Week of September 19 - 25

Greetings from Rialto Cinemas Elmwood!

This Ain't No Mouse Music: The Story of Chris Strachwitz and Arhoolie Records opens Friday! Locally-based (El Cerrito) Arhoolie Records stars along with its founder in this wonderful documentary! Special bonus - after the Friday, September 19 7pm show - a Q&A with Directors Maureen Gosling & Chris Simon, along with Arhoolie founder Chris Strachwitz AND live music from Michael Doucet!

Fans of director Terry Gilliam's trademark visual aesthetic will find everything they've been yearning for in his madcap science fiction epic Zero Theorem about discovering the meaning of life - or the complete lack of one here Friday. Mary Corliss writing in TIME says, "At 72, Gilliam still has the cartoonist's imagination from his Monty Python days, and social rage expressed not in a frown but a giggle. The Zero Theorem is a spectacle that demands to be cherished - as long as the society Gilliam portrays is a satire, not a prophesy." Join us!

In addition to the National Theatre Live season happening now we invite you to join us for Shakespeare's Globe on Stage, Royal Opera, Royal Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet and more wonderful art exhibition films starting with Hermitage Revealed: 250 Years in the Making! Branch out and try some of these new offerings! This coming week don't miss A Streetcar Named Desire starring Gillian Anderson from The Young Vic, our second National Theatre Live presentation of the series. Streetcar will be on screen this Tuesday, September 23 at 7pm. Tickets are here.

An original tale with keen observations of human relationships and a distinct and comedic voice, The One I Love continues this week. We continue to enjoy The Hundred-Foot Journey starring Dame Helen Mirren. This tale of a standoff between classical French cuisine and wonderful Indian fare. In the end there is a magical combination of cultures and a very hungry audience!

Best regards,
