Battle of the Sexes

click image for more information BATTLE OF THE SEXES (PG)
In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s World #1 Billie Jean King and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time.  As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court.

HOKUSAI: BEYOND THE GREAT WAVE
Filmed in Japan and the UK, the film focuses on the work, life and times of the celebrated Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). Hokusai spent his life studying and celebrating humanity, as well as exploring in detail the natural and spiritual worlds.  Early in his career Hokusai trained in the popular Ukiyo-e style – the art of the ‘floating world’, which featured courtesans, poets and kabuki actors. In his later work he focused increasingly on nature and above all on the celebrated volcano Mt Fuji, which for Hokusai represented a sacred source of longevity, even immortality.

JOHN LE CARRÉ: AN EVENING WITH GEORGE SMILEY
Captured live from London’s Royal Festival Hall
A unique celebration of one of the world’s greatest writers, as he shares the secrets behind the creation of his most beloved character.
From his extraordinary Cold War novels – such as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – to his powerful descriptions of the arms trade in The Night Manager, and the War on Terror in A Most Wanted Man, the writing of John le Carré has come to define the last half century. In this one-off event, the author discusses the full breadth of his career, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the tubby, bespectacled spy, George Smiley.
Coinciding with the publication date of his new novel, A Legacy of Spies, the event will include readings from the book by the author. The novel sees the return of some of le Carré’s most iconic Cold War characters, including George Smiley and his trusted lieutenant, Peter Guillam, as their past comes back to claim them in the present. With a rare question and answer session, this will be an unmissable opportunity to experience one of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words.

RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD (14A)
When recalling Link Wray’s shivering guitar classic, “Rumble,” Martin Scorsese marvels, “It is the sound of that guitar . . . the aggression.” Wray was the first to deploy thumping power chords and hone distortion, carving out a new guitar sound that influenced rock and roll forever. But as a Native American, Wray’s music was a threat-and it was treated as such. Blues pioneer Charlie Patton, cherished jazz singer Mildred Bailey, and metaphysical wizard Jimi Hendrix are among the many music greats who have Native American heritage and have created their distinctive music amid the attempted cleansing of indigenous culture from the country. Their music was not even meant to exist. Using playful re-creations and little-known stories, alongside concert footage, audio archives, and interviews with living legends, this deeply insightful film cements how some of our most treasured artists and songs found their inspiration in ancient, native melodies and harmonies that were infused with a desire to resist. You’ll never listen to your favorite rock and roll classics the same way again.

THE EMOJI MOVIE(G)

Each emoji only has one facial expression — that is, with the exception of Gene, an exuberant emoji who, because he was born without a filter, has numerous expressions. Instead of being happy to be diverse and unique, Gene just wants to be “normal” like the other emojis. He gets his best friend Hi-5 and notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak to join him on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone to find the code that will fix Gene. They soon encounter a greater danger that’s threatening the phone and the fate of all emojis. The three unlikely friends have to move quickly or their world will be deleted forever.

LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut “Lucky”, is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.
