Come to see Sweetgrass this Friday, July 23rd 2010 – Sunday, July 25th 2010 at the Harris Theater.
For just $7.00, you can experience what Kenneth Turan from LATimes calls, “Unexpectedly intoxicating”
An unsentimental elegy to the American West, Sweetgrass is a riveting portrait of a dying way of life. It follows the last of the modern-day cowboys as they lead their flocks of some 3,000 sheep up into Montana’s breathtaking, dangerous mountains for summer pasture. This astonishingly beautiful yet unsparing film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, vulnerability and violence, are all intimately connected.

Relax this weekend with a show!
Join the Harris Theater on Fri, July 9th 2010 – Fri, July 16th 2010 for $7 and witness the blackest comedy rather than the bleakest noir. Ray is an unhappily married construction worker when he notices Carla, a pretty hairdresser. Just happens she’s married to a low-level mobster. Ray’s put to the test when Carla presents him with a bag of cash, the proceeds of her husband’s latest crime. But of course, what looks like a clear path takes one dark twist after another in an escalating spiral of blackmail, kickbacks, cover-ups, arson and murder: a nightmare of unforeseen events stemming from their simple plan. (Nash Edgerton; Australia; 2008; 106 min)
