Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it’s a little more complicated: he’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Riverdale, The Flash, Supergirl), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

Discover Arts: Hitler Vs. Picasso
Sunday, April 22nd at 1:00PM & Monday, April 23rd at 4:30PM
In 1937 the Nazi regime held two exhibitions in Munich: one to stigmatize “degenerate art,” and one, personally curated by Hitler, to glorify “classic art.” Narrated by Toni Servillo (star of Oscar® winner The Great Beauty), Hitler vs Picasso is an incredible journey through five exhibitions, displaying masterpieces by Botticelli, Klee, Matisse, Monet, Chagall, Renoir, and Gauguin. Linked to each exhibition are moving stories of those who witnessed the systematic destruction and looting of the day – from the Bernheimer family, who were forced to barter their freedom, to “Hitler’s dealer,” Cornelius Gurlitt, known to have hidden away some of the most priceless art treasures of the century. Revealing the Nazi obsession with art, Hitler vs Picasso offers viewers a rare look at condemned works that have finally come to light.
