Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President

Fri-Thurs Sept 25-Oct 1
$9.99. for a 3-day rental
1 hr 40 min (not rated)
This documentary is an incisive and often-rollicking look at an era that saw youth culture and politics join forces, and at a man of conscience whose love of music was crucial to who he was as a father, a citizen, a man of the South, and a leader during his presidency and beyond .

It charts the mostly forgotten story of how Carter, a lover of all types of music, forged a tight bond with musicians Willie Nelson, the Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan and others. Low on campaign funds and lacking in name recognition, Carter relied on support from these artists to give him a crucial boost in the Democratic primaries.

It's fillled with illuminating new interviews with, to name a few, Bob Dylan,Willie Nelson, Gregg Allman, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood

Epicentro is an immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, "utopian" Cuba, where the 1898 explosion of the U.S.S. Maine still resonates. This Big Bang ended Spanish colonial dominance in the Americas and ushered in the era of the American Empire. At the same time and place, a powerful tool of conquest was born: cinema as propaganda. In his latest film, Academy Award® nominee Hubert Sauper explores a century of interventionism and myth-making together with the extraordinary people of Havana—who he calls "young prophets"—to interrogate time, imperialism and cinema itself.

" As evocative as it is thought-provoking, Epicentro takes an affectionate look at a people and culture -- and delivers a quietly effective rejoinder to lingering Cold War resentment."- Critics Consensus

A Chef's Voyage

thru Thurs Oct 1
$10. for a 3-day rental
90 min  (not rated)


This documentary follows the celebrated American Chef David Kinch and his team from Manresa, their 3-Star Michelin restaurant in California, for a one-of-a-kind collaboration with three legendary French chefs at their iconic restaurants in Paris, Provence, and Marseille. 

To mark the 15th anniversary of Manresa, Kinch decides to close shop for a month so he and his staff can embark on their France voyage. Planning the trip takes months; to represent the refined Californian cuisine of Manresa, the team must bring their own seasonings, sauces that take days to make, and lots of abalone. But the logistics are tricky: how to sneak the food on flights; unfamiliar host kitchens; a language barrier and more.

"A Chef's Voyage" takes us behind the scenes as  crew attempts to stage nine major meals over 10 days in the world’s most cinematic venues and alongside culinary superstars.

The vinyl record renaissance over the past decade has brought new fans to a classic format and transformed our idea of a record collector: younger, both male and female, multicultural. This same revival has made buying music more expensive, benefited established bands over independent artists and muddled the question of whether vinyl actually sounds better than other formats. Vinyl Nation digs into the crates of the record resurgence.

       Greetings Everyone !    We hope you are well!

The big question we are asked is "When will you re-open?"       The short answer is "We Don't Know".

Having said that, we are busy preparing for the day when the marquee will host a movie title again. We are taking a number of measures to ensure your safety when you do return and as that day gets closer we will share what these are and what we will be doing. The bottom line is, yes there will be changes (however temporary), but one thing  remains the same: the magic of the movies. Thank you for all the support and words of encouragement during this time. It's not something we take for granted. In the meantime we are offering virtual cinema and are open for walk-up concessions on Friday & Saturday, 6:30-8pm, with a limited menu. So if you watch on the weekend, stop by the theatre,  pick-up your concessions and make it a Crystal Theatre movie night!
We hope this gets you excited about coming back to the movies !  We look forward to seeing you, Kathy & Bob
