HELP SUPPORT THE TRIPLEX!

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.

Q&A Wed 6/3 at 8:00pm ET with director Gabriela Cowperthwaite. Charity: GiveDirectly’s COVID relief fund

Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000 pound orcas, or killer whales, soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet, in our contemporary lore this mighty black and white mammal is like a two-faced Janusbeloved as a majestic, friendly giant yet infamous for its capacity to kill viciously. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, whounlike any orca in the wildhas taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what exactly went wrong Shocking, never before seen footage and riveting interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orcas extraordinary nature, the species cruel treatment in captivity over the last four decades and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.
