Vita & Virginia
Sep 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Vita & Virginia

Poet and novelist Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton) and literary icon Virginia Woolf (Elizabeth Debicki) run in different circles in 1920s London. When the two cross paths, the magnetic Vita decides the beguiling, stubborn, and gifted Virginia will be her next conquest, no matter the cost. Vita and Virginia forge an unconventional affair, set against the backdrop of their own strikingly contemporary marriages; an affair that inspires one of Virginia’s most iconic novels, Orlando.

Vita & Virginia offers a glimpse into the complex nature of relationships and marriages, questioning what it is to be female and feminine and details the fraught hypocrisies of living in the 1920s. Punctuating the film is Virginia’s well publicized mania, depicted through visual, imaginative metaphors, a reminder of her vulnerability that Vita is eager to dispel. Throughout the story, characters struggle with the unwritten rules of jealousy, revolution, power and the myriad forms that love takes.

Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins
Sep 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins

Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins who took on the “Good Old Boy” corruption wherever she found it.  Intimidatingly brilliant and quintessentially Texan, Ivins was politically blue in a scarlet red state and unabashedly brash in her famously lauded political assessments. A workaholic, she traded conventional relationships and intimacy for beer, a solid typewriter, and boots made for muckraking. She dedicated four decades of her signature, droll wit to tackling corruption, defending free speech, and making all the right frenemies. Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. She knew the Bill of Rights was in peril, and said that “polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country.” Molly’s words have proved prescient. Now it’s up to us to raise hell!
