See Special Event Section Below!!   


THE JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB (PG13) Ok, ok: I hear that "chick flick" alarm going off with a lot of you guys out there!
But, this all-star film adaptation of a very popular book of the same name, really deserves to be seen by everyone who has a more discerning taste (sounds like the Avon crowd to me!). When a group of people (that's right women and at least one man) get together to read and study the immortal novels of Jane Austen, their lives begin to take on similar qualities. This is a good 'un, folks!

IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH (R) This is the final week for this fine film that I feel will get award nominations this year. Tommy Lee Jones has never been better, and that is saying a whole lot! Charlize Theron continues to show us she is not just a gorgeous woman, but an extremely talented one as well, and Susan Sarandon?? There is one scene alone in this that I think should get her an Oscar nomination! This is not an upbeat or "feel good" movie. Parts of it will shake you to your shoes. It is, however, an important movie that not enough people are seeing. Maybe they are put off by the title, that is explained completely in the film, or maybe they think it is another Bush-bashing anti-war screed (which it really isn't). Whatever it is, it will leave next week, and you will have missed a fine film.

THE HUNTING PARTY (R) Richard Gere stars in this based-on-a-true-story film about some overseas war reporters who decide to go on the hunt for a notorious was criminal. This has elements of comedy and danger, and is from the same guy who brought us THE MATADOR about a year ago, and we all know what a hoot that one was! Cp-starring is Terrence Howard, an actor that is virtually everywhere these days, but doing good work wherever he goes! ENDS THURSDAY!!
