Lewis and Clark
Lewis and Clark Mon 03/30/15 To Wed 06/03/15

It was the dawn of a nation -- a time before the American West became known as the frontier, and little was known about what lay within. Two captains, courageous in spirit and unyielding in their dedication to their mission, led 31 people, including one woman and her infant son, to the Pacific Ocean and back. Now, 200 years after the launch of the expedition, this breathtaking drama is captured for audiences in the newest large-format release from National Geographic. Audiences will experience the danger and beauty of the unknown West as it unfolded before the eyes of Lewis and Clark. The movie is narrated by Jeff Bridges.

A team of equally driven scientists, the VORTEX2 researchers, experience the relentless strength of nature's elemental forces as they literally surround tornadoes and the supercell storms that form them, gathering the most comprehensive severe weather data ever collected. This science adventure reveals the beauty and the power of some of our planet's most extreme -- and least understood -- weather phenomena.

White Rabbit/Red Rabbit
White Rabbit/Red Rabbit Mon 03/30/15

Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour was denied a passport because of his status as conscientious objector. Unable to travel, he wrote a play which, since its premiere in 2011, has taken audiences by storm and been celebrated worldwide as one of the most transformative and original evenings in theatre.
Every performance is unique - and a surprise for the brave actor who is not allowed to see the script until the moment they arrive on stage, joining the audience on a journey into the unknown, stumbling upon the personal and profound, the limits of liberty and ultimately where theatre can take you, with or without a passport.
"Wildly unpredictable and completely unforgettable... a testament to the power of words to transcend cultures and borders. You have to be there." - New Zealand Herald

Prices: General Admission $10, at the door $15
