The Birdcage
Take a trip to the fabulous 1990s South Beach drag scene in this hysterical romp from the great Mike Nichols. A Miami nightclub owner (Robin Williams) and his cross-dressing partner (Nathan Lane) are forced to play it straight when their son’s uber-religious and ultra-conservative in-laws-to-be (Gene Hackman and Dianne Wiest) come calling. Nearly 20 years after its release, this heartfelt and offbeat delight remains a landmark work for bringing gay culture to mainstream audiences. As much an irresistibly witty piece of political satire as a tender story of family, the true beauty of “The Birdcage” is not its marvelous ensemble cast or its unforgettable characters, but its underlying belief in being proud of who you are. We pay tribute to the memories of Robin Williams and Mike Nichols with this screening.

The Breakfast Club
This enduring ode to teendom from the sweet bard of youth, John Hughes, might be celebrating its 30th year, but it remains as inextricably tied to the fabric of pop culture as ever. It’s the story of five teenagers (Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, and Anthony Michael Hall) who learn they may not be as different as they seem over the course of one fateful Saturday in the now-fabled halls of Shermer High School, and it’s both of its time, and timeless. With spontaneous dance parties, soul-baring breakthroughs, and the most epic fist pump ever put on celluloid, detention never seemed more awesome. So whether you’re a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, or a criminal, don’t you forget about coming to the Open Space to see your 2015 People’s Choice Winner.

Gravity
It’s a film of such jaw-dropping virtuosity, such sublime cinematic pleasure, such thrilling technical genius—we simply had to make “Gravity” this year’s opener at our outdoor cinema under the stars. Two astronauts—one a veteran (George Clooney) on his last mission, one a newbie (Sandra Bullock) on her first—confront unimaginable challenges after disaster strikes during a routine spacewalk. Facing deafening silence, indescribable solitude, and total desolation over 400 miles away from Earth, the tension builds to near heart-stopping levels as the human will to survive takes flight. Both a massively entertaining space adventure and a visionary work of transformative art, Alfonso Cuarón’s out-of-this-world masterpiece is the kind of dazzling artistry that only comes along once in a blue moon.

TCFF15 Features\the_great_dictator_1_thumb.jpg
The Great Dictator
Long before “The Interview” courted controversy for lampooning a living despot, Hollywood’s biggest star made its first great political satire by fearlessly going after Hitler and fascism, years before the US even entered WWII. In Charlie Chaplin’s first true talkie, he sends a message loud and clear, playing the dual roles of a brutal and loony tyrant and a genial Jewish barber who are mistaken for one another. This savagely funny magnum opus seamlessly balances touching romance, real tragedy, and slapstick comedy, climaxing in one of cinema’s most indelible moments: Chaplin’s famous speech in which the artifice of the movies stops for a moment and humanity breaks through with an impassioned plea for tolerance. We are honored to have Geraldine Chaplin on hand to present her father’s bravest and most stirring work on the occasion of its 75th anniversary.

Guardians of the Galaxy
Because this is not just another man-saves-galaxy- from-unspeakable-evil story. Because in this free-wheeling space opera, it’s all about the oddballs and outcasts. Because it’s set to a 70s AM beat with goofy spirit and sweet retro charm that is all too easy to love. Because it’s as fantastic as it is fun and as hilarious as it is heartfelt. Because blockbuster wunderkind Chris Pratt is already having the best summer ever. Because even Iron Man called it the best Marvel movie to date. Because there’s a talking raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper. Because, ooh child, things are gonna get easier. And because WE ARE GROOT—“Guardians of the Galaxy” could very well be the most downright giddy and just plain awesome movie making its debut at the Open Space this year.

The Lego Movie
A movie about tiny plastic playthings? Does this mark the end of film as we know it? Luckily for us, “The LEGO Movie” is not your average toy tie-in movie, but an utterly imaginative and unexpected cinematic joy. With dazzling animation, gut-busting irreverence and wit, and the incredible vocal talents of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, and Will Ferrell, this wickedly smart and hilarious story of an ordinary LEGO minifigure on an extraordinary quest is as much for the adults as for the kids. So leave your DUPLOs at home and bring your double-decker couch buddies to our Closing Night Bash, because everything truly is awesome in this subversive spectacle with the perfect message for kids: you are wonderful and special, and you will survive the adults.
