+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


COWBOYS & ALIENS  (PG13)

Scoff all you want, but in this Summer of same ol', same ol'; someone is at least thinking in an original mode! (albeit a bit of a mash-up, I admit).
But, folks, you got Indiana Jones and James Bond together here!
And what better summer popcorn picture could there be than to have those 2 circa 1870's mean hombres battling outer-space invaders that have bad intentions? Very bad intentions.

So, grab a tub of the best popcorn in the known universe (hint: It ain't corn from the "other guys") , and settle in for the ride, as HARRISON FORD and DANIEL CRAIG deliver the goods on horseback!
-THIS is the movie I've waited all summer to see!!

CRAZY STUPID LOVE (PG13)
It wouldn't be summer without chick flicks, and it wouldn't be the Avon without playing the best of the bunch!
We've always had loyal support for the, er, "romantic comedies", or as the media has labeled "chick flicks".
And what a cast this one has! 
STEVE CARELL, RYAN GOSLING (one of the finest actors of his generation, in my not-so-humble opinion) JULIANNE MOORE (who seems to defy age and remains utterly an uber-babe), MARISSA TOMEI, EMMA STONE (you'll also see her in the upcoming THE HELP), and good ol' KEVIN BACON!!
PLUS, the early reviews are EXCELLENT!!
You've all seen the funny previews for this one, and you can tell from those that this will appeal to a broad spectrum of ages and audiences...
Because, all of us, YES, ALL OF US, have fallen victim at least once (I hope for your sake) to "crazy stupid love".

Its what makes the world go 'round; its how we all got here!

CRAZY STUPID LOVE  (PG13)

HARRY POTTER and the Deathly Hallows---Part 2  (PG13)
And so it ends...
Ten years, and a whole series of great movies (not a clinker in the bunch), and it all comes to this...

There is nothing more that can be said that hasn't already been said ad infinitum (ain't it cool I use Latin phrases sometimes?).

Do you feel sad that after this episode there will be no more HARRY POTTER?

(I know as a theater operator, I will be VERY SAD to see ol' Harry hang up his wand!!)
HARRY POTTER and the Deathly Hallows---Part 2 (PG13)

RANTS, RAVES & RAMBLINGS FROM THE HEAD HONCHO
As we ramp up to Decatur Celebration this year, you'll hear a whole new attitude from me!
Because, we are actually a pretty cool part of Celebration this year!

We'll be hosting the Land of Lincoln Credit Union's short film festival in the main theater. This will be a 90 min. program of submitted 4 minute max films, from local people and others. It's all FREE, and I hope you will stop in and help make it a success!
Come in, cool off, grab some popcorn, or nachos, or hot dogs, and a cold drink (all for lower prices than out at the vendors) and sit a spell to see what some creative people can come up with!
The good thing about the 4 min. maximum time is: If you don't care for one film, just wait a few minutes and another one starts!

AND, of course, it will be business as usual next door in the Avon Twins!

I always said to the previous Celebration administration, they could change me from being Celebration's biggest detractor to one of its most loyal supporters if they'd only find a way to be more inclusive to the local community...

Well, the NEW administration has done just that, and I hope will continue to find ways to weave local talent and businesses into the Celebration fabric.
Come down and CELEBRATE a whole new DECATUR CELEBRATION!! AUG. 5th, 6th & 7th!!
+++++++++++++++++++++++
AND...come See Me This Weekend!!
