LEAN ON PETE

From acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Haigh (Weekend; 45 Years), and based on the beloved novel by Willy Vlautin, comes LEAN ON PETE —a deeply moving story about love, loneliness, family, and friendship, told through the unique prism of one boy’s connection to a very special racehorse.

Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson (Charlie Plummer) arrives in Portland, Oregon with his single father Ray (Travis Fimmel), both of them eager for a fresh start after a series of hard knocks. While Ray descends into personal turmoil, Charley finds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack where he lands a job caring for an aging Quarter Horse named Lean On Pete. The horse’s gruff owner Del Montgomery (Steve Buscemi) and his seasoned jockey Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny) help Charley fill the void of his father’s absence—until he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, prompting him to take extreme measures to spare his new friend’s life. Charley and Pete head out into the great unknown, embarking on an odyssey across the new American frontier in search of a loving aunt Charley hasn’t seen in years. They experience adventure and heartbreak in equal measure, but never lose their irrepressible hope and resiliency as they pursue their dream of finding a place they can call home.

Featuring an incredible breakout turn by Charlie Plummer and memorable supporting work by indie stalwarts Buscemi, Sevigny and Steve Zahn, LEAN ON PETE is a compassionate and heartrending look at the desire for love, family, and acceptance that drives all of us.

GHOST STORIES

A debunker of all things paranormal, Professor Phillip Goodman (Andy Nyman) has devoted his life to exposing phony psychics and fraudulent supernatural shenanigans on his own television show. His skepticism is put to the test, however, when he receives a file of three chilling, inexplicable cases: a night watchman (Paul Whitehouse) haunted by disturbing visions as he patrols an abandoned asylum; an edgy young man (Alex Lawther) involved in a hellish car accident deep in the woods; and a wealthy former banker (Martin Freeman) visited by the poltergeist spirit of his unborn child. Even scarier: each of the these macabre stories seems to have a sinister connection to Professor Goodman’s own life. Will they make a believer of him yet?

Starring Sherlocks Martin Freeman and Black Mirror's Alex Lawther, Ghost Stories is an affectionate throwback to classic British anthology chillers and it’s bloody terrifying too. Hang onto your popcorn – being scared has never been this much fun.

OH LUCY!

Executive Producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay present OH LUCY!, the story of a Tokyo office worker who has her desires awakened in the quirkiest way in this comedic odyssey of desire, passion, and betrayal. 

OH LUCY! follows Setsuko, a single, emotionally unfulfilled woman, seemingly stuck with a drab, meaningless life in Tokyo. At least until she’s convinced by her niece, Mika, to enroll in an unorthodox English class that requires her to wear a blonde wig and take on an American alter ego named “Lucy.” The new identity awakens something dormant in Setsuko, and she quickly develops romantic feelings for her American instructor, John. When John suddenly disappears from class, Setsuko travels halfway around the world in search of him, and in the outskirts of Southern California, family ties and past lives are tested as she struggles to preserve the dream and promise of “Lucy.”

BiZz-R-O Cinema, South Florida's original late-night cult film series, returns for a monthly edition at O Cinema Wynwood starting tonight!

The one that started it all, from the first name in Italian horror. Mario Bava’s seminal giallo touchstone, about a murder spree in a high-end fashion house, was profoundly influential on legendary filmmakers like Argento, Craven, Tarantino and Scorsese. Between its excessive use of color, hothouse tone and pioneering proto-slasher set pieces, BLOOD AND BLACK LACE is an ultimate embodiment of the genre.

Tickets are only $8 general admission and $5 for O Cinema members.
In honor of its exclusive theatrical engagement at O Cinema Wynwood, we’ll be hosting a wild opening night party for GRACE JONES: BLOODLIGHT AND BAMI , co-Presented with Third Horizon & Flaming Classics. Featuring Drag Queen performances by Dang-Ho Yu Sickning and music provided by DJ Cronos in the courtyard! Befitting the godess, there will be a Grace Jones altar festooned with kitsch, candles and offerings, and you’re encouraged to bring our own! 
Art Films presents the best films by and about artists paired with food & drinks, and a post-film discussion. Our May edition brings MY ART, the recent feature film by visual artists Laurie Simmons.

While many folks know Laurie as mother of Girls creator Lena Dunham, she is an accomplished artist in her own right. In My Art, Simmons explores the journey of an artist seeking recognition for her work. Brunch will be served next door at Charcoal and Laurie Simmons will participate in a post-film discussion with ArtCenter CEO Dennis Scholl.
