Rose Theatre

Rosamond Purcell

If you missed the nearly sold out showing of AN ART THAT NATURE MAKES: THE WORK OF ROSAMOND PURCELL in December, as part of our popular Community Arts Film Series, this weekend brings you one more opportunity. We're bringing back this beloved profile of photographer Rosamond Purcell for two more shows - Saturday (1/6) and Sunday (1/7) at 1:15 in the Rose. "What kind of genius is Rosamond Purcell? Is she an artist? A scholar? A documentarian? A living cabinet of wonders? Her originality defies category." -Jonathan Safran Foer, Author.

     And speaking of mesmerizing work and great artists, our sneak preview on January 14th of LEANING INTO THE WIND: ANDY GOLDSWORTHY is nearly sold out;12 tickets remain. "Ravishingly beautiful," "fragile," and "luminous"were used to describe Andy Goldsworthy's art in Thomas Riedelsheimer's earlier film, RIVERS AND TIDES. Now, 16 years later, the filmmaker's sequel records the British artist (and Holly, his daughter and assistant) working in dense forests and lush jungles, urban settings, and idyllic grain-filled rocks, clay and bracken. His understated yet precise artistry is never less than mesmerizing - whether painting his hands with red or gold leaves, using heavy machinery to cleave massive boulders, or "swimming" through a daunting thicket. With music by the inimitable Fred Firth.

     With the new year comes a great line-up of new fare for Classics @ the Starlight, and Late Night @ the Starlight. On January 17th we present SUNSET BOULEVARD, starring the great Gloria Swanson and William Holden. On February 14th - Valentine's Day - we have the perfect movie planned, but as of yet unconfirmed. Think Cher ("Snap out of it!") and you'll be right. These tickets will disappear in a heartbeat. In March we'll be presenting two films for Classics @ the Starlight - hopefully MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS starring Judy Garland, and definitely the new 4K restoration of A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH, starring David Niven and Kim Hunter. "One of the most audacious films ever made - in its grandiose vision, and in the cozy English way it's expressed...The special effects show a universe that never existed until this movie was made, and the vision is breathtaking in its originality." - Roger Ebert. And on April 18 we've got HARVEY, starring James Stewart. 

     Our Late Night @ the Starlight line-up thus far includes Drew Barrymore and Kristin Wiig in WHIP IT on January 20th, and FERRIS BEULLER'S DAY OFF on February 10th.
