“Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice” - (Rated PG-13, 1 hour, 33 minutes) - A musical biography of one of the most successful and versatile female singers of the 20th century -- and one of the most successful recording artists of all time. At the height of unprecedented success, Ronstadt, a restless and adventurous artist, turned away from pop music to explore an astonishing variety of musical styles, from American standards to country to classical operetta before circling back to her family roots with traditional Mexican canciones. Withstanding constant pressure from a risk-averse industry, Linda insisted on following her musical instincts. Today Ronstadt has Parkinson's disease and her magnificent singing voice has been silenced. But rather than letting that voice be lost to history, “Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice” tells Linda's story through her own words and music, and by such professional colleagues as Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, and Aaron Neville among many others. Final screenings at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18 and Thursday, Sept. 19

“Downton Abbey” - (Rated PG, 2 hours, 1 minute) -  Much of the action centers around a visit from King George V and Queen Mary. In a rare concession to modern life, the residents of Downtown Abbey appear to have tightened their belts, at least when it comes to staff. "No maid, no nanny and no valet even!" Lord Grantham booms at Lady Edith as she and her husband Bertie arrive for a visit. Fortunately, Lady Mary manages to tempt Carson out of retirement to supervise preparations for the royal visit - and not a moment too soon, because Mrs. Patmore is about to spontaneously combust. What ensues is the scandal, romance, and intrigue that we so loved in the six seasons of this 15 Emmy award-winning series that kept us wanting more! Julian Fellowes continues the enthralling story of the Crawleys, their staff and the future of Downton as it hangs in the balance. The film screens at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20; Saturday, Sept. 21; Monday, Sept. 23 through Thursday, Sept. 26; and at 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22.
