12 years a slaveBased on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom: 12 YEARS A SLAVE. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofer), a free black man from 12-years-a-slave-faceupstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life. Written by Fox Searchlight trailer

all-is-lost-movie-posterALL IS LOST is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience. Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Robert Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition, and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face. trailer

Advance tickets now available online for LAST GOSPEL OF THE PAGAN BABIES (Dec 5) and DARK STAR ORCHESTRA (Feb 11)
