Movies in February
It’s award season. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences have announced their nominees for the best in filmmaking in 2023. The broadcast of the 96th Annual “Oscars” Presentation will take place on Sunday, March 10th. So we have a month to show as many of the Best Picture Nominees as possible before March 10th. The Playhouse has already shown 4 of the 10 Best Picture Nominees (Barbie, Oppenheimer, The Killers of the Flower Moon, and Past Lives) so it is 5 films of the remaining 6 that we either were unable to get when they were released due to scheduling conflicts or they didn’t seem to resonate with our audience at the time. Occasionally, the film just flew under our radar or went almost immediately to a streaming service (“Maestro” which we won’t be screening). But we have been able to fit almost all of them into our screening schedule.
Join us for “American Fiction” from February 16- 22, The Zone of Interest from February 23- March 1, and The Anatomy of a Fall from March 2- March 8.
We hope you can join us for this month of viewing some of the best American and international films of 2023.
Our winter hours are Friday, Saturday, Wednesday & Thursday at 6:30 PM and Sunday at 2:00 PM. Our Sunday Matinee is shown with open captions
All Films are subject to change based upon availability.

|“The commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp. Based on a novel by Matin Amis, this film has been nominated for 5 “Oscars” including Best Picture, Best Director =, Best Foreign Film, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound.”
|“The story begins when Samuel is found dead in the snow outside the isolated chalet where he lived with his wife Sandra, a German writer, and their partially-sighted 11-year-old son Daniel. An investigation leads to a conclusion of “suspicious death”: it’s impossible to know for sure whether he took his own life or was killed. Sandra is indicted, and we follow her trial which pulls the couple’s relationship apart. Daniel is caught in the middle: between the trial and their home life, doubts take their toll on the mother-son relationship. Nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing, and =Best Actress for Sandra Huller. “
