In 2029, Logan is a sickly shadow of his former self. Undertaking a final mission, Logan struggles to secure a future for mutantkind in the far-off land of Eden. Hugh Jackman plays the role that made him famous for the final time, and filmmaker James Mangold takes the tale of the Wolverine from the pages of Marvel Comics into an epic, elegiac (and R-rated) western. This noir edition concludes Logan’s story in evocative black-and-white; Sir Patrick Stewart co-stars. (2017, 137 min, DCP ‘Scope)

+ MAD MAX: FURY ROAD – BLACK & CHROME EDITION 9:30
George Miller’s revival his post-apocalyptic action franchise blew the roof off movie houses and blazed away with a truckful of Oscars. Tom Hardy steps into the title role, bringing wounded gravitas to the wasteland warrior; Charlize Theron is equally fine as the hard-driving Imperator Furiosa, whom Max joins in a struggle for freedom from the tyrannical Immortan Joe. Fury Road erupts with visual creativity, and effortlessly balances memorable characters, feminist subtexts, and an abundance of insane stunt work that must be seen to be believed. Now experience it in Miller’s preferred palette: black & white! (2015, 120 min, DCP ‘Scope)
