PENTON: THE JOHN PENTON STORY
November 22, 2014 | 7:00 PM (doors 6:30 PM)
Who the hell is John Penton? You're about to find out. The Far West Motorcycle Club and sponsors Leon's Car Care Center, Quality Body Works, and Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe are proud to present a new feature-length documentary about a man who transformed an industry and created a motorcycle racing dynasty. John Penton was one of the most influential figures in the development of off-road motorcycle racing in America during the 1960s and ‘70s. A national champion rider, Penton went on to develop a legendary brand of off-road motorcycles that bore his name. He also founded Hi-Point, a boot and apparel company that for a time boasted over half the sales in the U.S. market. The movie, narrated by Grammy winner Lyle Lovett (who worked in the parts department at a Penton dealership in Texas when he was 14), uses interviews, old photos, and recreated scenes to paint a detailed portrait of the motorcycle pioneer. See the trailer here. Fee for admission: pass-the-helmet donation at the theater. Proceeds will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of the Redwoods.

Blu-ray, 135 min.
Fourth Friday Flix: Black Friday Dino Double Feature!
THE LAND BEFORE TIME and JURASSIC PARK
November 28, 2014
Doors 1:30 PM | Land: 2:00 PM | Jurassic: 3:30 PM
When we were kids, everyone knew dinosaurs were giant lizards. Now, it turns out, they were more likely the ancestors of modern birds. So the day after most Americans celebrate their gratitude for all things good by consuming mass portions of Meleagris gallopavo (the modern domestic turkey), we thought it appropriate to honor their larger, significantly more badass progenitors. After the inevitable leftover turkey sandwich lunch, bring the kids to the Eureka Theater for a big-screen showing of the original 1988 animated classic THE LAND BEFORE TIME. Join Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie and Spike in their first adventure, as they journey together to find the Great Valley. Dino Day continues for the adults and older kids with the ultimate dinosaur blockbuster JURASSIC PARK (1993), in which Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum attempt to avoid becoming Dinosaur Chow when cloned theme-park dinosaurs run amok. Admission for the double feature is a budget-friendly $5.00 for all ages!
LAND BEFORE TIME: Rated G, 69 min.
JURASSIC PARK: Rated PG-13, 127 min.
