|12/26/2014||RBFS Monthly Screenings series presents |
For December’s Monthly Screening, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society will present the
thought-provoking thriller “Omar”, a film by Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad. The screening will be held at 7:00 pm on Friday, December 26, in the upstairs screening room at the Movies at Midway. Doors at Midway open at 6:30 pm.
Omar is a baker who routinely climbs back and forth over the towering Israeli security wall to visit his girlfriend, Nadia. After being routinely harassed by Israeli police, Omar and his two childhood friends shoot an Israeli soldier and Omar is arrested. He is recruited as an informant and he soon begins a dangerous game with his Israeli handler. Can he really betray his cause and exactly who can he trust? This is a quick paced drama, a tender love story, and a poignant tragedy but mostly its a film about betrayal, trust, and the moral dilemmas facing those on the frontlines of a seemingly endless conflict. Is Omar a freedom fighter or a terrorist – you decide.
“Omar” was an official selection of the Cannes Film Festival, the New York Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival. It was an Academy Award ® nominee for Best Foreign Language Film and was screened at the United Nations. “Filmmaker Magazine’s” Howard Feinstein says, “The unpredictable climax to this cat-and-mouse political thriller is pure genius.”
[Palestine, 2013, Runtime: 96 min, Not Rated, Arabic with English subtitles]
Admission for Monthly Screenings is $4 for Rehoboth Beach Film Society members (current membership card must be presented), and $6 for future members. Tickets will be sold at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.

|12/13/2014||RBFS Met Opera Live in HD series presents |
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and the Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation are proud to present The Metropolitan Opera’s live broadcast of Wagner’s “Die Meistersinger Von Nürnberg” on Saturday, December 13 at 12:00 pm at the Cape Henlopen High School Theater.
Music director James Levine returns to one of his signature Wagner works about a group of Renaissance “master singers” whose song contest unites a city. Back at the Met for the first time in eight years, this epic comedy headlines Johan Reuter as Hans Sachs, who triumphed in last season’s “Die Frau ohne Schatten,” along with Johan Botha reprising his indomitable Walther. The elegant Annette Dasch as Eva rounds out the international cast in this heartwarming celebration of the power of music and art. [2014, German, Runtime: 6 hrs, Sung in German with subtitles in English]
In addition to the opera performance, the HD series features Met opera stars conducting live interviews with cast and/or various production crew members while showing behind-the-scene workings.

|12/10/2014||RBFS Read A Movie series presents |
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and the Rehoboth Beach Public Library invite film and/or literary enthusiasts to a screening of “Away From Her” on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 beginning at 4:00 pm in the upstairs community room at the Rehoboth Beach Public Library. This film is based on Alice Monro’s 1999 short story, “The Bear Came Over the Mountain.” The screening is part of the monthly “Read a Movie” series in which members read a little-known short story in advance of the screening, then gather to watch the film and share their thoughts about how well—or not so well—the story was expanded to the big screen.
Fiona and Grant (Julie Christie and Gordon Pinsent) have been married for almost 50 years, most of them happy ones. We see their everyday commitment to each other broken only by a few references to the past, giving us the sense that their marriage hasn’t always been perfect. Their easy retirement is shattered by Fiona’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis and when she becomes a risk to herself, she checks into a nearby nursing home. Now Grant must not only cope with his loneliness but the fact that Fiona no longer remembers him and has transferred her affections to another nursing home patient.
This film debuted at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival and played in the Premier category at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Says “New York Times” film critic A.O. Scott, “I can't remember the last time the movies yielded up a love story so painful, so tender and so true.” [Canada, 2006, Runtime: 110 min, Rated: PG-13]

|12/03/2014||RBFS presents |
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society, Lewes Public Library and Movies at Midway present “Ilo Ilo” as December’s film for the Around the World series on Wednesday, December 3, at 6:30 pm in the upstairs screening room at Movies at Midway. The Around the World film series presents critically acclaimed, international independent films. The generous sponsorship of Movies at Midway allows the screenings to be free and open to the public.
A coming-of-age film, “Ilo Ilo” is set in Singapore during the 1997 financial crisis. It chronicles the day-to-day drama of the Lim family - troublesome grade-schooler Jiale and his overstressed parents, Heck and Leng. Comfortably middleclass with another baby on the way, they hire Teresa, a Filipino immigrant, as a live-in maid and nanny. An outsider in both the family and Singapore, Teresa struggles to manage Jiale and find her footing in a new community. The two eventually form a unique bond, but just as Teresa becomes a part of the family, circumstances in an uncertain economy will challenge the new normal yet again.
This Asian drama from first-time filmmaker Anthony Chen won the Camera d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Says Oscar-winning director Ang Lee,
