Joshua Davis & Joe Wilson
Thursday, December 12, 2013

Ladies and gentlemen... The Workshop Brewing Company is pleased to present an historic night of music... After much anticipation and an eternity of waiting... we now announce the momentous reunion concert of... (drum roll) Joshua Davis and Joe Wilson!

What!? It's only been three weeks since their last gig here? Well, heck- when you love these guys as much as we do, three weeks seems like an ETERNITY. Anyway, they're back. So get yourself back to the Workshop for the best dang Thursday night music show in town- not to mention the opportunity to guzzle down some Spirit Level (our newly-released local chestnut brown ale). In moderation, of course (the beer, that is, not the music. You can guzzle down as much music as you want).

7p.m.-10p.m.

Philomena
Thursday, December 12, 2013

Playing at the State Theatre at 1:00, 3:30, 6:00, 8:15 pm

2013/UK/PG-13/98 min
Director: Stephen Frears
Cast: Judi Dench, Steve Coogan, Sophie Kennedy Clark

Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, “The Lost Child of Philomena Lee,” “Philomena” focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock – something her Irish-Catholic community didn’t have the highest opinion of – and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn’t allow for any sort of inquiry into the son’s whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.

“It’s Dench, showing how faith and hellraising can reside in the same woman, who makes Philomena moving and memorable.”
-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“One of the most eloquent, powerful and perfect movies I have ever seen.”
-Rex Reed, TheNew York Observer

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Thursday, December 12, 2013

Playing at the Bijou by the Bay at 12:30, 4:00, 7:30 pm.

2013/USA/PG-13/146 min
Director: Francis Lawrence
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks

This adaptation of the second novel from Suzanne Collins’s “Hunger Games” trilogy spirits us back to the classico-futurist kingdom of Panem, where teenagers win rations for their neighbours and loved ones by competing in a reality-televised fight to the death. Since the events of the first film, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), the victor of the 74th Annual Hunger Games, has become a celebrity, role model and something approaching an icon. And this means that for President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the ruling classes of the Capitol, she has become a problem. The Games were designed to serve as a distraction for the trodden-down, tyrannised residents of Panem’s outlying Districts, but Katniss’s rule-bending victory has made them itch for revolution. During a victory tour with Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), a fellow competitor with whom she contrived a crowd-pleasing romance, there is unrest in the crowds.
