(USA / 2014 / Directed by Michael Rossato-Bennet)
Unrated / 73 mins. 
Following the work of social worker Dan Cohen, Alive Inside reveals how music can awaken memories and emotions that have been asleep for years, sometimes decades.
In an effort to bring music to the lives of nursing home residents, Dan Cohen visits John, a quiet Army vet who served at Los Alamos, who perks up at the sound of the Andrews Sisters. Denise, a Schubert fan, pushes away the walking frame she’s been using every day for two years and begins to dance. Inert and depressed, the Cab Calloway-loving Henry is fully rejuvenated, swaying his arms and crooning in perfect pitch. Demonstrating how connecting the elderly to the music they love not only combats memory loss but also supplements a broken health care system often indifferent to interpersonal connections, Alive Inside is moving, inspiring, and worthy of attention.

(UK/1964/dir by Richard Lester)

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night by enjoying the new digital restoration of one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time!
Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day’s Night, in which the bandmates play wily, exuberant versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever.
Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell,” A Hard Day’s Night, which re-conceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is a deliriously entertaining film.

(USA / 2014 / Directed by Richard Linklater)
R / 163 mins.
Rare is the opportunity to see a cast age naturally over the span of a single film. Ambitiously, Richard Linklater (Before Midnight, Waking Life, Slacker) filmed this intimate domestic epic on and off since 2002, following Mason (Ellar Coltrane) from first grade through his first year of college.
The result is a deeply moving story made up of unlikely moments. Structured like a series of short films, each covering one of those 12 years, we watch as the characters grapple with life’s joys, compromises, and discoveries. Watching Coltrane age in real time along with co-stars Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, and scene-stealing Lorelei Linklater, we see deeper into their characters. For instance, Olivia (Arquette) is shown early on reading the first Harry Potter novel to her children, and in due time we watch as they eagerly line up at midnight to purchase the sixth volume. Like the best fiction, Boyhood conveys greater truth about coming to terms with the world at large, and the cumulative impact of seeing something resembling a life unfold over the course of one film is overwhelming. A humanist heartwarmer, the film celebrates getting through life’s muddles as a heroic achievement. In English and Spanish with subtitles.

Celebrate 100 Years of Charlie Chaplin’s “Tramp” … with live music by David Arner

In Rhinebeck 
August 3
Sun 1:00*
(USA / Directed by Henry Lehrman & Charlie Chaplin)
Unrated / 90 mins. 
* With live musical accompaniment by David Arner. 
In 1914, a funny looking man wearing a funky bowler hat and carrying a cane wandered into The Kid Auto Races in Venice, California and ended up delighting the confused crowd with his antics.
An early version of guerilla filmmaking (no permits were issued, no one knew who he was), Chaplin’s performance was recorded on film and exhibited in theaters for the first time as the beloved character “the Tramp.” In celebration of the character’s 100th anniversary, we’re bringing a selection of newly restored Tramp shorts to Upstate Films, with live accompaniment provided by David Arner. Titles incude: Kid Auto Races, The Rink, Behind the Screen, The Floorwalker…
