The Town Hall Theatre Is Working Towards A Digital Conversion. . . . .We Need Your Help
order to remain viable movie business The Town Hall Theatre (THT) needs
to make the move for a conversion to a digital projection system. We
have postponed it as long as we could (& saved many 1,000s of
dollars in doing so) but the time has come. One film company has
stopped releasing new movies on film and most others are severely
limiting the number of prints made, so we have to wait longer to get
movies and when we do get them they are sometimes in bad shape.
Our THT is about more than just movies: it is an anchor business for
Quincy and place where the community comes together for performances,
public meetings and where we see our friends and neighbors on stage.
The movie business pays the facility expenses so that all this can
Even at half the cost of what it once was, $70,000 it is a significant
amount of money to raise. It will take much help and generosity to
reach that target. We have had a heart-warming response from the
community with people telling us how important the theatre is to them,
offering great ideas to help and others standing at the ready to write
checks. If you want to help, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations will be gratefully accepted at the THT during movies, at
Plumas Arts or by mail to P.O. Box 600, Quincy, CA 95971. All donations
are fully tax-deductible.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY plays 4 days, FRIDAY to MONDAY: September 26th to 29th
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes this top grossing film of the year which has been reviewed as “a goofy, dazzling often hilarious convergence of inspired nuttiness.” An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy's fate in the balance. The All-star cast includes: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro •

A MOST WANTED MAN plays 4 days, FRIDAY to MONDAY: October 10th to 13th
Hamburg, Germany: 2012. A mysterious, tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in the city’s Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian father’s ill-gotten fortune. Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (William Dafoe) and a young female lawyer (Rachael McAdams) who is determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Phillip Seymour Hoffman in one of his final film roles), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. In an adrenaline laced and heart-rending escalation of tension and collision, it’s not long before he becomes everyone’s most wanted man. A Most Wanted Man, a cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, is also contemporary and deeply human, touching themes in love, rivalry and politics we live with every day.

DOLPHIN TALE 2 plays 4 days, FRIDAY to MONDAY: October 24th to 27th
Dolphin Tale 2 continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery—thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail—made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie Dolphin Tale. It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins’ social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.
• This 107 minute Family Friendly Drama is Rated: PG for some mild thematic elements.
