Momentarily selected for Best Picture at the 2017 Academy Awards, La La Land is a joyous throwback to a bygone genre. Written and directed by Academy Award (R) nominee Damien Chazelle, La La Land tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams. La La Land boasts thrillingly assured direction, powerful performances, and an irresistible excess of heart.
Tues. April 4
(R-1984) 2 Hrs. (Blu-ray) In English (Drama, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Romance)
The State is joining art film houses across the country in a NATIONAL EVENT DAY screening of the movie 1984 (starring Richard Burton, Suzanna Hamilton and John Hurt, who passed away Jan. 25). The date April 4 was chosen because it's the day George Orwell's protagonist Winston Smith begins rebelling against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary. Orwell’s novel begins with the sentence "It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen." His portrait of a government that manufactures their own facts, demands total obedience, and demonizes foreign enemies, has never been timelier. We hope you will join us in taking a stand for our most basic values: freedom of speech, respect for our fellow human beings, and the simple truth that there is no such thing as "alternative facts." By doing what we do best, showing a movie, we believe our cinemas can foster community conversation about basic human rights and respect for one an all.
