What's New


7:00pm & 9:30pm

Drew Hastings: Comedian, Farmer, Mayor - not necessarily in that order. Did you hear about the LA comedian who moved back to rural Ohio, bought a farm and then got elected mayor?  That’s Drew Hastings, a favorite on The Bob & Tom Show (and at YES Cinema), with appearances on Comedy Central and The Tonight Show.

Hastings appearance at YES Cinema on New Year’s Eve will not be his traditional stand-up, but rather "Stories for Grownups" - humorous stories and readings from his forthcoming book. As Drew describes it, "A very Midwest-centric, mostly humorous, edgy collection of stories and essays...longer-form humor and commentary."

Whether it's sales techniques from his stint as a psychedelic drug dealer or gardening in L.A. with retired ethnic cleansers, Drew's readings, as he says, "are a collection of funny, edgy, stories and essays with a Midwest perspective that Garrison Keillor would not recognize."

Both shows are rated "R" for language.  

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 after 6pm the night of the show (if there are any left! Drew’s shows tend to sell out early!). You can purchase tickets at the YES Cinema Box Office, online at www.yescinema.org or by calling the Cinema at 812.378.0377.

CHRISTMAS FILMS AT YES! - December 14 - 18

With enough sight gags to please slapstick fans and enough good-natured Christmas cheer to qualify as a good holiday film, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation has become a holiday classic.

A movie full of Yuletide cheer, Elf is a spirited, good-natured family comedy, and it benefits greatly from Will Ferrell's funny and charming performance as one of Santa's biggest helpers. With quite the cast - Will Ferrell, James Caan, Ed Asner, Zooey Deschanel, Peter Dinklage, Amy Sedaris, Andy Richter, Artie Lange, and Bob Newhart. 

All tickets are $5 for these special screenings

WELCOME TO MARWEN is welcomed at YES December 20th

WELCOME TO MARWEN, based on real events, is about the fantasy world of Mark Hogancamp. After being beaten into a brain-damaging coma by five men outside a bar, Mark builds a 1/6th scale World War II-era town in his backyard. Mark populates the town he dubs "Marwencol" with dolls representing his friends and family and creates life-like photographs detailing the town's many relationships and dramas. Playing in the town and photographing the action helps Mark to recover his hand-eye coordination and deal with the psychic wounds of the attack. 
When Mark and his photographs are discovered, a prestigious New York gallery sets up an art show. Suddenly Mark's homemade therapy is deemed "art", forcing him to choose between the safety of his fantasy life in Marwencol and the real world that he's avoided since the attack.
