Murder on the Orient Express
 Murder on the Orient Express
From the novel by Agatha Christie, the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone's a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Kenneth Branaugh directs and stars as Hercule Poirot and the stellar cast includes Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, and Willem Dafoe. (PG-13, 114 mins)

"Despite the bright cinematography, there’s something quaint and comforting about this film and its brand of old-fashioned storytelling, where coincidences are extremely likely, everyone somehow knows a countess, and a man puts honor above all else." – April Wolfe, Village Voice

"Handsomely staged, exceptionally well-cast, and reasonably faithful, Branagh has revived Murder on the Orient Express in a highly pleasing fashion." – Blake Goble, Consequence of Sound

I, Tonya
 I, Tonya
Oscar Winner for Best Supporting Actress

In 1991, talented figure skater Tonya Harding becomes the first American woman to complete a triple axel during a competition. But her world soon comes crashing down when her ex-husband conspires to injure Nancy Kerrigan, a fellow Olympic hopeful, in a poorly conceived attack that forces the young woman to withdraw from the national championship. Harding's life and legacy instantly become tarnished as she's forever associated with one of the most infamous scandals in sports history. Oscar nominations for performances by Margot Robbie and Allison Janney. (R, 120 mins)

"Funny when it wants to be, poignant when it needs to be, and surprisingly effective in harnessing these deeper themes to a character who might otherwise be dismissed as a lightweight laughingstock." – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

"I, Tonya is funny as hell, but the pain is just as real. You'll laugh till it hurts." – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Phantom Thread
 Phantom Thread
Winner of Best Costume Oscar, and nominated for Best Picture

Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. Directed by Paul thomas Anderson (The Master, There Will Be Blood) (R, 130 mins)

"On first viewing, the captivating strangeness of the mood and the elegant threading of the plot are likely to hold your attention, but later you can go back to savor the lustrous colors, the fine-grained performances and the romantic mystery that holds the whole thing together." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"Absurdly pleasurable to watch and to listen to, an effortless display of poise from its camerawork and costumes to the characters and the things they say." – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

The Greatest Showman
 The Greatest Showman
Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination, Phineas Taylor Barnum or P.T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman) is an ambitious young man who opens a wax museum but soon shifts his focus to the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; when the showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life – his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be loved and accepted by the public? This hugely successful movie musical also stars Michelle Williams and Zac Efron. (PG, 105 mins)

"The Greatest Showman, directed with verve and panache by Michael Gracey, is an unabashed piece of pure entertainment, punctuated by 11 memorable songs composed by Oscar- and Tony-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul." – Sheila O'Malley,

"Ultimately, the whole point of the picture comes down to the tune “This Is Me.” The crux of the song, led by the impressive Keala Settle, is to be comfortable in your own skin no matter what the masses may say." – Dan Mecca, The Film Stage

 BPM (Beats Per Minute)
Tues, March 20 at 7:00pm – Presented with LGBT Life Center

In Paris in the early 1990s, a group of activists goes to battle for those stricken with HIV/AIDS, taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies in bold, invasive actions. The organization is ACT UP, and its members, many of them gay and HIV-positive, embrace their mission with a literal life-or-death urgency. Amid rallies, protests, fierce debates and ecstatic dance parties, the newcomer Nathan falls in love with Sean, the group's radical firebrand, and their passion sparks against the shadow of mortality as the activists fight for a breakthrough. In French with subtitles. (135 mins)

"BPM is vital for the history it depicts, but it’s also important in the here and now, as a testament to public action — even messy, not-always-effective public action." – David Edelstein, New York Magazine

She battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now – a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman. From Chile. In Spanish with subtitles.

"A Fantastic Woman is at once a straightforward story of self-assertion and defiance and a complex study of the nuances of identity. " – A.O. Scott, The New York Times
