Upcoming Film Friday Events

Film Friday - Shut Up & Sing

Friday, September 05, 2014 6:00 PM


6 pm - Special LIVE Music performance before the film.

7 pm - Shut Up & Sing 

(2006) Rated R, 93 minutes. Between 1998 and 2002, it seemed the Dixie Chicks could do no wrong. Their first major-label album, Wide Open Spaces, was a smash hit, selling 12 million copies. Their concert tours were consistent sellouts, making them the most commercially successful female group in the history of the recording industry. Though ostensibly an intimate look at the Dixie Chicks after a politically controversial remark in 2003, the film achieves broader relevance by exploring how media, politics, and celebrities intertwine. 


Pricing: $5 General Admission, $3 Member Admission

Seating is limited; reservations are recommended. For more information and reservations, please contact at 941-746-4131, ext. 0.

Film Friday - End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones

Friday, September 12, 2014 6:00 PM

6 pm - Special LIVE Music performance before the film.

7 pm - End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones 

(2003) Not Rated (contains adult content), 110 minutes. In 1974 the New York City music scene was shocked into consciousness by a band of misfits from Queens called the Ramones. Playing in seedy Bowery bar to a small group of fellow struggling musicians, the band struck a chord of disharmony that rocked the foundation of the '70s music scene. 

Music Performance by Tony Tyler Band.

Pricing: $5 General Admission, $3 Member Admission

Seating is limited; reservations are recommended. For more information and reservations, please contact at 941-746-4131, ext. 0.

Friday, September 19, 2014 6:00 PM

6 pm - Special LIVE Music performance before the film.

7 pm - Thelonious Monk: Straight, No Chaser 

(1988) Rated PG-13, 90 minutes. From his childhood in New York City's San Juan Hill, Thelonious Monk grew up to become one of the most innovative jazz pianists of all time. Monk ushered in the bebop era of the 1940s and influenced such contemporary greats as Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Concert footage and Interviews shed light on the character of the jazz giant.
