free movie screening: 47 meters down

On the rebound after a devastating break-up, Lisa (Mandy Moore) is ready for adventure while on vacation in Mexico. Even still, she needs a little extra persuasion when her daring sister Kate (Claire Holt) suggests they go shark diving with some locals. Once underwater in a protective cage, Lisa and Kate catch a once in a lifetime, face-to-face look at majestic Great Whites. But when their worst fears are realized and the cage breaks away from their boat, they find themselves plummeting to the bottom of the seabed, too deep to radio for help without making themselves vulnerable to the savage sharks, their oxygen supplies rapidly dwindling. 47 METERS DOWN is a terrifying tale of survival set in the domain of the ocean’s fiercest creatures.

nausicaa of the valley of the wind 

The Studio Ghibli film festival continues at the Angelika Pop-Up at Union Market. NAUSICAA, the debut film from Oscar winner Hayao Miyazaki tells the story of a young princess, both brave and innocent, who’s love for all living things and passionate determination to understand the processes of nature lead her into terrible danger, sacrifice, and eventual triumph. Set in a devastated future world decimated by atmospheric poisons and swarming with gigantic insects, there is no good or evil, but rather convicting viewpoints, weaknesses, and power struggles. In what many consider to be his masterwork, Miyazaki’s animation is awe-inspiring and the film is not to be missed.
