The Reg Lenna Center for the Arts will show the films Parallel Mothers and Licorice Pizza this week.

In Pedro Almodovar’s Parallel Mothers (Wednesday at 7 pm), two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way. The film is nominated for two Academy Awards including Penelope Cruz for Best Actress. Parallel Mothers is rated R and is 120 minutes long.

Best Picture nominee Licorice Pizza (Saturday at 8 pm) is the story of Alana Kane (Alana Haim) and Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman) growing up, running around and falling in love in the San Fernando Valley, 1973. Written and Directed by Best Director-nominee Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights), the film tracks the navigation of first love. Licorice Pizza is rated R and is 133 minutes long.

Upcoming Movies at The Reg include Peter Dinklage in the movie musical Cyrano showing Wednesday, March 23, at 7 pm, Kenneth Branagh in the Agatha Christie adaptation Death on the Nile showing Saturday, March 26, at 8 pm, a special engagement screening of Gerry filmmaker Travis Carlson’s Mother’s Day showing Saturday, April 2, at 7 pm and Roger Tory Peterson Institute’s presentation of BANFF Mountain Film Festival showing Tuesday, April 5, at 7 pm
