Your favorite independent cinema is bringing you more of the kind of movies you love.NOCTURNAL ANIMALSAmy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Armie Hammer headline the second feature from director Tom Ford about a woman who is forced to confront the demons of her past as she is drawn into the world of a thriller novel written by her ex-husband.In his second feature, Nocturnal Animals, Tom Ford has brilliantly assembled, a new unsettling work that signals a major step forward for the fashion designer/film director after his well-received debut, A Single Man. Stylish and gorgeous to look at, Nocturnal Animals is far more than an exercise in aesthetics as it turns its gaze on the complex inner life of a middle-aged woman whose world is about to be turned upside down.Susan (Amy Adams) is a successful Los Angeles art-gallery owner who wants for very little, yet she finds her paradise troubled by the frequent absences of her second husband (Armie Hammer), a handsome young doctor, due to his incessant travelling. Susan is rattled further when a manuscript arrives on her desk, written by her long-estranged first husband, Tony (Jake Gyllenhaal). As Susan delves into the book, she is forced to examine her own past. Oscillating effortlessly between Susan's reality and the story within a story, Ford slowly and meticulously turns the screws, delving into suspense while keeping a firm hand on the disturbing drama.Nocturnal Animals is both an effective thriller and a psychological study of a woman in crisis. Ably supported by his superb cast, Ford never puts a foot wrong as he deftly navigates these two sides; his crisp direction is totally suited to the material. The result is a sheer delight from beginning to end.SHOWTIMESFri, Dec 9th @ 7pm & 9:30pmSat, Dec 10th @ 2pm, 4:30pm, 7pm & 9:30pmSun, Dec 11th @ 2pm, 4:30pm, 7pm & 9:30pmMon, Dec 12th @ 7pm & 9:30pmTues, Dec 13th @ 7pm & 9:30pmWed, Dec 14th @ 7pm & 9:30pmThurs, Dec 15th @ 7pm & 9:30pm"A stunning film noir that resonateswith ghostly, poetic terror."- Rolling Stone"Outrageously gripping and absorbing thriller with that vodka-kick of pure malice."-The Guardian"A fantastic beast of a film, intoxicating and strange"-Entertainment WeeklyEVOLUTIONThe only residents of young Nicholas' sea-side town are women and boys.

Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkins's staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.
Delivering a restrained yet intoxicating story with genuine emotional power. Moonlight, a film set and made in Miami by native Miami filmmakers- writer/director Barry Jenkins, playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney and co-producer Andrew Hevia- is consistently surprising and brimming with formal invention, from camera movement to the richly evocative imagery. Grand in scope but intimate in execution, it's a film you will be unable to forget."Breathtaking" - The New York Times"Magical" - Los Angeles Times"Powerful" - Entertainment Weekly"Epic" - Rolling Stone"Masterpiece"-Wall Street Journal"Marvelous"- Time Magazine"Thrilling""Exquisite" - Miami Herald- The GuardianSHOWTIMESFri, Dec 9th @ 6:30pm & 8:40pmSat, Dec 10th @ 2:10pm, 4:20pm, 6:30pm & 8:40pmSun, Dec 11th @ 4:20pm, 6:30pm & 8:40pmMon, Dec 12th @ 6:30pm & 8:40pmTues, Dec 13th @ 6:30pm & 8:40pmWed, Dec 14th @ 9:30pmThurs, Dec 15th @ 6:30pm & 8:40pm"Moonlight is Miami's first bonafide movie masterpiece."-Rene Rodriguez, Miami HeraldClick on the poster for more informationSUPPORT O CINEMABECOME A MEMBER!As a nonprofit cinema, the proceedsfrom our membership program go right back intoincreasing the diversity of our film presentations andevents.
