O Cinema Now Playing: The Big Sick & Paris Can Wait.Jul 14, 2017
THE BIG SICKPakistan-born comedian Kumail and grad student Emily fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts an illness, Kumail navigates the crisis with her parents and has an emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, THE BIG SICK tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail, who connects with grad student Emily after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he's never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.Produced by Judd Apatow, and an official selection of Sundance and SXSW, The Big Sick has wowed audience and critics alike with its stellar performances, laugh out loud hilarity and its heartwarming story.

It's hilariously hyper-verbal, yet wonderfully heartfelt."-Wall Street Journal" An exhilarating, utterly endearing movie"-Washington PostPARIS CAN WAITCharting the midlife renewal of a woman's independence and sensuality, Eleanor Coppola's road movie takes us on an intoxicating tour de France lined with heavenly vistas, art and architecture, and visions of cuisine régionale to die for.In her early fifties, Anne (Diane Lane) has arrived at a turning point. Her daughter has left home to attend university, and her nest now feels doubly empty because her workaholic husband (Alec Baldwin), a successful film producer, is chronically absent. When he is called away on location, Anne is offered transport from Cannes to Paris with her husband's friend and business associate (Arnaud Viard), a seductive bon vivant who unabashedly sets sights on his comely passenger. The trip could be done in a matter of hours, but it stretches into a leisurely two-day journey brimming with diversions such as beautiful churches, fine food, delectable wine - and expert wooing. While the rakish connoisseur regards the many young women he might easily bed as mere soufflé, Anne, he declares, is crème brûlée. But will Anne ultimately surrender to his charms?As writer and director, and as matriarch to a fiendishly talented filmmaking dynasty, Eleanor Coppola has been in the business for over five decades now. Her first step away from documentary was a long time in coming, but Paris proves to be well worth the wait.SHOWTIMESFri, July 14th @ 6:30pm & 8:30pmSat, July 15th @ 2:30pm, 4:30pm, 6:30pm & 8:30pmSun, July 16th @ 2:30pm, 4:30pm, 6:30pm & 8:30pmMon, July 17th @ 6:30pm & 8:30pmTues, July 18th @ 6:30pm & 8:30pmWed, July 19th @ 6:30pm & 8:30pmThurs, July 20th @ 6:30pm & 8:30pm"A film worth savoring; a celebration of food, wine and stopping to smell the roses."- Los Angeles Times"If you're longing for a delicious romantic romp to take your mind off the world going to hell in hand basket, Paris Can Wait is it"- Rolling StoneSUPPORT O CINEMABECOME A MEMBER!As a nonprofit cinema, the proceedsfrom our membership program go right back intoincreasing the diversity of our film presentations andevents.
