“One of the best movies about the theater I’ve ever seen.”
—Roger Ebert on Me and Orson Welles

Me and Orson Welles stars Zac Efron as a young actor offered a role in Mercury Theatre’s 1937 antifascist adaptation of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. As the company prepares for the production, he’s quickly swept up in the backstage drama sparked by Welles’s ego and infidelities. With Claire Danes, Ben Chaplin, and Christian McKay as Welles. (113 mins., 35mm) Jack Black plays the title role in Bernie, based on a true story of a beloved if peculiar funeral home employee who charms the residents of a small Texas town, including an ornery, wealthy widow (Shirley MacLaine) with whom he forms a surprisingly close bond. Also with Matthew McConaughey. (99 mins., 35mm)
