THE GREAT DICTATOR
November 1st. 7:00pm
As Mark Twain may or may not have said:
“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”
Given the resurgence of fascism across the globe, and considering the strained and divisive political climate here in the States, The Asheville Film Society has partnered with the Fine Arts Theatre to lighten things up a bit (but not too much) with a special screening of Charles Chaplin’s 1940 masterwork, The Great Dictator. Just in time for midterm elections! Chaplin’s savage satirical vivisection of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime stands as not only the filmmaker’s most overtly political work, but also perhaps his most significant. It could be argued that The Great Dictator is not Chaplin’s funniest film, but it was never intended to be. Instead, Chaplin sought to undermine the man who stole his mustache through some of the most incisive social criticism ever committed to celluloid, and the result is a film that has an almost preternatural resonance to this day. And it is absolutely hilarious — if you can get past the underlying tragedy of the subject matter, that is.
Tickets are $7 and are available at the Fine Arts Theatre box office 30 minutes before the show.
THE DEVIL WE KNOW
November 11th. 1:00pm
Presented by: The Fine Arts Theatre, Blue Spiral 1, and Photo+Sphere.
THE DEVIL WE KNOW is the story of how one synthetic chemical, used to make Teflon products, contaminated a West Virginia community. But new research hints at a much broader problem: nearly all Americans are affected by exposure to non-stick chemicals in food, drinking water, and consumer products. With very little oversight on the chemical industry in this country, we invite you to learn more about the problem and how you can protect yourself and your family.
Q+A SESSION immediately after with the film with award-winning filmmaker and co-director of The Devil We Know, Jeremy Seifert, Andy Myers, Campaign Coordinator with Working Films, and a Representative from Clean Water NC.
RECEPTION for the film and exhibition at 3pm at Blue Spiral 1

FACE OF WINTER
Nov 15 7:00pm
Presented by Asheville Ski Club
Winter is just around the corner, and Warren Miller Entertainment (WME) is ready to kick off the season with its 69th installment ski and snowboard film, Face of Winter, presented by Volkswagen. The late, great Warren Miller built his legacy capturing the essence of winter magic, and today that legacy launches the start of the ski and snowboard season every year. In the 69th feature film, celebrate the man who became known as the face of winter throughout the industry, and the places and people he influenced along the way.
This year, new and veteran athletes come together to pay tribute to the man who started it all, including Jonny Moseley, Marcus Caston, Seth Wescott, Forrest Jillson, Kaylin Richardson, Dash Longe, Anna Segal, Michael “Bird” Shaffer, and featured athletes of the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team, including gold medalist, Jessie Diggins. Watch as they visit some of Warren’s favorite places from Engleberg to Chamonix, British Columbia to Alaska, Chile, Iceland, New Zealand and more.
“The film is for anyone whose life (whether they realize it or not) was impacted by Warren Miller,” says WME Managing Director Andy Hawk. “We are all the face of winter—from the athletes to the audience to the locals in far-off destinations or even at our home mountain. Warren recognized this, and this year’s film celebrates that.”
Tickets are $15, and are available at the Fine Arts Boxoffice or Online Here- Tickets
