Who You Gonna Call....again? GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE now at YES Cinema!

When a single mother and her two children move to a new town, they soon discover that they have a connection to the original Ghostbusters and their grandfather's secret legacy.

"Ghostbusters: Afterlife is a bucket load of adventurous fun and Jason Reitman has his heart in the right place, utilizing his father's creations to expand and form a new legacy of youthful ghostbusters." - Ben Rolph, AwardsWatch

"There's something obviously personal in this Reitman-to-Reitman torch-passing, and it combines with the rural setting to spark faint but fond memories of early Spielberg classics." - Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

DISNEY'S ENCANTO now playing!

The Madrigals are an extraordinary family who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a charmed place called the Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift -- every child except Mirabel. However, she soon may be the Madrigals last hope when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is now in danger. (ENCANTO contains a sequence with flashing lights that may affect those who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or have other photosensitivities)

"Encanto is a beautiful and vibrant celebration of a family, filled with the enchanting magic of Beauty and the Beast and the heart of Disney and Pixar's Coco. 98 minutes of pure bliss, a story about how weaknesses can be strengths, strengths can be weaknesses, and how love and determination is way better than magic when it comes to healing a broken family." - San Francisco Chronicle 

On New Year’s Eve, Mike Armstrong returns to YES!

Let’s shake off 2020 and 2021 with a return to HILARIOUS LIVE STAND-UP COMEDY! 

Described by those who know him as the real life version of the Southern Gentleman, Mike Armstrong can best be described as the perfect best friend that you just met. One of the most iconic themes of Mike's shows is that they are family friendly - meaning he does not cuss, is not vulgar and does not talk about politics and sex.  His shows are full of hilarious real life stories of family life, police life and just plain living. When asked why he has kept his shows like this over the years, Mikes response is always that when he first started out, he was just mindful of the fact that he didn't want to put on a show that his Grandma wouldn't enjoy and that philosophy has worked out great for him throughout the years.

When he is not on the road, traveling across this great country of ours and making people laugh, you can find him at home in Kentucky, enjoying a very blessed life with his wife Petra, their five children, numerous grandchildren and fur babies.

From a fan of Mike’s…"Mike is fabulous - so funny, clean and just a fun guy all around - his laugh is so contagious, he doesn’t even have to tell jokes - if he just stood up there and laughed the whole audience would laugh with him and not even notice he wasn’t telling jokes. Love that guy - and his jokes ARE hilarious!" 

Rated PG 13 - Showtimes on New Year’s Eve at 7pm and 9:30pm for $20 per person in advance ($25 at the door if it doesn’t sell out!). Tickets on sale now! Great Christmas gift or a treat for friends, family, and employees! ENJOY A NIGHT OF LAUGHS! We all need it!

Opening for Mike will be Franklin’s own Hoss Ridgeway!

Hoss has been entertaining groups of all sizes since the 1990s. He has performed in over 30 states and a few countries. He has made audiences laugh in clubs, on cruises, in churches and for large corporations. He uses stand-up comedy, impressions, crazy sound effects and musical comedy to bring his unique style of comedy to crowds all over the USA. He has recorded a DryBar special and is a regular at the Mike Huckabee show.
