Closet Monster

90 minutes, NR

October 28-30 | Fri 8:30 | Sat 1 | Sun 3

A closeted Newfoundland teen named Oscar (Connor Jessup) dreams of becoming a special-effects makeup artist, and is terrified of his macho father finding out the truth about his sexuality. When he falls for Wilder (Aliocha Schneider), a handsome, worldly co-worker at the hardware store, he is forced to confront his fears.


  • Best Canadian Feature Film at Toronto International Film Festival
  • Audience Award at Sydney International Film Festival (Nomination)
  • Best Picture at Athens International Film Festival (Nomination)


Connor Jessup wonderfully inhabits the teenage Oscar, who observes others while trying to find himself. Aaron Abrams, as his father, and Aliocha Schneider and Sofia Banzhaf, as friends, are just as multilayered.

  • Ken Jaworowski, The New York Times

Dunn’s debut is a truly unique coming out story, not to mention a highly original Canadian film

Swiss Army Man

95 minutes, R

October 28-30 | Fri 5:30 | Sat 4 | Sun 6

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.


  • Directing Award at Sundance Film Festival
  • Grand Jury Prize at Sundance International Film Festival (Nomination)


Swiss Army Man opens as a desert-island fantasy and morphs into a disturbingly intimate buddy movie-hilarious, deranged, and always alive with possibility.

  • Jeffrey Bloomer, Slate

Impossible to categorize, this stunningly original mix of the macabre and the magical combines comedy, tragedy, fantasy and love story into an utterly singular package that’s beholden to no rules but its own.

John Carpenter's Halloween

91 minutes, R

October 28-30 | Fri 2 | Sat 7:30 | Sun 12

John Carpenter’s Halloween premiered on October 25th, 1978, not in Los Angeles with a big event at Mann’s Chinese Theater - instead it opened in Kansas City. It did quite well there and opened up in Chicago, and then earned showings in New York. From there, it had a platform release across the country, playing in different cities at different times.

Over 35 years later, the movie has made its money back more than 200 times! This earned it the title of the most successful independent horror movie of all time. It’s one of the most successful independent flicks overall, behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Blair Witch Project.

This cinema classic, digitally restored and remastered by the original cinematographer, features an exclusive extended interview and retrospective with filmmaker John Carpenter. The exclusive explores the history of the film, the legendary director behind it and the influence Halloween has had on not only the horror genre, but also the entire film industry. Carpenter explains why the film is meant for the big screen, the influences that inspire his filmmaking and how Halloween became the highest grossing independent film of all time.


  • Registered as Historically Significant by National Film Registry
  • Best Feature at Chicago International Film Festival (Nomination)


Halloween is an absolutely merciless thriller, a movie so violent and scary that, yes, I would compare it to Psycho.

  • Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Halloween remains untouched – a modern classic of the most horrific kind.

The Beatles: 8 Days A Week

Documentary, 141 minutes, NR

November 4-6 | Fri 2 & 8:30 | Sat 4 | Sun 12 & 6

We all know the moment. February 9th, 1964, 8:12pm EST - after a brief commercial break, four young men from Liverpool step onto the Ed Sullivan stage, changing culture forever. Seventy-three million people watched The Beatles perform that night, the largest audience in television history. It was an event that united a nation and signaled the birth of youth culture as we know it today. But while this single performance introduced The Beatles to America, what the band did next would introduce them to the entire world, permanently transforming the music industry and forever ingraining them into the fabric of popular culture… They went on tour.

By the time the band quit touring in August of 1966, they had performed 166 concerts in 15 countries and 90 cities around the world. The cultural phenomenon their touring helped create, known as “Beatlemania,” was something the world had never seen before and, arguably, hasn’t since. It was the first time much of the world felt truly unified - bound by aspiration and attitude, rather than divided by race, class, religion or nationality. The Beatles: 8 Days a Week tells the story of the band’s exceptional touring years - from the perspectives of the band, its world, the fans, and their world. It will examine the impact of those years on each of The Beatles - the toll that touring took on their relationships and the effect it had on their musical evolution, as well as the colossal boost the tours gave to their lifestyle and fame. But while the band created the spark, it was young people around the world who created the firestorm. The film will also explore the incomparable electricity between performer and audience that turned the music into a movement - a common experience into something sublime.


“Ron Howard’s documentary rightly keeps coming back to the music and the band’s delight in making it. Good move. It truly is a joy forever.”

  • Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“The Beatles now belong to an honored past, stuck there like an obelisk, and yet here they are, alive-busting out all over, time and time again. Yeah, yeah, yeah..”

  • Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

King Cobra

91 minutes, NR

November 4-6 | FRI 5:30 | SAT 1 & 7:30 | SUN 3:30

Based on a stranger-than-fiction true story, King Cobra is a deliciously dark, twisted plunge into the behind-the-scenes world of the pornography industry. It’s 2006, YouTube is in its infancy, and internet porn is still behind a paywall. Taking the stage name Brent Corrigan, a fresh-faced, wannabe adult video performer (Garrett Clayton) is molded into a star by Stephen (Christian Slater), a closeted gay porn mogul who runs the skin flick empire Cobra Video from his seemingly ordinary suburban home.

But as Brent’s rise and demands for more money put him at odds with his boss, he also attracts the attention of a rival producer (James Franco) and his unstable lover (Keegan Allen) who will stop at nothing to squash Cobra Video and steal its number one star. Co-starring Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald, King Cobra is part delirious, tabloid-shocker satire, part American tragedy.


A sensitive and darkly hilarious true crime story that works from top to bottom.

Movies don’t get much juicier, funnier, creepier, sadder, or smarter.

A Family Affair

documentary, 110 minutes, English & Danish, NR

November 11-13 | FRI 5:30 | SAT 1 & 7:30 | SUN 3

On his 30th birthday, Tom Fassaert receives a mysterious invitation from his 95-year-old grandmother Marianne to come visit her in South Africa. At that time, the only thing he knows about her are the myths and predominantly negative stories his father told him. She was a femme-fatale who went through countless men, a famous model in the 1950’s, and a mother that put her two sons into a children’s home. Fassaert decides to accept her invitation, but when his grandmother makes an unexpected confession, his venture becomes much more complicated than he could ever have imagined.


Best Long Documentary, Netherlands Film Festival


[An] intimate, sometimes painful documentary … demonstrates what a Sisyphean task seeking the truth can be.

“Marianne Hertz: Model and Perfect Mother.” This is how filmmaker Tom Fassaert’s grandmother was presented in a 1950s magazine. His father, uncle and aunt smile awkwardly when he makes them read it out loud: their childhood was far from perfect. Her two sons ended up in a children’s home at a young age, and the relationship with their now 95-year-old mother remains troubled.

Not long after his father broke off all contact with her, Marianne invites Fassaert to visit her in South Africa, where she started a new life years ago. He accepts and takes his camera, hoping to find the missing pieces in the family history. Why is there so much disappointment and resentment on both sides, and why was it never discussed? But while Marianne eagerly embraces his interest in her, she blatantly refuses to talk about “that family affair.” Grandma will not be directed, and in an extraordinary and completely unexpected way, she dismisses the very role her grandson is trying to bring into focus: that of a mother and grandmother.

Harry & Snowman

Documentary, 84 minutes, NR

November 18-20 | FRI 2 & 8:30 | SAT 12:30 & 7:30 | SUN 12 & 6

Harry & Snowman follows the Cinderella story of Dutch immigrant Harry deLeyer and his transformative relationship with a broken down Amish plow horse – named Snowman - that he rescued off a slaughter truck bound for the glue factory. In less than two years, Harry and Snowman would go on to win the triple crown of show jumping, beating the nation’s blue bloods and traveling the world together as they became the media darlings of the 1950s and 60s. Their chance meeting at a Pennsylvania horse auction saved them both and crafted a friendship that would last a lifetime, as told by 86-year-old Harry firsthand for the very first time.

In the film, a student of Mr. deLeyer’s recalls some of his advice: “Throw your heart over the top, and your horse will follow.” “Harry & Snowman” makes you want to do the same.

Gallop, don’t trot to Ron Davis’ winning documentary “Harry & Snowman,” which recounts the inspiring story of an underdog show horse, his tenacious trainer and their rise to fame in the late 1950s.

“All the best things about Asian cinema, rolled into one..”

Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

The Handmaiden is sexy and twisty and so compelling despite this, lodging itself in the points of view of two women who are constantly underestimated by the men around them, and who learn to take advantage of how they’re misjudged.

November 25-27 | FRI 2 & 8:30 | SAT 4 | SUN 3

Rebecca Hall stars in director Antonio Campos’ third feature film, CHRISTINE, the story of a woman who finds herself caught in the crosshairs of a spiraling personal life and career crisis. Christine, always the smartest person in the room at her local Sarasota, Florida news station, feels like she is destined for bigger things and is relentless in her pursuit of an on-air position in a larger market.

As an aspiring newswoman with an eye for nuance and an interest in social justice, she finds herself constantly butting heads with her boss (Tracy Letts), who pushes for juicier stories that will drive up ratings. Plagued by self-doubt and a tumultuous home life, Christine’s diminishing hope begins to rise when an on-air co-worker (Michael C. Hall) initiates a friendship which ultimately becomes yet another unrequited love. Disillusioned as her world continues to close in on her, Christine takes a dark and surprising turn.

Based on true events, Campos’ intimate and sensitive portrait of a woman on the brink is grounded by Hall’s impeccable and transformative performance as Christine. Rounding out the supporting cast are superlative performances by Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), Tracy Letts (“Homeland,” Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright), Maria Dizzia (“Orange Is The New Black”), Timothy Simons (“Veep”) and J. Smith-Cameron (Margaret). Directed by Antonio Campos. Written by Craig Shilowich.

“A forceful piece of work, and Hall is next-level great.”

My Internship in Canada

108 minutes, French and Creole, NR

December 2-4 | FRI 2 | SAT 1 & 7:30 | SUN 3

In this satirical look at the vagaries of Canadian politics from Oscar-nominated director Philippe Falardeau (Monsieur Lazhar), has returned to his Quebec roots with this broad and sweet political comedy.

Focusing on the last honest man in office – a rural independent MP (Patrick Huard) who finds himself with the deciding vote over whether the country goes to war – Falardeau wrings laughs out of all the expected corners of the Canadian political psyche. (His Stephen Harper stand-in, played by Paul Doucet, is a particular riot, right do

The Brand New Testament

113 minutes, French and German, NR

December 9-11 | FRI 2 & 8:30 | SAT 4 | SUN 12 & 6

THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENT begins with one simple conceit: God exists! He lives in Brussels and he’s a real bastard, a petty tyrant to his wife and daughter. His son is known well; JC managed to escape his father’s grasp and live among us, getting himself killed in the process. But God has a daughter, too. Ea is ten years old and has had enough of her father using humanity as his playthings. When she spies the right opportunity, she hacks into his computer and leaks to the entire world via text message their inevitable date of death. What follows is Jaco Van Dormael’s witty and eccentric answer to the loaded question: what would you do if you knew exactly how much time you had left to live?


No one can accuse co writer/director Jaco Van Dormael of not having a vivid imagination. This sly religious satire will delight anyone who’s ever wondered how God can allow such misery in the world with its ‘All you need is love’ feminist coup.

Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews

It ought to be too daft and random for its own good, but Brand New Testament is a book we can believe in. Hallelujah.

Coming Through the Rye

97 minutes, PG-13

December 9-11 | FRI 5:30 | SAT 1 & 7:30 | SUN 3

Based on the Emmy Award-winning filmmaker’s own true story, 16-year-old Jamie Schwartz (Alex Wolff) wants desperately to be a worldly adolescent. Unhappy at his all-boys boarding school, his life raft is the belief that he will someday play Holden Caulfield—the complex and alienated main character from the iconic novel The Catcher in the Rye—on Broadway and in the movies. He adapts the novel as a play and runs away to the mountains of New Hampshire to search for the book’s reclusive author, JD Salinger (Academy Award winner Chris Cooper). Along the way he is picked up by a local girl, DeeDee Gorlin (Stefania Owen). Their odyssey and the events that follow are a journey into the meanings of friendship, sex, love and loss.


Coming Through the Rye may be the closest we’ll ever get cinematically to the novel. And in being so far away from it, it’s close enough.

Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com

It’s not a perfect film, but it resonates for anyone who’s ever been touched by a book, movie, painting, or song and had their world shift into something it wasn’t before.
