Movies & More This Weekend: Presenting the Will Shamberger Band, “The Boxtrolls,”  and “Quigley Down Under”

Hello, Fallon. Did you know we are a non-profit organization run completely by volunteers? We are, and thanks to all our sustaining members, sponsors, and volunteers, we are able to keep providing you with free movies and great events. If you would like to join us, please visit our website at fallontheatre.com or check us out on Facebook - Save the Fallon Theatre. Hope you will join us in this great cause.

Before we get to movies, let's talk about Friday night's, March 1, live music - coming back to our stage after playing here a few years ago is the Reno-based band Night Rooms, and joining them is the Will Shamberger Band. Great music for your enjoyment. Music starts at 7 p.m., and tickets are $12 at the door. Hope to see you there.

On to movies. Playing at 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday evenings, March 1 and 2, is the 2014 animated comedy fantasy “The Boxtrolls.” Eggs, an orphan, lives with the Boxtrolls - a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who inhabit a cavern beneath the city of Cheesebridge. When villainous Archibald Snatcher hatches a plan to get rid of the pretty harmless beings, Eggs decides to go above ground, where he meets and befriends feisty Winnifred. Together, Eggs and Winnifred devise a daring plan to save the Boxtrolls from extermination. Voices provided by Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, and Isaac Hempstead-Wright.

Also playing Saturday night, at 7 p.m., is the 1990 western adventure “Quigley Down Under.” Matthew Quigley is an American rifleman who travels to the Australian outback to answer a help-wanted ad calling for a sharpshooter. When Quigley meets his employer, Elliot Marston, he's appalled to discover the job involves killing Aboriginal Australians. The two men fight, and when Quigley is knocked out, Marston leaves him and a local crazy woman to die in a remote part of the Outback. They're rescued, however, and plot their revenge. Starring Tom Selleck, Alan Rickman, Laura San Giacomo, and Chris Haywood.

Hope to see you for live music and some great movies.
