Our Top Picks

Recommendation  #1
Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center

Every Sunday and Wednesday through April 5th, the Rafael Theater will be screening different parts of the 9-part series Deconstructing The Beatles. Acclaimed “Beatleologist” Scott Freiman guides you, step by step, on an educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles’ performances and recording sessions, through each story and each album.

On Sunday, February 5th and Wednesday, February 8th, they'll be showing Deconstructing the Beatles’ 1963: YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!  In 1963, The Beatles went from four unknown musicians to musical superstars. The singles and albums they released that year are some of the greatest pop songs ever written. And they were just getting started. Join Freiman as he deconstructs the music the Beatles wrote and recorded in 1963—from “Please Please Me” and “She Loves You” to “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” Running time: 76 minutes.

Recommendation #2
Lark Theater

Hopper: The Man Who Painted a Vision of America, the new documentary about the legendary artist, is showing at the Lark Theater this Sunday, February 5th.

Description: Hopper’s work is the most recognizable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?

This new film takes a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words – this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush. Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.


Tickets: $10 - $18
