“The best film at Sundance.” –Daily Beast
Frank (Michael Fassbender), an unstable yet charismatic musical savant, at all times wears a large, round, fake crudely painted head. Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is the antithesis of all things mainstream. With their drummer, bassist and keyboard player, this makeshift but brilliant band go in search of success, an unlikely proposition, and find adventure. Lenny Abrahamson’s tale, strangely enough, is based on a true story. (Ireland, 2014, 95m, DCP, Magnolia Pictures)
“An incredibly assured directorial debut … a smart, crowd-pleasing entertainment … spectacular performances from Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss.” –Variety
Novelist Charlie McDowell makes a big splash with his first film, following a couple (Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss) who, on the verge of splitting up, escape to a beautiful vacation house to try and reconcile. What happens next … is worth seeing, rather than reading about! Funny, smart, deep, surprising, this is a romantic comedy unlike any before. (U.S., 2014, 90m, DCP, Radius-TWC) HELD OVER THIS WEEKEND ONLY!!!
Richard Linklater began filming this story of a family’s evolution in 2002, and for the next 12 years followed the story of a boy (Ellar Coltrane) and his sister (Lorelei LInklater), who are coping with the challenges of growing up with two divorced parents (Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke). An unprecedented work of commitment, BOYHOOD is also a universally resonant chronicle of the passage of time. (U.S., 164m, 2013, IFC Films, DCP)

For the past three years Meow Wolf has been delighting art-going and non-art-going audiences alike with their massive and expansive art experiences. Part installation, part performance, part literature, part interactive sculpture - The Due Return is designed to break boundaries and challenge our idea of conventional art experiences while delighting the senses.
Meow Wolf is an extremely inclusive group of artists. Over 100 arists are in collaboration including: painters, sculptors, video artists, dancers, musicians, writers, strategists, sound designers, actors, architects, administrators, acrobats, archivists, programmers, electrical engineers, and visionaries. The Due Return combines all of these mediums into a multi-media extravaganza full of color and life.
Traverse the PCA Due Return, an inter-dimensional time and space traveling ship and play with its onboard technologies. Explore the ecology of an unknown alien planet; a world full of intelligent light-based life-forms. Interact with these life-forms with the crew's life-form manipulation consoles, from the ships control room, or from the iPhone app. Witness the crew going about their lives and peek into the bizarre culture of travelers that inhabit the ship. Peruse a vast collection of documentation covering several generations of the crew via The Loci - a multimedia archive.
