After a tornado whisks her away to the magical land of OZ, young Dorothy Gale teams up with a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion to find the mighty Wizard of Oz who can send her home. Along the way, they must avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, who is trying to steal the mysterious magic slippers that once belonged to her evil sister but are now on Dorothy's feet. Dorothy eventually learns just how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it can feel to go home again. 7:00 PM. Adult $14, Student/Senior/Military $13, Child Under 6 $11.Tickets here.

Film

"A Man Called Ove"

December 9 - December 15, 2016

A Man Called Ove (original title in Swedish: En man som heter Ove) is a 2012 novel by Fredrik Backman, a Swedish columnist, blogger and writer. It was published in English in 2013.

Plot: Ove is a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” However, behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.

Language/Subtitles: Swedish & Persian with subtitles.

Showings nightly at 7:30 PM, Saturday Matinee at 1:30 PM and Sunday Matinee at 2:30 PM. Admission: Regular $7.00, Matinees, Seniors over 60, Military, and Students w/ ID $6.00. Members and Wednesdays are $5.00.
