ABOUT THE BOOK:

"A work of wit and heart, A HUNDRED THOUSAND WORLDS is for anyone who craves a smart family saga. Especially one with superheroes. I loved it completely."
- Karen Joy Fowler

A winning debut about a mother and son on a cross-country road trip through the world of comic-cons, for readers who love the literary-meets-genre pleasures of Lev Grossman, Emily St. John Mandel, or Kelly Link.

Valerie Torrey took her son Alex and fled Los Angeles six years ago--leaving both her role on an X-Files-ish TV show and her co-star husband after a spectacular tragedy blew their small family apart. Now Val must reunite 9-year-old Alex with his estranged father, so they set out on a road trip from New York, Val making appearances at comic book conventions along the way.

As they travel west, encountering superheroes, monsters, time travelers, and robots, Val and Alex are drawn into the orbit of the comic-con regulars, from a hapless twenty-something illustrator to a lesbian comics writer to a group of cosplay women who provide a chorus of knowing commentary. For Alex, this world is a magical place where fiction becomes reality, but as they get closer to their destination, he begins to realize that the story his mother is telling him about their journey might have a very different ending than he imagined.

A debut from an exciting new writer that combines winning characters and emotional heft with a deliciously knowing portrait of the alternate universe of fandom, A HUNDRED THOUSAND WORLDS is at heart a tribute to the fierce and complicated love between a mother and son--and to the way the stories we create come to shape us.

Experimental Filmmaker Returns to Ithaca with Lightship 103
Lightship 103Lightship 103: Experimental Films by Alex Cunningham and Anna Kipervaser
Tuesday, July 26 at 7 pm
featuring Q & A w/ filmmakers
BUY TICKETS

Anna Kipervaser and former Ithaca resident Alex Cunningham take their recent short films on the road together in the experimental cinema salon tradition. Showing recent experimental film and video work, Alex and Anna explore intersections between realities, between abstraction and translation, structure and poetry, internal and external.

The air turns a different color, blindingly bright, deafeningly silent. The source: a hollow sun which inscribes the entire landscape, the same landscape we stand on and look down, out, and up from. Auratic thickets thick with bracken and brier are actively peeled away for the reveal. A history of life. Their story of disturbances in the once-set inscriptions.





British Stage on Screen with NTL and GOS
OMTG
This summer, we continue our tradition of live theater events on screen with the launch of a new season of productions from Shakespeare’s Globe and a special season of encore productions from National Theatre Live. Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen provides audiences the opportunity to experience the world's most famous stage as if they were there in person, and NTL is the National Theatre's groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre live from the London stage to cinemas across the UK and around the world. Combined, the two programs give cinema-goers from Ithaca and beyond a chance to see world-class theatre without the pesky intercontinental airfare!

The National Theatre encores begin in July. Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the uproarious One Man, Two Guvnors was a runaway hit both in London’s West End and on Broadway. A raucous farce of mistaken, stolen, and misplaced identities, One Man, Two Guvnors screens at Cinemapolis on Thursday, July 7th at 6:30 pm and again on Saturday, July 9th at 1:30 pm.

Later that month, Dame Helen Mirren returns to the screen in her Tony and Olivier award winning role as Queen Elizabeth II. Written by Peter Morgan and directed by two-time Tony Award® winner and Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Daldry, The Audience will screen on Thursday, July 28th at 6:30 pm and again on Saturday, July 30th at 1:30 pm.

In August, another season of the hugely popular Globe On Screen launches with one of the Bard’s lesser-known works: Measure For Measure. Boasting a superb cast, the play is a wickedly black comedy of secret identities, sexual politics and manipulation. The production features stellar performances from Mariah Gale as Isabella, Dominic Rowan as Duke Vincent and Kurt Egyiawan as Angelo. Measure for Measure screens at Cinemapolis on Sunday, August 28th at 2:00 pm and again Wednesday, August 31st at 7:00 pm.

The NTL encores continue with the production now up for five Tony awards –Arthur Miller’s A View from a Bridge. Featuring an award winning cast led by Mark Strong and direction by visionary Ivo van Hove, this production of Miller’s classic confrontation of the American dream has been called “magnetic, electrifying, and astonishingly bold.” A View from a Bridge returns to Cinemapolis for two screenings: Thursday, September 15th at 6:30 pm and again on Saturday, September 17th at 1:30 pm.

In October, multi Tony and Olivier Award-winning stage and screen star Jonathan Pryce takes the role of enigmatic Shylock alongside his own daughter Phoebe Pryce, playing Jessica, in the Globe on Screen presentation of The Merchant of Venice. This iconic tale of the battle between greed and love, paired with Pryce’s memorable interpretation, makes this a must- see. The Merchant of Venice screens on Sunday, October 9th at 2:00 pm and again at on Wednesday, October 12th at 7:00 pm.

Just in time for Halloween, Danny Boyle’s acclaimed production of Frankenstein returns as part of the National Theater Live encores. Benedict Cumberbatch & Jonny Lee Miller both earned Olivier Awards for their celebrated performances alternating in the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature. Due to unprecedented audience demand, Frankenstein screens again at Cinemapolis on Thursday, October 27th at 6:30 pm (Cumberbatch as Creature) and again on Saturday, October 29th at 1:30 pm (Miller as Creature).

The Globe on Screen season wraps up in November with one of the great history plays. Bursting with action and comedic irony, Simon Godwin’s Richard II features a tour de force performance from Charles Edwards (Downton Abbey, Philomena) in the title role. A production that delves into the meaning of kingship and the rising powers that can destroy it, the rich colors and lavish costumes of this sumptuous historical masterpiece transfer superbly to the big screen. Richard II screens on Sunday, November 6th at 2:00 pm and again at on Wednesday, November 9th at 7:00 pm.

National Theatre Live finishes the season of encores in December with the international smash hit, War Horse. Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage. War Horse screens at Cinemapolis on Thursday, December 8th at 6:30 pm and again on Saturday, December 10th at 1:30 pm.

Tickets for each of these special, high-definition National Theatre Live and Globe on Screen broadcasts are available at the Cinemapolis box office and online at cinemapolis.org. General admission tickets are $22 each, with discounted $18 tickets available for students, seniors and Cinemapolis members.
