Blazing Saddles
The Ultimate Western Spoof
Comedy/Satire | R | 1974 | USA | 95 minutes
A crafty railroad worker becomes the first black sheriff of Rock Ridge, a frontier town about to be destroyed in order to make way for a new railroad. Initially, the people of Rock Ridge harbor a racial bias toward their new leader. However, they warm to him after realizing that Bart and his perpetually drunk gunfighter friend (Gene Wilder) are the only defense against a wave of thugs sent to rid the town of its population.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
Pure Imagination and a Complimentary Candy Buffet!
Fantasy/Comedy | G | 1971 | USA | 89 minutes
The last of five coveted "golden tickets" falls into the hands of Charlie Bucket, a sweet but very poor boy. He and his grandpa then get a tour of the strangest chocolate factory in the world. The owner (Gene Wilder) leads five young winners on a thrilling and often dangerous tour of his factory… “Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple.”


Commemorating African American History Month

Village of Peace
Sunday, February 12, 6:30pm
Documentary | NR | 2014 | USA/Israel | 68 minutes
In 1967, at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, a community of African Americans migrated to Dimona, Israel from Chicago. Approximately 300 people made the original migration, and today, more than 5,000 African-Hebrew Israelites live in Israel. This beautifully shot documentary offers a rare glimpse into this unique community whose culture evolves from an uncommon interpretation of the bible. The founders of the Village recount their epic journey, as the stories of four villagers are woven together to portray a community unlike any other, inspired by ancient scripture, and a determination to live life in its purest form.
Tickets: $8/ $5 members, 65+, under 30
