Two Trains Runnin’

Seats 245

In June of 1964, hundreds of college students traveled to Mississippi to join the civil rights movement during Freedom Summer. That same summer, two groups of musicians and record collectors headed to Mississippi to find lost blues singers Son House and Skip James and coax them out of retirement. The groups were unaware of each other. And, finding the musicians was nearly impossible with the Ku Klux Klan roadblocks and church bombings. Luckily, they persevered.

TWO TRAINS RUNNIN’ is an electrifying look at how a quest to rescue blues performers and preserve their music crashed head on with the violent race riots in Mississippi during Freedom Summer. The film revisits an important moment when America’s cultural and political institutions were dramatically transformed. And, it tells the remarkable story of how avid blues fans were able to save the music of their heroes.

Maya Angelou And Still I Rise

Seats 245

MAYA ANGELOU: AND STILL I RISE is the first documentary about the iconic writer, poet, performer and activist who overcame racism and devastating abuse to become one of our culture’s greatest voices. Rare footage and photos unveil an intimate and often unknown view of her public and personal life with the power of her own words.

Life, Animated

Seats 266

Preceded by EVEN IN DEATH

From Academy Award® winning director Roger Ross Williams, LIFE, ANIMATED is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young man who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films.  This emotional coming-of-age story follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence. 

The subject of his father Ron Suskind’s New York Times bestseller, Owen was a thriving three year old whom suddenly and inexplicably went silent – and for years after remained unable to connect with other people or to convey his thoughts, feelings or desires.  Over time, through repeated viewings of Disney classics like THE LITTLE MERMAID and THE LION KING, Owen found useful tools to help him to understand complex social cues and to re-connect with the world around him.

LIFE, ANIMATED evocatively interweaves classic Disney sequences with vérité scenes from Owen’s life in order to explore how his identification and empathy for characters like Simba, Jafar, and Ariel gave him a means to understand his feelings and allowed him to interpret reality.  Beautiful, original animations offer rich insights into Owen’s fruitful dialogue with the Disney oeuvre as he imagines himself heroically facing adversity as a member in a tribe of sidekicks.

Owen’s story is a moving testament to the many ways in which stories can serve as a means of persevering through the dark times, leading us all toward the light.

An Act of Love

Seats 196

AN ACT OF LOVE is about the trial that rocked the United Methodist Church and the minister who risked it all for his son.

In 2013, Rev. Frank Schaefer was put on trial in the United Methodist Church for
officiating a same-sex wedding for his oldest son. The wedding had been performed years before. But, a disgruntled member of his parish filed a complaint just before the 6-year statue of limitations was up. Immediately, the Schaefer family was thrust into the front of a movement for LGBTQ equality in the nation’s second largest protestant denomination.

AN ACT OF LOVE allows the Schafer family to guide the journey, but includes interviews with people on all sides of the issue to provide a balanced, emotional look at this equality issue shaking up most organized religions.

Command and Control

Seats 266

COMMAND AND CONROL is a harrowing documentary about a nuclear disaster that was barely averted just one state over in Damascus, Arkansas. Based on Eric Schlosser’s critically acclaimed book, COMMAND AND CONTROL exposes how the combination of technological complexity and human fallibility has repeatedly brought the nation and world to the brink of nuclear disaster.

COMMAND AND CONTROL draws upon recently declassified documents and eyewitness interviews to tell a minute-by-minute account of the events that unfolded on September 18, 1980, at a Titan II missile complex near Damascus, AR. The film offers a window into the system vulnerabilities and human fallibilities that could lead to catastrophe. The result is a gripping and suspenseful thriller that imparts crucial context to an issue Americans know little about.

Unlocking the Cage

Seats 266

UNLOCKING THE CAGE follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans. After 30 years of struggling with ineffective animal welfare laws, Steve and his legal team, the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), are making history by filing the first lawsuits that seek to transform an animal from a “thing” with no rights to a “person” with legal protections.


Supported by affidavits from primatologists around the world, Steve maintains that, based on scientific evidence, cognitively complex animals such as chimpanzees, whales, dolphins and elephants have the capacity for limited personhood rights (such as bodily liberty) that would protect them from physical abuse. Using writs of habeas corpus (historically used to free humans from unlawful imprisonment), Wise argues on behalf of four captive chimpanzees in New York State.

UNLOCKING THE CAGE captures a monumental shift in our culture, as the public and judicial system show increasing receptiveness to Steve’s impassioned arguments. It is an intimate look at a lawsuit that could forever transform our legal system, and one man’s lifelong quest to protect “nonhuman” animals

Seats 266

Oklahoma City is a Big League City with the coolest team in the NBA, the OKC Thunder. Sports stories are second nature to us. But, our judges fell especially hard for this intense look at the rollercoaster life of NBA star Lloyd "Swee' Pea" Daniels.

Lloyd Daniels was the biggest high school baller in NYC in 1986. He landed a spot at UNLV under Coach Jerry Tarkanian, despite not being able to read. But, he was arrested for buying crack cocaine from an undercover cop before his career even started.

THE LEGEND OF SWEE’ PEA follows the twists and turns of fortune in the life of a basketball prodigy who played in the NBA for 7 seasons: his dramatic downfall, miraculous comeback, and, finally, the bittersweet confrontation with a life imperfectly lived.
