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).

Even his younger selves, Jake at 40, Jake at 30 and Jake at 17, are there, too! And every one of them has tons of advice on how to fix his screwed up life.

A pair of 60-something ex-brothers-in-law sets off on a road trip through Iceland, hoping to reclaim their youth.

FINDING FELA [NR]

Theater Four 1:00 5:20 9:40
This film tells the story of Fela Kuti's life (1938 - 1997), his music, and his social and political importance. This in-depth look at the man who created Afrobeat (a fusion of Jazz, traditional West African rhythms, Funk, Highlife, and psychedelic rock) brings audiences close to Mr. Kuti's fight against the dictatorial Nigerian government of the 1970s and 1980s. With his audacious music and a great deal of courage, Fela Kuti helped bring a change towards democracy in Nigeria, promoted Pan Africanist politics to the entire world and became an inspiration in the global fight for the rights of all oppressed people.

Running time: 1:59
