Don't miss the final installment of our David Bowie STARMAN series!

"In this captivating World War II drama from Nagisa Oshima, David Bowie regally embodies Celliers, a British officer interned by the Japanese as a POW. Rock star Ryuichi Sakamoto (who also composed this film’s hypnotic score) plays the camp commander, obsessed with the mysterious blond major, while Tom Conti is the British lieutenant colonel Lawrence, who tries to bridge the emotional and language divides between captor and prisoner. Also featuring actor-director Takeshi Kitano in his first dramatic role, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence is a multilayered, brutal, at times erotic tale of culture clash, and one of Oshima’s greatest successes." - Janus

See Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence June 25 & 28 only!

See Charlie Chaplin's first 'true sound' film, THE GREAT DICTATOR on the big screen!

"In his controversial masterpiece The Great Dictator, Charlie Chaplin offers both a cutting caricature of Adolf Hitler and a sly tweaking of his own comic persona. Chaplin, in his first pure talkie, brings his sublime physicality to two roles: the cruel yet clownish 'Tomainian' dictator and the kindly Jewish barber who is mistaken for him. The Great Dictator, boldly going after the fascist leader before the U.S.’s official entry into WW II, is an audacious amalgam of politics and slapstick that culminates in Chaplin’s famously impassioned speech." - Janus

June 26 & 28. Two matinees at the Twin!
