Llewyn Davis is at a crossroads.

Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles – some of them of his own making.

Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the basket houses of the village to an empty Chicago club – on an odyssey to audition for music mogul Bud Grossman – and back again.

At the Art House Cinema, you can catch the film "Saving Mr. Banks".

When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise-one that he did not realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine.

Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation, but is unmoved by Disney’s pull-all-the-stops out pitch.

It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

The film is rated PG-13 and runs for 2 hours. It is showing in Theatre 541 and times are as follows:

Friday, January 10 @ 4:00, 6:30, 9:00 pm
