Armageddon Time

From acclaimed filmmaker James Gray (The Immigrant), and featuring an ensemble cast including Emmy winner Jeremy Strong (HBO’s Succession), Academy Award-winner Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables), and Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs), Armageddon Time is a deeply personal coming-of-age story about the strength of family and the generational pursuit of the American Dream.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)

"It asks more questions than it answers, and doesn’t let anybody off the hook. It’s also a great movie for anyone who grew up in New York City area in 1980, with the right needle drops and art direction. This is James Gray’s eighth feature and, in the end, his simplest. It may also be his best."
Jordan Hoffman, AV Club
"You could compare Armageddon Time to autobiographical reflections like Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma or, to a lesser extent, Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast, both stories in which kids’ eyes are suddenly opened to the unfairness of the world. But for all its tenderness, this isn’t a movie that allows you to make peace with yourself, or with our highly imperfect world."
