With show-stopping performances by a star-studded cast, this adaptation of the Broadway hit musical soars with the amazing story of three female singers who learn that anything is possible when you hold on to your dreams. The Dreamettes — statuesque Deena (Beyonce Knowles), daffy Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose) and brassy Effie (Jennifer Hudson) — are a girl group making the talent-show rounds when ambitious manager Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx) spots the act and offers the chance of a lifetime, to be backup singers for a national star (Eddie Murphy).

Based on Truman Capote’s novella, this beloved romantic comedy stars Audrey Hepburn as Holly, a deliciously eccentric Manhattan sophisticate with commitment issues. Determined to marry a Brazilian millionaire, Holly escorts wealthy men, accepting gifts and money but not their affections. Everything changes, however, when she meets her charming new neighbor George Peppard, a writer who is “sponsored” by a wealthy Patricia Neal. (Not Rated)

The Color Purple

Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover and Oprah Winfrey star in director Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep star in this powerful drama, inspired by true events, about the women willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early 20th-century Britain.

Harriet

From her escape from slavery through her transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes, the incredible true story of iconic freedom fighter Harriet Tubman is told. Haunted by memories of those she left behind, Harriet (Cynthia Erivo) ventures back into dangerous territory on a mission to lead others to freedom. With allies like abolitionist William Still (Leslie Odom, Jr.) and the entrepreneurial Marie Buchanon (Janelle Monae), Harriet risks capture and death to guide hundreds to safety as one of the most prominent conductors of the Underground Railroad. Witness the story of a woman who defied impossible odds to change the course of her life and the fate of the nation. (Rated PG-13)

The Goonies

Friday, May 14th at 7:00pm

From the imagination of Steven Spielberg comes this fun-filled adventure about a band of misfit teens who take on the might of a property developer planning to destroy their home to build a country club. When the kids discover an old treasure map in the attic, they follow it into a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship, racing to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys … and a mild-mannered monster with a face only a mother could love. (Rated PG)

Admission is $5.00 per person (plus a ticketing operation fee).
