EDITH WHARTON
THE SENSE OF HARMONY– NR; 57 min; 2014
SATURDAY, JANUARY 20 AT 2 P.M.
From filmmaker Elizabeth Lennard comes a definitive look at one of the greatest visionaries of the Gilded Age -- a literary genius, cosmopolitan and activist, whose vivid portrayal of society still resonates today: Edith Wharton. A born storyteller whose career stretched over forty years, Edith Wharton (1862-1937) was the first woman to receive an honorary degree from Yale and to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Best known for writing such iconic novels as The Age of Innocence, The House of Mirth, and Ethan Frome. This is being shown as part of our Edith Wharton Film series on Wednesdays in January.

The BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK
THE TOURING YEARS - NR; 106 MIN; 2016
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17 AT 2 P.M.
Academy Award-winner Ron Howard’s authorized and highly anticipated documentary feature film about The Beatles’ unprecedented early career is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966), the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim. Ron Howard’s film explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, ‘The Beatles.’
