Sunday Afternoon Movie: “Joe vs. the Volcano”

Image may contain: 2 people, people standing
Join us on Sunday, January 21st at 1 PM for a free screening of “Joe vs. the Volcano.”

This 1990 Romantic Comedy stars Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. This was the first of three movies they made together and Meg Ryan plays multiple characters. It is a surreal romp with much great music in the soundtrack, examining the search for purpose in one’s life and where your decisions can take you. Also features Lloyd Bridges, Abe Vigoda and the always good Ossie Davis, last seen in “Bubba Ho Tep”.

As always, popcorn will be provided.

Join us on Saturday, January 6th at 8 PM for a free screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Be assured this is the classic 1975 version. This offbeat musical stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Meat Loaf, Richard O’brien and a host of others. Costumes are welcome, though shadow play will be VERY limited due to our small space. No water pistols please and no toast to throw.

This is probably best as an adults only night but use your own judgement. As always, free popcorn will be provided and feel free to bring drinks and snacks to enjoy and/or share.

Movie Night

No automatic alt text available.

Join us on Saturday, December 2nd at 8 PM for Common Root’s December Movie Night.

We’ll be showing “It’s a Wonderful Life.” This Holiday Classic stars Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore, plus a host of others. If you’ve never seen this movie or you’ve never seen it with a group, this is your chance. I understand there will be at least a few in attendance that have never experienced this before. (Not sure how that happened.) So, if you want to see Bert and Ernie in 1946 or just find out how the pixies go, come see this movie. Free popcorn will be provided as usual.
