Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today 2 get through this thing called life. Electric word, life--it means forever and that's a mighty long time. But I'm here 2 tell u there's something else...the afterworld. A world of never ending happiness--u can always see the sun, day or night. So when u call up that shrink in Beverly Hills--U know the one, Dr Everything'll Be Alright--instead of asking him how much of your time is left, ask him how much of your mind, baby. 'Cuz in this life, things are much harder than in the afterworld. In this life...you're on your own.
Take a break from being on your own, and join us this Saturday to celebrate the life and music of His Royal Badness, Prince Rogers Nelson, with a one-time-only screening of PURPLE RAIN. Tickets are $5.00 all ages, going on sale at the theater at 5:30 PM. Doors will open at 6:45 PM, showtime at 7:30 PM.

Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM
The Eureka Theater is proud to present a rare screening of Robert Altman's smash hit black comedy from 1970. Set in an army medical unit during the Korean War (an allegorical stand-in for Vietnam), Altman's darkly satirical film flew under the radar of Fox executives during production, but went on to be nominated for five Academy Awards. Like the novel it's based upon, the screenplay is largely a collection of episodes and comic scenes. With no defining story arc, Altman turns the atmosphere and the chaos into the film's through-line. M*A*S*H bounces between bloody gallows humor in the operating theater and the brutal practical jokes played by the doctors between shifts, finally culminating in a no-holds-barred football match between two rival Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals. Tickets are $5.00.
