Jan. 11: "Chicken Run" (G, 2000), 82 minutes, Fenimore Art Museum Auditorium.
In the tradition of “The Great Escape” and “Stalag 17,” comes a story of poultry in motion – “Chicken Run.” The store is set at Tweedy's Chicken Farm, where any chicken who doesn't make her egg quota can meet a "fowl" fate. But Rocky, Ginger and their fellow flock are determined to break out before they can be fried, filleted or fricasseed.
Jan. 18: "Toy Story 3" (G, 2010), 103 minutes, National Baseball Hall of Fame Grandstand Theater.
“Toy Story 3” welcomes Woody, Buzz and the whole gang back to the big screen as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find themselves in…daycare!
Jan. 25: "Meeting Venus" (PG-13, 1991), 119 minutes, Fenimore Art Museum Auditorium.
This light-hearted look at life, love, music and the chaotic pursuit of happiness uses the squabbling and petty jealousies that lie behind Opera Europa’s struggle to stage Wagner’s “Tannhauser” as a metaphor for the breaking down of barriers in Europe.
Feb. 1: "Groundhog Day" (PG, 1993), 103 minutes, Fenimore Art Museum Auditorium.
Self-centered television weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is once again sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to cover the annual Groundhog Day Festival. Little does he know that he has one day left to live — Feb. 2 — over and over again.
Feb. 8: "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (PG, 2001), 152 Minutes, National Baseball Hall of Fame Grandstand Theater.
