Film producer Christine Vachon once remarked, "Theatrically seeing a movie with a group of people and having a collective experience has an authenticity that you can’t get with your big screen television."
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

The 2013 Schedule:

July 2 - The Flowers of St. Francis
In a series of simple and joyous vignettes, director Roberto Rossellini and co-writer Federico Fellini lovingly convey the teachings of the People's Saint: humility, compassion, faith and sacrifice. Gorgeously photographed to evoke the paintings of St. Francis's time, and cast with monks from the Nocera Inferiore Monastery, "The Flowers of St. Francis" is a timeless and moving portrait of the search for spiritual enlightenment (synopsis by Criterion). Not Rated, 87 minutes. In Italian with subtitles.
Advance reservations close at noon on Tuesday, July 2.
