Bliss Cavendar (Ellen Page) lives in small-town Texas and yearns to break free of her mother’s (Marcia Gay Harden) world of beauty pageants and conformity. She sees her chance when she meets the Hurl Scouts, a roller-derby team. She tries out for the team and wins a slot, lying to her parents about her new hobby. Bliss finds friendship and freedom with her teammates, but a conflict between a championship game and the Bluebonnet beauty pageant threatens to spill her secret.
The film also stars director Drew Barrymore, Alia Shawkat, Daniel Stern, Carlo Alban, Landon Pigg, Jimmy Fallon, Kristen Wiig, Zoë Bell, Eve, Andrew Wilson, Juliette Lewis, and Ari Graynor.

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. The good leftovers have been polished off, the relatives have fled, and a month of arguing about “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” stretches ahead of you. You feel the need for…a little payback. Kick off the Christmas season with our Black Friday screening of the original Die Hard, and let the not-yet-bald John McClane remind us of the true meaning of Christmas–high-octane action and smart-ass wisecracks.
Wear an Xmas sweater
Drop the kids at Grandma’s, don your favorite Christmas sweater (ugly, beautiful, who are we to judge?), and come on down for an adult beverage (over 21, of course, so bring I.D.), some popcorn and some hot Willis-on-Rickman action!
Admission is $6.00 all ages

The Dell’Arte Company’s annual holiday show tour returns for its 39th year, ushering in the festive season with “Return to Oz,” an adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s original World of Oz trilogy.
A few years after her first visit, Dorothy returns to Oz to discover that the land she loves is in ruins. She must harness her wits, courage, and the power of imagination to thwart the unstoppable Nome King, who now wears the “red ruby slippers.”
Accompanied by her old friend the Scarecrow and Billina, a sassy chicken, the friends embark on an adventure to save the Tin Man, the Lion and all that is beautiful in Oz…before it is too late. This is a timeless tale of friendship, adventure and personal empowerment.
“Return to Oz” is directed by its Producing Artistic Director Michael Fields and performed by an international cast of performers. It includes our trademark physical performance style as well as original music.

In this Christmas classic, an old man going by the name of Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade. Kringle proves to be such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain’s main store in midtown Manhattan. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and, more importantly, his authenticity.
In addition to our regular fare, Tom & Jerrys and other warm beverages will be available.
Santa hats and holiday sweaters encouraged.
Admission is $6.00 all ages.
