“Tar” opens. Click for times. Cast: Cate Blanchett, Noémie Merlant, Nina Hoss.From writer-producer-director Todd Field comes TÁR, starring Cate Blanchett as Lydia Tár, the groundbreaking conductor of a major German Orchestra. We meet Tár at the height of her career, as she’s preparing both a book launch and much-anticipated live performance of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. Over the ensuing weeks her life begins to unravel in a singularly modern way. The result is a searing examination of power, and its impact and durability in today’s society.

“Triangle of Sadness”opens. Click for times. In Ruben Östlund’s wickedly funny Palme d’Or winner, social hierarchy is turned upside down, revealing the tawdry relationship between power and beauty. Celebrity model couple, Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean), are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich, helmed by an unhinged boat captain (Woody Harrelson). What first appeared instagrammable ends catastrophically, leaving the survivors stranded on a desert island and fighting for survival.

At the New Deal Cafe

Professor GoldsteinIn the Professor’s own words- I love pop punk. I love country. I love that every indie band is now trying to be their own take on Weezer and I’d love to find my niche in the Weezer-core genre. Whether it’s a nasally, stream-of-conscious screechfest of a song or a carefully crafted ballad that subtly describes how Dinosaur documentaries shaped my childhood, I’ll find a way to get it in people’s ears and make them excited and share that excitement with them! (6 to 8pm)
