THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON is now at YES Cinema!

   Another YES exclusive!

A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak's unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak's return, to join them on their journey.


We respectfully request your presence at YES Cinema

  DOWNTON ABBEY premieres Thursday at 7:01pm!

This week, the worldwide phenomenon DOWNTON ABBEY, becomes a grand motion picture event, as the beloved Crawleys and their intrepid staff prepare for the most important moment of their lives. A royal visit from the King and Queen of England will unleash scandal, romance and intrigue that will leave the future of Downton hanging in the balance.

June Thomas writing for Slate has praised the film, writing: "The plot of the Downton Abbey movie is brilliant, not so much because it is surprising, but because it allows every member of the cast to do what we expect of them."  Pete Bradshow, writing for The Guardian, said: "The Downton Abbey movie is [almost] as star-studded as  GOSFORD PARK - it's got its share of A-list talent: Maggie Smith, of course, as the dowager Countess of Grantham, Hugh Bonneville as Lord Grantham (absent-mindedly fondling his retriever at breakfast) – there's also Imelda Staunton in a new role and Jim Carter as the beetle-browed former butler Mr Carson."


FOLK MUSIC LEGEND CAROLYN HESTER in Concert Thursday, Sept. 26 at 7pm

 Carolyn Hester was a figure of the early-'60s folk revival, singing traditional material with a high voice in the manner of Joan Baez and Judy Collins. She is also remembered for her musical associations with Bob DylanBuddy Holly, and Richard Fariña, as well as having her early albums produced by music legends Nrman Petty (who had Holly), Tom ClancyJohn Hammond, and John Simon. Some of her early- and mid-'60s work points in directions that would lead to folk-rock.  In the '80s, she was a mentor for budding talent Nanci Griffith (whose vocals have been compared to Hester's), and appeared on Griffith's "Other Voices, Other Rooms" album.

Hester continues to be musically active into the new century and released "We Dream Forever" in 2009 - an intimate album that featured her daughters  Karla and Amy Blume co-producing, writing, and performing with their mother.
 
Nina Ricci is a singer and songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee, who creates music relevant to current times and keeps her footing in folk revival music. Born in Atlanta, Nina has lived in the Nashville area most of her life, and graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, and she has been active on the national music circuit.
