2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY
Every once in a while, the Hollywood Theatre busts out a shockingly pristine 70mm print of 2001: A Space Odyssey—and for cinephiles, seeing Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece on the big screen, sitting in a sold-out and awed audience, is about as good as moviegoing gets. Now the Hollywood is showing 2001 again, but this time with a brand new print—one that’s been photochemically restored by none other than celluloid fanatic Christopher Nolan, who’ll start pontificating about how much better film is than digital given the slightest provocation. (Seriously. Across the pond, his ears probably just pricked up, somehow knowing we mentioned it.) Rather than discuss the extensive restoration process, Nolan’s using this spruced-up 2001 to remind people how much better movies can look when projected from actual film. “[The restoration discussion] tends to obfuscate the greater truth, which is that photochemical is a much higher-quality image format,” Nolan recently told Variety. “Showing people prints in the cinema is the way you best make that point, and if you could choose one movie to try to show that to people, it would be 2001.” ERIK HENRIKSEN Hollywood Theatre.

ADRIFT
An engaging, occasionally harrowing "based on a true story" survival saga, depicting Tami Oldham (Shailene Woodley) and Richard Sharp's (Sam Claflin) remarkable 1,500 mile voyage in a demasted pleasure yacht. Made in cooperation with Oldham, Adrift presents a faithful (if occasionally heightened) adaptation of her memoir; that said, neither the fizzy tropical romance that begins Tami and Richard's story nor the desperate tedium that concludes it have much of an inherent dramatic arc. Director Baltasar Kormákur (Everest) wisely intermingles the two threads. BEN COLEMAN Various Theaters.

ALWAYS AT THE CARLYLE
Matthew Miele’s documentary looks at the hoity-toity New York hotel known for the legions of rich and famous who considered the place a second home—a second home where you party as much as you want, secure in the knowledge an entire waitstaff will clean up everything you either retch, shit, or ejaculate out of your body. Starring Naomi Campbell, Anthony Bourdain, Jon Hamm, and a whole bunch of other people talking about that one time Jack Nicholson pissed in a ficus or something. Various Theaters.

B-MOVIE BINGO: NINJA 3: THE DOMINATION
Your monthly opportunity to literally check off a bingo card full of B-movie clichés! This month: the Golan & Globus-approved, sword-wielding slab of exploitative ridiculousness that is Ninja 3: The Domination, the final chapter of Cannon Films’ Ninja trilogy, starring Lucinda Dickey (best known as the female lead of Cannon Films’ Breakin’ duology) as a telephone linewoman who is also an aerobics teacher who is possessed by the undead spirit of an evil ninja warrior. BOBBY ROBERTS Hollywood Theatre.

COLLIDE-O-SCOPE
Half video art installation and half stoner gawkfest, Collide-O-Scope is the cinema-collage extravaganza created by Michael Anderson and Shane Wahlund, Seattle men who bonded over a love of oddball video—news bloopers, educational films, B-movie gems—then joined forces to bring the treasures of their exploration to the public. DAVID SCHMADER Hollywood Theatre.

FILMWORKER
A documentary about Leon Vitali, Stanley Kubrick’s sometime actor (he was the poncy dweeb in Barry Lyndon!) and longtime collaborator and assistant, or, as he prefers to be known, “filmworker.” Hollywood Theatre.

FIRST REFORMED
Writer/director Paul Schrader redeems his recent misfires with the extraordinary First Reformed, a film whose outward restraint belies emotions just as explosive as those in Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, which Schrader wrote for Martin Scorsese. Ethan Hawke gives a career-best performance as a pastor at a neglected church in upstate New York; after counseling a doomsday-minded environmentalist, he spirals into his own set of crises. In the movie’s second half, Schrader does a couple of audacious things that may alienate more literal-minded viewers, but this is a movie that seethes with ideas even as it, like Hawke’s pastor, maintains an outward asceticism. Plus, Cedric the Entertainer! NED LANNAMANN Various Theaters.

HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES

INGMAR BERGMAN: A CENTENARY CELEBRATION
For all of June and most of July, NW Film Center pays tribute to an absolute legend of cinema, Ingmar Bergman, including the biggest hits in his filmography (The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, Fanny and Alexander, and Persona) as well as many lesser-seen triumphs, all digitally restored by Janus Films and the Swedish Film Institute. NW Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium.

MOUNTAIN
Clocking in at just over an hour, there’s not a lot of there there in Mountain, but what is there is fantastic: Awe-inspiring, breath-catching, and vertigo-inducing footage of some of the most beautiful and dangerous mountains on the planet—along with footage of climbers, skiers, snowboarders, bikers, wingsuiters, slackliners, and more doing absolutely insane shit on them. With an overly dramatic score performed by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Willem Dafoe narrating occasionally purple prose, Mountain isn’t perfect, but between its wondrous, humbling aerial cinematography and its clips from battered GoPros, it’s impossible not to be caught up in the majesty and adrenaline. I watched Mountain at home on my crappy TV and I was still inspired and terrified, but don’t make my mistake—see it on the biggest screen you can. ERIK HENRIKSEN Cinema 21.

ON HER SHOULDERS
Alexandria Bombach’s documentary about 2016 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Nadia Murad won her a directing award at Sundance Film Festival. On Her Shoulders presents the astonishing story of Murad, who escaped to freedom from sex slavery after being captured by ISIS in 2014. Director in attendance. NW Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium.

QUEER COMMONS: WHITE RABBIT
Queer Commons presents Vivian Bang’s story about Sophia Lee (Bang), a performance artist who does odd jobs for TaskRabbit, and develops a pair of relationships—one with a stranger she gets pissed off at, and another with a producer who can’t tell where the performance art stops and the person begins. Hollywood Theatre.

RBG
Ruth Bader Ginsburg the Human is not a silly person. She’s fucking smart. Like, I’m-embarrassed-that-this-idiot-brain-is-the-one-I-have-to-use-to-write-about-her smart. She was the second woman confirmed to serve on the Supreme Court. She was the first woman on both the Harvard Law Review and the Columbia Law Review. She can do more push-ups than you. She eats prunes. She’s not a kooky old grandma. In fact, in terms of beloved old beings, she’s more Gandalf than Betty White. Y’all shall not pass shit. ELINOR JONES Hollywood Theatre.

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY
A very entertaining movie about a charming dipshit who succeeds despite his dumbassery. BOBBY ROBERTS Various Theaters.
