All Is True

“All Is True” stars Kenneth Branagh (who also directed the film), Judi Dench and Ian McKellen. In 1613 William Shakespeare retired. He still had one last story to tell — his own. Kenneth Branagh’s “All Is True” is a portrait of William Shakespeare during the last three years of his life, as he leaves London and returns to his family in Stratford-upon-Avon. The film follows Shakespeare as he strives to bridge the distance between himself and his wife and two daughters, recover from the loss of his son, and come to terms with his legacy as an artist. Branagh and screenwriter Ben Elton start with the known facts about Shakespeare’s life during that time and attempt to fill in the gaps with what Shakespeare seemed to reveal about himself through his own writings. In 1613, after a devastating fire destroys the Globe Theatre during the first production of Shakespeare’s play “All is True” (“Life of Henry VIII”), a distraught Shakespeare (Kenneth Branagh) returns to Stratford.

It is the story of a man who was an aviator, astronaut, husband, father and reluctant hero. Neil Armstrong’s words are narrated by Harrison Ford and the film weaves together breath-taking NASA footage, re-mastered archive material, and never-before-seen home movies, to tell the incredible untold story of a determined family man who became a global icon. “Armstrong” also includes major interviews with his family.

Echo in the Canyon

“Echo in the Canyon” celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA’s Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. It was a moment (1965 to 1967) when bands came to LA to emulate The Beatles and Laurel Canyon emerged as a hotbed of creativity and collaboration for a new generation of musicians who would soon put an indelible stamp on the history of American popular music. Featuring Jakob Dylan, the film explores the Laurel Canyon scene via never-before-heard personal details behind the bands and their songs and how that music continues to inspire today. “Echo in the Canyon” contains candid conversations and performances with Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), Michelle Phillips (Mamas & the Papas), Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield), David Crosby (The Byrds), Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) their contemporaries Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Graham Nash

Framing John DeLorean

Money, power, politics, drugs, scandal, and fast cars. The incredible story of John DeLorean is the stuff of a Hollywood screenwriter's dreams. But who was the real John DeLorean? To some, he was a renegade visionary who revolutionized the automobile industry. To others, he was the ultimate con man. For the first time, “Framing John DeLorean” recounts the extraordinary life and legend of the controversial automaker, tracing his meteoric rise through the ranks of General Motors, his obsessive quest to build a sports car that would conquer the world, and his shocking fall from grace on charges of cocaine trafficking. Interweaving a treasure trove of archival footage with dramatic vignettes starring Alec Baldwin, “Framing John DeLorean” is a gripping look at a man who gambled everything in his pursuit of the American Dream.

From the filmmaking team behind the highly-acclaimed documentary “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week”, “Pavarotti” is a riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people. Academy Award winner Ron Howard puts audiences front row center for an exploration of The Voice ...The Man ...The Legend. Luciano Pavarotti gave his life to the music and a voice to the world. This cinematic event features history-making performances and intimate interviews, including never-before-seen footage and cutting-edge Dolby Atmos technology. There was the 1,000 watt smile, the sort of giant grin that could light up a room, or an auditorium, or the Metropolitan Opera House. There was the bulky physique, which made an already larger-than-life figure that much larger, yet somehow not intimidating; if anything, it helped turn him into the Teddy Bear of “Tosca”. And there was the voice! His parents called him Luciano. But most of us knew him simply as Pavarotti.

Scarborough: The Music of Simon & Garfunkel

Celebrate the spirit, songs of Simon & Garfunkel when the indie-folk duo Scarborough brings its live concert — “The Music of Simon & Garfunkel” — to Sedona. There will be one performance on Thursday, June 27 at 7 p.m. on the Goldenstein Stage at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre, presented by the Sedona International Film Festival. Scarborough is the music of Simon & Garfunkel, performed by Nashville songwriters and touring folk duo, Edward Williams & Ashley E. Norton. “Ed has the Art hair but plays the Paul guitar,” says Ashley. Neither of them really take on a role as either Simon or Garfunkel. The goal is the music, and getting as close to the original compositions as they can. They switch off roles as to who sings who, staying true to the original acoustic performances. With just one guitar and two voices in harmony, you’ll be transported back into a time when music was about poetry and harmony.

Small Island: National Theatre of London

Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel “Small Island” comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday. “Small Island” embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury. The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK. A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story. The timing is even more poignant as Andrea Levy sadly passed away this year, on Feb. 14, 2019. “One of the most important plays of the year. Superb production. Outstanding performances. Andrea Levy’s epic makes momentous theatre.”
