THURSDAY, JULY 28 | City of Gold

In this richly penetrating documentary odyssey, Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold shows us a Los Angeles where ethnic cooking is a kaleidoscopic portal to the mysteries of an unwieldy city and the soul of America. Combing through colorful neighborhoods in his green pickup truck, Gold is sniffing out his next strip-mall discovery—whether Oaxacan grasshopper soup, hand-cut tonkotsu ramen, or a particularly unctuous pad see ew. As piping-hot platters are served up, so are stories of immigrants whose secret family recipes are like sacred offerings pledged for the opportunity to build their American Dream. With eternal curiosity, razor-sharp intellect, and existential longing, Gold is a culinary geographer taking us where no critic has gone before. Film running time is 95 minutes. This film is rated R for some profanity.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Film at 7:00 p.m. $10 tickets sold at the door, in advance at the Center for the Arts, or online below.

SATURDAY, JULY 30| The Hundred-Foot Journey

Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is an extraordinarily talented and largely self-taught culinary novice. When he and his family are displaced from their native India and settle in a quaint French village, they decide to open an Indian eatery. However, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the proprietress of an acclaimed restaurant just 100 feet away, strongly objects. War erupts between the two establishments, until Mallory recognizes Kadam's impressive epicurean gifts and takes him under her wing. Drama/comedic elements. Film running time is 2 hours. Rated PG.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 18 | Where to Invade Next

Filmmaker Michael Moore is back with a provocative and subversive film in which he'll stop at nothing to figure out how to make America great again. Confronting the most pressing social issues facing us today, he finds solutions in the most unlikely places: Europe. And instead of pointing out our flaws, he imagines our possibilities. An epic movie—an eye-opening call to arms to capture the American Dream and restore it in, of all places, America.

"One of the most genuinely, and valuably, patriotic films any American has ever made...Optimistic and affirmative, it rests on one challenging but invaluable idea: We can do better." — Godfrey Cheshire, rogerebert.com
