25th Anniversary Nationwide Screening of “Clueless” December 27 & 28

As if! It’s not easy being the most popular and glamorous girl at Beverly Hills High. Especially when you’re the envy of scheming Betties (female babes), persistent Barneys (unattractive guys), and teachers who go postal (freak out) when you turn your homework in late! Yet somehow 15-year-old Cher (Alicia Silverstone) keeps it all together, even finding time for extracurricular projects like finding a love match for her debate class teacher (Wallace Shawn), and giving a dowdy friend (Brittany Murphy) a fashion makeover. But Cher’s tidy world starts to unravel with the sudden appearance of two total Baldwins (hunks): a sexy and stylish new classmate (Justin Walker), and Cher’s square but cute “ex-stepbrother” (Paul Rudd). Now Cher is about to learn that when it comes to love, she’s …well, Clueless.

Nationwide Screening of New Family Movie “TIMECRAFTERS The Treasure of Pirates Cove” December 6, 9, & 12

A pirate crew led by the dashing Geoffrey Pistol launches a daring mutiny, stealing away in the night. Captain Lynch awakes to find his first mate gone along with his precious treasure map and vows to chase the mutineers to the gates of Hades. As Pistol navigates a stolen vessel through a treacherous storm, a strange “Time Machine” mechanism below deck is activated and the ship disappears in a flash of swirling, blue energy. The bewildered crew awakes on the shore of the modern-day seaside town Pirate’s Cove, where they are mistaken for drunken actors. A group of four kids Josh, Brigitte, Chip and Hedge find the pirate’s treasure map and use high-tech gadgetry to decipher the clues on the ancient map while eluding their parents and some unsavory characters lurking in town. When the town’s wacky Mayor announces a plan to ditch the town’s pirate theme in lieu of a new “Dino-World” moniker the kids really need to find the lost treasure and save their town from the Mayor’s devious plans.
