You will not want to miss Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland! Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through.

WHITE CHRISTMAS FAQS
Q: I have an MPR or Chinook Book 2 for 1 coupon, can I use these for White Christmas?
A: No, since this is a special event we do not accept any 2 for 1 coupons or other discounts.
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 Maud Hixson 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.
Q: When does the organist start?
A: The organist will start playing 20 minutes before the start of the show.
Q: When do your doors open?
A: Our doors open an hour 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 1:15pm and 6:15pm and the Organist starts to perform at 1:45pm and 6:45pm, 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.
BONUS SCREENING ADDED WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4TH, our Tuesday December 3rd screening is sold out!
Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Colbert Report) return to The Heights with a live guided tour through their latest VHS finds, including the 1988 Miss Junior America Wisconsin pageant, a mysterious tape labeled "bonion sergery," home movies taken at a Canadian hose factory, and a montage of bizarre karaoke videos.
This smoke-stained Christmas card about a depressed hit man prowling New York is for those of you who like their Holidays a bit more on the gritty side. Frankie Bono is in from Cleveland to deliver a hit, and spends his time brooding over past traumas while stalking his prey, and ends up at Christmas gathering that upends his determination. Torn between finally living a life of meagre emotional connection and his commitment to professional violence, Frankie finds himself on the wrong end of everything, a lost man who'll no doubt welcome the New Year on a coroner's slab. Don't miss this rare noir, just in time for the holidays.
