The Civic provides great programming Eight Days of the Week. See what we got for you.
The Girl on the Train (14A), is the story of Rachel Watson’s life post-divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in New York, and every day the train passes by her old house. The house she lived in with her husband, who still lives there, with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple who live a few houses down — Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking. The Emily Blunt vehicle based on Paula Hawkins best selling mystery novel, screens over the weekend/Tuesday run on the split with…
The Accountant (14A). Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Using a small-town CPA office as a cover, he makes his living as a freelance accountant for dangerous criminal organizations. With a Treasury agent (J.K. Simmons) hot on his heels, Christian takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a legitimate client. As Wolff gets closer to the truth about a discrepancy that involves millions of dollars, the body count starts to rise.
And from the community, The Knights of Columbus presents a screening of The Euthanasia Deception, which examines Belgium’s 15 year experiment with euthanasia. With expert analysis from both medical and legal professions, the film reveals the serious, long-term implications of assisted dying laws, and proves that all of us become vulnerable when end-of-life care is handed over to lawmakers.
And on screen for the next Civic Doc Wednesday film, Ron Howard`s 95% certified fresh film, The Beatles: Eight Days a Week (PG), visits the band`s early years, from their club dates in Liverpool, England, to their concert tours in Europe and the rest of the world. And with the biggest stereo system in town, Beatles fans will not want to miss this.
And on Thursday, we see the end of another exciting week at The Civic, with the Sundance Film Festival Dramatic Grand Jury winner, Birth of a Nation (14A). Intentionally sharing the name with the D.W. Griffith`s 1915 pioneering film, which was also unfortunately racists to the core, Birth of a Nation (2016) Set against the antebellum South, follows Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher, who orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.
Coming Next: Inferno, November`s Member Monday, Don’t Blink – Robert Frank (Doc Weds.) and a Thursday sneak peak screening of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.
