We here at the Triplex Cinema have been looking for ways to continue to deliver quality movies to you, our loyal supporters, during this challenging time.
While we cannot project any movies here at the theater, there are some alternatives evolving in order to allow you to see some quality films streamed by the distributor themselves. So far we've been able to team with a couple of participating distributors and using our links to stream their content helps us to remain viable.
A few years from now... Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants (among them Sônia Braga) notice that their village has literally vanished from online maps and a UFO-shaped drone is seen flying overhead. There are forces that want to expel them from their homes, and soon, in a genre-bending twist, a band of armed mercenaries led by Udo Kier arrive in town picking off the inhabitants one by one. A fierce confrontation takes place when the townspeople turn the tables on the villainous outsiders, banding together by any means necessary to protect and maintain their remote community. The mercenaries just may have met their match in the fed-up, resourceful denizens of little Bacurau.
Gabriele d'Annunzio's passionate novel is brought to life in the final masterpiece from acclaimed director Luchino Visconti. In late-nineteenth century Italy, Tullio (Giancarlo Giannini), an insatiable aristocrat, grows bored with his timid wife Giuliana (Laura Antonelli) and neglects her for his mistress, the wealthy widow Countess Teresa Raffo (Jennifer O'Neill).
Newly restored, L'INNOCENTE is a "luscious stab to the heart of the aristocracy" (Los Angeles Times) that is "among the most beautiful [and] disciplined films" Visconti ever made and a "fitting coda to [his] career" (The New York Times).

Her terrified father, Martin Martin, asks Rose to help save his daughter. Rose has to overcome the fear of her supernatural gift and work with Martin to save the girl, get the guy and be home in time for a light snack... maybe a yogurt or something.
Magnolia is also offering a darkly comedic Neo-Noir from Romania entitled THE WHISTLERS. Genre-bending to say the least!

Embarking with the beautiful Gilda on a high-stakes heist, both will have to navigate the twists and turns of corruption, treachery and deception. A trip to the Canary Islands to learn a secret whistling language might just be what they need to pull it off. - Magnolia Pictures
