Academy Awards Film Festival - Week 2

Join us throughout February for our 2nd Annual Academy Awards Film Festival. We've chosen an array of classic films, including Westerns, dramas, musicals and comedies, each of which won one or more major Academy Award (Best Picture, Best Actor/Actress, Best Director). We're also trying out a new day/time for movies: Tuesday afternoon matinees. If this day/time is successful we will continue it throughout the year as a venue for classic movies!
