The Society’s 2018-2019 season has it all:  science fiction; drama; comedy; horror; gangster; dramedy; documentary; music; and a classic foreign film.

The season begins Sept. 9 with TCS’ gift to the community, Victor/Victoria.  Admission is free and open to everyone.  TCS is convinced that you’ll like what you see and come back for more. Here’s the season’s lineup:

Sept. 9:  Victor/Victoria. 1982. Directed by Blake Edwards, starring Julie Andrews, James Garner, Robert Preston and Alex Karras.  Comedy/Music. Rated PG.  134 minutes.  Internet Movie DataBase (imdb.com) users’ score:  7.6/10.

Oct. 7:  The Body Snatcher. 1945. Directed by Robert Wise.  Starring Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Russell Wade and Henry Daniell. Horror, as we brace for Halloween. Not Rated.  77 minutes.  Imdb score:  7.4. A ruthless medical school professor (Daniell) and his prize student (Wade) find themselves continually harassed by their murderous supplier of illegal cadavers (Karloff).

Not Rated. 88 minutes. imdb score: 8.3.  A heinous crime and its aftermath are recalled from differing points of view.

Feb. 10:  Abacus: Small Enough to Jail. 2017. Directed by Steve James. Documentary. Not Rated. 88 minutes. imdb score:  7.2. Metacritic score:  73/100. Abacus, a small family-owned bank serving New York’s Chinese-American community, becomes the only company criminally indicted in the wake of the United States' 2008 mortgage crisis. A textbook case of prosecutorial overreach. Academy Award and Directors Guild of America nominations for Best Documentary.

March 3:  Winter’s Bone. 2010. Directed by Debra Granik. This is the movie that put Jennifer Lawrence on the map. Drama. Rated R for some drug material, language and violent content. 100 minutes. imdb score: 7.2. Metacritic score: 90.

Four Academy Award nominations, one Golden Globe nomination.

April 7:  Sweet and Lowdown. 1999. Directed by Woody Allen.  Starring Sean Penn and Samantha Morton. Comedy/Drama/Music. Rated PG-13 for sexual content and some substance abuse. 95 minutes. imdb core: 7.3. Metacritic score: 70. A comedic biopic focused on the life of fictional jazz guitarist Emmett Ray. Ray was an irresponsible, free-spending, arrogant, obnoxious, alcohol-abusing, miserable human being, who was also arguably the best guitarist in the world. We follow Ray's life: bouts of getting drunk, his bizzare hobbies of shooting rats and watching passing trains, his dreams of fame and fortune, his strange obsession with the better-known guitarist Django Reinhardt, and of course, playing his beautiful music. Highlight: Django Reinhardt’s guitar music. Penn and Morton were both nominated for Academy Awards and Golden Globes.
