Description

THURS FEB 27 *Double Feature* UNCUT GEMS 7:00 In one of 2019's indisputably great performances, Adam Sandler becomes Howard Ratner, an ambitious jeweler plying his trade in New York's busy diamond district. We follow Howard through the highs and lows of two emotionally fraught days as he attempts, repeatedly and desperately, to parlay a recent find of a rare black opal into a seven-figure gambling win. (2019, 135 min, 35mm ‘Scope) + THE KING OF MARVIN GARDENS 9:25 Jack Nicholson and Bruce Dern play estranged siblings David and Jason, the former a depressive late-night-radio talk show host, the latter an extroverted con man; when Jason drags his younger brother to a dreary Atlantic City and into a real-estate scam, events spiral toward tragedy. The King of Marvin Gardens, also starring a brilliant Ellen Burstyn as Jason’s bitter aging beauty-queen squeeze, is one of the most devastating character studies of the seventies. (1972, 104 min, DCP)
