CHILDREN AGES 12 AND BELOW ADMITTED FREE    

PARENTS BRINGING CHILDREN TO JANE:  READ BELOW

I have received feedback questioning the appropriateness of the film JANE for children's viewing. This question arrises due to a Chimpanzee copulation scene involving multiple male partners. I have advertised the film as FREE TO CHILDREN. The Writer Director of JANE, Brett Morgen, has expressed that he would pay for all children's tickets at the People's Theatre. He is a part time resident of Kukuihaele. Brett expressed to me that he hoped to have as many children as possible see his film. He indicated that Jane Goodall, in her role as UN Ambassador at Large, has been showing this film to audiences around the world, some comprised predominantly of children. I generally do not make judgment of the appropriateness of films. I rely on the judgment of the National Board of Review. They have rated this film as 'PG'. I do feel justified in expressing my personal judgment whether this wonderful film, mostly footage of Jane and the Chimps from National Geographic archives shot in 'the 60's, will effect most children 'for better' or 'for worse'. My judgment is 'for better'. However, you, as parents, must reflect on your own judgment and sensitivities for your decision.

Jane

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall - a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world's most admired conservationists.

 

David Rooney  Hollywood Reporter:  "This is a wondrous and moving account of a remarkable life that puts us right there with Goodall to share directly in her discoveries."

 

Kate Erbland  Indiewire:   ""Jane" isn't just required viewing for fans of Goodall or animal lovers, but anyone seeking a classic in the making."

 

Brian Tallerico  RogerEbert.com:  "One of the best documentaries of the year so far."

 

Brian Lowry   CNN.com:  "Whatever you know about Jane Goodall, there's more to learn from Jane, a gorgeous documentary devoted to the life of the famed primatologist and her life's work with chimpanzees."

Justice League

 

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes--Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash--it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

 

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times: "It's a putting-the-band-together origins movie, executed with great fun and energy."

 

Kenneth Turan  Los Angeles Times:  "It is the key reason Justice League is a seriously satisfying superhero movie, one that, rife with lines like "the stench of your fear is making my soldiers hungry," actually feels like the earnest comic books of our squandered youth."

CONCERT:  JOHNNY NICHOLAS BAND    (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 PM)   DECEMBER 17

 

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.
