The Huntsman: Winter's War
Freya the Ice Queen (Emily Blunt) brings her sister Ravenna (Charlize Theron) back to life, and the powerful evil siblings plan to conquer the Enchanted Forest. Only the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and his secret lover Sara (Jessica Chastain) can stop them in this sequel continuing the inventive twist on the Snow White fable.    PG 13
James Berardinelli   ReelViews:  "By cramming far too much material into 114 minutes, The Huntsman: Winter's War feels rushed and incomplete."
Stephen Rea   Philadelphia Inquirer:  "Sampling Tolkien, Disney, and Grimm, The Huntsman: Winter's War lays on the pastiche in slabs, but no one is slouching here."

Captain America: Civil War
Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Joe Morganstern  Wall Street Journal:  "A comic book extravaganza that's enhanced by wit and audacity, not to mention the sort of action that only mountains of money can buy."
Colin Colvert  Minneapolis Tribune:  "The most impressive superpower on display in Captain America: Civil War... is the whole team's ability to give an escapist comic book movie an intelligent sense of connection to life in the modern world"
Peter Travers  Rolling Stone: "Sure, it's too much and way too familiar. But Captain America: Civil War brings the fun, the fierce and the fireworks. Summer, we have liftoff."
MOVIE:   THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE

Friday and Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday   (5  PM)

Friday, Saturday and Sunday  (5 PM)

The Angry Birds Movie
In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we'll finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds--or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it's up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
Peter Travers  Rollling Stone:  "Repackaged way past the time when the game was a peak obsession, this animated joyride is still an irresistible invitation to shake your sillies out."
Guy Lodge   Variety:  "A fast, fizzy and frenetically entertaining extension of the manic gaming franchise that, at its zenith, had children of all ages glued to their smartphone screens."
CONCERT:   XAVIER RUDD
Wednesday,  June 22    
xavierSince the very beginning, Xavier Rudd's ability to connect with people has been his most powerful gift. The more he has toured the world, the more hearts he has touched and the more of the world he has put back into his music. Several of Rudd's songs incorporate socially conscious themes, such as spirituality, humanity, environmentalism and the rights of Aboriginal peoples.
Like Jack Johnson, independent Australian musician Xavier Rudd combines a love of surfing with a love of roots music. Like Ben Harper, he plays Weissenborn lap steel guitars. Utterly unlike both of those musicians, however, he has a unique setup. Rudd is a one-man band who plays surrounded by instruments in a complicated array: typically, he has three didgeridoos placed in front of him on a stand, a guitar on his lap, a stomp box by his habitually bare feet, and an assortment of drums, banjos, harmonicas, bells, and bass guitar near at hand, or near at foot, as the case may be. He takes this setup with him on frequent tours (as well as his surfboards), relying on word of mouth rather than record labels to speak for him. His albums, several of them live recordings, are most often for sale at these sold-out gigs.
MOST RECENTLY ON HIS EUROPEAN TOUR ALL VENUES WERE SOLD OUT.   HIS FOUR SHOW HAWAII TOUR IS FIRST HONOKAA PEOPLE'S THEATRE, THEN THE MAUI ARTS AND CULTURAL CENTER, AND THEN THE HAWAII THEATRE IN HONOLULU, AND THEN AN OUTDOOR AMPHITHEATRE ON KAUAI.  TICKET PRICES NOW ARE $35 BUT THE PROMOTER TOLD ME 2 DAYS AGO THAT WITHIN 2 WEEKS THE PRICE WOULD BE INCREASED.  YOU SHOULD GET TICKETS NOW.

Astronomy Talk: The Remaining 95 Percent: Insights From Gravitational Lensing

Thursday July 28, 2016
07:00 pm - 08:00 pm

Honoka'a People's Theatre

In our standard model of cosmology, only five percent of the mass-energy budget of the Universe is accounted for by particles that have been detected in Earth-based laboratories. The remaining 95 percent, called dark matter and dark energy, has only been detected gravitationally via astronomical observations. Although the abundance of dark matter and dark energy has been measured with great precision, their fundamental nature remains mysterious. In this talk, UCLA astronomer Tommaso Treu will briefly review the history of the discovery of dark matter and dark energy and describe how we can gain new insights by studying the trajectories of photons as they travel across the universe, a phenomenon known as strong gravitational lensing.

 CAPOERIA AGUA DE BEBER
Classes Every Saturday (11am & 12am)

CapoeiraCapoeira is an interactive game of martial arts and acrobatic dance accompanied by live music. Created four centuries ago by African slaves in the country of Brazil, it is believed that capoeira practitioners disguised this dynamic art form as dance and play in order to conceal it’s more lethal martial arts and self defense techniques. Students will learn attacks, escapes, acrobatics, strength and conditioning, music instruments, songs in Brazilian-Portuguese, history and self-confidence. Classes are geared for beginners and taught by Mario “Castanho” Hill, an 11-yr. practitioner of capoeira with United Capoeira Association.
Classes: Saturdays - Kids Capoeira (ages 7-12), 11am -12pm; Teen/Adult Capoeira, 12 -1:30pm.

 ECSTATIC DANCE

Sunday June 19 (4:30-6:30pm$7 at the door suggested donation

aCome and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event by DJ Rajasick.

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.
