Acclaimed by critics as one of the funniest whodunits in years, Knives Out pays tribute to Agatha Christie in a modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death. With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell, writer and director Rian has produced a witty and stylish mystery guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.

Knives Out is a whole lot of fun, intended to keep the audience off-balance right up until the finish

Hailed as an impressive technical achievement, and nominated by the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director (Sam Mendes), Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography and four other awards, 1917 is an immersive film of World War I that captures the immediacy of trench warfare. Two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic's George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones' Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers--Blake's own brother among them.

Director Sam Mendes [personalizes] the experience through two young British soldiers sent on a harrowing, high-stakes, night-long mission, he creates a film that is tense, exhilarating and profoundly moving.

The Great Composers: IN SEARCH OF CHOPIN

NR01 hours 50 minutes
2:00PM
The Great Composer Series with Chopin, one of the greatest, but most enigmatic, musicians in history. Chopin’s grave in Paris remains a place of pilgrimage and his music continues to sell out concert halls worldwide – but who exactly was this man who was terrified of public performance, who fled his Polish homeland for Paris never to return, rarely gave public performances and, despite a life of ill-health, wrote some of the deepest and most powerful music ever written? How exactly did a young Polish boy rise to such heady heights?

For four years, award-winning Phil Grabsky travelled the globe in his quest to lay bare the life and music of Chopin. Some of the world’s best musicians provide the music, including Leif Ove Andsnes, Daniel Barenboim, Ronald Brautigam and the Orchestra of the 18th Century. Funny, heart-breaking, inspirational – this film has been called the first to really illustrate the true nature of this remarkable and still widely-loved composer.

A superb account providing an understanding of the creative impulse and how it is captured and expressed

Starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson, Just Mercy is a powerful and thought-provoking true story that follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.

This devastatingly affecting drama, based on a true story, reveals outrageous abuses in the justice system-ones that have hardly been redressed.

NR02 hours 29 minutes
2:00PM
Live music by noted silent film musician Jeff Rapsis of New Hampshire
Free for members, free popcorn
Tickets at the door $10 (no discounts)

D. W. Griffith’s melodrama stars Lillian Gish as an innocent “Down East” country girl who falls in love with a smooth-talking city man. He dupes her into a sham marriage ceremony, gets her pregnant, and then abandons her to her fate. After the baby dies, she is desperate and moves in with a farming family in Maine who reject her when they find out about her past. Off she goes to the river in a blizzard; the son of the family finally rescues her and brings her back into the fold, but not without great difficulty.

To accompany the film, Jeff Rapsis, a New Hampshire-based musician who specializes in creating musical scores for silent film screenings, will bring his keyboard to Harbor Theater to provide live background music for “Way Down East.”

Spectacular to look at, emotionally engaging and with a conclusion that still sends a shiver down the spine.
