Miranda July will attend screening of her 2011 feature film THE FUTURE
On Wednesday night at 7:30pm filmmaker, artist, actress, and writer Miranda July will answer audience questions after a screening of her latest feature film THE FUTURE (2011). July’s videos, performances, and web-based projects have been seen at such venues as the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum, and in two Whitney Biennials. Her award-winning fiction has appeared in The Paris Review, Harper’s, and The New Yorker, and her first feature film,Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005), won the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. THE FUTURE stars July and Hamish Linklater as a passive, thirtysomething L.A. couple, stuck in a funk of dispassion and disappointment, who decide to adopt an injured cat. During the anxious month before the animal’s arrival (when their lives will change forever), they each decide to quit their jobs and do some things they always wanted to do, but never got around to. Miranda July’s appearance is sponsored by NEOMFA (Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts Creative Writing). Those with valid Univ. of Akron, CSU, KSU, or Youngstown State Univ. I.D.'s will be admitted for only $7.
Japanese artist couple is the focus of unforgettable CUTIE AND THE BOXER
THE CUTIE AND THE BOXER is one of the most acclaimed movies of 2013—an intricate, intimate portrait of 80-year-old Brooklyn-based Japanese artist Ushio Shinohara, who punches canvases with paint-covered boxing gloves, and his illustrator wife Noriko, who has neglected her own artistic career for his. With surprising access to their private life, filmmaker Zachary Heinzerling captures the couple’s combative, tempestuous 40-year marriage—as well as their stubborn love for each other. The Wall Street Journal says it's "more than a great documentary. It's a great film." Catch its Cleveland theatrical premiere on Thursday or Sunday. Watch the trailer here and we think you'll be hooked.

Comic menage a trois sparks Lubitsch's suggestive DESIGN FOR LIVING
Fredric March, Gary Cooper, and Miriam Hopkins star in Ernst Lubitsch's 1933 comedy DESIGN FOR LIVING, based on a Noel Coward play (screenplay by Ben Hecht). It tells of two American roommates in Paris, a painter and a playwright, who love the same woman. To help choose between them, she proposes that she move in with them—but no hanky panky! See DESIGN FOR LIVING in a 35mm print from the Universal Pictures studio archive on Saturday or Sunday.
Jem Cohen's moving MUSEUM HOURS is a must-see drama about art and life
In Jem Cohen's singular MUSEUM HOURS, a male security guard at Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum (Bobby Sommer) befriends a lonely and eccentric Canadian woman (Mary Margaret O’Hara, Catherine’s sister) who has come to Austria to visit a hospitalized distant relative. This quiet, delicate movie—one of the best and most original films in recent memory—is a muted, moving meditation on art and life, love and loss, looking and seeing, death and the passage of time. Critic Jonathan Curiel has called MUSEUM HOURS “the best drama ever made about museums and the connection between visual art and everyday life.” It also has a 93% “fresh” rating on RottenTomatoes. Don't miss it on Saturday or Sunday. Here's the trailer.
John Huston's WE WERE STRANGERS: did it incite Lee Harvery Oswald to murder?
Lee Harvey Oswald reputedly watched the little-known 1949 John Huston film WE WERE STRANGERS two separate times on TV in the weeks before he shot JFK on 11/22/63. It "greatly excited" him, according to one historian. Set in 1933, the movie tells of a group of Cuban revolutionaries who plot to overthrow their country's corrupt dictator. Jennifer Jones, John Garfield, and Pedro Armendáriz star. See this rarity in 35mm on Thursday or Friday. Print this email and present it at the box office and see WE WERE STRANGERS for only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out)
