Fallon Theatre

Join us starting Thursday for a special three days as we feature Fallon's own Performing Arts of Churchill County 2023 Fall Youth Musical — “The Maine Street Gang, The Musical.”

 A group of local kids discover an old abandoned building downtown. After transforming it into their clubhouse, they begin to uncover the incredible history of the old building. But, will their clubhouse be demolished to make way for a new mall? What can a small group of kids do to preserve the history of their downtown community? When that group of kids is The Maine Street Gang, there's no telling what can happen!

Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. plus a matinee performance Saturday at 1 p.m. For tickets and information please visit paccnv.org.

During all performances concessions will be available. Come out and support this great community group.” The Maine Street Gang “was written as a tribute to the Fallon Theatre and a tool to draw attention to both the Save the Fallon Theatre and the Performing Arts of Churchill County, both nonprofit organizations.

Don't forget next Saturday, Nov. 11, the Will Shamberger Band along with High Desert Habit take our stage. Join us for some great music. Concert begins at 7 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets are only $12.

Noir Classics

The fall film series in November features the great Noir Classics from three decades: “The Thin Man,” “Chinatown” and “The Maltese Falcon.” Each movie will be shown on a Friday night at the Oats Park Arts Center.

• “The Thin Man” (1934), Nov. 3 – The story of a retired detective (William Powell) who, while spending much of his time managing his wife's (Myrna Loy) considerable fortune and consuming quantities of alcohol, is asked to follow the trail of a missing inventor. Although reluctant to interrupt his holiday in Manhattan, he is persuaded to investigate by his wife's craving for adventure, and together they embark upon a case that leads to the disclosure of deception and murder.

• “Chinatown” (1974), Nov. 10 – When Los Angeles private eye J.J. "Jake" Gittes (Jack Nicholson) is hired by Evelyn Mulwray to investigate her husband's activities, he believes it's a routine infidelity case. Jake's investigation soon becomes anything but routine when he meets the real Mrs. Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) and realizes he was hired by an imposter. Mr. Mulwray's sudden death sets Gittes on a tangled trail of corruption, deceit and sinister family secrets as Evelyn's father (John Huston) becomes a suspect in the case.

• “The Maltese Falcon” (1941), Friday, Nov. 17 – In this noir classic, detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) gets more than he bargained for when he takes a case brought to him by a beautiful but secretive woman (Mary Astor). As soon as Miss Wonderly shows up, trouble follows as Sam's partner is murdered and Sam is accosted by a man (Peter Lorre) demanding he locate a valuable statuette.
