Friday, September 20: Toy Story 4, Rated:G
Synopsis from Disney/Pixar: Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his longlost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.Fun for the whole family! Woody, Buzz and the rest of the Toy Story gang are back! We get to meet a few new friends too in their new adventure.
Friday, October 4: The Farewell, Rated: PG (for thematic material, brief language and some smoking)
Synopsis from A24 Films:In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken. With The Farewell, writer/director Lulu Wang has created a heartfelt celebration of both the way we perform family and the way we live it, masterfully interweaving a gently humorous depiction of the good lie in action with a richly moving story of how family can unite and strengthen us, often in spite of ourselves.

In the masterpiece completed just before his untimely death at age 39, poet Dylan Thomas gave the fullest expression to his sense of the magnificent flavor and variety of life. A moving and hilarious account of a spring day in a small Welsh coast town, Under Milk Wood begins with dreams and ghosts before dawn, moves through the brilliant, noisy day of the townspeople and closes as the “rain of dusk brings on the bawdy night.” As Randall Jarrell wrote: “It would be hard for any work of art to communicate more directly and funnily and lovingly what it is like to be alive.” Dylan Thomas called it “a play for voices,” and enthusiastic audiences agreed with critics, who called it “probably the richest . . . theatre experience of the season” (Saturday Review) and “a dazzling combination of poetic fireworks and music-hall humor” (NY Times). When it was finally broadcast on the BBC Third Programme, The New Statesman wrote: “It is lyrical, impassioned and funny, an Our Town given universality.”
The play is performed through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
