In partnership with Kino Lorber and their just invented KINO MARQUEE, we are pleased to offer our Roxie audience the chance to see the extraordinary Brazilian film Bacurau. Even as our theaters remain temporarily closed, the cinematic experience continues via Kino Lorber’s new virtual theatrical exhibition initiative, Kino Marquee. This at-home screening purchase will support the Roxie, and help us in our mission to remain a vibrant, community-centric non-profit cinema once this turbulent period is behind us. This offer is for a limited time only.

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.
