Join host and indie film fan, Glen Haley, as he revisits the best of independent film from various decades. We kick off our inaugural series with the 2000’s. This decade brought us iconic work from Sophia Coppola (Priscilla, The Virgin Suicides), Alexander Payne (The Holdovers, Election), and Wes Anderson (Asteroid City, The Grand Budapest Hotel), introduced us to the feature film directorial debut of Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees, The Woman King), and reminded us of the quirky genius of Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep). Haley will lead a pre-film discussion sharing insights and personal reflections on each film. Arrive early for the preshow talk (complimentary movie snacks provided) and experience some of the best in independent film.

Doors open at 1:30 pm. Preshow Talk begins at 2:00 pm.

After 12 years of bucolic bliss, Mr. Fox (George Clooney) breaks a promise to his wife (Meryl Streep) and raids the farms of their human neighbors, Boggis, Bunce and Bean. Giving in to his animal instincts endangers not only his marriage but also the lives of his family and their animal friends. When the farmers force Mr. Fox and company deep underground, he has to resort to his natural craftiness to rise above the opposition.
