80’s Throwback Film: Field of Dreams

On the Coastal Eye Care Screen

(1989. US 1 hr. 46 min. Directed by Pjil Alden Robinson. PG.) The Grand continues its 80th birthday year of monthly screenings of beloved eighties movies with a movie that will make you fall in love with baseball all over again- "Field of Dreams." "If you build it, he will come." That's the ethereal message that inspires Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) to construct a baseball diamond in the middle of his cornfield. At first, "he" seems to be the ghost of disgraced ballplayer Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta), who materializes on the ballfield and plays a few games with the awestruck Ray. But as the weeks go by, Ray receives several other messages from a disembodied voice, one of which is "Ease his pain." He realizes that his ballfield has been divinely ordained to give a second chance to people who have sacrificed certain valuable aspects of their lives. One of these folks is Salingeresque writer Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), whom Ray kidnaps and takes to a ball game and then to his farm. Another is Doc Graham (Burt Lancaster), a beloved general practitioner who gave up a burgeoning baseball career in favor of medicine. Will Ray find out the secret of the voice and the ballfield? Find out for only 80 cents a ticket! With Timothy Busfield, Kelly Bishop and Wayne Knight.

As the charm and beauty of their performances shine through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can't quite shake the specter of Laurel and Hardy's past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver's failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other. With John C. Reilly, Steve Coogan and Danny Huston.

First CineGrand Film: On the Coastal Eye Care Screen

Sponsored by First National Wealth Management & First National Bank

Tuesday, 7:30pm, Wednesday, 1:00pm (closed caption)

(2018. US 1 hr, 57 min. Directed by Barry Jenkins. R.) Sponsored by First National Wealth Management and First National Bank. Set in early-1970s Harlem ( and based on the novel by James Baldwin,) the film is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple's unbreakable bond and the African-American family's empowering embrace, as told through the eyes of 19-year-old Tish Rivers (screen newcomer KiKi Layne). A daughter and wife-to-be, Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt, who goes by the nickname Fonny (Stephan James). Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit. Through the unique intimacy and power of cinema, “If Beale Street Could Talk” honors Baldwin's prescient words and imagery, charting the emotional currents navigated in an unforgiving and racially biased world as Oscar-winning filmmaker Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”) poetically crosses time frames to show how love and humanity endure. The film co-stars Regina King who won this year’s Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance.

(2018. US 1 hr, 35 min. Directed by Tom Volf. PG.) Tom Volf's documentary is the first film to tell the life story of the legendary Greek/American opera singer Maria Callas completely in her own words. Told through performances, TV interviews, home movies, family photographs, private letters and unpublished memoirs-nearly all of which have never been shown to the public-the film reveals the essence of an extraordinary woman who rose from humble beginnings in New York City to become a glamorous international superstar and one of the greatest artists of all time. Assembling the material for the film took director Volf four years of painstaking research, which included personal outreach to dozens of Callas's closest friends and associates, who allowed him to share their personal memorabilia in the film. When recordings of Callas's voice aren't available, Joyce DiDonato, one of contemporary opera's biggest stars, reads her words.

(2018. UK/US 1 hr, 41 min. Directed by Julian Schnabel. R.) H&R Block Ellsworth sponsors this riveting portrait of the last days of a genius, featuring a 2019 Oscar-nominated performance from Willem Dafoe. The film is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule, and illness, created some of the world's most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh's (Dafoe, in a performance nominated for this year’s Best Actor Oscar) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented. With Oscar Isaac, Mads Mikkelsen and Mathieu Amalric.

(2018. UK. 1hr, 42min. Directed by Josie Rourke. R.) H&R Block Ellsworth sponsors this British historical epic which was twice nominated for the 2019 Oscars. The film explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan). Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). Each young Queen beholds her "sister" in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history. With David Tennant, Guy Pearce and Adrian Lester.
