Showing starts at 7:20pm but we'll meet at 7:05pm at the front entrance and go in to find seat seats altogether. Be sure to arrive early enough for parking and to buy your tickets. Tickets cost $11.50.

ABOUT the movie: This gorgeous new drama from director Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech, Les Misérables) tells the remarkable love story of Einar and Gerda Wegener, artists in 1920s Copenhagen, and Einar’s trailblazing journey as one of the first persons to have gender reassignment surgery. Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne gives an amazing, transformative performance as Einar, who becomes Lili Elbe. Alicia Vikander plays his loving wife Gerda, who at first encourages and tutors him, but later fears to lose the person she loves. The first time Einar dons ladies’ clothes, the idea is Gerda’s; her model is late for an unfinished portrait and Gerda suggests that her husband stand in. Einar does, and loves the feeling of silk stockings, unleashing feelings he had long struggled with. When the model—ballerina friend Ulla (Amber Heard)—arrives late, she is amused and christens Einar’s alter ego “Lili.” Gerda’s paintings of Lili become the rage, and soon everyone wants to meet the mysterious Lili.
