American Hustle - Special One Time Showing!
Tuesday, December 10th at 6:30pm
$15 General Admission
$10 Cinema Center Members
Join Cinema Center in partnership with The New York Film Critics Series for a special screening of American Hustle before it's in theaters! The film opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 13th and wide on December 18th. A live event with Peter Travers interviewing two time Oscar nominated director/writer David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter) will be recorded on Monday December 9th and shown on screen Tuesday December 10th.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving's unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.

Medora - One Time Showing
Saturday, December 14th at 7pm
Years ago, Medora was a booming rural community with prosperous farms, an automotive parts factory, a brick plant, and a thriving middle class. The factories have since closed, crippling Medora's economy and its pride. The population has slowly dwindled to around 500 people. As one resident put it, “This town's on the ropes.” Medora follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of the 2011 season, capturing the players’ stories both on and off the court. The Hornets were riding a brutal losing streak when we arrived, and the team’s struggle to compete bears eerie resonances with the town’s fight for survival. Medora is an in-depth, deeply personal look at small-town life, a thrilling, underdog basketball story, and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them.
Discussion afterwards with the directors and subjects of Medora.
Regular Pricing Applies.
100 min., Unrated.

Both Raymond and the smart-mouthed and uncannily talented pre-teen daughter of Collins, Katie (Paige Conner), want marriage and a new baby to be born, with this baby carrying forth the power that Katie is starting to show.
