When: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. and Wednesdays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Continues through Oct. 19 2014

A powerful new cinematic offering from celebrated Israeli artist Yael Bartana, Inferno centers on a replica of Solomon’s Temple currently being constructed by a Neo-Pentecostal Church in São Paulo, Brazil. In just 18 minutes Inferno implodes traditional concepts of place, time and belief. Bartana combines real events with a “pre-imagining” that is sure to inspire a flood of questions and spark debate around topics such as creation, ritual, memorialization and commercialization. With its rich pageantry, stylized costuming and references to epic Hollywood blockbusters, Inferno has been referred to as a “visual feast.” This is the film’s second U.S. showing.

Price: $12 adults, $10 Seniors (60+) + students (12+), $5 youth (ages 5-11)
