“Champions” - (PG13; 2 hours, 3 minutes) – One week only! - The story follows Marcus Markovich (Woody Harrelson), who coaches a minor-league basketball team in the hopes of one day making it to the NBA. However, he loses his temper and causes a commotion on the court as the game is being broadcast, leading to his dismissal. “Champions” is based on the true story of Aderes, a team that has been aiming to win the Valencian Special Olympics for years. The original film Campeones was well appreciated by viewers and was the highest-grossing Spanish film of the year in 2018. Wednesday, March 29, 7 p.m., Thursday, March 30, 7 p.m.

Woody Harrelson offers a winning, low-key performance with a high feel-good percentage.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times

“The Quiet Girl” - (PG13; 1 hour, 34 minutes) - Rural Ireland. 1981. Nine-year-old Cait is sent away from her overcrowded, dysfunctional family to live with foster parents for the summer.

She blossoms in their care, but in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one painful truth. Plays at 7 p.m. Friday, March 31, Saturday, April 1, Wednesday, April 5, Thursday, April 6; and Sunday, April 2 at 2 p.m.

"A genuine work of art by a genuinely empathetic artist, and one of the single most moving, heartfelt, and heartbreaking movies from any country in the last decade. That only sounds like hyperbole until you see it." -David Fear, Rolling Stone

“The Lost King” - (PG13; 1 hour, 48 minutes) - In 2012, after having been lost for over 500 years, the remains of King Richard III were discovered beneath a carpark in Leicester.

Plays at 7 p.m. Friday, April 7, Saturday, April 8, Wednesday, April 12, Thursday April 13; and on Sunday, April 9 at 2 p.m.
