Spirit Untamed (G)

6:30 pm

Lucky Prescott (Isabela Merced) never really knew her late mother, Milagro Navarro (Eiza González, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), a fearless horse-riding stunt performer from Miradero, a small town on the edge of the wide-open frontier. 

Like her mother, Lucky isn’t exactly a fan of rules and restrictions, which has caused her Aunt Cora (Academy Award® winner Julianne Moore) no small amount of worry. Lucky has grown up in an East Coast city under Cora’s watchful eye, but when Lucky presses her own luck with one too many risky escapades, Cora picks up stakes and moves them both back with Lucky’s father, Jim (Oscar® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal), in Miradero. 

Lucky is decidedly unimpressed with the sleepy little town. She has a change of heart when she meets Spirit, a wild Mustang who shares her independent streak …

Mischief (M)
Showing at  6:30 p.m. 

In 1956 love doesn’t come easy for shy Jonathan Bellah. Not without a little help anyway. That’s where his new friend Gene comes in the picture. Gene is rebellious and adored by all the girls. And with a few lessons Gene with teach Jonathan the tricks of the trade. But there are a few things they have to learn on their own, if they are to survive adolescence.

Welcome to a not so innocent time of drive ins and chicken runs, backseat necking and fumbling and of course forbidden love, and the moment in every teen’s life when small town dreams collide with some big time tom foolery and MISCHIEF.

Kelly Preston, Doug McKeon, Catherine Mary Stewart, Jami Gertz and Terry O’Quinn star in this fun and daring coming of age comedy in 50s middle America. Mischief also features a smoking hot soundtrack loaded with period era hits by greats like Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Fats Domino, Gene Vincent, Little Richard and many more. Mischief remains one of the best 50s period comedies ever made.

It’s the weird and wonderful as newly engaged couple Brad and Janet encounter a problem when their car halts in the rain. They both look for contact, only to find themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite. A place to stay is offered, but will Brad and Janet want to remain there?
