Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING MISSOURI has won 5 2017 Golden Globe Awards including BEST DRAMATIC FILM and BEST ACTRESS and BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR

 

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.

 

James Berardinelli  ReelViews:  "Takes the viewer on a dizzying ride through dark comedy, wrenching tragedy, shocking moments, karmic twists, and redemption."

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "This is the best movie I've seen this year."
Joe Morgenstern   Wall Street Journal:  "The movie is, by turns-and sometimes simultaneously-darkly comic, blazingly profane, flat-out hilarious and shockingly violent, not to mention flippant, tender, poetic and profound."

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

In Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "Rian Johnson's middle chapter in the current Star Wars trilogy is the epic you've been looking for. Capped by Mark Hamill in the performance of his career, it points the way ahead to a next generation of skywalkers - and, thrillingly, to a new hope."

 

Manohla Dargis  New York Times:  "It is a satisfying, at times transporting entertainment. Remarkably, it has visual wit and a human touch, no small achievement for a seemingly indestructible machine that revved up 40 years ago and shows no signs of sputtering out (ever)."

 

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun Times:  "Still, this is no mere placeholder of a story. Huge, important things happen to characters secondary and primary. Surprises big and small abound."

CONCERT:  JOHNNY NICHOLAS & HELL BENT   (from Austin)

 

Saturday   January 27  (7 PM)

 

 

 Johnny Nicholas has  spent a lifetime soaking up the flavor of such vibrant music scenes as Chicago, Southwest Louisiana and Texas (which he’s called home now for nearly 40 years). His music is full-spectrum Americana — a rich gumbo of not just blues, but cajun, swing, folk, and barrelhouse rock ’n’ roll. 

 Nicholas’ most satisfyingly eclectic collection of original American roots music yet,  Fresh Air has just been acclaimed by Downbeat magazine by being included in their “Best album releases of 2017 list  It finds him drawing on all of the above and deep into his soul for words of wit, wisdom, and heart. As the esteemed writer Bill Bentley puts it best, “He’s someone who cares about being real, and the hell with everything else … .”

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30-6:30 PM)   JANUARY 21 (DJ: LYRA LOVE)

 

Come and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event, this time by DJ LYRA LOVE.

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.
