Until then, lots of love from everyone at the Rio. xoxox


Starring Academy Award (R) winner Charlize Theron, Academy Award (R) winner Nicole Kidman, Academy Award (R) nominee John Lithgow and Academy Award (R) nominee Margot Robbie – and based on the real scandal – BOMBSHELL is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time; Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it.

The provocative real story of three whip-smart, ambitious, strong women who anchored one of America’s most powerful news networks — becoming headlines themselves when they risked everything to stand up to the man who made them famous.

BOMBSHELL is a scalding and powerful movie about what selling, in America, has become. The film is about selling sex, selling a candidate, selling yourself, selling the truth.” (Variety)

“The entertainingly potent Fox News docu-satire, BOMBSHELL, is jammed with incident – largely based on events at the network during the 2015 election cycle – but the film’s most unsettling nugget is one that’s presented in the first five minutes.” (LA Weekly)

“[A] timely satirical takedown that finds black humour and absurdist comedy in the subject of workplace sexual harassment while never losing sight of its devastating repercussions.” (Times UK)

Eyes Wide Shut (20th Anniversary Screening)

In 1999, Tom Cruise and then real-life wife Nicole Kidman starred as a married couple exploring the possibilities of infidelity in master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick‘s erotically-charged, mysterious, psychological drama EYES WIDE SHUT.

Moulin Rouge!

Moulin Rouge!

The third film from visionary Australian director Baz Luhrmann, MOULIN ROUGE!, is a hyper-stylized, dramatic and romp that turns the conventions of the musical genre onto its (glittering) head by mixing a period romance with anachronistic dialogue and songs, reminiscent of the approach he utilized (with great success) in ROMEO+JULIET. Ewan McGregor stars as Christian,… Continue Reading

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

Based on journalist Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer prize-winning book “Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief,” Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney’s (THE ARMSTRONG LIE) explosive new documentary on the inner-workings of Scientology is an unflinching look at the organization, deconstructing everything from the “cult” of charismatic leader L. Ron Hubbard to his organization’s dubious and… Continue Reading
