The Burmese Harp

"Much like the soldier Mizushima dressed in the robes of a Buddhist monk, Kon Ichikawa's war film tries on borrowed spiritualist attire and finds that it is an unexpectedly perfect fit."
— Little White Lies

An Imperial Japanese Army regiment surrenders to British forces in Burma at the close of World War II and finds harmony through song. A private, thought to be dead, disguises himself as a Buddhist monk and stumbles upon spiritual enlightenment. Magnificently shot in hushed black and white, Kon Ichikawa’s The Burmese Harp is an eloquent meditation on beauty coexisting with death and remains one of Japanese cinema’s most overwhelming antiwar statements, both tender and brutal in its grappling with Japan’s wartime legacy.

Special Showing

One Night Only! Presented by Spice Root and Stephen Lawrence.

RRR is what theaters are for. This is pure big screen joy.

NY Times Critics Pick. "Scenes of glorious excess make the screen hum with energy. Set in 1920s India before independence, “RRR” pairs two of the country’s biggest stars, N.T. Rama Rao Jr. (known as “Jr. NTR”) and Ram Charan, as superfriends from either side of a bloody colonial divide."
— New York Times

One Night Only! Presented by Spice Root and Stephen Lawrence

Back on the big screen where it belongs for a one night only #encoRRRe, RRR is an exhilarating, action-packed spectacular mythologizing two real-life freedom fighters who helped lead India’s fight for independence from the British Raj, Komaram Bheem (N.T Rama Rao Jr., aka Jr NTR) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan).

Set in the 1920s before their fight for India’s independence began, RRR imagines a fictional meeting between the two, set into motion when a young Gond girl is stolen from her village by British soldiers. With a powerful message, staggeringly choreographed action sequences, and an all-timer of a musical number, RRR is sheer big-screen joy from start to finish, and audiences have one last chance to see it big and loud as intended.

There will be an intermission.
