NOW SHOWING and COMING ATTRACTIONS at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre:

 
 


5 to 7
April 17-22


“5 to 7” is a romantic comedy about a chance encounter on the streets of Manhattan that draws 20-something aspiring writer Brian (Anton Yelchin) into a passionate love affair with a glamorous French woman (Skyfall Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe). The catch? She's married, and can only meet him for hotel room trysts between the hours of 5 and 7.
 
Neither party can resist the other. Before long, Brian has broken every rule he ever had for himself. And he’s never been happier.
 
Amid the comedy of the clash of cultures, world views and personal ethics — peppered by the surprising reactions of those around them — Brian and Arielle fall more and more deeply in love. But, while the hours of 5 to 7 each day may suit Arielle perfectly, Brian begins to hunger for more. Soon, they must face the most important decision of their lives. We don’t choose love, it chooses us. The question is how hard we’re willing to fight for it when there are a thousand reasons to let go. In “5 to 7”, the remarkable answer is equal parts romance, laughter and tears as both learn hard won lessons about life and love.

 
Co-starring Frank Langella, Glenn Close, Lambert Wilson, and Olivia Thirlby, this sexy romance captures the giddy thrill, the pain and the comedy of being young and falling in love.
 
“5 to 7” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre April 17-22. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday, April 17; 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 18; 7 p.m. on Monday, April 20; 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21; and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22.  

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.

An Honest Liar
April 17-22


“An Honest Liar” is a feature documentary about truth and deception and the life of world-famous magician, escape artist and master skeptic, James ‘The Amazing’ Randi. The film brings to life Randi’s intricate investigations that publicly exposed psychics, faith healers, and con artists with quasi-religious fervor.
 
Randi’s dazzling acts of mind reading and mentalism convinced people he had psychic powers, giving him the opportunity to use these skills to take advantage of credulous people. Randi saw many others doing just that. He discovered faith healers, fortunetellers, and psychics using his beloved mentalism and magic tricks — not to entertain, but to steal money and destroy lives. Enraged by this, Randi would devote his life to protecting the public from such thieves.
 
A master deceiver who came out of the closet at the age of 81, Randi created fictional characters, fake psychics, and even turned his partner of 25 years, the artist Jose Alvarez, into a sham guru named Carlos. But when a shocking revelation in Randi’s personal life is discovered, it isn’t clear whether Randi is still the deceiver — or the deceived.

 
 
“An Honest Liar” relives these twisted tales of deception through interviews with people such as Penn & Teller, Adam Savage, Bill Nye, Alice Cooper, and many of the original participants in his adventures. The stories are brought to life through a wealth of rare, behind-the-scenes, and never-before-seen footage.
 
“An Honest Liar” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre April 17-22. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Friday, April 17; 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 19; and 4 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday, April 20 and 22. 
 
Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.

Free screening: Cowspiracy
April 21


ADDITIONAL FREE SHOW ADDED for "Cowspiracy":
Saturday, April 18 at 7 p.m.


Come to the Theatre for your FREE tickets!


“Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret” is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.
 
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean "dead zones," and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.
 
As Andersen approaches leaders in the environmental movement, he increasingly uncovers what appears to be an intentional refusal to discuss the issue of animal agriculture, while industry whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom and even his life if he dares to persist.
 
As eye-opening as “Blackfish” and as inspiring as “An Inconvenient Truth”, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population. 
 
A free screening of “Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret” will take place on Tuesday, April 21 at 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

The free screenings are made possible by a generous sponsorship from Adele Sands as part of the Eagle Quetzal Condor Global Conference taking place in Sedona.

To reserve your free tickets, please call 928-282-1177 or click on the link below. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.

Match
April 23


The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present its Premiere Series with the one-night-only debut of “Match”, starring Patrick Stewart. The film will show Thursday, April 23 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
 
Patrick Stewart gives a captivating performance in this witty, emotionally gripping adaptation of director Stephen Belber’s own Tony Award-nominated play. Stewart stars as Tobi, an eccentric, Manhattan ballet instructor whose quiet life is interrupted by the arrival of a young couple (Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard) from Seattle, presumably there to interview him about his colorful life as a dancer in the 1960s.

 
 
As Tobi spins salacious tales from his former career, an ulterior motive for the couple’s visit emerges, forcing the trio to confront a secret that may connect them all. Driven by Stewart’s tour-de-force performance, “Match” moves masterfully between razor-sharp comic banter and heartrending poignancy.
 
Critics are raving about “Match”. The Huffington Post calls it “Dynamite! Patrick Stewart gives one of his greatest performances!” Renowned critic Pete Hammond says “Stewart is given the role of a lifetime. A simply unforgettable performance! A must see!”
 
“Match” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre one day only: Thursday, April 23 at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.

3 Hearts
April 26-29


Catherine Deneuve stars in “3 Hearts” — a touching drama about destiny, connections, and passion. The award-winning film, from the director of “Farewell My Queen”, presents a headily romantic look at a classic love triangle.
 
One night in provincial France, Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde) meets Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after missing his train back to Paris. Instantly and intensely drawn to one another, they wander through the streets until morning in rare, almost choreographed, harmony. A thwarted plan for a second meeting sends each in a separate direction — Sylvie reunites with her ex and leaves France; Marc falls in love and marries.
 
What neither knows is that Marc’s new bride is Sylvie’s sister, Sophie (Chiara Mastroianni). Upon Sylvie’s return to France, the spark between her and Marc is reignited in ways that will forever alter the relationships between sister to sister and husband to wife.

 
“With a certain Hitchcockian elegance, ‘3 Hearts’ is a romantic drama with the sensibility of a thriller,” says New York Magazine.
 
“3 Hearts” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre April 26-29. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Sunday and Monday, April 26 and 27; and 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 28 and 29.

Zenprov Comedy: Far Out Man!
April 25


If you grew-up in the 60s and 70s, you won’t want to miss Zenprov Comedy’s “Far Out Man — A laugh back at the 60s & 70s.” This one-night only performance happens Saturday, April 25 at 7:30 pm at the Mary Fisher Theatre in Sedona. Tickets are $12 per-sale, or $15 at the door. 
 

“Zenprov is the best comedy troupe in Arizona,” said Mr. Patrick Schweiss, Executive Director of the Sedona International Film Festival. “People were laughing so hard their cheeks were hurting.”
 
If you’ve never attended one of their live performances before, Zenprov Comedy is similar to the popular improvised TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” The troupe performs fast-paced games and scenes created in the moment—always based on audience suggestions. Unlike sketch or standup comedy, nothing is rehearsed or prepared ahead of time. Best of all, it’s never the same show twice. 


 
“Everyone in the troupe lived through the 60s or 70s, so we’re excited to revisit both the silly and profound moments and make fun of them,” said Derek Dujardin, director of Zenprov Comedy.

 
One of the games has an actor reading lines from an original “Brady Bunch” TV script while the other actors must justify what is said to help the scene make sense in a totally different context, such as a job interview or working at Starbucks. Another game includes twisted version of “The Dating Game” except the bachorlettes might be Timothy Leary, Janis Joplin and Richard Nixon.
 
Opening for Zenprov will be special guest musician Michael Fridley, who will be performing mash-up medley of different songs from the 60s and 70s expertly woven together.  
 
The Zenprov Comedy players embrace the Del Close method of improv acting, which emphasizes the “group mind” that mysteriously develops during a performance. Miraculously, the player’s minds fuse together to create a “super mind” where they practically finish each other’s sentences—and often do. Laughter ensues.
 
The super minds of Zenprov Comedy are Derek Dujardin, Shaeri Richards, Chris Redish, Bryan Cooperrider, Shaunn Cochran, Betty Testa, Linda Roemer and Mary Carder.


 
Tickets are $12 pre-sale and $15 the day of the show. This one-night-only performance is expected to sell out so please purchase tickets early. Tickets can be purchased online at www.zenprovcomedy.com, or in person at Crystal Magic in Sedona or Jerona Java Café in Cottonwood with either cash or checks.

 
The Mary D. Fisher Theater is located across the street from Harkin’s Movie Theater on 2030 St. Rt. 89A. Doors open at 7:00 PM. Shows are family friendly (rated PG-13) and run approximately 90 minutes. Visit www.ZenprovComedy.com to learn more.
 


A View from the Bridge: National Theatre of London
April 27


The National Theatre of London continues its season with “A View from the Bridge” showing in Sedona on Monday, April 27 at 4 p.m. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere at its Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
 
Don’t miss a stellar cast led by Mark Strong (The Imitation Game; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) in the Young Vic’s “magnetic, electrifying, astonishingly bold” production of “A View from the Bridge” — the Evening Standard, Guardian and Independent’s top theatre pick of 2014.
 
The great Arthur Miller confronts the American dream in this dark and passionate tale. In Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom.

Deli Man
April 30


The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present its Premiere Series with the one-night-only debut of “Deli Man”, an award-winning new documentary featuring Jerry Stiller, Larry King and Fyvush Finkel. The film will show Thursday, April 30 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
                                     
“Deli Man” features more than 160 years of tradition served up by the Jewish deli owners, operators and fanatics who are keeping hot pastrami hot — a culinary must.
 
Jewish culture reflects the heart of a vital ethnic history. As that culture continues to shift and adapt alongside mainstream America, delicatessen food – as its name suggests – remains a beloved communal delicacy.
 
In Houston, Texas, third-generation deli man Ziggy Gruber has built arguably the finest delicatessen restaurant in the U.S.  His story – augmented by the stories of iconic delis such as Katz’s, 2nd Avenue Deli, Nate ‘n Al, Carnegie, and the Stage – embodies a tradition indelibly linked to its savory, nostalgic foods.

Of course the story of deli isn’t Ziggy’s alone. It’s the history, anecdotes and humor that once made one’s local delicatessen the virtual epicenter not only of food, but of family, laughter and community.

 
 
“Deli Man” has interviewed some of the great connoisseurs of deli, including Jerry Stiller, Alan Dershowitz, Freddie Klein, Dennis Howard, Jay Parker (Ben’s Best), Fyvush Finkel, and Larry King. The documentary has also toured some of the new shining lights in the deli biz, including Wise Son’s in San Francisco and Caplansky’s in Toronto.
 
You are what you eat. So join us for some raucous laughter, an existential discussion about what makes pastrami pastrami and a bissele of shpilkus.
 
“Deli Man” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre one day only: Thursday, April 30 at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.
