The Bookshop

Opens Friday, August 31 at the Michigan!
England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy). As Florence's obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?

A Boy. A Girl. A Dream

Opens Friday, September 14 at the Michigan!

Cass (Omari Hardwick), a handsome USC grad stalled in his career, is getting lost in the alcohol- and drug-infused world of LA club promotion. On the night of the 2016 presidential election, he meets Frida (Meagan Good), a beautiful, spirited midwestern visitor dealing with a difficult breakup. Their chemistry is undeniable. Nothing will ever be the same again. With a sense of quiet enchantment and magnitude in the mundane, director and Ann Arbor native Qasim Basir has created a visually sensuous, dreamlike film unspooling in real time, seemingly in one continuous take, that transports you to a singular moment in time-election night-when the texture of life seemed to indescribably yet drastically change.

World Premiere: Football’s Valhalla, The Bob Ufer Story

Plays Friday, October 5, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

For many Michigan Football fans, nothing can describe the force of nature that was Bob Ufer. Considered the original “Voice” of Michigan Football, Bob Ufer is a University of Michigan icon. Far from being an impartial reporter, Ufer released endless kilocycles of unbridled maize and blue favoritism. For nearly four decades, Bob Ufer was beloved by a wide range of listeners for his enthusiastic, articulate and engaging style. His high-octane broadcasts had an impact on many local kids, including one who became the head football coach at Michigan, Jim Harbaugh. Recordings of Ufer’s game broadcasts have delighted Michigan fans for decades and are routinely heard at tailgate gatherings today.

The Big House

Plays October 5 - 11 at the Michigan!

Join us for a special homecoming screening on Saturday, October 6 at 7:00 PM with filmmakers in attendance!

Ann Arbor, Michigan is the prototypical college town—a small city with a massive research university, a tradition of political radicalism and Michigan Stadium, the largest in the United States and the home of University of Michigan football. With a capacity of 107,601 the entire population of Ann Arbor fits in the stadium, which fans affectionately call “The Big House.” Michigan football goes back to 1879, and is known for its distinctive winged helmet and its fight song “The Victors.” But this direct-cinema documentary eschews gridiron grandeur to look closely at all the labor—from the cooks to the cops to the cleaners—that goes into hosting 100,000 people. Shot against the backdrop of the 2016 election and the rise of Donald Trump, it presents a microcosm of America by showing everything but the game.
