UPCOMING SHOWS

August 2018 •  Free Movie! – Won't You Be My Neighbor?  

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Friday, August 31, 2018
Show begins at 7 p.m.

This documentary by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville paints a portrait of the life and work of children's entertainer Fred Rogers, star of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. A former minister, Rogers creatively communicated themes of empathy and acceptance. This emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.

Josh Terry of The Deseret News wrote: “Rogers insists that love is the motivation behind all of his work, and based on the evidence in Neville's film, it's easy to believe him.” Reviewer Dorothy Woodend added “I wasn't expecting to gain any kind of … epiphany from watching Neville's documentary about Mister Rogers, but that's precisely what happened. Life is weird that way."

Rated PG-13 (for some thematic elements and language).

Part of NPC's Free Movie Series • Reasonable-Priced Concessions Available.

September 2018 •  Free Movie! – Incredibles 2  

Incredibles 2

Friday, September 21, 2018
Show begins at 7 p.m.

Everyone's favorite family of superheroes is back, but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet and Dash to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It's a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers.

When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again – which is easier said than done, even when they're all Incredible.

Bob Mondello of NPR's All Things Considered wrote: “I exaggerate not a bit when I say that parents will feel just as empowered while watching Incredibles 2 as any child.”

Rated PG (for some action sequences and brief mild language).

October 2018 •  Free Movie! – Leave No Trace  

Leave No Trace

Friday, October 5, 2018
Show begins at 7 p.m.

Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), have lived off the grid for years in the forests of Portland, Oregon. When their idyllic life is shattered, both are put into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a harrowing journey back to their wild homeland.

This independent film is directed by Debra Granik (Winter's Bone) from a script adapted by Granik and Anne Rosellini. David Sims of The Atlantic writes: “Leave No Trace is one of the best films of 2018 and promises to make a star of McKenzie.” Critic Courtney Howard adds “in a year full of films that explore the precious nature of father-daughter dynamics, Granik's feature is a standout.”

Rated PG (for thematic material throughout).

November 2018 • My Fair Lady Performances

My Fair Lady

When Lerner and Loewe's My Fair Lady opened on Broadway, it collected six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, while the film version took home eight Oscars, including Best Picture.

Based on George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady is that rare musical by which all others are measured. The tale of a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady features one of musical theatre's greatest scores, including: “Wouldn't It Be Loverly?,” “With a Little Bit of Luck,” “The Rain in Spain,” “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “On the Street Where You Live,” “Get Me to the Church on Time,” and “I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face.”

Eliza Doolittle is a young flower seller with an unmistakable Cockney accent which keeps her in the lower rungs of Edwardian society.  When Professor Henry Higgins tries to teach her how to speak like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish.
