DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION
The true story of Pfc. Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield), who won the Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms during WWII on religious grounds. Doss was drafted and ostracized by fellow soldiers for his pacifist stance but went on to earn respect and adoration for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life -- without firing a shot -- to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa.

Q: When does the singer start and when does the movie start and when do I need to be there?
A: The show, which starts with Connie Evingson performing at either 2:00pm or 7:00pm with the movie following immediately after her performance. So you need to be here at the ABSOLUTE LATEST by 2:00pm or 7:00pm because that is when the show officially starts and we do not seat after that.

A: The organist will start playing a half hour before the start of the show.

A: Our doors open an hour and 15 minutes before the start of the shows and we encourage you to arrive early so you can get seated and have plenty of time to get refreshments and relax before the show. We have a pianist playing the lobby piano at 1:00pm and 6:00pm and the Organist starts to perform at 1:30pm and 6:30pm, so there is plenty to keep your and your guests entertained before the show starts.
Q: Is the seating reserved seating?
A: All the seating for these performances is not assigned and is general seating, so the earlier you arrive the better selection of seats you will have, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A LARGE GROUP. Your advance ticket purchase guarantees you a seat at the performance, but with a sold out show there may be a chance, especially if you arrive late, that you may not be able to sit with your guests, so arrive early as refunds are not given if you cannot sit together.
Q: Something has come up and now we are unable to attend, can we get a refund.
A: Refunds are not given on advance ticket sales.
After the rousing success of our Deanna Durbin series in 2012, we've been eager to bring back the girl who saved Universal Pictures from sure bankruptcy, and captured America's heart in the process. So this holiday season, we're having a Sunday double feature, two of Durbin's best and most charming films, for one price, both on 35mm!
The "sugar" is 1943's His Butler's Sister, a lovely screwball comedy in which the golden-voiced Durbin comes to New York City looking to become an opera star. There she meets her half-brother (Pat O'Brien) who is trying to hide the fact that he's not wealthy, but a butler... to a famous opera star!
The "spice" is Lady on a Train, the classic Christmas film noir from 1945. Durbin plays Nicki Collins, who witnesses a murder while staring absentmindedly out the train window. When the police fail to believe her, she turns to a famous crime novelist to help solve the mystery. These are very rare prints, so don't miss this very special double-feature!
