Next date: Nov 25, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

In 1997, J. K. Rowling opened a door to a magical world of wizards and witches with the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

To celebrate this special anniversary, the Gables Cinema transforms into Hogwarts with a four-week retrospective of the Harry Potter films. Whether you’re reliving the wonders of Rowling’s world or discovering it for the first time, join us as we present the epic tale of the Boy Who Lived.

Matilda - Movie Premier

Friday, Dec 8, 2017 at 7:30 PM - English

Miami and Florida premiere of the movie Matilda - Russian film sensation of the year – with Q&A session with the filmmaker Alexei Uchitel after the screening and an exclusive costume exhibition.

A big-budget historical drama, Matilda tells the true story of a romance between the heir to the Russian throne, future Emperor Nicholas II, and Matilda Kshesinskaya, a prima ballerina in St. Petersburg. Amid nationwide release in Russia, the movie has been at the center of scandal: religious activists and some parliament members say Matilda is blasphemous because it depicts the holy czar in erotic scenes.

Florida residents have a unique opportunity to see this movie with English Subtitles only a month after the Russian premiere.

Abandoned by his birth parents and unable to speak for himself, DJ Savarese ("Deej") found not only a loving family but also a life in words, which he types on a tect-to-voice synthesizer. As he makes his way through high school and dreams of college, he confronts the terrors of his past, obstacles to inclusion, and the sometimes paralyzing beauty of his own senses. In his advocacy on behalf of other nonspeaking autistics, he embraces filmmaking and poetry, and discovers what having a voice can truly mean.

Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry

Friday, Apr 13, 2018 at 8:30 PM - English

LOOK AND SEE is a cinematic portrait of the changing landscapes and shifting valuesof rural America in the era of industrial agriculture, as seen through the mind’s eye ofwriter, farmer, and activist, Wendell Berry. The first documentary about Berry, undoubtedly one of America’s most significant living writers (see “About Wendell Berry” below), LOOK AND SEE was filmed in and around the rolling hills of Henry County, Kentucky – where Berry has lived and farmed since the mid-1960’s. Filmmaker Laura Dunn skillfully weaves Berry’s poetic and prescient words with gorgeous cinematography and the testimonies of his family and neighbors, all of whom are being deeply affected by the industrial and economic changes to their agrarian way of life.
