The Wrecking Crew
Opens Friday, April 25


Official Website | Rotten Tomatoes

What th Funk Brothers did for Motown...The Wrecking Crew did, only bigger, for the West Coast Sound. Six years in a row in the 1960's and early 1970's, the Grammy for "Record of the Year" went to Wrecking Crew recordings. And now, THE WRECKING CREW tells the story in pictures and that oh, so glorious sound. The favorite songs of a generation are all here, presented by the people who made them for you. THE WRECKING CREW is a documentary film produced and directed by Denny Tedesco, son of legendary late Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco. The film tells the story of the unsung musicians that provided the backbeat, the bottom and the swinging melody that drove many of the number one hits of the 1960's. It didn't matter if it was Nat "King" Cole, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, The Byrds or The Beach Boys, these dedicated musicians brought the flair and musicianship that made the American "west coast sound" a dominant cultural force around the world. The film is a fun and moving tribute from Denny to his father and to the music, the times and to the secret star-making machine known only as "The Wrecking Crew". redemption.music.item1c2a2e1b3b1a3a1a2c1c1a1

Russian Ark
Saturday, April 25 - 1:00pm


Official Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Join the Tivoli’s Jerry Harrington for this Spring’s Friends of the Tivoli gathering. Russian filmmaker Alexander Sokurov broke boundaries in 2002 with his dreamlike vision of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. RUSSIAN ARK is the first feature-length narrative film shot in a single take and is shot from the point-of-view of an unseen narrator, as he explores the museum and travels through Russian history. The audience sees through his eyes as he witnesses Peter the Great abusing one of his generals; Catherine the Great desperately searching for a bathroom; and, in the grand finale, the sumptuous Great Royal Ball of 1913. An fantastic and beautiful feat of filmmaking shot in one day, but t rehearsed for months to time their movements precisely with the flow of the camera. Don’t miss seeing this on the big screen.item1c2a2e1b3b1a3a1a2c1c2a

Clouds of Sils Maria
Opens Friday, May 1


Official Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is an actress at the peak of her international career who is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years earlier. Back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young woman who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria, a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chlo Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself. item1c2a2e1b3b1a3a1a2c1c2b

Step inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons' first haute couture collection as its new artistic director - a true labor of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators.

Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter
Opens Friday, May 15


Official Website | Rotten Tomatoes

In this darkly comedic odyssey, Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, Pacific Rim) stars as Kumiko, a frustrated Office Lady whose imagination transcends the confines of her mundane life. Kumiko becomes obsessed with a mysterious, battered VHS tape of a popular film she's mistaken for a documentary, fixating on a scene where a suitcase of stolen cash is buried in the desolate, frozen landscape of North Dakota. Believing this treasure to be real, she leaves behind Tokyo and her beloved rabbit Bunzo to recover it - and finds herself on a dangerous adventure unlike anything she's seen in the movies. With KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER, indie mavericks the Zellner Bros. spin a strangely touching underdog fable, populated by eccentrics and elevated to sonic heights by a Sundance award-winning score from electro-indie outfit The Octopus Project, that will leave audiences rooting for the impossible.item1c2a2e1b3b1a3a1a2c1c2b3a

Turner Classics Festival Listing

Join the Tivoli’s Jerry Harrington to see this surprise rediscovered hit from last year's Turner Classics Film Festival.

This 1944 feature is a gem of high comedy, and since it was made in England, the Production Code did not apply, resulting in a scintillating mixture of bawdiness, double entendres, and even prodigious use of the word "hell,"which would be unthinkable in an American picture of the era. ON APPROVAL feels like a crazy combination of the Marx Brothers and Oscar Wilde, delivered in a deadpan style.Joining Clive Brook are Roland Culver, and pretty Googie Withers, is the great comedienne Beatrice Lillie in an extremely rare feature film appearance. The Canadian actress was so famous that she was known as "the funniest woman in the world," entertaining millions of people over a fifty-year career on stage, radio and television, but only a tiny amount on the big screenitem1c2a2e1b3b1a3a1a2c1c2a1

Iris
Opens Friday, May 22


Official Website | Rotten Tomatoes

IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life's sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. "I feel lucky to be working. If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows."item1c2a2e1b3b1a3a1a2c1c2b2b

and Disappeared

Powered by the antics of a mischievous centenarian on the run, blockbuster comedy The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared abounds with irreverent charm.

Determined to escape on his 100th birthday, he leaps out of a window and onto the nearest bus, kicking off an unexpected journey involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some wicked criminals, and an elephant named Sonya. Like an unruly Nordic cousin of Forrest Gump, Allan'ss youthful escapades and current adventures weave together into an offbeat treat for anyone whos young at heart.

Saint Laurent
Coming in June


Official Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Running counter to the current strain of wan, mechanical biopics, Bertrand Bonello's Saint Laurent toys deliriously with the genre's rules and limitations. Focusing on a dark, hedonistic, wildly creative decade (from 1967 to 77) in Yves Saint Laurent's life and career, Bonello considers the couturier (convincingly embodied by Gaspard Ulliel and later by Visconti stalwart Helmut Berger) as a myth, a brand, an avatar of his era. Bonello's star-studded supporting cast (including Louis Garrel, La Seydoux, Jrmie Renier, and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) serves as first-rate human mise en scne amid a kaleidoscopic torrent of lavish excess, retrospectively pieced together with a Proustian form of fast-and-loose association. As much as his subject and the gravitational pull he exerts in the hothouse environments of atelier and nightclub, Bonello is interested - as he was in House of Pleasures, his sumptuous portrait of a fin de siecle Parisian brothel - in cinema's potential both to capture and to warp the passage of time and our perception of it.item1c2a2e1b3b1a3a1a2c1c2b2

National Gallery
Coming Soon


Official Website | Rotten Tomatoes

London's National Gallery, one of the world's foremost art institutions, is itself portrayed as a brilliant work of art in this, Frederick Wiseman's 39th documentary and counting. Wiseman listens raptly as a panoply of docents decode the great canvases of Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Turner; he visits with the museum's restorers as they use magnifying glasses, tiny eye-droppers, scalpels, and Q-tips to repair an infinitesimal chip; he attends administrative meetings in which senior executives do (polite) battle with younger ones who want the museum to become less stodgy and more welcoming to a larger cross-section of the public. But most of all, we experience the joy of spending time with the aforementioned masters as well as Vermeer and Caravaggio, Titian and Velazquez, Pissarro and Rubens, and listen to the connoisseurs who discourse upon the aesthetic, historical, religious and psychological underpinnings of these masterpieces. item1c2a2e1b3b1a3a1a2c1
