GOLD TOWN NICKELODEON and ROCKWELL

For complete listings, visit www.goldtownnick.com.

“Chasing Ice” — Thursday-Sunday, Jan. 3-6. Synopsis: Filmmaker Jeff Orlowski profiles National Geographic photographer James Balog as he endeavors to capture undeniable proof of climate change by launching the ambitious Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), a project that entails using time-lapse photography to document shifting ice glaciers. With the aid of his young assistants, Balog travels to three continents, placing 30 cameras in key positions to record vivid images of the majestic ice caps as they slowly melt away. In the process of capturing these incredible shots, Balog finds his skepticism fading, and experiences a brush with mortality that leaves him positively convinced that nature is currently experiencing a profound shift, the likes of which has never been witnessed by modern man.

“Django” at Rockwell — 7, 9, 11 p.m., Friday, Jan. 4. Synopsis: A mysterious man trudges into town dragging a mud-stained coffin behind him. This man is Django (Franco Nero). After he saves Maria (Loredana Nusciak) from certain death, Django finds himself in the middle of a war between Mexican revolutionaries and a band of sadistic racists led by the fanatical Major Jackson (Eduardo Fajardo). In the face of overwhelming odds, Django has a plan: to exact revenge while pitting enemy against enemy. Featuring the addictively catchy title song performed by Rocky Roberts, “DJANGO” made an international star of Franco Nero, and along with Leone’s Man With No Name trilogy, established the Spaghetti Western as an internationally popular genre.
