56 Up
The latest chapter in the most ambitious project in the history of documentary filmmaking revisits the subjects of a 1964 television program. Now 56, their lives have only grown further apart — some are grandparents, some newlyweds, some nearly homeless.

Robert Altman
Brewster McCloud
USA | 1970 | 101 min | 35mm
narrative
Hidden inside the Houston Astrodome, the shy, owlish Brewster McCloud (Bud Cort) doggedly works on creating the wings that he hopes will let him fly above and away from crass humanity. Robert Altman’s follow-up to M*A*S*H is a contemporary-set satire that takes direct shots at Nixonian America.

Room 237
USA | 2012 | 102 min | DCP
documentary
Room 237 is an endlessly fascinating exploration of the “hidden meanings” embedded into Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror opus, The Shining, told through the voiceover analyses and opinions of a number of individuals whose theories on Kubrick and his movie range from being well-reasoned and scholarly to the ridiculous.
