Born in China

(G) Running time:76 minutes

Disneynature's new True Life Adventure film "Born In China" takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard-an elusive animal rarely caught on camera-faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China's vast terrain-from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest-on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together

Going in Style

(PG-13) Running time:96 minutes

Oscar winners Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”), Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules,” “Hannah and Her Sisters”) and Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty, in director Zach Braff’s comedy “Going in Style.” Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money. The film also stars two-time Oscar nominee Ann-Margret (“Tommy,” “Carnal Knowledge”) as Annie, a grocery cashier who’s been checking Al out in more ways than one and Joey King (“Wish I Was Here”), as Joe’s whip-smart granddaughter, Brooklyn. John Ortiz (“Silver Linings Playbook”) stars as Jesus, a man of unspecified credentials who agrees to show the guys the ropes, and Peter Serafinowicz (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Joe’s former son-in-law, Murphy, whose pot clinic connections may finally prove useful; with Oscar nominee Matt Dillon (“Crash”) as FBI Agent Hamer; and Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future” trilogy) as the guys’ lodge buddy, Milton. Zach Braff (“Garden State”) directs from a screenplay by Theodore Melfi (“Hidden Figures,” “St. Vincent”). “Going in Style” is produced by Donald De Line (“The Italian Job”). The executive producers are Toby Emmerich, Samuel J. Brown, Michael Disco, Andrew Haas, Jonathan McCoy, Tony Bill, who was a producer on the 1979 film “Going in Style,” and Bruce Berman. The creative filmmaking team includes Emmy-nominated director of photography Rodney Charters (“24”); production designer Anne Ross (“Lost in Translation”); editor Myron Kerstein (Braff’s “Garden State” and “Wish I Was Here”); costume designer Gary Jones (“New Year’s Eve”); and composer Rob Simonsen (“Foxcatcher,” “Wish I was Here”). “Going in Style” is scheduled for release on April 7, 2017.

About Kennedy School Theater

Feature films with a slice and a brew...

Comfy old sofas, armchairs and tables for two make for memorable movie-going experiences at Kennedy School. And we're not talking about science class documentaries, either. Nowadays, this former school auditorium is home to nightly showings of second-run feature films and more.

The auditorium features murals representing the remarkable history of Kennedy School and its surrounding neighborhood. Ample space allows up to 300 fans of the silver screen to take in a flick — made all the more enjoyable with the addition of our handcrafted ales, wines and spirits along with pub fare, delivered to you during the show from the adjacent Theater Bar.

Whether visiting Kennedy School Theater to enjoy the movies you missed at the big cinema multiplex or taking in a movie as part of an overnight stay, you're bound to have a different experience at the Kennedy School than at just about any other movie theater around.

Accommodations Closed Captioning 

Our theater offers a quality entertainment experience for deaf, hard of hearing and vision impaired guests. Our movie showings are closed captioned, and we offer individual Captiview closed caption devices. In addition, we offer two types of headphones: hearing impaired headphones that amplify the dialogue, or visual impaired headphones that describe the scenery and action. Just inquire before showtime to use any of these devices.
