Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vanger’s are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Based on the international best-selling novel by Stieg Larsson


Directed by Niels Arden Opley; Rated [R]; 152 minutes; In Swedish with English subtitles

JULIA
Friday July 10 – Thurs. July 16 @ 7:30pm nightly

Academy Award-winner Tilda Swinton plays Julia, a manipulative, unreliable, compulsive liar, and an alcoholic. Between shots of vodka and one-night stands, Julia gets by on nickel-and-dime jobs. Increasingly lonely, the only consideration she receives comes from her friend Mitch, who tries to help her. After a chance encounter with Elena, a Mexican woman, Julia convinces herself – as much in panic and despair as for financial gain – to commit a violent act. As the story unfolds, her journey becomes a headlong flight on a collision course, but somehow she makes the choice of life over death.

“Riveting…an actress at the height of her expressive power.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“A messy, nervy, frequently exhilarating thriller.” – Scott Foundas, Village Voice/LA Weekly

As you might have figured out by now, we’re serious film fans. So when we found four of Master Of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock’s four greatest films were being pulled out of the vaults at Universal, we got giddy. And we have reason to — they look and sound better than they have since their original theatrical releases. Remastered in the highest quality high-definition picture and sound, we are thrilled to be able to share “The Birds” (Mar. 24), “Rear Window” (Mar. 25), “Vertigo” (Mar. 26) and “Psycho” (Mar. 27) with you as part of this very special engagement. Please join us so that Universal is keen to go back to the vaults for more great classics.

“Just Another Love Story” is about Jonas, a likable family man with a wife and two kids. Jonas’s life takes an unexpected twist when he inadvertently causes Julia to crash her car. The next day, Julia wakes up in a hospital with amnesia and Jonas comes to visit. In a grotesque mix-up, Julia and her family mistake Jonas for her exotic new boyfriend Sebastian, whose return from abroad they had all been expecting. Jonas assumes the other’s identity, and a boundless world opens up to him. But one day, truth comes knocking at the door.

“A creative mix of horror, noir and psychological thriller…viewers will find themselves caught up in the film’s intensity.” -V.A. Musetto, The New York Post

Fragile, anxious 12-year-old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boy’s wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him with her father. A pale, serious young girl, she only comes out at night and doesn’t seem affected by the freezing temperatures. It doesn’t take long before he figures out that Eli is a vampire. But by now a subtle romance has blossomed between Oskar and Eli, and she gives him the strength to fight back against his aggressors. Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson weaves friendship, rejection and loyalty into a disturbing and darkly atmospheric, yet poetic and unexpectedly tender tableau of adolescence.

“A spectacularly moving and elegant film that is, at this point, the best movie of the year.” -John Anderson, Washington Post

“I loved it, and it’s possibly the best vampire movie ever.” -Rob Newton, Creative Director of The Cape Ann Community Cinema
