This Week

This week, Jun 23, 24, 25, 28 at 7:30pm, we show Paris Can Wait (a.k.a. Bonjour Anne).

Rating: PG for some coarse language and smoking.

Comedy. The wife (Diane Lane) of a successful movie producer (Alec Baldwin) takes a car trip from the south of France to Paris with one of her husband's associates (Arnaud Viard). What is supposed to be a short car ride quickly devolves into a leisurely trip as Jacques can't resist taking any opportunity to stop to sample new food. --Alberta film ratings, Wikipedia

Next week, Jun 30, Jul 1, 2, 5 at 7:30pm, we show The Hero.

Rating: 14A for substance abuse.

Drama. Lee Hayden (Sam Elliott) is an aging Western icon with a golden voice, but his best performances are decades behind him. He spends his days reliving old glories and smoking weed with his former-co-star-turned-dealer, Jeremy (Nick Offerman). He soon strikes up an exciting, contentious relationship with stand-up comic Charlotte (Laura Prepon), and he attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Lucy (Krysten Ritter), all while searching for one final role to cement his legacy. --rottentomatoes.com
