Break the Silence: The Movie
The BTS World Tour "Love Yourself: Speak Yourself" is now over. The worldwide stadium tour topped the year's Billboard Boxscore, and marked BTS as the first Korean group to perform at Wembley Stadium. The tour took place across Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, São Paulo, London, Paris, Osaka, Shizuoka, Riyadh, and Seoul. With unprecedented access, BREAK THE SILENCE: THE MOVIE travels with BTS throughout the tour, exploring each band member behind the curtain. Offstage, we see another side of BTS. The seven members begin to candidly tell personal stories they have never voiced before. [More Info]
Friday the 13th - 40th Anniversary
One of the most successful exploitation movies turns 40 this year, and we're ready to celebrate at Camp Blood! (If the place has a death curse, so what?) Producer/director Sean S. Cunningham, who hit the horror scene with Wes Craven's THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, was inspired by HALLOWEEN to create a lean, mean terror machine — but he had no idea that his simple concept about summer camp counselors being hunted by a mysterious killer would become a cornerstone of 1980s horror. Thanks to the unforgettable score by Harry Manfredini, bloody makeup effects by Tom Savini, and smart casting, including Kevin Bacon, in one of his first movie roles, FRIDAY THE 13TH helped define a genre and became a perennial October classic.

One of the most shocking films of all time, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho changed the thriller genre forever. Join the Master of Suspense on a chilling journey as an unsuspecting victim (Janet Leigh) visits the Bates Motel and falls prey to one of cinema’s most notorious psychopaths - Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins).

Be prepared to see one of the scariest movies of all time at a special event that includes exclusive insights from Turner Classic Movies. [More Info]
The Big Chill
Lawrence Kasdan directs this charming comedy/drama about a group of college friends, all of whom have known each other since the sixties, who come together when one of their friends commits suicide, spending the weekend at a beautiful seaside home. The cast is a who's-who of amazing talent including Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Mary Kay Place, Meg Tilly, and JoBeth Williams — several of whom were just emerging into star status when THE BIG CHILL became a surprise hit..

Memories of Murder
MEMORIES OF MURDER tells the harrowing true story of the hunt for a sadistic serial rapist and murderer terrorizing a small province in 1980s South Korea. Marking the first of many successful collaborations between four-time Oscar winner Bong Joon Ho and leading man Song Kang Ho — whose film PARASITE was one of the hits of 2019 — this movie follows the paths of three increasingly desperate detectives as they attempt to decipher the violent mind of a killer in a futile effort to solve the case. Now, seventeen years after its initial release, and a year after the real culprit was identified, this cult classic takes its place as a modern masterpiece. [More Info]

Idiot Prayer – Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace
Nick Cave plays his songs at the piano in a rarely-seen stripped back form. The film features tracks including "Into My Arms," "The Mercy Seat," "Higgs-Boson Blues" and "Girl in Amber." Recorded in June 2020 and initially imagined as an online-only event, fans will now be able to watch the film in cinemas as an extended cut featuring four unseen performances. Recorded as the UK slowly emerged from lockdown and conceived as a reaction to the confinement and isolation of the preceding months, IDIOT PRAYER is a souvenir from a strange and precarious moment in history. The performance was filmed by award-winning Cinematographer Robbie Ryan (THE FAVOURITE, MARRIAGE STORY) in Alexandra Palace’s stunning West Hall. [More Info]
