“The Taste of Things” -  (PG 13; 2 hours 25 minutes) - In 1889 France, “The Taste of Things” invites viewers into the world of Dodin Bouffant (Benoit Magimel), a chef living with his devoted personal cook and lover, Eugénie (Juliette Binoche). Despite their shared passion for gastronomy and a deep history of love, Eugénie hesitates to marry Dodin. Determined to win her over in a unique way, Dodin embarks on a culinary journey he's never undertaken before: cooking for her. This epicurean tale serves up a delectable seven-course love story that tantalizes the senses. Over two decades, Dodin and Eugénie's romance blossoms alongside their remarkable culinary creations, impressing even the most discerning palates. As Dodin faces Eugénie's reluctance to commit, he turns to the kitchen to express his affection in a way that transcends words. Wednesday, April 3, 2 p.m. (OCAP), Thursday, April 4, 7 p.m.

“’The Taste of Things’ is essentially a love letter to food and cooking; to what it feels like to sip a soup that is reminiscent of a sonata’s development ; to the sensual nature of food; to the simple joy of making something side-by-side with a loved one.” - Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

“One Life” - (PG 13; 1 hour, 49 minutes) - Based on the book “If It’s Not Impossible…:The Life of Sir Nicholas Winton” by Barbara Winton, “One Life” tells the incredible, emotional true story of Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton (Johnny Flynn), a young London broker who visits Prague in December 1938. In a race against time, Winton convinces Trevor Chadwick (Alex Sharp) and Doreen Warriner (Romola Garai) of the British Committee for Refugees in Czechoslovakia to rescue hundreds of predominantly Jewish children before Nazi occupation closes the borders. 50 years later, Nicky (Anthony Hopkins) is haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England. It’s not until the BBC show “That’s Life!” re-introduces him to some of those he helped rescue that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he carried — all the while skyrocketing from anonymity to a national hero. Opens Friday, April 5, 7 p.m., Saturday, April 6, 7 p.m., Sunday, April 7, 2 p.m., Wednesday, April 10, 2 p.m. (OCAP), Thursday, April 11, 7 p.m.

“’One Life’ is a slow burn, slowly establishing Winton’s modest character as a younger and older man, but when it cracks open, it is a deeply moving portrait of true human goodness." - Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service

“Lyle, Lyle Crocodile” - (2022; PG; 1 hour, 46 minutes) - Free family film -  Join us for the April 6 screening of “Lyle, Lyle Crocodile” and enjoy free admission and free popcorn! When the Primm family (Constance Wu, Scoot McNairy, Winslow Fegley) moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. All of that changes when he discovers Lyle – a singing crocodile (Shawn Mendes) who loves baths, caviar and great music-living in the attic of his new home. The two become fast friends, but when Lyle’s existence is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the Primm’s must band together with Lyle’s charismatic owner, Hector P. Valenti (Javier Bardem), to show the world that family can come from the most unexpected places and there’s nothing wrong with a big singing crocodile with an even bigger personality. ONE SHOW ONLY! Saturday, April 6, 2 p.m.

"A warmhearted family film with great musical numbers that will make another generation of kids hopefully search the attic on the chance that they might find a singing crocodile." - Nell Minow,
