WELCOME TO THE QUAD CINEMA

The QUAD is a venerable theater owned and beautifully maintained by the same family 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 approved 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).

SMALL TIME [R]

Theater One 1:10 3:10 5:20 7:20 9:30
Inspired by a true story, Al Klein (Meloni) and his longtime friend, Ash Martini (Norris) own a used car lot. These two know every trick in the book when it comes to selling cars. Martini is a good time Charley, who never settled down. Klein, however, still pines for his ex-wife Barbara (Moynahan) who left him years ago for a more successful man. After their son, Freddy (Bostick) graduates high school, he decides to forego college in favor of selling cars with his old man. Klein is thrilled when Freddy moves in with him - it's the first time these two have lived under one roof since Freddy was kid. Barbara, on the other hand, is very far from thrilled. But what’s good for Klein might not be the best thing for Freddy, as Freddy quickly transforms from innocent young man into a seasoned car salesman...leaving Al with a tough decision to make.

CESAR'S LAST FAST [NR]

Theater Two 1:00 3:00 5:10 7:10 9:45
In the summer of 1988 Cesar Chavez, then 61 years old, embarked on a water­only fast – a personal act of penance for not having done enough to stop growers from spraying toxic pesticides on farm workers. For more than a month no one, including Cesar, knew when he would eat again. Structured around dramatic never-before-seen footage, this film focuses on the story of how Chavez organized America’s poorest, least educated workers, built a movement that successfully challenged our nation’s powerful agribusiness, and launched the modern day Latino civil rights movement in the U.S. Motivated by Catholic social teaching, Chavez risked his life in pursuit economic justice for America’s most vulnerable workforce.

Running Time: 1:40

SPECIAL TREAT: Q&A with Director, Richard Ray Perez Friday, 04/18 and Saturday 4/19 following the 7:10pm show.


TASTING MENU [PG-13 ]

Theater Three 1:15 3:30 5:25 7:30 9:20
One of the greatest restaurants in the world is closing and an eclectic mix of international patrons have arrived in beautiful Catalonia for the final dinner service in this witty and delicious ensemble comedy. As members of the staff prepare and serve an audacious tasting menu, a young couple in the midst of a divorce who made their reservation a year ago (before separating) reunite for this once-in-a-lifetime meal. Can their romance be rekindled with the help of the widowed countess dining with her husband's ashes? Will the brilliant chef be able to pull off a perfect finale? An Irish and Spanish co-production, TASTING MENU, like all great ensemble dramedies centered on culinary delights, is a crowd-pleasing mishmash of relationships, feuds, and broken dreams that mend through the simple act of “breaking bread” and the universal appreciation of great food. Similar in style to foodie classics like Babette’s Feast, Big Night and Chocolat, TASTING MENU will leave you awash in a European joie de vivre.

Running time: 1:25

BAD WORDS [R]

Theater Four 1:00 2:50 4:45 6:40 9:00
Jason Bateman makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy Bad Words. Mr. Bateman stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious 8th graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. As a reporter (Kathryn Hahn of We're the Millers) attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand of Homeland), who is completely unfazed by Guy's take-no-prisoners approach to life.
