A sorceress (Kim Novak, pictured) and her mind-reading cat are up to no good in this bewitching love story that involves a new neighbor (James Stewart). Buoyed by an amazing supporting cast including Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs and Elsa Lanchester, this delightful classic is wickedly fun. Followed by The Cassandra Cat, a Czech New Wave fantasy about a mysterious, sunglass-wearing cat that brings magic and chaos to a small town.
Beginning March 15

"This final movie version was created as an alternative ending to the NEON GENESIS EVANGELION TV series, remaking the final two episodes from the series. SEELE plans an attack on NERV after failing to create a man-made Third Impact. After reaffirming both her own and her mother’s existence in a state of despair, Asuka returns and begins the counterattack. However, new enemies descend from the heavens. Meanwhile, Shinji witnesses the horrifying wreckage of Asuka’s EVA-02 while piloting EVA-01. Mass production models surround EVA-01 and perform a solemn ceremony. What does it mean to complete a human heart?"
