On October 7, 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten and tied to a fence and left to die because he was gay. Fifteen years after one of the most notorious hate crimes in U.S. history, Michele Josue, a close friend of Matt’s, has revisited the case with never-before-seen photos and rare video footage. Matt’s all-too-brief life is remembered through the vivid testimonies of those who knew him best, offering a searing, poignant, and multilayered portrait. In the end, the notion of forgiveness—embodied in the moving and courageous final act of Shepard's parents—takes on truly heroic proportions. (Not rated, 89 min.)

Zach Braff (GARDEN STATE) co-wrote and directed this quirky indie portrait (partially funded by a Kickstarter campaign) of one Aidan Bloom (played by Braff), a struggling actor, father, and husband who, at 35, is still trying to find a purpose for his life. When Aidan's father (Mandy Patinkin) can no longer afford to pay for his children's private school, Aidan decides to home-school them himself, and in the process finds some of the answers he has long been looking for. With Kate Hudson. "The fruits of writer-director Zach Braff's Kickstarter are here for the general public, and they're at once vibrantly weird, beautiful and thoughtful." — Sean Fitz-Gerald, The Denver Post. (Rated R, 107 min.)

Two lost souls, a record producer with a drinking problem (Mark Ruffalo) and a young British singer-songwriter (Keira Knightley) who has just been dumped by her rock-star boyfriend (Adam Levine), team up to make beautiful music and rebuild their lives on the magical streets of New York City. With Catherine Keener, Hailee Steinfeld, Ceelo Green, James Corden, and Mos Def. Written and directed by John Carney (ONCE). "It's rare to find a movie that uses music to define love without sentimentalizing it. But BEGIN AGAIN, with songs by Glen Hansard and New Radicals frontman Gregg Alexander, is a wonderfully appealing exception." — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. (Rated R, 104 min.)

Tickets may be purchased online or at the door one half hour prior to first show of the day.
