On Saturday, January 7, come watch Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller, “The Birds.” A wealthy San Francisco socialite pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town that takes a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people. The next film, “Some Like It Hot,” will play on Friday, February 3 at 7:30 pm, following an artists’ reception from 5-7 pm honoring local artists from the Lincoln-Woodstock region whose artwork will be on display in the lobby throughout the winter and spring months. “Some Like It Hot” features two male musicians who witness a mob hit and flee the state in an all-female band disguised as women.

“The Big Short,” a 2015 release, will be screened on Saturday, March 4. Four denizens in the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight. Next, join us for the family favorite, “Jumanji,” with the late Robin Williams on Saturday, April 8. When two kids play a magical board game, they release a man trapped for decades and a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game.
