Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!

When a member of a popular New York City improv troupe gets a huge break, the rest of the group – all best friends – start to realize that not everyone is going to make it after all.  Directed by Michael Birbiglia (Sleepwalk With Me) and produced by Ira Glass (of NPR), Don’t Think Twice stars Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, and a top-flight cast of comic actors. Funny, insightful and honest, Don’t Think Twice looks at a common   experience that’s an uncommon subject for a film: failure. Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal writes that “Don’t Think Twice shines as an improv procedural, a film that celebrates, in illuminating detail, the skills and anxieties of this showbiz subgenre.” Alan Scherstuhl of the Village Voice lauds Birbiglia’s work as “the best, most revealing film about comedy people and one of the best about artistic collaboration.”


Equity Movie at the Carlisle Theatre


September 2-15, 2016

When senior investment banker Naomi Bishop (Anna Gunn, of Breaking Bad) is passed over for a promotion at her firm, she fights for the opportunity to take a start-up public, hoping this promising IPO will secure her a place at the firm’s highest level. But when an employee at the start-up raises questions about a possible crack in the company’s walls, Naomi must decide whether to investigate rumors that may compromise the deal, or push forward with the confidence her superiors expect. Directed by Meera Menon, from a story by Alysia Reiner, Amy Fox, and Sara Megan Thomas, Equity also stars James Purefoy and Craig Bierko. A.O. Scott of the New York Times writes that Equity “turns its unflappable gaze on a maddeningly complex reality and transforms it into a swift, clear and exciting story.” Tirdad Derakhshani of the Philadelphia Inquirer calls the film an “intensely intelligent, well-written, and mature exploration of the unwritten rules women have to follow if they want to succeed in high finance.”
