Seasons Greetings Everyone!

Hope you're all staying warm and safe this holiday season. After the excitement of the holidays dies down, cozy up in front of the big screen with some new picks from our collection:

The Attack

The Attack (2012) Poster

Starring Ali Suliman, Evgenia Dodena

Amin Jaafari is an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society. He has a loving wife, an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends. But his picture-perfect life is turned upside down when a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem, who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced of her innocence, Amin abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories. 2012, rated R. In Arabic with English subtitles. Drama.

Room 514


Starring Asia Naifeld, Guy Kapulnik, Rafi Kalmar.

Anna, an investigator in the Israeli military, is ordered to interrogate a senior officer who is alleged to have abused an Arab family. Her questioning is greeted with sarcasm by the accused commander, while her colleagues, including her lover, advise her to stop the case. Unfortunately, her idealism against the perceived abuse of power might have far-reaching consequences for everyone involved. If you liked A Few Good Men, you'll like Room 514. 2012, not rated. In Hebrew with English subtitles. Drama.

Vikings - Season 1


Starring Travis Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick, Clive Standen, Jessalyn Gilsig, Gustaf Skarsgard, Nathan O'Toole.

Journey into a thrilling ancient world in this epic new series from The History Channel about history's bravest and most brutally fearsome warriors: the Vikings. Ragnar, a would-be Viking chieftain, longs to fulfill his destiny as an explorer and conqueror, alongside his ambitious brother Rollo and loyal wife Lagertha. But as Ragnar leads daring raids in distant realms across the ocean, treacherous forces in his Norse homeland conspire against him. 2013, rated TV-MA. Action/Adventure.

Enjoy! Happy Holidays!
