With secretive smiles and deliberate speech and movement Phillip Seymour Hoffman evolves into a compelling charlatan in The Master. With secretive smiles and deliberate speech and movement Phillip Seymour Hoffman evolves into a compelling charlatan in The Master.

The glaring pomp and circumstance of Superbowl Sunday was saddened this year by the untimely death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. As an actor, Hoffman was unparalleled at imbuing his characters with humanity. He rendered misfits relatable, cretins compelling, and gifted artists attainable, and his passing left a void in the world of filmmaking. In tribute to Hoffman, the Packard Campus Theater will show three of his critically acclaimed films this week. The trio of screenings begins with The Master, followed by Capote, and Boogie Nights.

Thursday-Saturday 3/27-29. Free, 7:30pm. 17-plus. Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater, 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper. (202) 707-5840.
