Passage to Mars

documentary, 94 minutes, NR

October 21-23 | Fri 2, 5:30 | Sat 7:30 | Sun 3

Before man makes it to Mars, he must conquer the Arctic. Passage to Mars is the incredible true story of six men who embark on a treacherous, 2,000-mile journey across the forbidding tundra of the Northwest Passage—an alien voyage on planet Earth designed to prepare NASA astronauts for an eventual mission to Mars. But as an expedition that was supposed to take weeks stretches into a two-year odyssey, the crew must overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges and life-threatening conditions if they hope to realize their dreams of someday reaching the Red Planet. This breathtaking adventure features narration by Zachary Quinto and special guest voice appearances by Buzz Aldrin and Academy Award nominee Charlotte Rampling.


It’s a thrill to see so careful a re-creation - and some actual footage - of Martian geography.

  • Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

Take “Ice Road Truckers,” mix it with “The Martian” and blend in a book of verse, and you’ve got something that resembles “Passage to Mars,” a beguiling documentary that’s concerned as much with images as it is with information.

Mia Madre

107 minutes, English/Italian, R

October 21-23 | Fri 8:30 | Sat 1, 4 | Sun 6

Acclaimed Italian auteur Nanni Moretti finds comedy and pathos in the story of Margherita, a harried film director (Margherita Buy, A Five Star Life) trying to juggle the demands of her latest movie and a personal life in crisis. The star of her film, a charming but hammy American actor (John Turturro) imported for the production, initially presents nothing but headaches and her crew is close to mutiny. Away from the shoot, Margherita tries to hold her life together as her beloved mother’s illness progresses, and her teenage daughter grows ever more distant.


  • Palme d’Or at Cannes International Film Festival (Nomination)
  • Best Foreign Film at Cesar Awards (Nomination)
  • Best Feature at Chicago International Film Festival (Nomination)


Moretti knows how to orchestrate a good laugh when it’s needed, but he can plumb more soulful, sorrowful depths, too.

  • Stephen Rey, The Philadelphia Inquirer

Love, death, cinema - they’re all there in “Mia Madre,” bumping up against one another beautifully.

  • Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Melly Still’s production […] is unafraid of emotion and boasts fine performances

  • Michael Billington, The Guardian

Thrilling, moving, epic.


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.

  • James Berardinelli, ReelViews

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.

  • Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
