La La Land

Here’s to the fools who dream. And here’s to the movie lovers who join us to watch Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone dance and sing their way through iconic LA locales, pursuing their dreams and dealing with a crazy little thing called true love. This six-time Oscar winner bursts with the heart, joy, and exhilarating exuberance of great classic Hollywood musicals from a bygone era of filmmaking. But this feel-good, like-they-don’t-make-'em-anymore movie from wunderkind Damien Chazelle is also a stunningly thoughtful work of modern artistry that pleases even the people who would walk 100 miles to avoid a musical. Heck, it even makes the thought of being stuck in a traffic jam feel like a sun-kissed rhapsody. During the two hours you’ll spend under the stars in the “City of Stars,” your head will be lifted up there, too. And who knows...someone in the Open Space crowd could be the one for you.

Moana Sing-Along

What can we say except “You’re Welcome” for bringing Disney’s latest animated triumph to the Open Space—and in sing-along form, no less! Join us for the beautifully resonant story of a curious, kind, and strong princess (no, excuse us, daughter of a chief) who isn’t in search of a prince, but rather her own path. With a swaggering demigod and doltish chicken in tow, she sets sail on an adventure to save her people. Rich in Polynesian myth and culture, and featuring the vocal talents of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and the music of Lin-Manuel Miranda (of “Hamilton” fame), "Moana" will expand your horizons and—in true Maui style—steal your heart.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s off to Open Space we go for the ultimate Walt Disney classic, a charming and tender take on the Grimm Brothers' fairytale about a princess, an evil queen, cute woodland creatures, a septet of diminutive miners, a poisoned apple, and a dashing prince. This groundbreaking masterpiece marked the first full-length animated film made in the US, and it was hand-drawn without any computer assistance, kids! You don’t need a magic mirror to see that one man’s vision and the painstaking work of 570 artists culminated in a peak moment of American imagination that helped establish animation as an art form and laid the foundation for a style that endures today (see Sunday’s “Moana”). Even the grumpiest among us will be dazzled by this film, which remains the fairest of them all. Featuring an introduction by Disney historian Leonard Maltin.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Star Wars is the epitome of movie magic. Episode VII sent the world into a collective state of fevered anticipation, uniting us across generations, borders, and walks of life. It took us back home to our dear friends and introduced us to new ones with whom we immediately fell in love. It made a general out of a princess, and made us forget all about Jar Jar Binks. It brought us the engineering marvel that is the adorable robot named BB-8. And it was, however impossible it seems, as thrilling, euphoric, beautiful, and brilliant as we all hoped it would be. Yes, we’re showing the seventh episode in George Lucas’ epic space saga, Star Wars, on Saturday night. Darn right we are. Just five months and counting till Episode VIII, and the Force is strong with the Open Space.

Stop Making Sense

Mesmerizing. Beautiful. Awe-inspiring. Impossibly moving. The best dang concert movie of all time. We could fill an encyclopedia with the things that make this classic from the Talking Heads the collective favorite movie of many music lovers, but when it comes down to it, it’s as simple as this: “Stop Making Sense” is joy incarnate—pure exhilaration in cinematic form. It’s a film so good that even if you don’t know the band or the music being played, you’ll still be compelled to dance and marvel at a man (the brilliant David Byrne) who seems to have been transported to a state of bliss. So that’s why This Must Be the Movie for a special Monday night public test screening (no concessions, no frills)— an Open Space first—as we don our big suits to pay tribute to the late director Jonathan Demme and Burn Down the House. Does anybody have any questions?

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Remember the rip-roaring aughts when America was obsessed with all things NASCAR? When yokels slathered in corporate logos captured our hearts and imaginations? No? Well, it really did happen, and praise Lord Baby Jesus, Will Ferrell was there to document it with this brilliant chicken-fried comedy about NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby (Ferrell) and his best friend (John C. Reilly) as they take on a despised Formula 1 racer (Sacha Baron Cohen). Can Ricky Bobby reclaim his manhood (by, you know, driving a car fast) and humiliate the Frenchman at the famed Talladega 500? While it may not have won the Academy Award for “Best Movie Ever Made” like “Highlander” did, this sports satire is a work of inspired absurdity so hilarious, you just might blow a gasket.

What About Bob?

We feel good. We feel great. We feel wonderful about your People’s Choice vote this year. Take a vacation from your problems and spend a hassle-free night with this hilarious black comedy cult classic. Bill Murray plays Bob, a well-meaning basket case with an egotistical new psychiatrist, Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss). On the eve of a month-long holiday, the doctor sends his patient home with his latest self-help book, thinking, "That’s that." But Bob is needier and cleverer than your average patient, and tracks down the good doctor and his family at their vacation home. As the control-freak doctor loses more and more of his cool with his clingy houseguest—and his family and friends grow more and more attached to Bob—Dr. Marvin begins to question his own sanity. And we'll question yours if you decide to miss Friday night at Open Space!
