A Quiet Place

In the modern horror thriller A QUIET PLACE, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.

 

Leah Greenblatt   Entertainment Weekly:  "When A Quiet Place has one finger on the panic button and the other on mute, it's a nervy, terrifying thrill."

 

Peter Travers   Rolling Stone:  "Director-star Krasinski creates a new horror classic about a family that can only stay alive if no one makes a sound. Emily Blunt delivers a tour de force of silent emotion as approaching monsters fry your nerves to a frazzle."

 

James Berardinelli  ReelViews:  "A Quiet Place is a superb exercise in understated terror that puts to shame "horror" films that rely on jump scares and cheap theatrics."

Avengers: Infinity War

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

 

Colin Covert  Minneapolis Star Tribune:  "Roaring through 160 minutes of action, humor, character development, epic evil and moving nobility, it is darker and edgier, yet lighter and more stirring than anything offered in another superhero franchise."

 

Joe Morgenstern  Wall Street Journal:  "What's on screen now, however, is table-setting for events to come, a groaning board of superheroes, a superabundance of undifferentiated superpowers, and an ending that's more exciting than anything that precedes it."

 

Owen Glieberman  Variety:  "If, for decades, the metaphor for propulsive blockbuster filmmaking was the "ride," then watching "Avengers: Infinity War" is like going to a theme park and taking three spins on every ride there."

 

Brian Lowry  CNN.com:  "What "Infinity War" accomplishes, with surprising ease, is complete immersion in this elaborate world, reflecting how deft Marvel has been in assembling it."

Aloha from the Hamakua Youth Center in Honokaa!

Summer is almost here!  We want to thank our wonderful community and let you know how things are coming together for our move into the Historic Okada Building; the sale should close by June 1st, and we’re expecting to start renovations and move in at the end of summer!  We’re so grateful to the community for helping us fundraise for this exciting new phase, MAHALO!!!  Meanwhile, we are ramping up for our regularly scheduled Summer programs and expanding to include teens in light of our new capacity.  However, we’ve found ourselves in another pinch, this has been a big year for us, now we need a new Van!  All our ducks are almost in a row, the future is so bright for our Youth Center, the Summer programs start June 12, but the old van broke beyond repair!  Many of our great summer activities planned can't happen without our vehicle to get the kids  to outdoor places full of culture, learning and laughter.  We know it's last minute but we need to raise $30,000 in less than 30 days to get us where we're going!  Can you help us get there?  click on the link below to our VAN FOR THE FAM Go Fund Me page,  so you can donate today.

The Rider

 

Based on a true story, THE RIDER stars breakout Brady Jandreau as a once rising star of the rodeo circuit warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for new identity and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.

 

Peter Travers   Rolling Stone:  "Filmmaker Chloé Zhao turns the story of real-life bronc rider Brady Jandreau into a gritty, graceful character study. Once The Rider hooks you - and believe me, it will - there's no way you will ever forget it.

 

Joe Morgenstern  Wall Street Journal:  "It's a rare treat to be so affected by-and connected to-a movie hero of so few words, and such vivid ones."

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  ""The Rider" comes as close to a spiritual experience as anything I've encountered in a movie theater this year."

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)   MAY 20

 

Come 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.
