The heartbreaking pain a father feels for his meth-addicted son is the core of this highly-personal film based on the best-selling memoirs from Nic Sheff (Steve Carell) and his son David (Timothee Chalamet). Beautiful Boy chronicles the experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with their beloved son's addiction over many years. As Samantha Incorvaia says, in her review for the Arizona Republic, Even if you can't relate to the drug-addiction plot, most people will be able to relate to a parent's love of a child and a boy's love of his family and the desire to make them proud. Also starring Amy Ryan as Nic's mom, Maura Tierney as his stepmother, and LisaGay Hamilton in a cameo role.

Chalamet is elusively liquid in the role of a child who sabotages his life without ever really being able to express why.

Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare

NR01 hours 39 minutes
Special FREE showing, sponsored by Boothbay Region Health Center

The 2012 documentary looks at a U.S. healthcare system designed to profit on disease not health, reward quantity over quality, and promote high-tech over high-touch. It interweaves dramatic personal stories with the efforts of leaders battling to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the U.S. military. The Boothbay Region Health Center is an example of one organization trying to make changes and innovate at the local level. Come see the movie and talk about how together we can create better and less expensive health care, and better health for ourselves.

A must see….

Winner of two Oscars, the romantic comedy sparkles like diamonds! The names Audrey Hepburn and Holly Golightly have become synonymous since this romantic comedy was translated to the screen from Truman Capote's best-selling novella. Holly is a deliciously eccentric New York City playgirl bent on finding a millionaire husband when she meets her next-door neighbor (George Peppard), a writer who is being “kept” by a wealthy patron (Patricia Neal). Guessing who's the right man for Holly is easy. Seeing just how that romance blossoms is one of the enduring delights of this gem-like treat set to Henry Mancini's Oscar-winning score and the Oscar-winning Mancini-Johnny Mercer song "Moon River."

a completely unbelievable but wholly captivating flight into fancy.

The Grinch (Benedict Cumberbatch) lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh. Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who-a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer-plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos' holiday cheer once and for all?

Family night? It’s a cinch: Take the kids to see The Grinch.
