Dance Party

Tommy Thomsen
& His Western Swing Band

Saturday, February 22, 2020
7:00 pm    Doors open at 6:30pm

Sponsored by Arlene Hanlon; Strong Financial Network; and Carol & Steve Schepper

Featuring Western Swing Hall of Famer, Tommy Thomsen, and a five piece band including steel guitar and fiddle, this lively group celebrates a uniquely American style of dance made famous in the 1940's by Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.

Western Swing is an amalgam of blues, Dixieland, ragtime, big-band swing, country and pop, and Tommy is a devotee. So much so that he is now the guiding force behind the Church of Western Swing in Turkey, Texas, hometown of Bob Wills. Tommy has formed a non-profit organization to support the church and keep this form of music alive and vibrant.

The Big Sleep

Tuesday, February 25, 2020
Shows at 1:00 and 6:00 pm     
        Doors open 30 mins prior
Sponsored by Michael Lorenzini 

This 1946 film noir mystery stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogey plays hardboiled L.A. private eye, Philip Marlowe, who follows a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues and the spoiled rich. Directed by Howard Hawks; screenplay by William Faulkner and Raymond Chandler.

Reviewer Tim Robey of the Daily Telegraph (UK) says “The Big Sleep is the best scripted, best directed, best acted and least comprehensible film noir ever made.” While the plot is a bundle of confusion, the film lives on as a classic with palpable onscreen chemistry between Bogey and Bacall, sinister views of 1940s Los Angeles, and an intelligent, witty script.

Rated PG.   Run time 1 hour 56 minutes.

Five Easy Pieces

Tuesday,  April 14, 2020
Shows at 1:00 and 6:00 pm     
        Doors open 30 mins prior
Sponsored by Mike Bielenberg & Val Schweifler 

This 1970 drama, starring Jack Nicholson and Karen Black, creates a haunting portrait of alienation that features one of Nicholson's greatest performances and is his first leading role.

As an angry, insubordinate smart mouth who works as an oil-rigger, Nicholson finds himself trapped in a toxic relationship with a diner waitress and would-be country singer. When he returns to the family home to see his dying father, we are surprised to learn he’s turned his back on a promising career as a classical pianist. Directed by Bob Rafelson and Dennis Hopper, “Five Easy Pieces” earned four Oscar nominations, for Best Picture, Actor, Supporting Actress and Original Screenplay.

Rated R for adult situations and language.
Run time is 1 hour and 38 minutes.
