Week of July 18 - July 25

Greetings from Rialto Cinemas Elmwood!

We are delighted to bring the fascinating documentary Code Black to Berkeley this week! Here physician Ryan McGarry gives us unprecedented access to America's busiest Emergency Department. Amidst real life-and-death situations, McGarry follows a dedicated team of charismatic, young doctors-in-training as they wrestle openly with both their ideals and with the realities of saving lives in a complex and overburdened system. Code Black offers a tense, doctor's-eye view, right into the heart of the healthcare debate - bringing us face to face with America's only 24/7 safety net. Jeanette Catsoulis names Code Black a New York Times Critics' pick in her review.

We don't want to confuse you but this week's lineup has two chef movies - Le Chef and Chef. Le Chef is in French with English subtitles and Chef is American in English. Both are comedies that follow chefs trying to get their lives and careers back on track. Here is the "little man" out of his chair review of Le Chef from the San Francisco Chronicle and the Washington Post review of Chef. Enjoy them both but make sure you have a meal plan before coming in - you'll be hungry coming out!

Snowpiercer continues this week!

We are delighted to bring our first Lincoln Center Theater presentation: The Nance starring Nathan Lane to Berkeley! There are only two more presentations Tuesday, July 22 and Thursday, July 24! Finally, what if you yearn for comedy? We invite you to Monty Python Live (mostly) which will be presented here Wednesday, August 6th and 20th. Tickets are on sale now!

Best regards,
