January Film Schedule

• Jan. 7 at 10 a.m. — Without a Clue, starring Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley and Jeffrey Jones; Rated PG; 105 minutes; 1989.

Caine and Kingsley star in this uproarious misadventure as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson with a twist... Watson is the real crime-solving detective and Holmes, nothing more than a drunken two-bit actor hired by Watson to play the role.

• Jan. 7 at 2 p.m.—  The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, starring Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini and Jim Carrey; Rated PG-13; 100 minutes; 2013.

• Jan. 14 at 10 a.m. — Miracle, starring Kurt Russell, Patricia Clarkson and Noah Emmerich; Rated PG; 135 minutes; 2004.

The inspiring true story behind one of the greatest moments in sports history — the 1980 United States ice hockey team's triumphant Olympic victory against the Soviet Union. Kurt Russell gives a brilliant performance as the dynamic and determined coach Herb Brooks, who had an impossible dream — beat the seemingly unbeatable Soviets at their own game.

• Jan. 14 at 2 p.m.—  An Ideal Husband, starring Rupert Everett, Julianne Moore, Jeremy Northam, Cate Blanchett and Minnie Driver; Rated PG-13; 98 minutes; 1999.

An Ideal Husband delves into themes of love, passion, and betrayal among the aristocracy. Sir Robert Chiltern (Northam), a brilliant politician and a perfect gentleman, is the ideal husband for the charming Lady Chiltern (Blanchett). They have a widely envied marriage until charming Mrs. Cheveley (Moore) appears with the intention of revealing a dark secret from Chiltern's past.

• Jan. 21 at 10 a.m. — Mister Roberts, starring Henry Fonda, James Cagney, Jack Lemmon and William Powell; Not Rated; 120 minutes; 1955.

Mister Roberts is aboard a U.S. cargo ship, working in the Pacific during the Second World War. He'd do anything to leave the quiet of the ship to join in the "action." Trouble is the captain of the ship is a bit of a tyrant and isn't willing to sign Roberts' transfer requests. Also on board is Ensign Pulver, who avoids work as best he can, whilst living off the riches of his buying and selling. Roberts and the crew are in constant battle, even over the smallest of disagreements.

• Jan. 21 at 2 p.m.—  Much Ado About Nothing, starring Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Ashley Johnson, Clark Gregg and Nathan Fillion; Rated PG-13; 112 minutes; 2012.

In the wake of an eventful trip abroad, Claudio and Benedick arrive safely back in their hometown of Messina, where Claudio wastes no time declaring his love for Hero. Alas, when clever Benedick learns that his friend has poured his heart out to the daughter of powerful governor Leonato, he chides his old friend relentlessly over the syrupy assertion while engaging Leonato's outspoken niece, Beatrice, in a series of spirited debates. Meanwhile, somewhere amidst all of the pointed insults and playful barbs, something that strangely resembles true love seems to blossom between Benedick and Beatrice.

• Jan. 28 — No movies scheduled due to collection reorganization.

  • Conlee Color HI.jpg Conlee to perform at Palace

    John Conlee is a lot like the songs of which he sings. He lives a domestic life with his wife Gale and three children, Rebecca, Jessica and Johnny. During the past two decades, Conlee has achieved a level of success that he has sustained by simply being himself and by making records that the listening public can relate to. He is a gifted entertainer, but he’s not into the glitz and hype of the entertainment world. He’d rather spend his “off the road” time working on his 32 acre farm outside of Nashville or engaging in his woodworking and gunsmithing hobbies.
