Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm


A small fishing village must procure a local doctor to secure a lucrative business contract. When unlikely candidate and big-city doctor Paul Lewis lands in their lap for a trial residence, the townsfolk rally together to charm him into staying.

No Friday showtime; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm


The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night celebrates the 50th anniversary of its premiere at London's Pavilion Theatre. In this wacky comic documentary, the Fab Four travel from Liverpool to London for a TV appearance and tackle the hurdles of hysterical fans, as well as the disappearance of Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney's trouble-prone grandfather. The soundtrack, which ranked number four on Rolling Stone's list of the 25 Greatest Soundtracks of All Time, includes "I Should Have Known Better," "Can't Buy Me Love" and, naturally, "A Hard Day's Night." 

87 minutes; Unrated

Third Person tells three stories of love, passion, trust, and betrayal in a multi-strand story line reminiscent of Paul Haggis's earlier Oscar-winning film Crash. The tales play out in New York, Paris, and Rome-three couples who appear unrelated but share deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, and children lost and found.
