  • Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys
    Saturday, December 12, 2015 - 3:30pm

    "Plastic Galaxy" (2014) is a documentary about everyone's favorite toy line. Featuring interviews with former Kenner designers, experts, authors, and of course collectors, the film explores the history and pop-cultural influence of the action figures, ships, and play sets. It looks at where they came from, how they were made, why they were so popular, and how they'd go on to transform the world of toy manufacturing and movie making forever!

  • Saturday First Run Feature - A Walk in the Woods
    Saturday, December 12, 2015 - 7:30pm

    In this new comedy-adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Robert Redford), instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife (Emma Thompson), and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail - 2,200 miles of America’s most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine. The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to be accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek - his long lost and former friend Katz (Nick Nolte), a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer who, after a lifetime of relying on his charm and wits to keep one step ahead of the law – sees the trip as a way to sneak out of paying some debts and sneak into one last adventure before it’s too late. The trouble is, the two have a completely different definition of the word, “adventure”. Now they're about to find out that when you push yourself to the edge, the real fun begins.
