Buy your tickets at the box office or on line here for BOYHOOD.
Epic in technical scale but breathlessly intimate in narrative scope, Boyhood is a sprawling investigation of the human condition.
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before and is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.

Buy your tickets at the box office or on line here for A HARD DAY'S NIGHT.
A Hard Day's Night, despite its age, is still a delight to watch and has proven itself to be a
rock-and-roll movie classic.
Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with theirEd Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen.A Hard Day’s Night,in which the bandmates play wily, exuberant versions of themselves,captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell,”A Hard Day’s Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.
****: "In A Hard Day's Night, the Beatles, in song after song, pay homage to the faith of love, and that faith connects them to something ancient, lending this topspin musical its near oracular beauty."
-Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
****: "One of the great life-affirming landmarks of the movies." -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"From the opening chords of the title song played over the group bemusedly fleeing from their fans, A Hard Day's Night creates pure, infectious joy." -Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"An extraordinary feat of digital salvage that brings us as close to that long-vanished era as we're likely to come any time soon." -Kurt Loder, Reason Online

AT THE DOWNING FILM CENTER
We are pleased to announce that the Downing Film Center has converted to an online ticketing system that links up with our existing ticketing service provided by RTS (Ready Theatre Systems). As a result, we no longer handle reservations by phone or email. You can now purchase your ticket directly through the Downing Film Center’s website – www.downingfilmcenter.com – at the top of this page or under the film you would like to attend. The good news is it’s easy! To complete your order, you must use a credit card – Visa, Master Card or Discover (American Express will not be accepted). Upon purchase, you will be given a receipt to print. When you arrive at the theater, please be prepared to finalize your ticket purchase with this receipt or by presenting the credit card you used in your purchase. Please note: you will not be able to cancel your ticket(s) or obtain a refund once your online order is complete. For those without a computer or credit card, or who prefer to transact business in person, you will also be able to reserve tickets by purchasing them up to seven days in advance at our box office during regular operations (cash, check, credit card accepted). RTS also offers gift cards that can be used to reserve/purchase tickets in person or online. Current Downing Film Center gift certificate holders should come to the box office during regular hours to convert to an RTS gift card, which you will need to reserve/purchase tickets using our online option.
