What a great holiday…in terms of weather there have been some highs and some lows but we sure are finishing it up on a good note and I hope everyone is getting a chance to enjoy this great Alaskan weather before we all resume the grind Monday Morning!
It has been a few weeks vacation from Friday Night Movies – and we wanted to kick off the second half of the season with a big night and Hollywood has complied! We hope to pack the house for these two award nominated (and soon to be winning) movies this coming Friday….
This Friday January 11th…
6 PM – Isle of Dogs (PG-13 – 105 mins)
When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
-This movie is nominated for Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature and Best Score.

8:00 PM – Bohemian Rhapsody (PG-13 – 133 mins)
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day
