80 For Brady
Sport comedy ’80 for Brady’ follows four long-time friends played by icons in their own right: Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, and Sally Field. The women, who identify themselves as diehard New England Patriot fans, take a trip to the 2017 Super Bowl to see their idol, Tom Brady.
Based on the true story of five friends who, together, created the “Over 80 for Brady” fan club – the film shows the camaraderie between them and how precious good friends really are.

Knock At The Cabin
Based on Paul Tremblay’s 2018 horror novel ‘The Cabin at The End of The World’, M Night Shyamalan brings his attuned skill in creating suspense to reimagine this story for cinema.
During their vacation at a remote cabin, couple Andrew and Eric and their adopted daughter find themselves taken hostage by four armed strangers. The strangers present the family with an unthinkable ultimatum to avert an ‘oncoming apocalypse’. Cut off from the outside world with little to no communication, the family must make a difficult decision based on their beliefs before all is lost.
When: July 29
The 2022 biographical drama film directed by Chinonye Chukwu is based on the true story of Mamie Till-Bradely – an educator and activist who pursues justice after the lynching of her 14-year-old son, Emmett Till.
Dedicated in memory of Mamie and Emmet Till’s lives and legacy, the film reframes the historically horrific murder within a mother’s grief – and the inextinguishable ember of courage that Mamie Till continued to carry with her to the end of her days.
