Set against the vibrant landscape of South Florida, and featuring an astonishing ensemble of award-winning actors and breakouts alike, WAVES traces the epic emotional journey of a suburban African-American family--led by a well-intentioned but domineering father--as they navigate love, forgiveness and coming together in the aftermath of a loss. From acclaimed director Trey Edward Shults comes a heartrending story about the universal capacity for compassion and growth even in the darkest of times. A mesmerizing, emotionally engrossing and thoroughly immersive experience. WAVES is one of the most profound, poetic and haunting films of the year.

FANTASTIC FUNGI is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.

Using time-lapse macro cinematography that is gorgeous, mesmerizing and often startling in the natural beauty it reveals, FANTASTIC FUNGI quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs as it offers nothing less than a model for planetary survival

The Late Show at the Pageant Theater: Cult Classics from Arthouse to Grindhouse in New Restorations!

The film that first brought reggae to the international stage, made Jimmy Cliff a star and demonstrated how music can change the world, THE HARDER THEY COME is still electric with the feeling of discovery. This blend of crime drama and musical tracks Cliff’s country-boy-in-search-of-fame through early 1970’s Jamaica under the guises of laborer, recording artist, convict, ganja dealer, and outlaw folk hero. THE HARDER THEY COME hasn’t lost a drop of its cool, its edge, or its way of making you dance.
