Friday, January 24, 2020 • 7:00 p.m
Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death. Top critic Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal writes: “An entertainment that’s as smart, witty, stylish and exhilarating as any movie lover could wish for.” Free movie admission with reasonably-priced concessions available. *Rated PG-13* (for thematic elements including brief violence, some strong language, sexual references, and drug material).
NPC Movie Night - Dark Waters (2019)
Friday, February 21, 2020 • 7:00 p.m
Inspired by a shocking true story, a tenacious attorney (Mark Ruffalo) uncovers a dark secret that connects a growing number of unexplained deaths due to one of the world’s largest corporations. In the process, he risks everything -- his future, his family, and his own life -- to expose the truth. Film critic Dustin Chase of the Galveston Daily News writes: “Dark Waters is an unconventional horror film that affects 99% of all humans, you just don’t know how or why until you see the film.” Top critic David Edelstein of the New York Magazine/Vulture adds: “The bad guys have all the money but at least we have indie filmmakers and movie stars like Ruffalo.” Free movie admission with reasonably-priced concessions available. *Rated PG-13* (for thematic content, some disturbing images and strong language).
NPC Movie Night - A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019)
Friday, March 13, 2020 • 7:00 p.m
Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy-winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor. Alci Rengifo, film critic at Entertainment Voice, observed: “In a world where being crude and mean are the norm, where everyone feels stressed, here is a film with a wonderful lead performance to remind us that kindness can be the most radical act of all.” Free movie admission with reasonably-priced concessions available. *Rated PG* (for some strong thematic material, a brief fight, and some mild language).

Sophia’s dysfunctional royal family includes notoriously mad father King George III, drug-dependent mother Queen Charlotte, sex addict brother Ernest, and five eccentric sisters (a confident stutterer, an agorophobe, an artist, a bossy fashion plate, and an ardent teen). When Sophia is raped and fights to bring the criminal to justice, her family seeks to mastermind a cover-up of the secret for fear of losing the throne. With its timely themes and strong roles for women, The Subject has been a popular new play with 21 readings (and counting). The Subject was commissioned by the U.S.-U.K. Fulbright LUSK Award, had a United Nations Orange Day reading in London, and was developed in Antaeus Playwrights Lab.
