5 Broken Cameras
Friday, May 3, 2013

Playing at 1:00, 3:30, 6:00 and 8:30 pm.

2011/Palestine/NR/90 min
Director: Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi

Six years ago in the Palestinian farming community of Bil’in, Emad Burnat purchased a video camera to record the birth of his son Jibreel. This joyous moment for his family, however, coincided with the invasion of Israeli bulldozers set to make way for Jewish colonists. Burnat joined in with his town’s peaceful resistance against the advancing settlers, documenting his involvement with the five titular cameras that became casualties of the ongoing border conflict, smashed or shot over the course of five years of harrowing demonstrations. The resulting footage, which Burnat reconstructed collaboratively with Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi, presents a microcosm of an international tragedy reframed through the lenses of one family’s experience. However you feel about the Israel/Palestine issue when you walk into the theater, there is little doubt you will walk out feeling differently. A brilliant, wrenching, devastating film, not to be missed. In Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles.

“A hugely powerful, moving study of a small village’s stand against overwhelming state power. Despite all the suffering and injustice, the final message is one of optimism that feels neither facile nor tacked-on.”
-Philip Kemp, Total Film

“A touching and revelatory piece of film-making about the plights of real people living in an uncertain world.”
-David Parkinson, Empire

“The immediacy with which it bears witness to injustice is powerful and affecting, as are the images of joy he captures amid the burning olive trees.”
-Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

The Princess Bride
Friday, May 3, 2013

Playing at 11 am

Friday Night Flicks – Tickets $3 or 2 for $5

1987/USA/PG/98 min
Director: Rob Reiner
Cast: Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin and Robin Wright

“The Princess Bride” offers a tongue-in-cheek fairy tale depicting stable boy-turned-pirate Westley’s journey to rescue Buttercup (Robin Wright), his true love, away from the evil prince (Chris Sarandon), whom she had agreed to marry five years after learning of what she had believed to be news of Westley’s death. With help from Prince Humperdinck’s disgruntled former employee Miracle Max (Billy Crystal), swordsman Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), and a very large man named Fezzik (Andre the Giant), the star-crossed lovers are reunited.
