2nd Thursday Indie Movie Night @ the Sonora Opera Hall:

2nd Thursday Indie Movie Night in April brings you the “Royal Tenenbaums” movie. The Royal Tenenbaums is one of the most original and dark comedies so far this (young) century. The all-star cast is dead on in their portrayal of a New York family with a few problems. If you haven’t seen the movie, you must. Bring a comfortable chair or use one of ours. There will be beer & wine and a “Royal Cocktail” as well as gourmet popcorn, of course! The doors open at 6:00 and the movie begins at 7:00 pm. Proceeds will be used for more events downtown. Sonora Opera Hall 215 S. Washington St, Sonora, ca 95370

April 14th – May 14th

Noises Off at the Fallon House Theater:

A riotous whirlwind of theatrical catastrophe, Noises Off presents a pitiful acting troupe stumbling through rehearsal and performance of a ludicrous farce. Bedlam reigns on stage and off, from missing contact lenses and misplaced props to philandering lovers and a lethally swing axe in three acts of non-stop hilarity. Rated PG Call the theater for show times at 209-532-3120.
