Happy New Year to all of you! A big thank you to everyone who joined us for the Luke and Kaylee concert — what a great turnout! Another big thank you to all who attended all our Christmas movies and specials this December.

To start the New Year, this weekend Jan. 6 and 7, we have two great movies playing for you both Friday and Saturday evenings.

Please be aware that our times have changed – early movie begins at 6 p.m. and the second feature each evening will start at 7 p.m. Our first movie, at 6 p.m., is the 1988 animated film The Land Before Time.

An orphaned brontosaurus named Littlefoot sets off in search of the legendary Great Valley. A land of lush vegetation where the dinosaurs can thrive and live in peace. Along the way he meets four other young dinosaurs and they encounter several obstacles plus the evil predator Sharptooth as they learn to work together in order to survive. Voices provided by Pat Hingle, Gabriel Damon and Bill Erwin.

Our second feature each evening, beginning at 7 p.m. is the 2001 fantasy film Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone – the first installment in the Harry Potter film series. The story follows Harry's first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as he discovers that he is a famous wizard while beginning his formal wizarding education and learns the truth about himself, his family and the terrible evil that haunts the magical world.

Stars Daniel Radcliffe, Richard Harris, Robbie Coltrane and Maggie Smith.

Please mark your calendar for three great special events this January.

Starting Friday, Jan. 20, we have a local film being debuted at the Fallon Theatre - Senior Cut Days. Movie begins at 6 p.m. that evening and tickets are $13 per person.

The suspense thriller from Director/Producer Alvin Gray tells the story of two young women traveling to a small town in Northern Nevada called Oldtown to film a documentary on the story of Julia Bulette, a Virginia City prostitute from the Comstock era. While taking a quick rest on the outskirts of town, the two stop for food and come across much more than a ghost story.

“I filmed throughout Northern Nevada, including Hazen, Fallon, Reno, Wadsworth, and Middlegate,” said Gray. “Both Papas Ranchhouse Pizzeria in Wadsworth and the Middlegate Bar were extremely helpful with allowing us to shoot scenes in their businesses.”

The next evening, Saturday, Jan. 21 we have The Coaches in concert, bringing their great brand of music to our stage. Doors open at 6 p.m., concert starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $10 per person. The following week, on Friday, Jan. 27, The Will Shamberger Band will once again rock the stage. Tickets are $15 per person, doors open at 6 p.m., concert starts at 7 p.m.
