This week — cooking, music, dance and auditions! Now that’s entertainment.
‘Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain’
(R; 1 hour, 59 minutes)
Chef, writer, adventurer, and provocateur Anthony Bourdain lived his life unabashedly. “Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain” is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at how an anonymous chef became a world-renowned cultural icon. From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (“20 Feet from Stardom,” “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”), this unflinchingly honest look at Bourdain reverberates with his presence, in his own voice and in the way he indelibly impacted the world around him.
Plays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 25, and Thursday, Aug. 26.
Presented in partnership with Broad Arrow Farm.
(PG-13; 1 hour, 22 minutes)
Alvin Ailey was a trailblazing pioneer who found salvation through dance. Ailey traces the full contours of this brilliant and enigmatic man whose search for the truth in movement resulted in enduring choreography that centers on the Black American experience with grace, strength, and unparalleled beauty. Told through Ailey’s own words and featuring evocative archival footage and interviews with those who intimately knew him, director Jamila Wignot weaves together a resonant biography of an elusive visionary.
Plays at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 1, and Thursday, Sept. 2 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Presented in partnership with Strong Hancock Funeral Home.
