    “Book Club: The Next Chapter” - (PG13; 1 hour, 27 minutes) - This highly anticipated sequel follows our four best friends - Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton and Mary Steenburgen - as they take their book club to Italy for the fun girls’ trip they never had. When things go off the rails and secrets are revealed, their relaxing vacation turns into a once-in-a-lifetime cross-country adventure. When Vivian (Fonda) gets engaged, the rest of the group gets the idea to throw her a wild bachelorette party in Italy. We see them tour around Rome, taking in the historical sights and meeting attractive men along the way. Final shows at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 24 and Thursday, May 25.

    Exhibition On Screen: Tokyo Stories” - (90 minutes) - Directed by David Bickerstaff, this film gives us a thrilling encounter with one of the world’s great art capitals. Based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford, Tokyo Stories spans 400 years of incredibly dynamic art – ranging from the delicate woodblock prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige, to Pop Art posters, contemporary photography, Manga, film, and brand-new artworks that were created on the streets. The exhibition was a smash-hit five-star success and brought a younger and more diverse audience to the museum. The film uses the exhibition as a launchpad to travel to Tokyo itself and explore the art and artists of the city more fully. A beautifully illustrated and richly detailed film, looking at a city which has undergone constant destruction and renewal over its 400-year history, resulting in one of the most vibrant and interesting cities on the planet. ONE show only! Friday, May 26, 2 p.m.

    “Tokyo has a powerful engine that just doesn’t stop. There is an energy, a particular floating power in Tokyo. Whatever happens, this city gets rebuilt again and continues to move forwards.” -Machida Kumi

    “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” - (PG13; 1 hour, 46 minutes) - Eleven-year-old Margaret moves to a new town and starts to contemplate everything about life, friendship and adolescence. She relies on her mother, Barbara (Rachel McAdams) who offers loving support, and her grandmother, Sylvia (Kathy Bates), who's coming to terms with finding happiness in the next phase of her life. Questions of identity, one's place in the world, and what brings meaning to life soon brings them closer together than ever before. Opening Friday, May 26 - see full-length article on the film elsewhere in this section - runs through May 31. Special ticket pricing: family of five: $20 admission; individuals, $8. Raffle prizes.
