Now Showing
La Calisto
July 17-July 27
Jove, ruler of the gods, sets his sights on the beautiful nymph Calisto. But she is sworn to die a virgin. Undeterred, Jove hatches a plan to wend his way into her heart (and her bed) by donning a disguise. But when Jove's wife catches wind of the scheme, neither god nor mortal can know how far her fury will go.

Madame Butterfly
July 24-July 26
A naive young geisha, Cio-Cio-San, falls for a handsome U.S. naval officer, who loves her and leaves, promising to return. So, for three years, she waits. Then, one fine day, he does return. For a moment, Cio-Cio-San is triumphant, blind to the heartbreak that awaits her.
