MILES AHEAD
"In the midst of a dazzling and prolific career at the forefront of modern jazz innovation, Miles Davis (Don Cheadle) virtually disappears from public view for a period of five years in the late 1970s. Alone and holed up in his home, he is beset by chronic pain from a deteriorating hip, his musical voice stifled and numbed by drugs and pain medications, his mind haunted by unsettling ghosts from the past." Shot in Cincinnati & Dayton, this improvisation on the life of Miles Davis is a treat for music lovers!

Synopsis (Boy Toy Inc.)
It's hard to believe, but this fun and insightful documentary is now 25 years old! Take a Holiday with Madonna and her entourage and we celebrate the film's anniversary on the big screen...one of the great concert films of the past 30 years! "This documentary chronicles Madonna's controversial 1990 'Blonde Ambition' international tour, kicking off in Japan during its rainy season, then traveling to North America with significant stops in Los Angeles, Detroit, Toronto, and New York. The film is a behind-the-scenes look at Madonna's relationships with her dancers and crew, her then-boyfriend Warren Beatty, and her family and friends, achieving an intimate glimpse into the boundary-pushing singer's drive and individuality." Gene Siskel said it was "One of the best and most entertaining films of the year." Come dressed as Madonna or wear your favorite Madonna T-shirt for discounts at the Concession Stand! Tickets go on sale May 10!
