08/23/2019 - Movie: Finsterworld
Finsterworld is an ensemble piece with twelve main characters who are gradually shown to interconnect with each other. Set in a sunlit country of shiny, happy people, offers a visually stunning look at the lives of contemporary Germans over the course of a single day. In each case, something is missing, and these deceptively simple scenarios give way to incisive observations about German identity, leavened with warmth and laughter to create a darkly humorous modern fairy tale.

Finsterworld is part of the German Currents Kino Series.

Admission/Cost: $7.50 - $11:00

08/24/2019 - Movie: The Dresser
In anticipation of our staged King Lear reading (Save the Date! Sunday, September 22 in Point Loma), we hope you'll join the hype train for a free screening of the King Lear love letter "The Dresser", starring two of the finest Shakespearean actors of our generation: Anthony Hopkins (Thor's Dad) and Ian McKellen (Magneto)!

"In the closing months of World War II, aging actor Sir (Sir Anthony Hopkins) and his wife Her Ladyship (Emily Watson) bring Shakespeare to the provinces with a company depleted by conscription.

Sir is plainly unwell, discharging himself from the hospital and Her Ladyship believes he should cancel his upcoming performance of "King Lear". However, Norman (Sir Ian McKellen), his outspoken, gay dresser disagrees, and is determined that the show will go on, cajoling the confused Sir into giving a performance, one which will be his swan song.

At the same time, drawing a parallel between King Lear and his fool as Norman, despite ultimate disappointment, serves his master." (From IMDb)

08/15/2019 - Silent Film: Carmen
Movies by Moonlight: A Silent Film Festival at La Jolla Historical Society.

Presented by Scott Paulson (LJHS Silent Film Curator) with support from the UC San Diego Library and live music from Scott and the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra.

The Lawn opens at 7:00 PM—bring a picnic dinner and a low beach chair or blanket.

This is the 1915 Silent film version of Carmen. Helmed by legendary director Cecil B. DeMille and loosely based on the Prosper Mrime novella, this early silent drama concerns hot-blooded gypsy Carmen (Geraldine Farrar) and her attempts to seduce Don Jose (Wallace Reid), a lawman sent to thwart a gang of illegal smugglers in Spain. Carmen's plan backfires when Don Jose's passion for the gypsy girl escalates into a jealous rage as she spurns him for her bullfighter beau, Escamillo (Pedro de Cordoba), with tragic results.

Film presentations start at 8:00 PM

08/15/2019 - Film: Taranta on the Road
The day after the Arab Spring of 2011, Amira and Tarek, two Tunisian migrants with nothing in common, reach the Italian coast. By chance, they find themselves both seeking help from a music band from Salento, Apulia, in search of success around festivals and weddings. The band mistakes them as a couple that's going to have a child and the band members decide to help them to reach France. The trip, fear, love, the uncertain future and the desire to find their own way join all in a unique experience that, perhaps, will change their lives forever.

A beautiful comedy full of music, hope, and good vibes brought to you by the San Diego Italian Film Festival!
