PEARL movie poster button to buy tickets
PEARL
Rated R (1h 42m)
Horror

button to watch trailer
Trapped on her family's isolated farm, Pearl must tend to her ailing father under the bitter and overbearing watch of her devout mother. Hoping for a more glamorous life, Pearl's ambitions, temptations and repressions all collide to horrific effect. Starring Mia Goth. Directed by Ti West.

Review by Caitlin Stow:
Heralded by Martin Scorsese as evoking a "pure, undiluted love for cinema" and featuring an Oscar-worthy turn by star Mia Goth, PEARL breaks from the horror genre's love for doom and gloom, instead dazzling with a retro, Golden-Age-of-Hollywood color palette and imaginative scope to match. Goth's performance is deceptively tricky, as we are forced to empathize with the burgeoning psychopath even as she descends deeper into madness. As beautiful as it is disturbing; as bright as it is bloody; PEARL is a truly one-of-a-kind experience made for the big screen.

Face masks are optional.

ELEMENTAL: REIMAGINING OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH WILDFIRE
Not Rated (1h 21m)
Documentary

button to watch trailer
ELEMENTAL takes viewers on a journey with the top experts in the nation to better understand fire. We follow the harrowing escape from Paradise as the town ignited from wind-driven embers and burned within a few hours of the fire’s start. We visit fire labs where researchers torch entire houses to learn why some homes burn and others survive. We learn from Native Americans as they employ fire to benefit nature and increase community safety as they have for thousands of years. We follow researchers who work to understand the effects of climate on forests and the crucial role that natural forests play in storing vast amounts of carbon. Along the way we listen to people who have survived the deadliest fires to underscore the importance of this quest. Directed by Trip Jennings, with film score by Nick Jaina.
