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. [IFC Films]

 

****: 'Unshakable, witty and deeply felt, the film will be paying emotional dividends for a long, long time." -Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

 

****: "What an astonishing achievement; what a beautiful movie." -Xan Brooks, The Guardian

 

****: "Epic in scope yet unassuming throughout, Linklater's incredibly involving chronicle marks an unprecedented achievement in fictional storytelling." -Eric Kohn, Indiewire

Buy your tickets at the box office or on line here for THE TRIP TO ITALY.

 

     Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman’s vocal register, the artistic merits of “Jagged Little Pill,” and, of course, the virtue of sequels. [IFC FIlms]

 

****: "By the time the curtains draw to a bittersweet close, you’ll walk out feeling rejuvenated, satisfied, well replenished in humor and culture, and already planning your own trip to Italy."

-Nicola Grozdanovic. The Playlist

 

"Brydon and Coogan's discourse over breakfast, lunch and dinner is captured with a casualness that makes the eavesdropping delicious."

-Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times

 

"As funny as the first go-round, more beautiful to look at, and better conceived." -

John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

 

"What's not fictional in their Trip to Italy is the gorgeous Italian coastline director Michael Winterbottom has them romping through, or the food they barely notice (though it'll have you famished by film's end), or the yacht they commandeer, bellowing all the while."

-Bob Mondello, NPR

INTERNET TICKETING

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.
