(105 R) 2022 Directed and screenplay by Joel Cohen, based on the stage play by William Shakespeare., director
Ends Jan 27
If you are a Shakespearean expert or if this is your initiation, you are in for an unforgettable night at the movies. In a daring leap of faith, director/writer Joel Coen's first movie made without his brother/collaborator Ethan is a bold new vision of Shakespeare's most revered tragedy. Set in a haunted Scotland, the drama is stripped down to the essentials, with a chilling connection to the wickedness of power-hungry people, no matter the era. Coen's casting of Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, two Oscar winners who happen to be among the best actors working today, makes The Tragedy of Macbeth a must-see experience on the big (movie) screen!

(123 R) 2021 Spain Written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar., director
Opens Jan 28
Mid-pandemic, Penelope Cruz got a promise from her eight-time collaborator Pedro Almodóvar: “I am writing something for you.” What he wrote resulted in a masterpiece that is on most Top Ten lists and won Cruz the Best Actress prize at the Venice Film Festival. In a Madrid maternity ward, a photographer in her 30s (Cruz) and a frightened teenager (Milena Smit) come together as single women about to give birth. With Almodóvar at his best, women’s lives are informed by melodrama (their babies are inadvertently switched), and politics, as we discover that Cruz’ character working at one of Franco’s mass graves, searching for her great-grandfather’s bones. And, like many women around the world, a way to move towards understanding and forgiveness.
