THE RITZ CINEMA SOCIETY 

Founded to encourage the study, appreciation and utilization of the cinema arts, the Ritz Cinema Society will host a series of film screenings for educational and aesthetic reasons rather than for commercial profit.

The 2018-2019 Season

 

"The Blood is at the Doorstep"

Feb. 15, 2019

After Dontre Hamilton, a black, unarmed man diagnosed with schizophrenia, was shot 14 times and killed by police in Milwaukee, his family embarks on a quest for answers, justice, and reform as the investigation unfolds.


Filmed over the course of three years in the direct aftermath of Dontre's death, this intimate vérité documentary follows his family as they channel their grief into community organizing in an attempt to reset the narrative. Offering a painfully realistic glimpse inside a movement born out of tragedy in what the Hollywood Reporter calls "a clear-eyed film that finds hope within terrible circumstances, and strength within heartbreak."

"Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury"

March 22, 2019

"Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury" follows the path of Luxury, a band who, on the cusp of success suffered a devastating wreck. In the intervening years, they continue to make records and three members of the band become Eastern Orthodox priests. Through interviews and archival footage, Parallel Love tells the gripping and poignant story of Luxury and documents the making of a new record, now as priests.

"The Pushouts"

April 26, 2019

‘I was in prison before I was even born,’ so begins the story of Dr. Victor Rios who, by 15, was a high school dropout and gang member with multiple felony convictions and a death wish. When a teacher’s quiet persistence, a mentor’s moral conviction and his best friend’s murder converge, Rio’s path takes an unexpected turn. Through Rio’s personal lens and its interplay with the stories of the young people at YO!Watts, The Pushouts, interrogates crucial questions of race, class and power. And the promise and perils of education at a particularly urgent time.
