Upcoming In-Person

When two Paris nightclub jazz players (Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier) meet two vacationing American beauties (Joanne Woodward and Diahann Carroll), their passion for music is suddenly challenged by their desire for love. Score by Duke Ellington and a supporting appearance by Louis Armstrong. Tom Reney, host of NEPM's Jazz à la Mode, joins us to introduce the film.
Wed, 7/13
Stevie Wonder's legendary, synth-heavy score propels THE SECRET OF LIFE PLANTS—part pop symphony, part psychedelic nature documentary, and a marvel of scientific-spiritual wonderment toggles between ravishing time-lapse photography taken all over the globe and scenes of biologists in the lab and field.
Wed, 7/20
Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge. Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.

STREET MUSIC presents performances by 19 street musicians in seven cities across the United States. From San Francisco to New York, and Chicago to New Orleans, the film captures a cross-section of Americans filled with raw talent, showmanship, and hustle, and presents a time capsule of the fashion, architecture, and culture of the 1970s. Brian Meacham, Film Archivist at the Yale Film Archive, joins us for a post-film discussion.
