The Lobster (2015)
Film Length: 1h 58min
This Film is Rated: R
In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
Staring: Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz and Jessica Barden
The Lobster is Lanthimos’s first English-language film — Kinetta, Dogtooth, and Alps were all in his native Greek — but no aspect of his sensibility has been lost in translation. Rather, everything that made his prior works so distinctive and alarmingly entertaining is even more fully realized here: This isn’t a sterile dystopia, but the clearest expression yet of the ascendant filmmaker’s outré worldview. – Michael Nordin, The Village Voice
Friday July 8, 2016 at 7:30 pm – 7:30 PM
Family Dinner Improv Show (Hartley/Vey Studio Theatre)

Hang out with Baton Rouge’s premier comedy troupe in our Hartley/Vey Studio Theatre for some live Improv Games. We have no idea what to expect, but there is only one way to find out.

Sunday July 10, 2016 – 2:00 pm
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
“Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” is the movie this decidedly quirky filmmaker was fated to make. Part avant-garde art film, part amusing but morbid fairy tale, it is a delightfully ghoulish holiday musical that displays more inventiveness in its brief 75 minutes than some studios can manage in an entire year.” – Kenneth Turan

Friday July 22 5:30 & 7:30pm

Edwin McCain Acoustic Trio
with special guest Luke Wade from 2014’s The Voice Season
Sponsored by Long Law Firm
Over a million Dr. Phil viewers voted “I’ll Be” as the best wedding song ever written, VH1 calls it one of the “Greatest Love Songs of All Time”, it has received over 17 million plays on myspace alone. Even Justin Beiber posted his version on YouTube (he’ll still sing it during a concert now and again). The New York Times dubs Edwin the “great American romantic,” and his fans do certainly agree but it’s the FUN that brings them back to his concerts every single time he comes through town.
