Unrated / 73 mins. 
Following the work of social worker Dan Cohen, Alive Inside reveals how music can awaken memories and emotions that have been asleep for years, sometimes decades.
In an effort to bring music to the lives of nursing home residents, Dan Cohen visits John, a quiet Army vet who served at Los Alamos, who perks up at the sound of the Andrews Sisters. Denise, a Schubert fan, pushes away the walking frame she’s been using every day for two years and begins to dance. Inert and depressed, the Cab Calloway-loving Henry is fully rejuvenated, swaying his arms and crooning in perfect pitch. Demonstrating how connecting the elderly to the music they love not only combats memory loss but also supplements a broken health care system often indifferent to interpersonal connections, Alive Inside is moving, inspiring, and worthy of attention.

(UK/1964/dir by Richard Lester)
G / 87 mins
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night by enjoying the new digital restoration of one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time!
Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day’s Night, in which the bandmates play wily, exuberant versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever.
Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell,” A Hard Day’s Night, which re-conceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is a deliriously entertaining film.

A Short History of Decay

July 27
Sunday 3:00
(USA / 2013 / Directed by Michael Maren)
In Person: Writer/Director Michael Maren
Generational differences provide both insight and humor in this unusual story about a failed Brooklyn writer who visits his ailing parents in Florida.
Soon after Nathan’s (Bryan Greenberg) girlfriend dumps him, he learns that his father has had a stroke. Flying home to his parents’ spacious home in Florida, where his dad is recovering and his mom is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, Nathan brings with him a New York City ennui. While he spends most of his time sitting around feeling sorry for himself, to spice things up he chats up a French girl at a bar, has lunch with his mother’s sunny manicurist, and bickers with his visiting older brother. As Nathan gradually begins to question the emptiness of his idleness, director Michael Maren’s story subtly transcends its particulars to become a resonant and revelatory film.
R / 94 mins.
