Movies & More: “How to Train Your Dragon,” Films from "The Hobbit" Collection, and “The Cowboy Way,”
Fallon Theatre Marquee.

This weekend at The Fallon Theatre, we have two fantastic, fun, free movies. For the young-at-heart, we will be showing the 2010 animated favorite, “How to Train Your Dragon,” at 6 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. Follow the adventures of Hiccup, a hapless young Viking who aspires to hunt dragons but becomes the unlikely friend of a young dragon himself and learns there may be more to the creatures than he had been taught. This movie is rated PG for sequences of intense action, some scary images, and brief, mild language. The runtime is 1 hour and 38 minutes.

Our second movie, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” shows on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. This fantastical tale is based upon the well-loved novel by J.R.R. Tolkien and tells the story of a reluctant Hobbit named Bilbo Baggins who sets out to the Lonely Mountain with a spirited group of dwarves to reclaim their mountain home and the gold within it from the dragon Smaug. The film is rated PG-13 for extended sequences of intense fantasy action, violence, and frightening images. The runtime is 2 hours and 49 minutes.

The Hobbit trilogy will continue at 7 p.m. over the following two weekends with “The Desolation of Smaug” on June 14 and 15, with “The Land Before Time” showing at 6 p.m., and “The Battle of the Five Armies” on June 21 and 22, with “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” at 6 p.m. Plan to join us for the entire epic adventure on the big screen… with popcorn.

On Wednesday, June 26, The De Golyer Bucking Horse and Bull Bash are sponsoring a special event movie at 7 p.m., “The Cowboy Way,” starring Woody Harrelson and Kiefer Sutherland. Two childhood friends who are rodeo cowboys travel from New Mexico to New York City searching for a friend who disappeared while looking for his daughter, who's just been smuggled into the US from Cuba. This sponsored 1994 movie precedes De Golyer’s 10th annual event on June 29. The movie is rated PG-13 for violence, some language, and comic sensuality. The runtime is 1 hour and 42 minutes.

In July, we’ll be hosting Acid Box, the Fallon-based, hard-rock-heavy-metal-punk-fusion-with-a-blues-influence band… and they’re loud. Check them out on June 20 at 7 p.m. The cover charge is $10.
