The Rehoboth Bach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will screen “Living”, “The Fabelmans” and “RRR” beginning Friday, January 27.

A post-WWII London drama directed by Oliver Hernanus from a screenplay by Kazuo Iahiguro, “Living” is a loose adaptation of the 1952 Japanese film “Ikiri” (To Live). Oscar-nominated for Best Lead Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay, “Living” is the story of an ordinary man, reduced by years of oppressive office routine and a shadowy existence, who discovers the need to transform his dull life into something wonderful. A former civil servant (Bill Nighy) receives a medical diagnosis that prompts him to move to the South Coast and have fun in his final days. He meets a sunny young colleague who seems to have the pep that previously eluded her.

“The Fabelmans” is a beautiful and tender drama based on filmmaker Stephen Spielberg’s true story about the ecstasy of making movies. Nominated for Oscars in several categories including Best Picture and Best Director, “The Fabelmans” won the 2023 Golden Globe Awards for Best Picture and Best Director.

Growing up in post-WWII Arizona, young Sammy Fabelman (Gabriel LaBelle) aspires to become a filmmaker as a teenager, much to the delight of his mother (Michelle Williams). He soon discovers a shocking family secret and explores how the power of cinema can help him see the truth. The film also stars Paul Dano, Judd Hirsch and Seth Rogen.

An action-fantasy film, “RRR” centers on two freedom fighters and their epic journey.

Set in the 1920s and spoken in the Telugu language, “RRR” is a fictionalized tale of two legendary revolutionaries and their journey far from home. Known for its over-the-top action scenes, like runaway tigers and overturned motorcycles, “RRR” chronicles the unlikely friendship of Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (NT Rama Rao Jr.), two Indians from freedom fighters uniting to revolt against the British Raj.

The production of the 2023 Journeys in Art History – Exhibition on Screen film series, “Hopper: An American Love Story,” will screen at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, January 31. Jamie Moore of the Rehoboth Art League will lead a post-film discussion.

“Inu-Oh” is the anime matinee scheduled for 2 p.m. on Sunday, January 29. From visionary director Masaaki Yuasa comes a revisionist rock opera about a 14th century superstar whose dance moves are taking Japan by storm.

Coming from an esteemed family, Inu-oh is afflicted with an ancient curse that left him on the fringes of society. When he meets the blind musician Tomona, a young Biwa priest haunted by his past, Inu-oh discovers a captivating ability to dance. The pair quickly become inseparable business partners and friends as crowds flock to their larger-than-life electric concerts. But when those in power threaten to disband the group, Inu-oh and Tomona must dance and sing to uncover the truth behind their creative gifts.
