Maiden (2019)

7:30pm to 9:15pm

In 1989, the very idea of a competitive all-female sailboat crew was nearly inconceivable to the manly world of open-ocean yacht racing. 26-year old skipper Tracy Edwards proved the world wrong. This new documentary has all the elements of an epic adventure tale: 50-foot waves, life and death drama, near-mutiny, and thrilling victory, all grounded in a perceptive group portrait of a team of courageous young women pioneering in the sport of long-distance racing and inspiring women in all fields to prove themselves the equal of men. Maiden (2019)

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School (1979)

10:30pm to Midnight
Tampa Theatre

This film is a slanted take on your typical teen comedy, built around two major distinguishing factors: the soundtrack, full of early-ish punk rock and led by the frankly fake-looking presence of the Ramones acting in the actual movie, and the climactic set piece in which a real high school explodes. Settle in for a classic! Rock ‘n’ Roll High School (1979)

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
3pm to 5:30pm

Immediately after the screening, retired Tampa Tribune film critic Bob Ross will lead a short discussion and audience Q&A. The session is included with film admission. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
