    Benjamin Franklin once said, “nothing is certain except death and taxes,” and in this week’s film, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” that is exactly how things appear… at least at first. When an aging Chinese immigrant and weary laundromat owner, in the midst of an IRS audit, is swept up in an insane adventure, she alone must save the world by exploring the multiverse and other versions of herself. This film takes audiences on an adventure through life’s chaos in search of compassion and understanding.

See it at Lincoln Theater and enter our drawing to win a basket of Downton themed merchandise, including the “Official Downton Abbey Cookbook!” Final showtimes at 2 and 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 8 and Thursday, June 9.

    “Everything Everywhere All at Once” - (R; 2 hours, 12 minutes) - A hilarious and big-hearted sci-fi action adventure about an exhausted Chinese American woman (Michelle Yeoh) who can’t seem to finish her taxes. When an inter-dimensional rupture unravels reality, the unlikely hero must channel her newfound powers to fight bizarre and bewildering dangers from the multiverse as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

    “The Ninth Symphony Ballet” - (1 hour, 28 minutes) - Maurice Béjart’s compelling staging of Beethoven’s “Ninth Symphony” and Schiller’s “Ode to Joy” has been enchanting audiences worldwide since its inception and its idea of universal brotherhood remains highly topical. “Alle Menschen werden Brüder” (All men will be brothers) is the powerful message communicated by the unforgettable music and choreography. Recorded in November 2014 from the stage of the NHK Hall in Tokyo and with 250 dancers and musicians, Béjart sends this message out into the world: “It is a ‘manifestation’, in the deepest sense of the word.” One show Saturday, June 11 at 1 PM.
