Director: Richard Linklater. Stars: Blake Jenner, Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman. On the heels of his success with the groundbreaking drama Boyhood, director Richard Linklater shifts gears to sports for this comedy about a successful college baseball team that plays hard both on and off the diamond.

Director: Gavin Hood. Stars: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman. Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer, is in command of a top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, Powell discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from "capture" to "kill." But as an American pilot is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute, reaching the highest levels of US and British government, over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare.
*HANGMEN – An NT Live production (12+) 180 min. Following a sell-out run at London’s Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan, In Bruges) returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster’s award-winning production of his deeply funny new play Hangmen, broadcast live to cinemas by National Theatre Live. In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey – The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging? Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman – Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn – Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for their visit. Sponsored by the Bucknell University Departments of Art, Classics, English, Theatre and Dance, the Bucknell Arts Council and Office of the Provost.

Despite the many rifts between them, Anna and the monarch come to respect and to love one another.

Director: Xavier Giannoli. Stars: Catherine Frot, André Marcon, Michel Fau. In Paris , 1921 we meet wealthy Marguerite Dumont, who has a horribly misplaced musical ambition - She loves to sing, and is encouraged by her friends and neighbors who appreciate her lavish hospitality, as well as her kind husband, but is actually a dreadful singer. When a provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent and this gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husband's reluctance, and with the help of a has-been diva, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers.
ZOOTOPIA (PG) 108 min. Animation, Action, Adventure. This brilliantly well-rounded film offers a thoughtful, inclusive message that's as rich and timely as its sumptuously state-of-the-art animation.
