Thursday, June 20      Ray          2004 / 152 min. / R

 

Raised in a poor, single-mother Florida family, Ray Charles (Jamie Foxx) became completely blind by age 7. His mother, Aretha, doggedly schooled him to be an  independent blind man. He started his music career in a small band that exploited him, but eventually emerged as his own man, a force in the music industry and beloved by millions. Jamie Foxx delivered an uncannily true performance, which included his flawless singing of Charles’s music in the Charles style. He won all major Best Actor awards that year.

 

 

Thursday, June 27     Pride          2014 / 119 min. / R

Historical comedy/drama. In 1984 England is torn by violence due to the miners’ strike against conservative rule.  Gay activist Mark Ashton realizes the police have stopped harassing gays and lesbians because they’re busy bashing miners’ heads. Ashton gamely arranges a bucket collection for miners at the Gay Pride Parade in London. His act grows into a movement that makes allies of enemies. With Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and a terrific ensemble cast. The film won awards, including the Queer Palm at the Cannes Film Festival.

 

Super Cinema, July 2024

America, America

Thursday, July 11 Red River 1948 / 127 min. / Approved


After a wagon train massacre, Texas rancher Tom Dunson (John Wayne) adopts teenager Matt (Montgomery Clift), the massacre’s sole survivor. Many years later, a desperate Dunson uses tyrannical methods to lead a drive of his ranch’s 10,000 cattle from Texas to Missouri. When his hired hands mutiny, Matt takes charge, setting up a deadly struggle between father and son. Reportedly, John Ford, who previously had directed several John Wayne westerns, saw this one and told Red River’s director, Howard Hawks, that he never knew John Wayne could act.

Two small-time grifters Henry and Hooker (Paul Newman and Robert Redford) design an elaborate gambling-based sting as payback for the murder of their friend Luther by gangster Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). Jaunty Scott Joplin piano solos accompany the thoroughly delightful charade.

 

Thursday, July 25 American Fiction 2023 / 117 min. / R


Professor and novelist Thelonius “Monk” Ellison (Jeffrey Wright) is fed up with stereotypes he thinks Black authors use to get published and promoted by publishers, while his serious work flops. He decides to write a satire of the successful Black novel of the day, using a pen name. Meanwhile his prosperous Black family and friends keep keeping on as his latest novel develops a prosperous life of its own.
