MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN 40TH ANNIVERSARY
Thurs at 7:30pm
Monty Python delivers the group's sharpest and smartest satire of both religion and Hollywood's epic films. Set in 33 AD Judea where the exasperated Romans try to impose order, it is a time of chaos and change with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe them. At its center is Bethlehem-born Brian Cohen, who, by a series of absurd circumstances, is caught up in a new religion and reluctantly mistaken for the promised messiah. The entire Monty Python ensemble shines in multiple roles as they question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate, and haggling to revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions, and crucifixion, forever changing our biblical view. Watch the trailer.

While Goebbels infamously declared Berlin "free of Jews" in 1943, 1700 managed to survive in the Nazi capital. This gripping docudrama traces the stories of four real-life survivors who learned to hide in plain sight. Moving between cinemas, cafés, and safe houses, they dodged Nazi officials and a dense network of spies and informants. Yet their prudence was at odds with their youthful recklessness, prompting them to join the resistance, forge passports, or pose as Aryan war widows. Masterfully weaving these story threads together, The Invisibles is a testament to the resourcefulness, willpower and sheer chance needed to survive against incredible odds. Watch the trailer.
