From the late 1930s to the early 1960s, Billy Wilder dominated Hollywood’s Golden Age. With over fifty films and six Academy Awards to his credit, he is one of Hollywood’s all-time greatest directors, producers and screenwriters. His films range from stark melodrama, like DOUBLE INDEMNITY (1944), THE LOST WEEKEND (1945) and SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950), to antic farce, such as THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH (1955) and SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959), to satiric comedy, like A FOREIGN AFFAIR (1948) and THE APARTMENT (1960). Billy Wilder has had a powerful creative influence on both the experimental and traditional film industries in America. []

Art House Theater Day

September 24th, 2016

Come celebrate Art House Theater Day at the Moxie with our screening of the 1981 fantasy film from Terry Gilliam, Time Bandits.

Time Bandits Showtimes 9/24 - 4PM 9/24 - 7PM

The Art House Convergence, an international consortium of independent, community-based, mission-driven movie theaters, is pleased to announce thefirst Art House Theater Day, taking place on Saturday, September 24, 2016. Over 160 theaters willparticipate in this nationwide celebration of the cultural and community growth that art house theaters promote.

In an age where media has become more digital than tangible, more solitary than social, art house theaters remain physical spaces where film lovers can congregate and connect with each other around intrepid, creative filmmaking. Art houses nurture an ecosystem of adventurous audiences and independent productions, and function as economic drivers in their localities.

“Art House Theater Day is a chance to show film-lovers that their local theaters are part of a larger cultural movement. These cinemas are not passive, insular venues––they are passion-driven institutions that collaborate with distributors, filmmakers, and each other to deepen film appreciation and to increase the diversity and artistic integrity of what you see on the big screen,” said Art House Theater Day cofounder Gabriel Chicoine.
