Movies & More: “Planet 51” and “The Big Lebowski”

Your Community-Owned & Operated Fallon Theatre
Movies & More:  “Planet 51” and “The Big Lebowski”

Spring is in the air, and we have some great movies for those spring evenings. Remember, they are free thanks to all our sponsors, sustaining members, and volunteers.

So for you this weekend, we have, playing both Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23, at 6 p.m. the 2009 family animated adventure film “Planet 51.”  When astronaut Capt. Chuck Baker lands on Planet 51, he thinks he is the first life form to set foot there. He gets the surprise of his life when he learns that it is inhabited by little green people who live in an idyllic version of 1950s America - complete with a universal fear of alien invasion. Voices provided by Dwayne Johnson, Justin Long, Jessica Biel, and Gary Oldman.

Our second feature each evening, starting at 7 p.m., is the 1998 cult favorite “The Big Lebowski.”  Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski is mistaken for Jeffrey Lebowski, who is The Big Lebowski. Which explains why he's roughed up and his precious rug ruined. In search of recompense, the Dude tracks down his namesake, who offers him a job. His wife has been kidnapped, and he needs a reliable bagman. Aided and hindered by his pals Walter Sobchak, a Vietnam vet, and Donny, master of stupidity. Starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and Julianne Moore.

Mark your calendar this April for some great special events, plus one more at the end of March. On Thursday, March 28, and Friday, March 29, at 7 p.m. is The Living Last Supper on our historic stage, presented to you by Victory Baptist Church and The Fallon Theatre - admission is free. On April 6 at 7 p.m., we have great family stand up comedy when comedian Lee Hardin takes our historic stage. Don't miss this night of fun and laughter. Tickets are only $20 and can be purchased at the door or in advance at www.fallontheatre.com. Then please join us on Saturday, April 13, for Heritage of the West - a day of histories, poetry, music, and stories. It starts at noon, and admission is free. The event features Native American dancers, cowboy poetry, Chautauqua, western songs, Mexicana dance group, old classic country songs, and much more. We will also be premiering a new movie on April 27 - more details on that next week.

Hope to see you at the movies
