Patti Cake$

Now Playing!

Fed up with life in her New Jersey hometown, Patricia Dombrowski, aka Patti Cake$, hopes to follow in the footsteps of her idol and hit the road to achieve stardom as a rapper. With help from her best friend, a mysterious musician and her loving grandmother, Patti leads the charge against an army of haters, unpaid bills and the broken dreams that are holding her back.

Take “8 Mile” and cross it with “Hustle & Flow” and add a little bit of “Precious” and you have “Patti Cake$,” a hip-hop underdog story about finding the rhythm by following your own beat.

Tulip Fever

Now Playing!

Set against the backdrop of the 17th-century Tulip Wars, a married noblewoman (Alicia Vikander) has an affair with an artist (Dane DeHaan) and switches identities with her maid to escape the wealthy merchant she married. She and her lover try to raise money together by investing what little they have in the high-stakes tulip market.

Under close analysis, none of this elaborate subterfuge makes much sense, but the film is so polished in its technical proficiency that I found the absence of logic forgivable.

Warren Miller’s Line of Descent

Plays October 18th & 19th!

Tickets go on sale September 12th!

For 68 years, ski families have cheered on the official kickoff to winter with the ski film company that started it all and this year is no different. This fall, don’t miss Volkswagen presents Warren Miller’s Line of Descent. If there’s one thing Warren Miller Entertainment has learned in seven decades of making ski films, it’s that snow riders are a family—one big tribe comprised of many smaller ones. Familial rites are passed down through generations. Skier roots grow deep in high mountain soil. As the family grows, the traditions grow richer. And this year is deeper and fresher than ever.

This year, venture through Glacier Country by dogsled and chase winter along the Beartooth Highway all the while exploring the ties that bind ski culture. Join your tribe and cheer on the official kickoff to winter with the ski film company that started it all.

Thursday, December 14th!

The party starts at 6:00, film at 8:00!

Join the unsinkable Griswolds in their quixotic quest for the perfect Christmas. Extra Christmas bonus—if you come as Cousin Eddie, or in your favorite ugly Christmas sweater. So funny it’ll sleigh you.

In National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Chevy Chase’s family Christmas tree is a little full with a lot of sap, much like this movie. But it’s a big-hearted fullness and it’s a smoothly stirred sap.
