Paul Barnes’s Weekly Update on What’s Happening

This week at CCA (June 14-20), CCA is pleased to announce the first annual Public Domain Day on Monday, June 17. US Copyright Law protects creative property for almost a full century, but on January 1, 2024, many films from the year 1928 moved into the public domain.

All day long, CCA will be screening a curation of classics such as Beggars of Life, The Man who Laughs, proto-Poor Things sci-fi rarity Alraune, and a Short Films Program, including work by Man Ray, Hans Richter, Jean Renoir, and Mickey Mouse’s debut in Steamboat Willie! The full schedule can be found here and Day Passes are available for only $25! It’s a film lover’s dream! Reserve your tickets today!

OPENING: Tuesday is a story of a mother and daughter struggling with a fatal illness as Death comes in the form of a talking macaw straight out of magic realism. Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars in this daringly original film in a challenging dramatic role that she nails – a possible Oscar nomination is being talked about.

OPENING:  I Used to be Funny follows Sam, in a remarkable performance played by comedian Rachel Sennott (Shiva Baby), as a stand-up comedian afflicted with PTSD who struggles with whether or not to join the search for a missing teenage girl she used to nanny.

OPENING:  Lyd, a collaboration between Palestinian director Rami Younis and Jewish-American director, Sarah Ema Friedland, is a speculative, sci-fi documentary that follows the rise and fall of Lyd – a 5,000-year-old metropolis that was once a bustling Palestinian town until it was conquered when the State of Israel was established in 1948.

ENCORE SCREENINGS: Anna Sofaer’s latest film, Written on the Landscape, about the archeoastronomical discoveries her Solstice Project has made over four decades in Chaco Canyon will be HELD OVER for another week.
