THIS WEEK: TO SLEEP WITH ANGER + FRIED GREEN TOMATOES + THE DARK CRYSTAL!
TO SLEEP WITH ANGER [ 1990 ] -- JULY 27-30

Charles Burnett's beautiful, poetic masterpiece is novelistic in its narrative density and richness of characterization. Danny Glover stars as Harry Mention, an enigmatic drifter from the South, comes to visit an old acquaintance named Gideon (Paul Butler), who now lives in South-Central Los Angeles. Harry's charming, down-home manner hides a malicious penchant for stirring up trouble, and he exerts a strange and powerful effect on Gideon and his thoroughly assimilated black, middle-class family. TRAILER & MORE Screenings sponsored by the UGA Willson Center for Arts & Humanities and the UGA Institute for African American Studies.

Featuring a live video interview with filmmaker CHARLES BURNETT, hosted by author ED PAVLIC,
following the 7:30p screening on Thursday July 27th

 
FRIED GREEN TOMATOES [ 1991 ] -- JULY 27-30
Academy Award-winners Kathy Bates and Jessica Tandy star with Mary Stuart Masterson and Mary-Louise Parker in this inspiring drama adopted from Fannie Flagg's best-selling novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. When unhappy housewife Evelyn (Bates) befriends Ninny (Tandy) in a nursing home, she hears a remarkable tale of laughter, devotion and a special friendship that defies all obstacles. As Ninny recounts the exploits of her free-spirited sister-in-law (Masterson), owner of a small Alabama café in the 1920s, and the bond shared with her friend (Parker), Evelyn gains the confidence to change her own life for the better in this heart-warming film from acclaimed director Jon Avnet. TRAILER & MORE Screenings sponsored by West Broad Market Garden.
 
THE DARK CRYSTAL [ 1982 ] -- LATE SHOWS JULY 28-29
From the brilliant imagination of Jim Henson, this masterpiece of animation recounts the timeless tale of good vs. evil and has become a cult favorite for children and grown-ups alike! Travel back in time to the faraway planet of Thra, and cheer on the Mystics as they fight to overthrow the evil Skeksis and restore peace to their planet! When Jen, a member of the Gelfling tribe, sets out to find the crystal's missing shard, his dangerous journey brings him face to face with monsters at every turn. TRAILER & MORE Screenings sponsored by Georgia Bikes.
