As we move toward the fall months, our movie schedule broadens to include other live, or captured-live, performances from around the world. September marks the return of theater performances from London’s West End – including two Shakespeare classics, an American theater classic, and a classic musical, all of which can be seen at Lincoln Theater. And don’t miss “Captain Fantastic,” a family saga that is being talked about as one of the best films of the year.
‘Jason Bourne’ (PG-13; 2 hours, 3 minutes)
It’s been 10 years since Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) walked away from the agency that trained him to become a deadly weapon. Hoping to draw him out of the shadows, CIA director Robert Dewey assigns hacker and counterinsurgency expert Heather Lee to find him. Lee suspects that former operative Nicky Parsons is also looking for him. As Lee begins tracking the duo, Bourne finds himself back in action battling a sinister network that utilizes terror and technology to maintain unchecked power. The CIA’s most dangerous former operative is thus drawn out of hiding to uncover more explosive truths about his past. Final screenings at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 8.
‘Captain Fantastic’ (R; 1 hour, 58 minutes)

But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he’s taught them.
