The schedule is as follows:
January 12 - Moonlight (2016, R) 111 minutes at Fenimore Auditorium. Moonlight is the tender, heartbreaking story of a young man's struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality.
January 19 - King Kong (1933, NR) 100 minutes at Fenimore Auditorium. A film crew discover a gigantic ape on a remote island, and bring the towering beast back to NYC, where it embarks on a terrifying rampage while attempting to protect the movie's beautiful starlet.
January 26 - Loving Vincent (2017, PG-13) 95 minutes at Fenimore Auditorium. Loving Vincent brings the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil painting, hand-painted by 125 professional oil painters who traveled across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. The film was first shot as a live action with actors, and then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils. The final effect is the interaction of the performance of the actors playing Vincent's famous portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these characters into the medium of paint.
February 2 - Wonder Woman (2017, PG-13) 141 minutes at 22 Main Street. An Amazon princess leaves her island home and journeys to the outside world, which is being consumed by a massive war. With the help of an American pilot, she works to put an end to the conflict.
February 9 - Brave (2012, PG) 93 minutes at 22 Main Street. Princess Merida uses her bravery and archery skills to battle a curse and restore peace to the Scottish Highlands after she makes a wish that puts her entire kingdom in jeopardy. (Before the film, enjoy an animated short, Taking the Plunge, made available by the Indie Street Film Festival.)
February 16 - Iron Jawed Angels (2004, NR) 127 minutes at 22 Main Street. Defiant young activists take the women's suffrage movement by storm, putting their lives at risk to help American women win the right to vote.
