EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SEX* (*BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK)
Friday, May 31, 8 PM 
Sunday, June 2, 2 PM

A hysterical comedy from Woody Allen's "early, funny" years. This is one of the all-time-great laugh-out-loud movies. It's both a fearless look at the sexual climate of its age as well as a perfect encapsulation of Allen's comedic genius. This film marked a real step forward for Allen as a filmmaker and the its wild, intercutting sequences build to a magnificent, uh, climax as Allen plays a neurotic sperm. More info and tickets >>

A HERO NEVER DIES
Friday, June 14, 8 PM
Sunday, June 16, 2 PM
