September 11, 2019

When a brutal blast of cold hits Cincinnati, the public library transforms from a safe haven for the homeless into a potential war zone. Those who have no place of retreat to evade the cold stage a sit-in in the library where they are tended by members of the library's staff. Soon the police arrive and a stand-off threatens to bring tragedy to the homeless individuals and those who care about their well-being. An eye-opening exploration of the basic values of humanity plays out as the cold rages outside.

September 26, 2019

On the icy edge of Soviet Russia, bold and reckless Nina Markova joins the infamous Night Witches - an all-female bomber regiment - wreaking havoc on Hitler's eastern front. But when she is downed behind enemy lines and thrown across the path of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, Nina must use all her wits to survive. British war correspondent Ian Graham has witnessed the horrors of war from Omaha Beach to the Nuremburg Trials. He abandons journalism after the war to become a Nazi hunter, yet one target eludes him: the Huntress. Fierce, disciplined Ian must join forces with reckless, cocksure Nina, the only witness to escape the Huntress alive. In post-war Boston, seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride is delighted when her long-widowed father brings home a fiancee. But Jordan grows increasingly disquieted by the soft-spoken German widow who seems to be hiding something. Delving into her new stepmother's past, Jordan slowly realizes that a Nazi killer may be hiding in plain sight.

Category: Movie NightWednesday Movie - Ma (99 min., R)

Close

October 2, 2019

In a small town in Ohio, new kid Maggie and her friends, teenagers preparing for a night of partying, approach a woman outside of a liquor store to ask her if she'll help them get alcohol. She hesitates at first, but then helps. She even offers them a place to party in her basement. The woman, Sue Ann, has lived in the town her whole life. She's not known by the townspeople for being social. Yet, the kids soon learn that she's incredibly cool and outgoing. She doesn't have many rules either: she asks that the teens call her Ma, never go upstairs or use foul language in her home. Lastly, she requires that at least one of them remain sober. What the teens don't realize is that Sue Ann sees them as an opportunity to have the popularity that she never enjoyed when she was their age... at any cost.

Close

October 3, 2019

On August 9, 2016, a young Cree man named Colten Boushie died from a gunshot to the back of his head after entering Gerald Stanley’s rural property with his friends. The jury’s subsequent acquittal of Stanley captured international attention, raising questions about racism embedded within Canada’s legal system and propelling Colten’s family to national and international stages in their pursuit of justice. Sensitively directed by Tasha Hubbard, nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up weaves a profound narrative encompassing the filmmaker’s own adoption, the stark history of colonialism on the Prairies, and a vision of a future where Indigenous children can live safely on their homelands.
