The QUAD is a venerable theater owned and beautifully maintained since 1972. It is renowned nationally as a venue that shows the best in independent feature, documentary, and foreign films. Although most of the films come from distributors like Sony Pictures Classics, Lionsgate, and the Weinstein Company, the QUAD books many films through its wholly-owned distribution outlets, QUADFlix SELECT (http://www.quadflixselect.com) and QUAD CINEMA 4 WALL SELECT (http://www.quadcinema4wall.com).



Theater One 1:30 3:30 6:00 7:45 9:55
Love Hunter is the story of Milan Mumin, a larger-than-life frontman of a hugely influential Serbian band Love Hunters who, during the nineties, galvanized young generations fighting an oppressive regime. Ten years later, Milan is in New York City, driving a taxi to pay for his first American album. Milan takes us on a bumpy ride as he rides all over NYC picking up a motley crew of passengers to scramble money for his recording. He loses a bass player and has to sift through New York musicians until he finds a promising replacement - and a romantic spark in a free-spirited female bassist. Just as the rehearsals start picking up steam, Milan's longtime Serbian girlfriend arrives with very different plans for their future.

SPECIAL TREAT: Q&A following the 7:45 showing on Friday 11/14 with Jelena Stupljanin, Milan Mumin, Nemanja Bala and Brane Bala.

Theater Two 3:00 & 8:20
After the death of his parents and the impending loss of his family home, a young romantic invites his friends and ex-girlfriend to a memorial celebration. Things take a turn when none in attendance share his nostalgia for the good old days, but as the weekend progresses the house brings out the adolescence in all of them. What follows is an evening full of drinking and dancing, laughter and secrets, sex, drugs, mischief and regret. Chris Lowell's (Veronica Mars, The Help) award-winning directorial debut is "stunning in its simplicity, but ovation-worthy in its visual audacity," according to the Entertainment Tonight, and stars a brilliant young cast including Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist), Beck Bennett (Saturday Night Live), Brett Dalton (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Reid Scott (Veep).

Brandy Burre had a recurring role on HBO's The Wire when she gave up her career to start a family. When she decides to reclaim her life as an actor, the domestic world she's carefully created crumbles around her. Using elements of melodrama and cinema verité, ACTRESS is both a present tense portrait of a dying relationship and an exploration of a complicated woman, performing the role of herself, in a complex-yet-familiar story. It's a film about starring in the movie of your life. This is what happens when we break the rules.

OCCUPY THE FARM tells the story of a community’s fight to save public land for urban farming.

When 200 farmers march to the gates of the last farmland in the urban East Bay near Oakland, they don't carry signs protesting University of California’s plans to build a shopping center. Instead, they carry tents, tools and 15,000 seedlings. They clip the padlock off the gate and march onto the fields. What happens next will change the fate of the land and introduce a new strategy for activism.

From tilling soil and watering vegetables to police raids, from lawsuits to overflowing harvests, OCCUPY THE FARM reveals a resourceful, creative, and determined community responding with direct action to a serious social need: access to healthy food.

Running time: 1:30
