I, TONYA (8:00 pm)

THE FLORIDA PROJECT (5:00 pm)
Widely considered a work of genius by film critics, this brilliant story combines adult drama with whimsical child fantasy in a lurid yet charming Florida landscape.

MOLLY’S GAME (8:00 pm)
Based on an improbably true story, the young, attractive Olympic-class skier, Molly Bloom, runs the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game, only to find herself arrested by 17 FBI agents. Her defense lawyer, Charlie Jaffey, is her only ally, despite her many A-list players among Hollywood celebrities, famous athletes and business giants. Little did she know that the Russian mob had also made their way in. Rated R. Run time: 140 min.


If any of these sound appealing, you can get more information and tickets from www.mauiarts.org.
