THE INVISIBLES OPENING AT THE CINEMA ART THEATER
Starting on February 22, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “The Invisibles”, a testament to the resourcefulness, willpower, and sheer chance that permit us to survive against incredible odds.
Hanni, Cioama, Eugen and Ruth are four ordinary German youths trying to navigate the scarcities and prohibitions of Berlin at the height of World War II. They hailed from different social classes and different neighborhoods, but they shared a single common secret: they were Jews.
Claus Räfle’s gripping docudrama traces the stories of four real-life survivors who learned that sometimes the best place to hide is in plain sight. While moving between cinemas, cafés and safe houses they dodged Gestapo and a dense network of spies and informants, knowing that certain death was just one mistake away. [2018, Germany, Runtime: 110 minutes, Not Rated, in English sub-titles].
Tim Appelo of “AARP Movies for Grownups” writes “An unfamiliar part of a story you thought you knew all about, and a must-see.”
Screening times are 4:00 pm on Friday (Feb 22), 3:00 pm on Sunday (Feb 24), 4:00 pm on Tuesday (Feb 26), 2:00 pm on Wednesday (Feb 27) and 6:30 pm on Thursday (Feb 28). Admission is $8 for members and $11 for future members. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online.
