Rose Theatre

New York

It happened again last night, that exciting discovery of a great new film that I hope to be able to be bring to the Rose to share with you. The movie is called GRAVITY HERO, and it had its world premiere last evening at the 46th Dance on Camera Festival in New York. It's a deeply moving memoir by choreographer Trey McIntyre. In 2014, after ten years of building his dance company in Boise, Idaho, to great acclaim, he shut it down. Its sudden and mysterious end is the backdrop of this introspective film which explores themes of creativity, loss and transformation embodied in the dances choreographed during the company's life.

      And although I won't be able to see it while I'm here, another great series just opened at BAMcinematek that will coming soon to the Rose. It's called PIONEERS: FIRST WOMEN FILMMAKERS which offers a thrilling look at the variety of films made by women, most before they won the right to vote. These are women who - as directors, producers, writers and stars helped create cinema but whose contributions remain undervalued or ignored.

     On the home front, I'm gratified that so many people have also appreciated LEAVE NO TRACE. Debra Granik is a smart, sensitive director. The film moves up to the Starlight on Friday for another week.

     MAMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN is also holding over for another week, dancing its way into the Rosebud this Friday. And MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT should delight action fans. A few tickets remain for ROMEO + JULIET,our Late Night @ the Starlight show this Saturday. 

REMINDER: If you have tickets to our free member appreciation event this Sunday at 12:00 with YELLOW SUBMARINE, the doors will open at 11:30. The event is sold out.
