Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989)

Rated PG

History is about to be rewritten by two guys who can’t spell…

Fri, Oct 25 & Sat, Oct 26 @ 7:30

Tickets are $6 for all ages.
Tickets are available at City Drug, Crown Drug, Harbor Drug, online, and at the door 30 minutes prior to the show.

“Party on, dudes!”

Best friends Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are in danger of flunking history most heinously. If they don’t ace their final history presentation they won’t graduate from high school – and their rock band, Wyld Stallions, will be no more. This would be bogus and uncool!

Bill and Ted get some unexpected help from a time traveler named Rufus (George Carlin).  It seems that in Rufus’s time, Bill and Ted’s music is the foundation of a perfect society. If Wyld Stallyns is disbanded, Rufus’s world will no longer exist. So he shows up with a time-traveling telephone booth. The dudes use it to travel through time, retrieve historical characters, and hopefully ace their history exam. Whoa, gnarly!

But finding historical characters and getting them to the high school are two different things. Will Bill and Ted and company make it to the high school in time to save humanity?

Starring Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, and George Carlin.

Twelve O’Clock High (1949)

Gregory Peck stars as tough-as-nails Gen. Frank Savage in this double Academy Award winner (Dean Jagger, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Sound Mixing).

Sat, Nov 2 @ 7:30; Sun, Nov 3 @ 2:00

Tickets are $6 for all ages

Tickets are available at City Drug, Crown Drug, Harbor Drug, online and at the door 30 minutes prior to the show.

Not Rated.

This gritty World War II action drama is regarded as one of the most realistic portrayals of the heroics and perils of war.

Convinced an Air Force commander (Gary Merrill) is at the breaking point, Brigadier General Frank Savage (Gregory Peck) takes over the commander’s struggling bomber group. Kind and understanding but no pushover, Savage adopts a crushing discipline to revitalize the demoralized troop.

At first resentful and rebellious, the flyers gradually change as Savage guides them to amazing feats. But the stress of command soon takes its toll and the weary general reaches his own breaking point.

Gregory Peck described Twelve O’Clock High as a film of “daring and exceptional honesty” and the role of General Savage as “the most satisfying I’ve ever played.”

Twelve O’Clock High is also one of the first Hollywood films to deal with the psychological effects of war on combatants.

Starring Gregory Peck, Hugh Marlowe, and Gary Merrill. Peck won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor, 1950.

Locally sponsored by Rick Anderson, Coleman Mortuary, Pasha Automotive Services, Mary Thornton, Wunderland Childcare Centers, Alpha Media Grays Harbor, and Jodesha Broadcasting.

Labor Wars of the Northwest

Sat, Nov 9 @ 7:00 p.m.

Tickets are $7 for the general public.

Free for children under 12 with student identification.

Tickets are available at the Polson Museum, Harbor Drug, online, and at the door 30 minutes prior to the show.

A rocky slice of Grays Harbor and Northwest history is revisited in the new documentary, Labor Wars of the Northwest.

Written and directed by Northwest historian David Jepsen, Labor Wars chronicles the labor unrest, strikes, and gunfights that roiled throughout the region a century ago, including the radicalism and violence that erupted when labor activists and town leaders brawled in Aberdeen and Hoquiam.  

The film also examines labor conflict in the context of a decades-long struggle that began with the arrival of the railroads in the 1880s. It shines new light on the 1911 conflicts in Aberdeen, the tragedy in Centralia, and the Seattle General Strike of 1919.

Mr. Jepsen will lead a discussion on labor history and answer audience questions following the film.

The 7th Street Theatre and the Polson Museum are jointly sponsoring the film’s screening.
