New independent films will open at the Cinema Art Theater on May 27

The Cinema Art Theater at the Rehoboth Beach Film Society, beginning Friday, May 27, will present “Hit the Road,” “Operation Mincemeat,” and “Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen.”

“Hit the Road” is a charming comedy-drama that follows a chaotic and tender family through the unexpected twists and turns of a road trip. A middle-aged couple and their two sons embark on an existential journey through the Iranian countryside. On their journey, they bond with memories of the past while battling fear of the unknown.

“Operation Mincemeat” is an extraordinary drama based on a true story about the heroism of war. In 1943, two British intelligence officers hatch a scheme to deceive the Nazis and alter the course of World War II. The film tells a richly human story of the seldom-seen soldiers who wage a different kind of warfare in shadow and deception.

“Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen” is a riveting documentary that explores the making of “Fiddler on the Roof,” one of the most iconic musicals of the 20th century. Narrated by Oscar nominee Jeff Goldblum, the film captures the humor and drama of director Norman Jewison’s quest to recreate Jewish life in Tsarist Russia and reimagine stage success as a big-screen epic.

Admission is $9 for members and $11.50 for non-members. For screening times and to purchase tickets, visit If seats are available, admission can be purchased at the theater box office from 30 minutes before each screening.
