This Friday we are opening The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, Far From the Madding Crowd, and Phoenix. Jurassic World will hold for another week. Vacation, Diary of a Teenage Girl, Man from Uncle, and Shaun the Sheep will end Thursday.

Next week on Sept. 25, we are booked for The Intern, Hotel Transylvania 2 and we are working hard to open Everest on the Sept. 25. Universal hasn’t committed yet but we have pressed them with the benefits of opening this film in our mountain town.  We did not make the cut for Black Mass with Johnny Depp this week but will open it as soon as possible.

The Martian, Pan, Bridge of Spies, Goosebumps, Spectre 007, Peanut Movie, and Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 2 are all on our short list.

Far From the Madding Crowd: Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, “Far From the Madding Crowd” FAR FROM is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.

Phoenix: A spellbinding mystery of identity, illusion, and deception unfolds against the turmoil of post-World War II Germany in the stunning new film from acclaimed director Christian Petzold (Barbara, Jerichow). Nelly (Nina Hoss), a German-Jewish nightclub singer, has survived a concentration camp, but with her face disfigured by a bullet wound. After undergoing reconstructive surgery, Nelly emerges with a new face, one similar but different enough that her former husband, Johnny (Ronald Zehrfeld), doesn’t recognize her. Rather than reveal herself, Nelly walks into a dangerous game of duplicity and disguise as she tries to figure out if the man she loves may have been the one who betrayed her to the Nazis. Evoking the shadows and haunted mood of post-war Berlin, Phoenix weaves a complex tale of a nation’s tragedy and a woman’s search for answers as it builds towards an unforgettable, heart-stopping climax. (C) IFC Films Rating: PG-13 (for some thematic elements and brief suggestive material) Genre: Drama. Language: German. Subtitles: English
