Rent: The Sing-Along

From La Boheme to Broadway to the big screen on The JCC roof, the story of a group of bohemian friends. This rock-opera brings us back to Alphabet City of the 1980s where a group of 20-somethings struggle with life, love, and AIDS, and sing about it.

Dir. Chris Columbus (USA, 2005, 135 min)

NewFest: Cupcakes

During their annual get-together to watch the kitschy Universong competition, one of a sextet of friends is nursing a broken heart. The other five spontaneously compose and perform a song to cheer her up, which leads to a viral video that transforms these six nonprofessionals into Universong competitors. As colorful and infectious as a pop song, the latest from Eytan Fox (Yossi) is a delirious sugar rush of a comedy.

NewFest: I Always Said Yes: The Many Lives of Wakefield Poole

NY Premiere!

Wakefield Poole was a respected Broadway choreographer and ballet star until he rocked the mainstream world by becoming a groundbreaking hardcore gay filmmaker during the tumultuous 1970s. At the time, anyone making what the government considered pornography was at risk of prosecution. Poole challenged the system with his iconic Boys in the Sand, becoming famous for the defiant artistry he instilled in dozens of sexually explicit works, whose impact forever changed adult film.

Moonrise Kingdom: Under the Stars

Two very young lovers run away from camp and stay-at-home doldrums in this star studded film. While a search party sets out to find them, a storm begins to threaten their sleepy New England town. Kitchy, stylized, and starring Bill Murray (amongst many other greats), this film is a new classic summer film.

Dir. Wes Anderson (USA, 2012, 94 min)

In case of rain, shows will take place in the Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Family Auditorium.

Special Preview: Dinosaur 13

When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute made the world’s greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime: the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex ever found. But during a ten-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes and competing paleontologists, they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.

Up on the Roof: Putzel

Walter Himmelstein, a young man known as Putzel, works for his family's fish store and, though he dreams of bigger things, can't face the world outside his Upper West Side community. In this heartwarming comedy, Walter's aspiration to take over his uncle's smoked fish emporium is disrupted by the arrival of Sally, who becomes romantically involved with his married, about-to-retire uncle. But with Sally's help, Walter confronts his fears and tries to prove he is more than a Putzel.
