Wernor Herzog's documentary about Antartica, Encounters at the End of the World, begins its run tomorrow (Friday) at 7:30pm. Another critically acclaimed doc, Man on Wire, begins on Sep 12. It tells the story of Phillippe Petit's tightropre walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 1974.

Brideshead Revisited has its last screening tonight (Thursday) at 7:30pm.

This Sunday at 2pm we begin a new month of classic films with Gold Diggers of 1933 – a Busby Berkely extravaganza! The theme for September is Pre-Code Hollywood, the era of Classical Hollywood Cinema before self-imposed censorship became more mandatory than voluntary. Click here to read about Pre-Code Hollywood.

First Friday Fright Night is tomorrow and we're screening Alien. I remember the film's release in the summer of 1979 very clearly, and being so disappointed that I wasn't old enough to see it. So now, nearly 30 years later, I'll get my chance!

Our Children's Series on Saturdays season begins on Sep 27 at 2pm with Laurel & Hardy in Way Out West. We're also showing two L&H shorts — Brats and Hog Wild. And, we're starting an area tent! (That's L&H speak for fan club). Tickets will be $4 per person.

Finally, please note that our ticket prices for films are changing as of Friday. Adult tickets for feature films are now $8 (increased from $7). We've lowered our adult tickets for classic films to $6. Tickets are still $4 for everyone for family films on Saturday afternoons. The senior ticket price of $6 is unchanged.
