Saturdays with Oscar  | April 21 and 28 at 2 pm

Join us for a free movie as we continue screening the 2018 Oscar "Best Picture" Award  nominees. Coming up:

  • Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri - A fiercely written, stabbingly pleasurable tragicomedy starring a magnificent Frances McDormand - The Guardian
  • The Shape of Water (Best Picture Award winner) - Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, this story of a relationship between a woman and a nameless creature plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon.
