Rose Theatre

Fathers & Daughters

I love the synchronicity of it; two films beginning within a week of each other about father-daughter relationships. The popular HEARTS BEAT LOUD opens this Friday, and the stunning LEAVE NO TRACE opens next Friday. And also opening this week, SUMMER 1993, a beautifully told, autobiographical story about six-year-old Frida, who has moved from Barcelona to Catalan to live with her aunt and uncle. Time passes differently in her new home, and the nature that surrounds her is mysterious. Punctuated by moments of youthful exuberance and mature ruminations, this coming-of-age drama is an extraordinary moving snapshot of being a child in an adult world, anchored by flawless performances by its two young stars.

     "Some creatures are able to grown new limbs. Frida, given more than half a chance after demanding it, achieves something no less remarkable. She grows new joy and hope." -Wall Street Journal. "True and captivating." -The Hollywood Reporter

     The riveting drama THE RIDER, also about family dynamics, moves downstairs to the Rosebud on Friday for its 3rd week.

     After a record-breaking run of eight weeks for a documentary at the Rose and Starlight, RBG is finally concluding its engagement this week. While repeat viewings account for some of the total, nearly 4,000 tickets were sold to this profile of Justice Ginsberg. National articles have appeared, asking the question, Why the popularity of RBG and WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? I share the opinion that it's a response to the times we live in, that the inherent character of Ruth Ginsberg and Fred Rogers is a positive message in divisive times. Thank you Julie Cohen, Betsy West and Morgan Neville for recognizing and directing such great inspiring stories.

     Tickets go on sale this Thursday to Met members only, and only at the box office, for the 2018 / 2019 Metropolitan Opera season. And tickets will be available to the general public, both online and at the box office beginning July 18th. The season line-up is found on the Rose homepage under Coming Soon.   

     ALL ABOUT EVE and NOTORIOUS are both sold out, but we have another special event coming up August 11th and 12th. Los Angeles film scholar Ted Walch returns the Starlight for an in depth look at three landmark films - CHINATOWN, CHILDREN OF MEN and Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN. 

     Dust off your dancing shoes, as MAMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN opens Friday, July 20th.
