Isle of Dogs

Now Playing!

When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.

Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs” is such a feast of illustrated imagination and subtle wit in its depiction of an exiled canine kingdom that the idea of a life lived under the heavy paw of our pooch overlords doesn’t seem like such a bad one.

Death of Stalin

Now Playing!

The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale).

“The Death of Stalin” should please moviegoers who appreciate humor that’s significantly more sophisticated than we’ve become accustomed to encountering on the big screen these days.

Borg vs. McEnroe

Opens Friday, April 27th!

It’s the summer of 1980, and Björn Borg is the top tennis player in the world, dominating the sport both on and off the court. A powerful and rigorously disciplined player, there is only one obstacle in his pursuit of a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon championship: the highly talented but ferociously abrasive young American John McEnroe. With three days until the tournament begins, Borg trains religiously in his lavish Monaco home, aided by his coach and mentor Lennart and girlfriend Mariana.

It’s about damn time somebody made a movie outta these guys.

Far East / Far West: Montana’s Asian Sisters

Tuesday, May 1st at 7:00 PM!

Tickets are free. Please join us for dumplings and pineapple cakes at the 6:30 reception before the screening.

In the spring of 2016 an HCTV video crew visited Taiwan and Guangxi, China, both of which are official sister states with Montana. Their para-diplomatic journey was brief but richly rewarding. The resulting video program is intended to stimulate public interest and involvement in these relationships. In a variety of cultural, economic, and culinary venues, the HCTV team’s organized brushes with China’s past were also brief and fascinating encounters with the global future. They are eager to show and tell about a purposeful journey from the Far West to the Far East.
