Film: Pixar's THE INCREDIBLES, Sun Aug 20, 2 pm (matinee)

Door: $5 members, $6 children and seniors (12 and under, 65+), $7 general. 

Written and directed by Brad Bird, a hometown Corvallis boy.  Produced by Pixar and released by Disney, it was an amazing technical breakthrough for animation and a personal breakthrough for Bird.  It wasn't expected to be a blockbuster, but performed extremely well and garnered tremendous critical acclaim, winning 2 Academy Awards, the Annie Award for best animated feature, and a first for an animated film, the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and a number of music awards. 

A sequel, The Incredibles 2, is scheduled to be released in June 2018.

Film: SPACEBALLS, Sun Aug 20, 7 pm

Door: $5 members, $6 children and seniors (12 and under, 65+), $7 general. 

Parodies mostly Star Wars but also other sci fi films.  Every character name is a pun, but of course it's a Mel Brooks spoof, so it goes without saying.
