Deconstructing the Birth of the Beatles

Deconstructing the Birth of the Beatles(2018)
THE BIRTH OF THE BEATLES
In the late fifties, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Richard Starkey were just four Liverpudlian teenagers who picked up guitars (or drumsticks) and decided to play music. With no formal training and no ability to read or write music, they tried to emulate their American rock heroes. Within a few years, they would change music history (and the world) forever.
Coming off the great success of Deconstructing The Beatles Season 1 ("The White Album," "Sgt. Pepper," "Revolver" & "Rubber Soul"), The Liberty Theatre is excited to bring to you DECONSTRUCTING THE BEATLES Season 2!
After years of touring the country performing his dynamic lectures live in cinemas, theaters and corporate boardrooms, composer/producer Scott Freiman, through the auspices of “In Performance at the Jacob Burns Film Center,” has recorded his second series of lectures that are now available to audiences everywhere.

Summer in the Forest
July 27 & 28 & 29
Summer in the Forest(2018)
Like countless others Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were labeled 'idiots', locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release - the first time in history that anyone had beaten the system. Together they created L'Arche, a commune at the edge of a beautiful forest near Paris. A quiet revolution was born.

Now in his 80s, and still at L'Arche, Jean has discovered something that most of us have forgotten - what it is to be human, to be foolish, and to be happy.

SUMMER IN THE FOREST invites us to abandon the rat race and forge new friendships. Amid the ancient trees, Philippe, Patrick, Jean and the others welcome us into their lives. If there are rules to break, they will be broken and if there is a truth to be told, they will tell it. Michel reveals his war torn past, Andre is desperate for a date, and young David will prove himself a hero in the fight against the forces of evil.

Cakemaker, The
July 27 & 28 & 29
The Cakemaker(2018)
New York Times Critics Pick
Drool-worthy confectionery expresses unspoken emotions in “The Cakemaker,” the first feature from the writer and director Ofir Raul Graizer and a master class in exquisite restraint.

Beginning as one thing and ending as quite another, this softly lighted melodrama follows Thomas (Tim Kalkhof), a reserved German pastry chef with a cozy cafe in Berlin and a handsome Israeli lover, Oren (Roy Miller). Once a month or so, Oren arrives in Berlin for business — and a generous slice of Black Forest gâteau — leaving a wife, Anat (Sarah Adler), and young son back in Jerusalem.

When Oren dies suddenly between visits, Thomas, obeying some primal instinct and with no clear purpose, immediately travels to Jerusalem. Concealing his identity, he takes a part-time job in the small cafe run by Oren’s weary young widow, so impressing her and her customers with his piping skills that he soon becomes a fixture.
This doesn’t sit well with Moti (Zohar Strauss), Anat’s Orthodox brother-in-law, whose disapproval of the lonely gentile in their midst subtly pokes at historical animus. Yet social and religious undercurrents remain mostly muted; and while Moti might be worried about the newcomer’s effect on the cafe’s kosher certification, he’s also kind enough to ensure that Thomas doesn’t eat Shabbat supper alone.
Relying on warm intuition over cold logic, “The Cakemaker” can at times seem almost detached from reality, its characters mere symbols in a delicate fable about the fluidity of attachment and the permeability of boundaries. Thomas’s gentle diffidence, and his director’s fiercely rigorous style, leave his motives denser than unproved sourdough. With no back story or visible friends or family, he’s a smooth-skinned enigma whose soft, cushiony physicality anchors the movie’s tactile preoccupations. Is he seeking a companion in sorrow or an immersion in a life that was always kept hidden? He isn’t saying, but his kind eyes and busily kneading hands are somehow eloquence enough.
Sad and sweet, and with a rare lyricism, “The Cakemaker” believes in a love that neither nationality, sexual orientation nor religious belief can deter. Some may find its reticence off-putting or even irritating, but at heart it’s just a tender love triangle with a ghost in the middle. And a mouthwatering abundance of crème fraîche.-Jeannette Catsoulis

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948)(2018)
Commemorating Director John Huston on what would have been his 112th Birthday (Born August 5, 1906) with one of his memorable classics, THE TREASURE OF SIERRA MADRE, which celebrates a 70 year milestone this year.

Is there anything better than John Huston working with Humphrey Bogart?

Join us at the Liberty Theatre for one of the best, and most overlooked director/actor teams in cinema. Huston consistently knew how to push Bogart to his best and "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (1948) is no different. Adding to the already exceptional mix is a wonderful supporting cast, including an Oscar winning turn by John Huston’s father Walter. The younger Huston always proved himself a fantastic director, and Sierra Madre is a beautiful, thrilling, and thought provoking work of cinematic art.
