Students will learn attacks, escapes, acrobatics, strength and conditioning, music instruments, songs in Brazilian-Portuguese, history and self-confidence. Classes are geared for beginners and taught by Mario “Castanho” Hill, an 11-yr. practitioner of capoeira with United Capoeira Association.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday March 17, 18 & 19 (5pm)

SelmaDrama, Biopic  2hr 7min . SELMA is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernays SELMA tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.

BIRDMAN (R)  - OSCAR WINNER BEST PICTURE, BEST DIRECTOR, BEST SCREENPLAY

Wednesday, Thursday March 18 & 19 (7:15pm)

Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday March 21, 22, 24 & 26 (5pm)

BirdmanDark Comedy, Drama  1hr 59min . BIRDMAN or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) - famous for portraying an iconic superhero - as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.

I'm shocked - shocked, do you hear me?!? - that the film version of E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey is such a dull, decorous affair, about as erotic as an ad for Pottery Barn. Strictly intended for gluttons for punishment-by boredom.

Kingsman: The Secret ServiceMystery, Suspense, Drama, Action.  2hr 8min . Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Caught between straight-up James Bond and the Austin Powers parody version, Kingsman is a high-octane combo of action and comedy that breathes surreal new life into the big-screen spy game where Bond meets Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer.

If you can forgive the failings for at least some of the two-plus-hour running time, "Kingsman" serves up its share of entertaining froth.

This absurdist mashup of spy-movie genres-especially those with gentleman spies-points up the frenzied pace of change with a frenzy of its own, then runs low on comic resources in the process.

 

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS (R)

Friday & Sunday March. 27 & 29 (5pm)

Wednesday, Thursday April 1 & 2  (7:15pm)

What We Do In The ShadowsComedy, Dark Humor, Horror 1hr 24min . WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that's not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series "Flight of the Conchords," co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that's filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. The film also stars Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek, and was produced by Waititi, Chelsea Winstanley and Emanuel Michael.

Hawaii Welcomes Film Premiere of Two New Dalai Lama Films, narrated by actor Harrison Ford, with Director Q&A, from March 23 through March 31, in Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island

The Film Premieres of Dalai Lama Awakening (narrated by Harrison Ford) and Dalai Lama’s Compassion in Action begin with the Hawaiian Premiere on March 23 at the Kahala 8 Consolidated Theatres in Honolulu, and are a part of a 100-city U.S.-Canada “Dalai Lama Double Feature” Film Tour.

The new ‘Dalai Lama Awakening’ film, which just completed a successful 36-city tour of England, Scotland and Ireland, and has enjoyed sold-out cinema screenings in the U.S., is the Director’s “15 year realization of a cinematic dream” and is receiving enthusiastic praise from critics and audiences around the world.

HONOLULU, HI – After having his award-winning films screen over 1,000 times in theaters around the world, win dozens of international awards, and feature such notable figures as H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, Harrison Ford and poet Maya Angelou, Film Director Khashyar Darvich and his two newest documentary films featuring the 14th Dalai Lama, Dalai Lama Awakening (narrated by Harrison Ford) and Dalai Lama’s Compassion in Action (www.DalaiLamaFilm.com), visit Hawaii from Monday, March 23 – Tuesday, March 31 for its Hawaii Film Premiere on the islands of Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island.

“These two new Dalai Lama Documentary Films,” says Director Khashyar Darvich, “explore a rarely seen side of the Dalai Lama, including how he intimately transforms the minds, hearts and actions of the innovative thinkers featured in the film. Audiences during our sold out screenings across the U.S. and Europe have shared that the “Dalai Lama Double Feature” Film Tour offers a unique powerful experience of two Dalai Lama films that are both an ‘inner journey of personal transformation’ as well as a ‘call to action’.”

WILLIE K AND HIS BAND LIVE IN CONCERT

Saturday April 18 (7:30pm)

AC

Lazar Bear presents Maui music superstar Willie K and his band to play one show in Honokaa on April 18, 2015. Willie K played Pahoa’s Akebono Theater in July and brought the house down with his eclectic mix of Hawaiian, rock, blues and reggae. Some of Willie’s hits include “You Ku‘uipo,” “Katchi Katchi Music Makawao,” “Good Morning,” “North Shore Reggae Blues” and “Ho‘okipa Surf Song.”

When the Honolulu Pulse said, “Willie K can play or sing almost anything an American audience might ask for,” that wasn’t hype, it was the literal truth. The Hawaiian phenomenon Willie K is undoubtedly the only artist in the world who can go into an Irish pub in the middle of Maui and play anything from indigenous acoustic Hawaiian music to jazz, reggae, rock, country and even opera—and not only get away with it but leave everyone within earshot slack-jawed in astonishment. No less than Prince is a huge fan, calling Willie K a “funky mother#%@&er,” while another avowed fan is a fellow Hawaiian who goes by the name Barack Obama.

“When you come to the Willie K experience you leave knowing who Willie K really is,” says Willie K himself, and now, with Warehouse Blues - the long-awaited album that returns the Grammy nominee and winner of multiple prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano awards to his roots—those fortunate enough to bask in the glow of that experience will discover another side of this multi-talented singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and all-around riveting entertainer. “Playing the blues makes me happy,” says Willie K, “and everybody loves it when I do.”

"He's an amazing guitar virtuoso, a Hawaiian Jimi Hendrix; he's Gabby Pahinui, Andres Segovia and Eddie Van Halen rolled into one. Willie can mimic seemingly any style, moving easily between screaming Stratocaster, sweet slack key and jazzy almost baroque, acoustic 12-string." - The Honolulu Weekly

Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts 

Oscar Nominated Animated Short Films 2014: Roundly Entertaining by ...Animated (82 min): The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2015: Animated program is chock a block with wonderful animated shorts. For once, every single nominated short is almost undeniably charming, if not outright wonderful. Audiences who live near theaters screening Oscar Nominated Short Films 2015 are in for a treat, but may come away from the theater with mixed impression thanks to a number of mostly unimpressive runners-up, which strive for greatness but fall short for a variety of obvious reasons, but trust us, the good most definitely outweighs the bad.

The shortest of this year’s Oscar-nominated animated shorts, “A Single Life,” offers a zippy, mordantly funny time-travel journey through a woman’s later years. In a similar sense, the other four entries in this solid, inspired roundup all address the unique challenges of life at a particular stage — dealing with the wants and insecurities of childhood in “Me and My Moulton” and “The Dam Keeper,” falling in love and starting a family in “Feast,” and caring for an elderly parent and coping with grief in “The Bigger Picture.” As always, the styles and techniques employed run the visual gamut, from traditional hand-drawn and computer-generated imagery to mixed-media stop-motion. 

Film1_OscarsLive_WEB_04.jpgLive Action (118 Min): The five Oscar-nominated films contending for this year’s best live-action short film remind us, like watching the films’ tidy narratives in succession, that even brief encounters with strangers can net unexpected points of view, connections and outcomes we never thought possible. Mostly international efforts featuring unknown actors from up-and-coming filmmakers in Switzerland, Ireland, France, China, Israel and Great Britain, the nominees include another star turn from Sally Hawkins, nominated last year for her performanc! e in Blue Jasmine and the leading voice of last year’s animated short nominee, Room on the Broom.

Compared to the epic all-American coming-of-age tale that is “Boyhood” — a feat 12 years in the making and three hours in the telling — Oscar’s live-action short film nominees have seldom seemed shorter or smaller, and yet, judged on their own terms, this year’s offerings demonstrate genuine understanding of the form’s potential. Where the best picture category offers its selection of ambitious tapestries, these mini-narratives, which range from 14 to 40 minutes, feel more like quilt squares, intricate in their own right, yet modest and far more self-contained — overall, a quality mix available for consummation on every size of screen imaginable.

Once again, the category represents Oscar’s least American batch of nominees to be found outside the foreign-language race, which further heightens the sense of discovery we get while sampling work from that hails from unknown helmers in countries less often represented at the multiplex.

KMF's Hawaii Songwriting Festival is a celebration of the art & craft of songwriting, with an emphasis on collaboration, education, and music for film and TV. Songwriters of all levels from all walks of life come together to collaborate and network with each other and music professionals from Hawaii, the mainland, and beyond! Through songwriting workshops, seminars, small group sessions, panels, one-on-one meetings, nightly open mic and more, attendees are invited to connect with, learn from, and be inspired by an experienced staff of professional songwriters, producers, musicians, film and TV music supervisors, production library owners, music publishers, A&R executives, and music business consultants. It is unique from other music conferences because its small size and the relaxed island atmosphere create an intimate experience where amateurs, professionals, and everyone in between can develop meaningful relationships through the one thing that us all: music! ed! btest

JUPITER ASCENDING (PG-13)

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday March 10, 11 & 12 (7pm)
Saturday & Sunday Feb. 14 & 15 (5pm)

Jupiter AscendingAction Adventure, Scifi, Fantasy.  2hr 5min . The Wachowski's (The Matrix) return with a new scifi space opera. From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, "Jupiter Ascending" tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along-her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

The universe that the writers-directors have created is so numbingly complex that keeping track of what is going on can cause headaches.
