Trophy

Now Playing!

This in-depth look into the powerhouse industries of big-game hunting, breeding and wildlife conservation in the U.S. and Africa unravels the complex consequences of treating animals as commodities.

What’s abundantly clear is that every other species on Earth is at our mercy, and that there are no easy answers when it comes to determining the most compassionate form of our so-called dominion.

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.

Victoria and Abdul

Opens Friday, October 20th!

Abdul Karim arrives from India to participate in Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee. The young clerk is surprised to find favor with the queen herself. As Victoria questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance that her household and inner circle try to destroy. As their friendship deepens, the queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes, joyfully reclaiming her humanity.

It’s up to historians to assess how accurate this funny, charming film is to the details of Queen Victoria’s last years, but its use of poetic license is impeccable.

Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House

Opens Friday, October 27th!

Based on a true story of the most anonymous man in American history: Mark Felt, the FBI second-in-command who was the “Deepthroat” whistle-blower in the 1970’s Watergate scandal. The identity of the secret informant remained a source of intense public curiosity and speculation for over 30 years, until Felt revealed himself in a Vanity Fair article in 2005. While his name has been public for over a decade, few know about the personal and professional life of the brilliant and uncompromising Felt, who risked and ultimately sacrificed everything to bring what he knew to light.

With “All the President’s Men” forever emblazoned in our collective consciousness, it’s fun, or at least illuminating, to see some of these same scenes from Deep Throat’s point of view.

Rated: R

Marjorie Prime

Opens Friday, November 3rd!

Eighty-six-year-old Marjorie spends her final, ailing days with a computerized version of her deceased husband. With the intent to recount their life together, Marjorie’s Prime relies on the information from her and her kin to develop a more complex understanding of his history. As their interactions deepen, the family begins to develop diverging recounts of their lives, drawn into the chance to reconstruct the often painful past.

The haunting and allusive Marjorie Prime is a sci-fi film set in the near future but its emotional resonance is bracingly immediate.
