The Clarence Digital Cinema Campaign
We are starting “The Clarence Digital Cinema Campaign” named after the guardian angel in It’s a Wonderful Life. We are looking for community support to help fund the expenses of converting to digital equipment and to help support the diversity of movie programming that our area has enjoyed for the last 35 years.
Clarence will also be providing some unique gifts as a way to say "thank you" for your support.
Set in the competitive world of modern agriculture, At Any Price is a drama that melds timeless themes of fathers and sons, ambition and rebellion, morality and survival. A firm believer in the big-agribusiness mantra "Expand or Die," ambitious Henry Whipple (Dennis Quaid) wants his rebellious son, Dean (Zac Efron), to help expand his family's farming empire. However, Dean has his sights set on becoming a professional race car driver. When a high-stakes investigation into their business unfolds, father and son are pushed into an unexpected crisis that threatens the family's entire livelihood. Also starring Heather Graham, At Any Price is co-written and directed by Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo). (R, 105 mins)
Inspired by a true story, this dramatic comedy follows four vivacious, young and talented Australian Aboriginal girls from a remote mission as they learn about love, friendship, and war when their all-girl group, The Sapphires, entertains the U.S. troops in Vietnam in 1968. Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell), Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy), and Kay (Shari Sebbens) are discovered by Dave (Chris O'Dowd), a good-humored talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm, but a great knowledge of soul music. As their manager, Dave books the sisters their first true gig, giving them their initial taste of stardom by bringing them to Vietnam to sing. Adapted from Tony Briggs' original stage play and directed by Wayne Blair, The Sapphires is a triumphant celebration of self-discovery, family, and music. (PG13, 99 mins)
In 1980 Stanley Kubrick released his classic horror film, The Shining. Over 30 years later, viewers are still struggling to understand its hidden meanings. Loved and hated by equal numbers, the film is considered a genre standard by many loyalists, while other viewers dismiss it as the lazy result of a legendary director working far below his talent level. In between these two poles, however, live the theories of ardent fans who are convinced they have decoded The Shining’s secret messages regarding genocide, government conspiracy, and the nightmare that we call history. Ascher’s Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with the fans and scholars who espouse these theories. Ideas of five devotees of the film with wildly different ideas about its true meaning are braided together in a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of the horror classic. (103 mins)

Presented with the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club
Eco-activist and filmmaker Craig Rosebraugh's hard-hitting documentary is a sophisticated, four-years-in-the-making expose of climate change denial. By following the trail of big money in Washington, the film blows the cover on the activites of the covert funding of right-wing politicians and the campaigns of misinformation orchestrated by the petrol chemical industry and power companies—and willingly embraced by the corporate media. "A single-minded attack ? may just be the feel-good documentary of the year ... kicking keisters and naming names."—Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times. (90mins)
