‘Itzhak’ to open at Cinema Art Theater June 8

June 6, 2018

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society's Cinema Art Theater will present "Itzhak," a documentary about the inspiring life of violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman, opening Friday, June 8.

From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to...Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman's violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life. Alison Chernick's enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. As charming and entrancing as the famous violinist himself, "Itzhak" is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor and above all, love.

Screening times are 4 p.m., Friday, June 8; 7 p.m., Saturday, June 9; 4 p.m., Sunday, June 10; 1 p.m., Monday, June 11; and 4 p.m., Wednesday, June 13. Admission is $8 for members and $11 for nonmembers. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online. If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater starting 30 minutes prior to each screening.
