Before You Know It at Gables Cinema
Hannah Pearl Utt writes, directs and stars in her feature debut as Rachel, a stage manager who lives in an apartment above the struggling Greenwich Village theater she runs with her family. Also crammed into the brownstone are her has-been playwright father (Mandy Patinkin), her off-kilter actress sister (co-writer Jen Tullock) and a deadpan preteen niece. The levelheaded Rachel is the glue holding things together. In the wake of a sudden tragedy, she and her sister learn their presumed-deceased mother is actually alive and thriving as a soap opera star. http://www.gablescinema.org

Tuesday – Sabrina (Audrey Hepburn) – 65th Anniversary
The awkward Sabrina (Audrey Hepburn) leaves home for a year in Paris, where she turns into a sophisticated, charming young woman. Upon returning home, she’s merely a chauffeur’s daughter — until one of the brothers her father works for takes notice. Of course, the handsome playboy brother (William Holden) is more fun, but could the serious, older sibling (Humphrey Bogart) be the better match? http://www.gablescinema.com/events/sabrina/
