MWPAI Film Series: The White Crow

Location: Sinnott Family - Bank of Utica Auditorium

2 and 7:30 pm

Directed by Ralph Fiennes, 2019, United Kingdom, Rated R, 127 min.

The White Crow chronicles Rudolph Nureyev’s poverty-stricken childhood in the Soviet city of Ufa, to his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad, to his arrival at the epicenter of western culture in Paris in the early 1960s and a nail-biting stand-off at the Le Bourget airport—site of the iconic dancer's famed defection from the Soviet Union to the West in 1961, despite KGB efforts to stop him. Directed by Ralph Fiennes from a screenplay by David Hare (The Hours), The White Crow is the true story of an incredible journey by a unique artist who transformed the world of ballet forever. Acclaimed dancer Oleg Ivenko stars as Nureyev, alongside Adèle Exarchopoulos (Blue Is the Warmest Color) as Clara Saint, and Fiennes as Russian ballet coach Alexander Pushkin.

MWPAI Film Series: Wild Nights with Emily

Location: Sinnott Family - Bank of Utica Auditorium

2 and 7:30 pm

Directed by Madeleine Olnek, 2019, United States, Rated PG-13, 84 min.

In the mid-19th century, Emily Dickinson is writing prolifically, baking gingerbread, and enjoying a passionate, lifelong romantic relationship with another woman, her friend and sister-in-law Susan. Beloved comic Molly Shannon leads in this humorous yet bold reappraisal of Dickinson, informed by her private letters. While seeking publication of some of the 1,775 poems written during her lifetime, Emily (Shannon) finds herself facing a troupe of male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously. Instead, her work attracts the attention of an ambitious woman editor, who also sees Emily as a convenient cover for her own role in buttoned-up Amherst's most bizarre love triangle. A timely critique of how women's history is rewritten, the film remains vibrant, irreverent and tender—a perhaps closer depiction of Emily Dickinson's real life than anything seen before.

Open Caption Wednesdays

Both Wednesday screenings will feature Open Captions (subtitles) for the benefit of our deaf or hearing-impaired guests. Please be aware that this service is not always available from the film distributor, but will be provided whenever possible.

Fourth Annual Bernie Uebelhoer Memorial Hitchcock Film: The Man Who Knew Too Much

Location: Sinnott Family - Bank of Utica Auditorium

2:00 and 7:30

Free Admission

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 1956, 120 minutes

Bernie Uebelhoer enjoyed and supported the MWPAI Film Series. His family and friends have generously established a memorial fund to continue that support and keep Bernie’s memory alive through the medium he loved most. Please join us during our annual Summer Arts Festival as we honor Bernie’s memory with this special screening of a classic film by his favorite director.

Dr. Ben McKenna (James Stewart) is on vacation with his wife (Doris Day) and son in Morocco when a chance encounter with a stranger sets their trip, and their lives, on a drastically different course. The stranger, killed in front of the family in the marketplace, reveals an assassination plot to the Americans. The couple's son is abducted in order to ensure the plot is kept secret, and suddenly the mother and father, with no help from the police, must figure out a way to get their child back.
