April 12 & 13
Sandra (Cotillard) has just been released from the hospital to find that she no longer has a job. According to management, the only way Sandra can hope to regain her position at the factory is to convince her co-workers to sacrifice their much-needed yearly bonuses. Now, over the course of one weekend, Sandra must confront each co-worker individually in order to win a majority of their votes before time runs out. With TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, the Dardennes have turned a relevant social inquiry into a powerful statement on community solidarity, once again delivering a film that is simple on the surface but alive with both compassion and wisdom.

WOMAN IN GOLD is the remarkable true story of one woman's journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann, starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt's famous painting 'The Lady in Gold'. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg, she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.

The Invincible Czars, Austin's critically acclaimed connoisseurs of silent film score, return to Mobile in April for two screenings of DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE.
Fusing math-rock, classical music, lounge grooves, country shuffles and circusy polka, the band has built a name for themselves with their reinterpretations of classical works by Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky, as well as their original scores for classic silent films.
DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE is, of course, based on the classic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, about a scientists whose experiments lead to his evil side gaining a life of its own. John Barrymore (Drew's father) plays Jekyll, a good man driven by science in exploration of his repressed savage side. Unfortunately, these experiments give way to a monster and Edward Hyde is born.
John Barrymore's performance is out-of-this-world - it's astonishing to see the transformation begin as Jekyll becomes Hyde without the use of any makeup, instead relying purely on the power of Barrymore's ability to contort his face.
Scored in 2011, the Invincible Czars' soundtrack for DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE incorporates voice loops to create a haunting, understated experience. Themes from Eric Satie's Gnossiennes 1, 3 and 5 are used, as well as a complete arrangement of Debussy's Footsteps in the Snow. The score features cues written by bass player Henry Q Vines, violinist Phil Davidson and voice/winds mistress Leila Henley. (Written by Robert Saucedo)
