FEBRUARY 3 @ 1 PM: EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE
The fate of the world lies in the hands of an overwhelmed immigrant middle-aged mother. As bizarre and bewildering dangers emerge from the many possible universes, she must learn to channel her newfound powers and fight to save everyone.
Also, if you think you have tax troubles? While saving the world, she has to settle up with the most hilarious IRS agent ever, Jamie Lee Curtis, who has been nominated for her first Academy Award.
FEBRUARY 10 @ 1 PM: SUMMER OF SOUL
2022 Academy Award for Best Documentary, Summer of Soul is Philadelphia’s Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, powerful and transporting documentary—part music film, part historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present. The feature includes concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.
FEBRUARY 17 @ 1 PM: TILL
Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was brutally lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie’s poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother’s ability to change the world.
FEBRUARY 24 @ 1 PM: BLACK PANTHER WAKANDA FOREVER
Queen Ramonda, played by Angela Bassett who is nominated for Academy Award supporting actress, fights to protect her nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with Nakia and Everett Ross to forge a new path for their beloved kingdom.
