Our friends in our sister community of PebbleCreek have a program called Cinema Society. It’s a six-month membership subscription (November - April) where they gather in their Renaissance Theater to watch carefully selected films. Not the kind of films that play in the big theaters with car chases, but smaller, art-house style movies. The Director of the program travels in once a month, often with a guest; sometimes an actor from the film, the Director, producers, etc. There is usually a short presentation before the film, then discussion among participants and a Q&A with the guest(s) and the Director of the Society. Their program is sold-out and very popular. Because their season was cut short, and in an effort to try to provide homeowners with some additional entertainment opportunities through their Cinema Society, they are offering all members of their community the chance to experience a virtual theatrical experience featuring the kind of films Cinema Society is known for. And they have extended this opportunity to our Quail Creek community as well! Every new release offered will be available through individual distributors’ websites and streaming services. This gives film lovers the opportunity to open the virtual doors of theaters to screen a new theatrical release in the comfort and safety of their own homes!. You'll be taken to their websites to purchase “tickets” and watch the film. The films offered are not available to view anywhere else. The links will take you to a page for PebbleCreek, but Quail Creek is invited to use this service as well. Shirley From Executive Producer Martin Scorsese, and starring Elizabeth Moss, Cinema Society of PebbleCreek is excited to share the new film, Shirley with Quail Creek. Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naive young couple at their door.

CRESCENDO When a world famous conductor tries to create an Israeli-Palestinian orchestra, it takes all his skill and resources to overcome the discord and get them to play in harmony, rising to a tense and emotional finale. When world-famous conductor Eduard Sporck accepts the job to create an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra, he is quickly drawn into a tempest of sheer unsolvable problems. Having grown up in a state of war, suppression or constant risk of terrorist attacks, the young musicians from both sides are far from able to form a team. Lined up behind the two best violinists – the emancipated Palestinian Layla and the handsome Israeli Ron – they form two parties who deeply mistrust each other, on and off-stage alike. Will Sporck succeed and make the young people forget their hatred, at least for the three weeks until the concert? With the first glimmer of hope, however, the political opponents of the orchestra show them how strong they are… Loosely inspired by Daniel Barenboim’s West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, Academy-Award nominated director Dror Zahavi (“Alexander Penn”, “Everything for my Father”) directs this gripping drama as a constantly growing ‘crescendo,’ raising the tension and conflicts until the last frame. Lead actor Peter Simonischek (“Toni Erdmann”) stars next to a highly convincing selection of up-and-coming actors like Daniel Donskoy (“Victoria”) and Sabrina Amali (“4 Blocks”). A remarkable theatrical movie and contribution to the world-wide efforts towards understanding, humanity and peace. Click here to rent Crescendo. The price for 48-hour streaming period is $12.
