The Reg Lenna Center For The Arts, with a newly installed digital projection and sound system, will offer movies throughout most of the summer.
The new series of films starts with two One Night Only showings of Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks (May 22 at 7 p.m.) and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel (June 4 at 8 p.m.). Saving Mr. Banks, starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney, tells the extraordinary, backstory of how the classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen. Emma Thompson costars as the reluctant creator of “Poppins”, P.L. Travers. In The Grand Budapest Hotel, quirky filmmaker, Wes Anderson, recounts the period adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. It also features Wes Anderson regulars, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson.
Other films in the summer series include The Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis (June 7 & 11 at 8 p.m., June 8 at 2 p.m.), romantic comedy drama, Le Week-end (June 14 & 18 at 8 p.m.), animated Japanese film The Wind Rises (June 28 & July 2 at 8 p.m.), horror movie Stage Fright (July 12 & 16 at 8 p.m., July 13 at 2 p.m.), Swedish comedy We Are The Best!
