A testament to the immense complexity of nature, The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land.

 

Leah Greenbladt   Entertainment Weekly:   "A thoughtful and often profoundly moving portrait of the remarkable work involved in producing mindful food - and an eloquent reminder that so much of what we take for granted on our plates is, in its own everyday way, a miracle."

 

Glenn Kenny  New York Times:    "It may... revive your wonder at the weird but ultimately awe-inspiring ways in which humans can help nature do its work."

Bill Goodykoontz  Arizona Republic:  "It looks drop-dead gorgeous and, despite a few storytelling short cuts, it's unexpectedly moving.

 

G. Allen Johnson  San Francisco Chronicle:  "In its modest way, "The Biggest Little Farm" offers hope, and even suggests a way forward."

 

Todd McCarthy Hollywood Reporter:  "Once the film drops its initial idealization of back-to-the-land fantasies in favor of a more realistic assessment of the challenges involved, it becomes genuinely involving and heartening."

 

Janice Page  Boston Globe:  "It's truly food for the soul."

MOVIE:   TOY STORY 4       

 

WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY     AUG  7 & 8     (5 PM)

 

 

Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie's beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as "trash" and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family's road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo's adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they're worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that's the least of their worries.

 

Ann Hornaday  Washington Post:  "As an ode to spunk, ingenuity, teamwork, storytelling and animation artistry, "Toy Story 4" fires on every spirited cylinder."

 

Mick LaSalle  San Francisco Chronicle:  ""Toy Story 4" is genuinely gripping for most of the way, with just a couple of minor dips. But it arrives at a lovely place, with an embrace of life in all its danger and uncertainty."

 

Manohla Dargis  New York Times:  "The animation is striking, the jokes amusing and the story sweet, though this being Pixar, the tale is also melancholic enough that the whole thing feels deeper than it is."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "TS4 is still flying high on visual pow, pinwheeling fun and soulful feeling. And oh that Forky! As voiced by the incomparable Tony Hale, this plastic spork is an animated character for the ages.

 

Matt Zoller Seitz  RogerEbert.com:  "A movie that speaks simultaneously to us, to itself, to all of its predecessors, and to the culture that shaped it, and that it has helped shape.

MOVIE:   SPIDERMAN - FAR FROM HOME      

WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY   AUG.  7 & 8   (7 PM)

 

FRIDAY   AUG 9   (5 PM)

 

Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter's plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "There's no endgame in sight for Spider-Man. As played by Brit wunderkind Tom Holland in a whoosh of boyish enthusiasm and lovesick angst, Spidey is flying higher than ever n a thrill ride that's bursting with laughs and real-deal surprises."

 

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun Times:  ""Spider-Man: Far From Home" is a zesty and sweet and satisfying but not an overly dark slice of entertainment."

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  ""Spider-Man: Far From Home" is a zesty and sweet and satisfying but not an overly dark slice of entertainment."

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)  AUG. 18

 

Come and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event.

Ecstatic Dance is a place to dance “from the inside out” and connect with like-minded people of all ages in a safe and non-judgmental space. Given the large amount of people that may show up to the event and the nature of our free-form movement, for liability purposes this dance is open to anyone aged 13 years or older only.

In its most basic definition it is free-form movement/dance inspired by music, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the grace or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance as if nobody is watching! It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation that develops a direct body-spirit connection. Let your body and inner guide be your teachers.

No dance experience or partner is necessary. It's a perfect outlet for those who think they can't dance and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is also not a social dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and really push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines:
1. Move however you wish.
2. No talking on the dance floor or altar - low whispers off the floor please.
3. No shoes on the dance floor.
4. Water breaks to be taken off the dance floor.
