Admission is $5 to each screening.
In “Boy Erased”, Jared Eamons, the son of a small-town Baptist pastor, must overcome the fallout after being outed as gay to his parents. Fearing a loss of family, friends and community, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy program. While there, Jared comes into conflict with its leader and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self. The film stars Lucas Hedges (“Manchester by the Sea”), Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe. “Boy Erased” is rated R and is 115 minutes long.
In “Ralph Breaks the Internet”, video game bad guy Ralph and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz must risk it all by traveling to the World Wide Web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, “Sugar Rush.” In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the Internet – the netizens – to help navigate their way, including an entrepreneur named Yesss, who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site BuzzzTube.
John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman provide the voices of the main characters in this sequel to “Wreck it Ralph”. “Ralph Breaks the Internet” is rated PG and is 116 minutes long. During sensory friendly screenings, the sound will be lower and lights kept up higher to help patrons with sensitivity issues.
Also, patrons may move around in the seats and talk during the screening without stigma.
