Prices are $25 for adults, $14 for kids, and, for Thursday and Sunday performances, $23 for seniors and students.

Particle Fever
Friday, May 2, 2014

Playing at the State Theatre at 3:30 and 8:30 pm

2013/USA/NR/99 min
Director: Mark Levinson

Imagine being able to watch as Edison turned on the first light bulb, or as Franklin received his first jolt of electricity. For the first time, a film gives audiences a front row seat to a significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it happens. ‘Particle Fever’ follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, marking the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet, pushing the edge of human innovation. As they seek to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. But our heroes confront an even bigger challenge: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist?

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Friday, May 2, 2014

Playing at the State Theatre at 1:00, 6:00 pm

2014/USA/R/100 min
Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: Ralph Fiennes, F. Tony Revolori, Adrien Brody

Auteur director Wes Anderson (“Moonrise Kingdom,” “The Life Aquatic,” “The Royal Tennenbaums”) latest offering follows Gustav H. (Ralph Fiennes), the concierge at a legendary hotel situated in the Alps during the 1930′s, as he becomes the center of a farcical whirlwind of suspicion when one of his institution’s oldest and richest patrons turns up dead. And after she suspiciously leaves him her most priceless work of art — a Renaissance painting of a boy with an apple – in her will. Infuriated that she left anything of value to anyone else, the woman’s greedy and nefarious heir Dmitri (Adrien Brody) uses all manner of underhanded and illegal tactics to pin her death on Gustav and to silence anyone who questions his objective of inheriting every penny of her estate, leaving Gustav’s trusted lobby boy Zero (newcomer Tony Revolori) to clear Gustav’s name and prove that the grand lady’s killer is none other than her own son.
