“Alice Through the Looking Glass” concludes its run Thursday night, June 9, followed by Susan Sarandon in “The Meddler” and Oscar-winning director Charles Ferguson’s new film about global warming, “Time to Choose” this week at The Harbor Theatre.
“Alice Through the Looking Glass,” based on Lewis Carroll’s classic stories, is Walt Disney Studios’ all-new spectacular adventure. After slipping through a mirror, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) finds herself back in Underland with the White Queen (Anne Hathaway), the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, and Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Her friends tell her that the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) is depressed over the death of his family. Hoping to save his loved ones, Alice steals the Chronosphere from Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) to travel into the past. While there, she encounters the younger Hatter and the evil Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter).
“Alice Through the Looking Glass”, PG, plays at 7 p.m., Thursday, June 9.
“The Meddler” is a comedy/drama starring Susan Sarandon as Marnie who, with a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter Lori, a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits, and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others — as well as her own — and find a new purpose in life. With Rose Byrne and J. K. Simmons. Rated PG13.
“The Meddler” plays at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, June 10 and 11, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., Sunday, June 12, and at 7 p.m., Monday and Tuesday, June 13 and 14, and Thursday, June 16.
On Wednesday, June 15 the theatre presents “Time to Choose,” Oscar-winning documentary director Charles Ferguson’s look at global climate change. This film shows the breadth of the climate challenge, the power of solutions already available, and the remarkable people working to save our planet — from American farmers and African villagers to Indonesian anti-corruption officials and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.
“Time to Choose” (not rated), plays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., Wednesday, June 15.
