‘Computer Chess’

The typically deadpan fourth feature by influential independent filmmaker Andrew Bujalski is a small movie with a cosmic and a comic novel premise: an annual two-day tournament pitting rival computer chess programs shares a hotel space with a “human potential” weekend. The movie is set in the early Eighties and the period feel is enhanced by Bujalski’s droll use of an obsolete video format.

Tickets can be purchased at the box office, or online.
