“Evil Does Not Exist “ - (NR; 1 hour, 46 minutes - In Japanese with English subtitles) - In the rural alpine hamlet of Mizubiki, not far from Tokyo, Takumi and his daughter, Hana, lead a modest life. Increasingly, the townsfolk become aware of a talent agency’s plan to build an opulent glamping site nearby. When two company representatives arrive and ask for local guidance, Takumi becomes conflicted in his involvement, as it becomes clear that the project will have a pernicious impact on the community. Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s follow up to his Academy Award winning film “Drive My Car” is a foreboding fable on humanity’s mysterious, mystical relationship with nature. Final showtime Thursday, June 13 at 2 p.m.

Exhibition On Screen: “My National Gallery” - (1 hour, 30 minutes) - The National Gallery of London is one of the world’s greatest art galleries. It is full of masterpieces, an endless resource of history, an endless source of stories. The power of great art lies in its ability to communicate with anyone, no matter their art historical knowledge, their background, their beliefs. This film gives voice to those who work at the gallery – from cleaner to curator, security guard to director – who identify the one artwork that means the most to them and why. An assortment of people from all walks of life who have a strong connection to the gallery make surprising choices of both well-known and lesser-known artworks. Finally, some well-known celebrities explain what they head for when they visit the gallery. These stories are used as a lens through which to explore the 200-year history of the National Gallery and what the future may hold for this spectacular space. Directed by Phil Grabsky and Ali Ray. Playing Thursday, June 13 at 7 p.m. and Friday, June 14 at 2 p.m. Tickets: $15 adult, $13 members and $5 youth 18 and under.

“The Fall Guy” - (PG-13; 2 hours, 6 minutes) -  He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right? Starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt. Playing Friday, June 14 at 7 p.m., Saturday, June 15 at 2 and 7 p.m., Sunday, June 16 at 2 p.m.;  Wednesday, June 19 at 2 and 7 p.m.; and Thursday, June 20 at 2 p.m.

Adult Acting Class: Crafting Characters with Frances -  Lincoln Theater is pleased to present a new acting class for adults (ages 18 and up) taught by former Broadway actress, Frances Mercanti-Anthony. “This is a class for writers, actors, directors, storytellers, and anyone interested in producing their own works of fiction,” said Mercanti-Anthony. “We will begin with a blank canvas, and move through the craft of character development weaving in elements of scenic design, costuming, staging, and culminating in a monologue performed before the class. This course is ideal for those looking to stretch their creative muscles, and take risks in their work. Those who have always wanted to try their hand at writing or acting, but have felt intimidated, this is your welcome space! Come create with us!” Classes will be held at Lincoln Theater on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. beginning Tuesday ,June 18 and continuing through Tuesday, July 23 (6 classes in total).
