Read more below.
Radio Dreams (4PM at The Times)
I mean, we are a radio station. It’s Radio Dreams. It only makes sense, right?
The Last Laugh (4PM at The Avalon)
The premise of this film is, “Can the Holocaust be funny?” Bring a friend, it will certainly be a good conversation starter.
Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise (6:30PM at the Times)
Author, poet, intellectual, icon. Maya Angelou gets her story told. A must see.
Sonita (7PM at Fox Bay Cinema)
Sonita tells the story of Sonita Alizadeh who is an Afghan immigrant living in Iran. She aspires to be a rapper who writes social injustice. As a rapper in spite of all her obstacles she confronts in Iran and her conservative family. In harsh contrast to her goal is the plan of her family – strongly advanced by her mother – to make her a bride and sell her to a new family for the price of $9,000.
Kaili Blues (8PM at the Oriental)
Contemplative art house cinema with a 40 minute unbroken shot. This one is for us film nerds. Nerd out tonight.
