On Wednesday, April 17 (around 8 PM or when it is dark enough) the featured film will be The Fall, a 2006 adventure fantasy film directed by Tarsem Singh. The film begins in a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, where an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient—a little girl with a broken arm—a fantastic story of five mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality blurs as the tale advances.

The Fall premiered at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival, receiving generally mixed to positive reviews from critics. The late Roger Ebert gave the film 4/4: "You might want to see for no other reason than because it exists. There will never be another like it."

On Wednesday, April 24, same time, the featured film will be “The Triplets of Belleville,” a 2003 silent animated film from France, directed by Sylvain Chomet. The film was highly praised by audiences and critics for its unique style of animation, and received two Academy Awards—Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. When her grandson is kidnapped during the Tour de France, Madame Souza and her beloved pooch Bruno team up with the Belleville Sisters—an aged song-and-dance team from the days of Fred Astaire—to rescue him.
