Nightcrawler
 Nightcrawler
NIGHTCRAWLER is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story. (R, 117 mins)

St. Vincent
 St. Vincent
Golden Globe nominations for Best Picture and Best Actor. The singular Bill Murray stars in the comical story of a young boy who develops an unusual friendship with the cantankerous old guy next door. Maggie (Melissa McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year-old son, Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Naomi Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine—the race track, a strip club and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart. Written and directed by Theodore Melfi. (PG13, 102 mins)

The Imitation Game
 The Imitation Game
This historical thriller is the true story of Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch in an Oscar-worthy performance), a pioneer of modern-day computing who is credited with cracking the Nazi German Enigma code during the darkest days of World War II. He and his brilliant team of scholars, mathematicians, linguists, and chess champions who worked at Britain's top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, were given carte blanche by Prime Minister Winston Churchill to do their intelligence work in a race against time. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment who turned against him when his sexual life was exposed. Directed by Morten Tyldum with a screenplay by Graham Moore, based on the biography “Alan Turing: The Enigma” by Andrew Hodges. Winner of the top prize at the Toronto International Film Festival. (PG13, 113 mins)

“Dominating it all is Cumberbatch, whose charisma, tellingly modulated and naturalistic array of eccentricities, Sherlockian talent at indicating a mind never at rest and knack for simultaneously portraying physical oddness and attractiveness combine to create an entirely credible portrait of genius at work.”—Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

Citizenfour
 Citizenfour
Academy Award Nominee: Shortlist for Best Documentary
Filmmaker Laura Poitras was in the process of constructing a film about the abuses of national security state when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as “citizen four,” who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA. The following June, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong to meet with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is a real-life thriller that unfolds before our eyes. Poitras is a masterful storyteller and her film is both a great character study of Snowden and a narrative that will leave you on the edge of your seat. (120 mins)

Keep On Keepin` On
 Keep On Keepin` On
Sat and Sun, Dec 20 & 21

Shot over the course of five years by first-time filmmaker Al Hicks, Keep On Keepin' On depicts the remarkable story of 93-year-old jazz legend Clark Terry. A living monument to the Golden Era of Jazz, Terry—a mentor to Miles Davis—is among the few performers ever to have played in both Count Basie's and Duke Ellington's bands. Today, after a life spent working with and teaching the most totemic figures in jazz history, Terry continues to attract and cultivate budding talents. Keep On Keepin' On highlights his friendship with the preternaturally gifted Justin Kauflin, a blind, 23-year-old piano prodigy who lived in Virginia Beach and attended Salem High School. Not long after Kauflin is invited to compete in an elite Jazz competition, Terry's health takes a turn for the worse. As the clock ticks, we see two friends confront the toughest challenges of their lives. (R, 86 mins)

Justin Kauflin will be in attendance at each show to present his film.
