“Horizon: An American Saga - Chapter 1” - (R; 3 hours, 1 minute) - Part one of Kevin Costner’s zealous, multi-character Western epic, Horizon: An American Saga explores the lure of the Old West and how it was won—and lost—through the blood, sweat and tears of many. Spanning the four years of the Civil War, from 1861 to 1865, this ambitious cinematic adventure takes audiences on an emotional journey across a country at war with itself, experienced through the lens of families, friends and foes all attempting to discover what it truly means to be the United States of America. Three more screenings: Wednesday, July 10, 2 p.m. (OCAP) & 7 p.m. (regular), Thursday, July 11, 7 p.m.

“Fly Me To the Moon” - (PG13; 2 hours, 12 minutes) -  Sparks fly in all directions as marketing maven Kelly Jones (Scarlett Johansson), brought in to fix NASA's public image, wreaks havoc on Apollo 11 launch director Cole Davis' (Tatum Channing) already difficult task of putting a man on the moon. When the White House deems the mission too important to fail, Jones is directed to stage a fake moon landing as backup, and the countdown truly begins.  Playing at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 12, Saturday, July 13; Monday, July 15; Tuesday, July 16 and Thursday, July 18; at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 14; and Wednesday, July 17 at 2 p.m. (OCAP) & 7 p.m. 

“Songs of the Earth” with a Norwegian brunch! - (NR; 91 minutes) -  Join us for a lovely, meditative immersion into the sights, sounds, tastes, and people of Norway through Margreth Olin’s film Songs of Earth accompanied by a brunch of traditional Norwegian cuisine.Songs of Earth is a majestic symphony for the big screen. The film is an audio-visual composition of the earth’s primordial forces with the camera taking you from inside nature’s smallest components to outside the wild panoramas. The filmmaker’s father (85) is our guide, bringing us through Norway’s most scenic valley where he grew up and where generations have been living alongside nature to survive. The sounds of the earth harmonize together to make music in this breathtaking journey. Executive producers are Wim Wenders and Norway’s cinema treasure Liv UlImann. Norwegian with English subtitles. Sunday, July 14 only! Brunch served at 10:30 a.m., film will begin at 11 a.m. Tickets for the event are $15 (brunch & film) or $12 nonmembers, $8 members (film only), and may be purchased online at or at the door after 10 a.m. 

“The relationship between filmmaker Margreth Olin and her father, Jorgen, has always been linked to nature, and the act of exploring the world on foot. . . . It’s a quietly profound film, one that encourages appreciation of the world through exultant widescreen landscape shots, macro close-ups and textured field recordings of skittering bugs and crunching ice. It also preaches acceptance of the inevitable cycles of nature – cycles that we, as humans, should learn to embrace rather than fight against.” - Wendy Ide, Screen Daily
