One Day, Four Films – Binge at the BCT

November 18, 2018 @ 2:00 PM - 10:00 PM

We are screening four films at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on Sunday, Nov 18th.

EATING ANIMALS (2pm)  How much do you know about the food that’s on your plate? Produced and narrated by Natalie Portman, based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals is an eye-opening look at the environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming. Tracing the history of food production in the United States, the film charts how farming has gone from local and sustainable to a corporate Frankenstein monster that offers cheap eggs, meat, and dairy at a steep cost: the exploitation of animals; the risky use of antibiotics and hormones; and the pollution of our air, soil, and water. Spotlighting farmers who have pushed backed against industrial agriculture with more humane practices, Eating Animals offers attainable, commonsense solutions to a growing crisis while making the case that ethical farming is not only an animal rights issue but one that affects every aspect of our lives. (94 min)  Watch the Trailer  Eating Animals is presented in part by Global Gifts and Bloomingfoods    

TEA WITH THE DAMES (4pm)  What happens when four legends of British stage and screen get together? Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright are among the most celebrated actresses of our time, with scores of iconic performances, decades of wisdom, and innumerable Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, and BAFTAs between them. They are also longtime friends who hereby invite you to join them for a weekend in the country as they reminisce, and share their candid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight. Bursting with devilish wit and whip-smart insights, Tea With The Dames is a remarkable opportunity to spend time with four all-time greats—up close and unfiltered. Watch the Trailer
Tea with the Dames is presented in part by Cup and Kettle Tea Company

In THE BOOKSHOP (6pm), a young, free-spirited widow risks everything to open a bookshop in a sleepy seaside English village in 1959. She brings about a surprising cultural awakening in a town that has not changed for centuries by stocking contemporary works such as Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 and Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita. Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson and Bill Nighy star in this wonderful adaptation of the beloved novel by Penelope Fitzgerald. (113 min)

LOVE, GILDA (8:15) In her own words, trail-blazing comedienne Gilda Radner reflects on her life and career. Weaving together her recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with friends (Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer and Martin Short), rare home movies and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by Gilda (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong), LOVE, GILDA opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.
