Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck
Sep 4 to Sep 7
Friday to Monday 8pm ONLY!
Dir. Brett Morgen - 2015 - 138m - No Matinees
KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK invites you to experience Kurt’s life, art, and mind through his own unique lens, bringing you as close to the generation-defining icon as it’s possible to get. This first-ever fully authorized documentary feature blends Cobain’s personal archive of art, music (both his most famous and some that’s never been heard), written word, and never-before-seen home movies with animation and revelatory interviews from his family and closest confidantes. Following Kurt from his earliest years in Aberdeen, Wash., through the height of his fame, it creates an intense and powerful cinematic insight into an artist who craved the spotlight even as he rejected the trappings of fame. Those of Kurt’s generation will learn things about him they never knew. Those who’ve discovered the man and his music more recently will understand what makes Kurt the lasting icon that he is. Just like the legendary frontman of Nirvana himself, KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK is authentic, visceral, and unflinching. It will get into your head and stay there long after the end credits roll.

Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine
Sep 4 to Sep 7
Friday to Monday 5:15pm ONLY!
Dir. Alex Gibney - 2015 - 127m - No Matinees
Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief) pulls no punches in his portrait of Apple founder Steve Jobs and his legacy. This probing and unflinching look at the life and aftermath of the bold, brilliant and at times ruthless iconoclast explores what accounted for the grief of so many when he died. Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine is evocative and nuanced in capturing the essence of the Apple legend and his values, which continue to shape the culture of Silicon Valley to this day.
“Engrossing” - Justin Chang, Variety
"Gibney is convincing on every front.” - John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
“Riveting and important” - Alex Needham, The Guardian
“Insightful” - Joe O’Connell, Austin Chronicle
“Like he did with Scientology in Going Clear, Gibney peels back the complex layers surrounding the man. A film worth seeing and talking about.” – Michael Rose, Huffington Post
