In a Violent Nature
Friday, May 31st
When a locket is removed from a collapsed fire tower in the woods that entombs the rotting corpse of Johnny (Ry Barrett) a vengeful spirit spurred on by a horrific 60-year-old crime, his body is resurrected and becomes hellbent on retrieving it.
A campfire kill-a-thon with a twist, the film is shot largely from the perspective of the killer himself, with the viewer following in the third person as Johnny (Ry Barret) stomps through the woods like a bashed-up, vengeful Terminator.
The Watchers
Thursday, June 6th
A young artist (Dakota Fanning) gets stranded in an extensive, immaculate forest in western Ireland, where, after finding shelter, she becomes trapped alongside three strangers, stalked by mysterious creatures each night.

An adaptation of the novel by the same name, The Watchers is the feature film directorial debut of Ishana Shyamalan, daughter of M. Night. The now-22-year-old director also worked alongside her father as an assistant director on Old and Knock At The Cabin, so she is no stranger to the genre.
Inside Out 2
Friday, June 14th
Return to the mind of newly minted teenager Riley just as headquarters is undergoing a sudden demolition to make room for something entirely unexpected: new Emotions! Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust, who’ve long been running a successful operation by all accounts, aren’t sure how to feel when Anxiety (Maya Hawke) shows up. And it looks like she’s not alone.

Giving audiences, especially younger ones, a toolbox to navigate their overwhelming emotions and beliefs is what the Inside Out films are all about. Inside Out 2 will expand on the first film, providing empathy and a toolbox for what is often the most challenging time of a person’s life — their teen years.
Friday, June 14th
A mother (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her terminally ill teenage daughter (Lola Petticrew) must confront Death when it arrives in the form of an astonishing talking bird.

Debut filmmaker Daina O. Pusic presents a heart-rending fairy tale about the echoes of loss and finding resilience in the unexpected. Tuesday addresses the trauma of losing someone you love, with a fantastical twist. The bond between a parent and child is put to the test as the two of them brace themselves for the inevitable loss that looms over their heads like a shadow.
The Bikeriders
Friday, June 21st
After a chance encounter at a local bar, strong-willed Kathy (Jodie Comer) is inextricably drawn to Benny (Austin Butler), the newest member of The Vandals, a motorcycle club led by Johnny (Tom Hardy). Much like the country around it, the club begins to evolve, transforming from a gathering place for local outsiders into a dangerous underworld of violence, forcing Benny to choose between Kathy and his loyalty to the club.

The Bikeriders captures a rebellious time in America when the culture and people were changing. Writer-director Jeff Nichols shapes this material into an exploration of masculinity and identity, allowing the sharply drawn characters to exist in remarkable complexity.
Kinds of Kindness
Friday, June 28th
A man seeks to break free from his predetermined path, a cop questions his wife's demeanor after her return from a supposed drowning, and a woman searches for an extraordinary individual prophesied to become a renowned spiritual guide.

Kinds of Kindness is a triptych fable directed by Yorgos Lanthimos (Poor Things) and starring Emma Stone – marking their 4th collaboration – Willem Dafoe, Jesse Plemons and Margaret Qualley.
Friday, July 5th
In 1980s Hollywood, adult film star and aspiring actress Maxine Minx (Mia Goth) finally gets her big break. But as a mysterious killer stalks the starlets of Hollywood, a trail of blood threatens to reveal her sinister past.

MaXXXine is the final film in writer-director Ti West’s horror trilogy that began with X in 2022, which was followed by Pearl later that year. The film is stylistically committed to the era in which it is set, dripping in classic 80’s visuals throughout. Also eventually dripping, of course, in blood.
To Wong Foo (1995) *preceded by* Matinee Baby (local short film)
Friday & Saturday July 5/6th ONLY
Elite Manhattan drag queens Vida Boheme (Patrick Swayze) and Noxeema Jackson (Wesley Snipes) impress regional judges in competition, securing berths in the Nationals in Los Angeles. When the two meet pathetic drag novice Chi-Chi Rodriguez (John Leguizamo) -- one of the losers that evening -- the charmed Vida and Noxeema agree to take the hopeless youngster under their joined wing. Soon the three set off on a madcap road trip across America and struggle to make it to Los Angeles in time.

MATINEE BABY will screen before the film:
In this raunchy and outlandish queer comedy, best friends Robby and Noah-Lee – employees at the historic Clinton Street Theater – find themselves confronted by a parade of increasingly wacky, genre-tinged suitors.
Featuring a key performance by drag star Carla Rossi, Matinee Baby will precede both special screenings of To Wong Foo. It's the queer comedy for movie lovers!
