Our wide-ranging selection will appeal to many interests.

When tickets go on sale, just follow your interests or put yourself in the hands of world-class filmmakers and choose to make new discoveries. Either way, a great entertainment experience is in store for you. Our films include international prize winners and new work by renowned directors and producers. Selected filmmakers will be present for exclusive audience discussions. Many films come to us after a debut at festivals including Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Toronto, Sundance, and Tribeca.

Looking for films on a Jewish theme? We’ve got you covered. We have a stellar selection, from tense WWII dramas of courage and daring to a heart-tugging family comedy and a chronicle of a one-of-a-kind rabbi’s street-level efforts to put compassionate Judaism in action. Bop to the beat of Judeo-pop in an audaciously funny tale of self-discovery or hang on the edge of your seat as the superbly acted historical drama of a kidnapping that resonated around the world unfolds.

Romantic comedies, family dramas and tales of star-crossed love – we’ve got ‘em; a wealth of films directed by women; LGBTQ+ – right here at Sun & Stars. If documentaries are your thing, from human rights to a Hollywood producer’s examination of one of the burning issues of our time or a behind-the-scenes look at two world-renowned artists, we’ve got films that will have you talking long after the lights come up. You’ll want to be where it’s happening.

Mark your calendar – Sun & Stars is coming!
