COVID-19 Update: We are beyond excited about re-opening-  when the time is right. Our Covid-19 Safety plan has been approved, but our top priority remains the well-being of our community at large. And so we are choosing to be extra-cautious, and remain closed for the moment while we continue to closely monitor this ever developing situation.   Expect a few simple changes that will not only positively affect the health, safety, and peace of mind of our guests, but should also improve the cinema going experience and quality of service. 😊 Meanwhile let's ALL be a part of the solution: WEAR YOUR MASKS IN PUBLIC.  Sign up for our Newsletter, and follow us on FB and Insta for more announcements soon!!!

JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE

Using interviews and rare archival footage, John Lewis: Good Trouble chronicles Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 79 years old, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figure prominently in his life.

The more you watch Lewis, the more fascinating he gets. - San Francisco Chronicle

TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM

From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio to ‘70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room, Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own work. Inspired to write because no one took a “little black girl” seriously, Morrison reflects on her lifelong deconstruction of the master narrative. Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature and personality, the film includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed novels, including “The Bluest Eye,” “Sula” and “Song of Solomon,” her role as an editor of iconic African-American literature and her time teaching at Princeton University. 

To have the towering Morrison (1931-2019), then 88, willing to face your cameras — head on, in fact — and tell her story as candidly, heartily and humanely as she does here, is a singular gift that keeps on giving throughout the film’s two captivating hours. - Los Angeles Times

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO

ATTN: THERE WILL BE A SPECIAL COMMUNITY DIALOGUE ORGANIZED AROUND THIS FILM BY THE EUREKA NAACP. MORE DETAILS COMING SOON!!!

Director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished - a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.

A brilliant piece of filmic writing, one that bursts with fierce urgency, not just for the long-unresolved history it seeks to confront, but also in its attempt to understand what is happening here, right now. - Washington Post

*All our proceeds from this title will be donated directly to our local NAACP.

Saint Frances (Indie/Comedy)

"Anchored by delicately moving performances from O’Sullivan and the amazing Williams, Saint Frances is a quietly riveting film that slowly but surely draws you in. " - Los Angeles Times
 
After an accidental pregnancy turned abortion, a deadbeat nanny finds an unlikely friendship with the six-year old she's charged with protecting.  "Saint Frances approaches an array of weighty issues with empathy, humor, and grace -- and marks star and writer Kelly O'Sullivan as a tremendous talent to watch." - Rotten Tomatoes Consensus
 
"Saint Frances goes down easy. It’s refreshingly small and intimate, and is specific on the lives of very particular women without overreaching to look more politically salient or strike zeitgeist concerns" - The A.V. Club
