A captivating record of an artist in full command of her idiosyncratic powers” – VARIETY


“An imaginative stand-alone artwork.” –HOLLYWOOD REPORTER


“The galactic and microscopic visuals have a soothing warmth, tending toward shades of gold and dusty rose, while Björk’s electronic-influenced backing oscillates between contained thuds and freer steel-drum-like patterns.”

NEW YORK TIMES

 

ABOUT THE FILM
Biophilia Live is a concert film that captures the human element of björk’s multi-disciplinary multimedia project: Biophilia.  It is a rare audio-visual feast.  Recorded live at Björk’s show at London’s Alexandra palace in 2013, the film features Björk and her band performing every song on her Biophilia album– and more, using a broad variety of instruments – some digital, some traditional, and some completely unclassifiable.

 

A shimmering choir of 14 women meander throughout the stage adding another dimension to the audio-visual experience.

 

Seeing it in HD, on our 17 ft screen with 7.2 Dolby DTS sound is a special experience.

Fascinating documentary on the history of authentic Hawaiian dance; Sunday April 3

SUN, April 3  2:30 pm

Music / Dance Documentary
85 minutes – (G)

REVIEWS

 

“Nothing short of wondrous in its purity.” – San Francisco Examiner Magazine

“A timeless record of artistic expression and pure entertainment.” – The Seattle Times

“A deftly wrought blend of background, profile and performance… riveting and poignant.” – The Nation

 

ABOUT THE FILM
This documentary explores the work of the Kuma Hula, the holders and teachers of the sacred hula tradition of dance and song. Although commonly misrepresented as seductive entertainments performed for tourists, the hula dances elaborate stories and myths of Hawaiian culture as transmitted through the concerted efforts of musicians, singers, and dancers. The vibrant hulas performed against the breathtaking panoramas of the Hawaiian Islands are a sight to behold.

 

Doors open at 2:00 pm.  Screening begins at 2:30 pm

NATIONAL GALLERY
Documentary
190 Minutes
(including  2 intermissions)
2014 / USA
dir. Fred Wiseman

 

 

“A tour de force” – The New Yorker

 

“The experience of watching ‘National Gallery’ is pleasurable and immersive because Wiseman is a wonderful storyteller. It is also unexpectedly moving.”  –New York Times

“One of Wiseman’s richest and most thought-provoking films, and easily one of his best.” – Slant Magazine

“Wiseman’s film is all about the studious reverence for the brush-wielding geniuses, and the shepherding of their reputations through the vagaries of restoration and exhibition. . .it’s neither propaganda nor melodrama, but a clear-sighted attempt to establish, with honesty, what working at the National Gallery is like – and that is its principal value.” –The Guardian

 

“Meticulously crafted, intellectually intricate, and touched with profundity. An invigorating portrait. A tribute to the wonders of creative expression. A film about classics and their illustrious home that itself has been made by a modern master.” –Village Voice

 

NATIONAL GALLERY is a Studio C Cinema Special Event

All seats reserved by advance purchase only.

Only 50 seats available. 

No seats will be sold after March 30.  
General admission $20.00 for this 3-hour program.
