Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre will host the 2014 Inaugural Half Season of Cinema Society of Las Vegas making its Las Vegas debut. Las Vegans will soon be able to experience prestige motion pictures by top major and independent studios on a monthly basis from the comfort of a Luxury+ theater. Each showing will feature a pre-show cinema chat with Cinema Society of Las Vegas Director, Andrew Friedenberg, and key members from the film (directors, producers, cast, cameramen, etc. based on availability), along with an open forum for informative discussion following the screening. Season tickets can be purchased at www.cinemasociety.com for $55 and includes admission to all four movies.

Spinning Plates – Jan. 27 (Season Opener)
Spinning Plates is a documentary about three extraordinary restaurants and the incredible people who make them what they are. A cutting-edge restaurant named the seventh-best in the world whose chef must battle a life-threatening obstacle to pursue his passion. A 150-year-old family restaurant still standing only because of the unbreakable bond with its community. A fledgling Mexican restaurant whose owners are risking everything just to survive and provide for their young daughter. Their unforgettable stories of family, legacy, passion and survival come together to reveal how meaningful food can be, and the power it has to connect us to one another.

Marcello, Marcello – Feb. 10
Denis Rabaglia's heartwarming romantic comedy, set on the Italian island of Amatrello in 1956, follows the fortunes of young Marcello, who, in order to win the heart of the lovely Elena (the mayor's daughter, no less) must follow a gift-giving tradition. But what gift to give the mayor in order to date his daughter? In Italian with English Subtitles.

Award Winning Short Film Night – March 10
Shorts are wonderful, because if you hate a short, relax, it’s short. But if you love a short, you remember it forever. The Cinema Society will be showing a collection of shorts that will, we hope, stay with you for a very long time.

Touch of the Light – April 7 (Season Finale)
Taiwan’s Oscar submission from last year, Touch of the Light drama centered on the experiences of a Taiwanese visually impaired piano prodigy. In Mandarin with English Subtitles.
