Taking place in the Horsechestnut Glade, tonight’s film screening is Wim Wenders' 1984 drama Paris, Texas.

When a stranger manages to contact his brother, Walt, Travis is awkwardly reunited with his sibling. Travis has been missing for years, and his presence unsettles Walt and his family, which also includes Travis's own son, Hunter. Soon Travis must confront his wife, Jane, and try to put his life back together. "Sweetly enigmatic." – Slant Magazine "The evolution of a dream." – Filmcritic.com Certificate: 15. Valid ID required.
