2DaysPosterSandra (Oscar Winner Marion Cotillard) has just been released from the hospital to find that she no longer has a job. According to management, the only way Sandra can hope to regain her position at the factory is to convince her co-workers to sacrifice their much-needed yearly bonuses. Now, over the course of one weekend, Sandra must confront each co-worker individually in order to win a majority of their votes before time runs out. With TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, the Dardennes have turned a relevant social inquiry into a powerful statement on community solidarity, once again delivering a film that is simple on the surface but alive with both compassion and wisdom.

the-second-best-exotic-marigold-hotel-posterSonny (Dev Patel) prepares to expand the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful while planning his impending wedding to Sunaina (Tena Desae) in this sequel to director John Madden’s beloved film. As the contented residents of the hotel settle into their new lives, Sonny strives to balance the demands of planning his wedding with the responsibilities of purchasing a new property. Meanwhile, new guests Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig) arrive to find there is only one vacancy. Perhaps with a little innovation new co-manager Muriel (Maggie Smith) can find a means of accommodating the hotel’s latest occupants, but she’ll have her work cut out for her as Douglas (Bill Nighy) and Evelyn (Judi Dench) begin their new careers in Jaipur while flirting with the idea of a serious romance. With romance in the air it’s no wonder that Madge (Celia Imrie) has her pick of handsome suitors, and as stalwart Muriel safeguards the many secrets of the vivacious residents, Sonny and Sunaina learn that planning a traditional Indian wedding can be a true test of commitment.

MrTurnerThis film explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

Brunch with Oscar IS BACK!

Starting Sunday, February 1, and continuing every Sunday this February, Civic Theatre of Allentown will celebrate the Academy Awards by hosting its third annual ‘Brunch with Oscar’ film series.

This year, the Sunday morning screenings showcase four different films: It Happened One Night (1935), The Sting (1974), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1976), West Side Story (1962), each of which had success at the Academy Awards.

Before the film screenings, a light complimentary breakfast will be served, featuring foods that reflect the film to be shown. We think this will be a chance to celebrate these films in a fun, different way.

The series kicked off last year with a salute to Award-Winning performances. This year, the focus is on Best Director.

Brunch at 10:30 am & Movie at 11:00 am

General Admission: $12
Members: $10

Here’s how the production is billed: “Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and the deformed slave Caliban. When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach.”
