May 5, 2:00 & 7:00 A STAR IS BORN
Seasoned country-music star Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) discovers – and falls in love with struggling but talented Ally (Lady Gaga.) She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer, until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. This well-acted, entertaining film received eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor (Sam Elliott), and won for Best Original Song. (2018), R (language/sexuality), 136 minutes.
May 12, 2:00 & 7:00 THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN
Based on the true-life exploits of bank robber Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), this tale recounts his audacious escape from San Quentin at age 70, followed by an unprecedented long string of heists that confounded the authorities and enchanted the public, until his final arrest at age 78. Wrapped-up in the pursuit is a detective (Casey Affleck) who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman who loves him (Sissy Spacek.) Redford claims it’s his last movie; if so, it’s a charismatic swan-song for him. (2018), PG-13, 93 minutes.
May 19, 2:00 & 7:00 PUZZLE
Agnes (Kelly Macdonald), taken for granted as a suburban wife and mother, discovers a passion for solving jigsaw puzzles and she is drawn into a new world – where her life unfolds in ways she could never have imagined. Macdonald is superb in her portrayal of the blossoming Agnes in this poignant film of self-discovery. Irfan Khan, as her puzzle partner, and David Denman, as her husband, also shine. Critically acclaimed, Puzzle has been a film festival audience favorite. (2018), R (language), 103 minutes.
