Rocky’s Review
Dev Patel Stars in The Green Knight

Ten years ago David Lowery was virtually an unknown filmmaker. Since then he has made Disney's PETE'S DRAGON and Robert Redford's THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN, as well as the hit A GHOST STORY. Through it all, Lowery has remained an innovative and unpredictable storyteller whose work is steeped in awe-inspiring moments that retain an intimate quality irrespective of their scale. And now with THE GREEN KNIGHT - an hypnotic riff on the fantasy genre - a plucky adventurer endures ghosts, giants, a strange love triangle and a talking fox over the course of his quest that forces him to confront his own mortality. "A dazzling, dizzying fever dream." - Chicago Sun-Times. "...cinema visionary David Lowery delivers a modern masterpiece." - ABC News. THE GREEN KNIGHT opens this Friday (8/20) in the Rose. (Excerpted from IndieWire)

     New to our Film Library this week (8/20) is BARBARA LEE: SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER, a stirring profile of the California Representative who for two decades has been a steadfast voice for human rights, peace and equality in the U.S. Congress. (And the only member of Congress to vote against war in Afghanistan in 2001.) "A compelling and inspiring profile." -SFILM


UPDATED COVID SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT


     As many of you may already be aware, beginning tomorrow, Friday, August 20, the Rose will require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and photo ID for all moviegoers. Proof of vaccination may inlcude your vaccination card, a legible copy of the card on your phone, or an official digital pass along with your photo ID. Masks remain required when not eating or drinking.

     This decision was not made lightly, and not without long conversations with my staff, along with customer feedback since our re-opening. We recognize that this limits access to some patrons, but like many other organizations, we are taking this temporary measure to protect our community and our staff. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we continue to navigate the ever-changing COVID landscape.
