Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving, who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.

Holiday Series

December 11, 2016 - December 24, 2016

We love tradition, but that can mean many different things to many different people. Some families enjoy coming to the Nick every year and watching It’s a Wonderful Life with the kids and grandkids. Other folks want to catch up with friends who are home for the holidays, grab a beer and watch something a little more irreverent. We love being a part of your holiday tradition, wherever you fall within those experiences.

This year we’ll (of course) host screenings of It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street (the original from 1947), and we’ll also have screenings of Scrooged, starring Bill Murray, and Jingle All the Way starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad. We’ll see you in December with tons of popcorn and hot cocoa.

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

A treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement—Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them—the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews. Thirty years later, this footage is illuminated in a mosaic of images, music and narration chronicling one of our nation’s most indelible turning points. Music by Questlove and Om’Mas Keith, and commentary from prominent African- American artists and activists— including Erykah Badu, Harry Belafonte, Talib Kweli, and Melvin Van Peebles — give the historical footage a fresh, contemporary resonance and makes the film an exhilarating, unprecedented account of an American revolution.

Coming Soon • Feb 20

Fire at Sea

Situated some 200 km off Italy's southern coast, Lampedusa has hit world headlines in recent years as the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern migrants hoping to make a new life in Europe. Rosi spent months living on the Mediterranean island, capturing its history, culture and the current everyday reality of its 6,000-strong local population as hundreds of migrants land on its shores on a weekly basis. The resulting documentary focuses on 12-year-old Samuele, a local boy who loves to hunt with his slingshot and spend time on land even though he hails from a culture steeped in the sea.
