"The Selfish Giant"

April 11 - April 17, 2014

THE SELFISH GIANT is a contemporary fable about 13 year old Arbor (Conner Chapman) and his best friend Swifty (Shaun Thomas). Excluded from school and outsiders in their own neighborhood, the two boys meet Kitten (Sean Gilder), a local scrapdealer - the Selfish Giant. They begin collecting scrap metal for him using a horse and cart. Swifty has a natural gift with horses while Arbor emulates Kitten - keen to impress him and make some money. However, Kitten favors Swifty, leaving Arbor feeling hurt and excluded, driving a wedge between the boys. Arbor becomes increasingly greedy and exploitative, becoming more like Kitten. Tensions build, leading to a tragic event, which transforms them all.

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