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
In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras was in the process of constructing a film about abuses of national security in post-9/11 America 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)

"Citizenfour is a gripping record of how our rulers are addicted to gaining more and more power and control over us – if we let them."
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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.
