“Much Ado About Nothing” — Thursday-Sunday, July 11-14. Synopsis: Shakespeare’s classic comedy is given a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon’s film, “Much Ado About Nothing”.

Not So Silent Film Double Feature: “Safety Last” and “Girl Shy” – Tuesday, July 16. The Gold Town will reprise “Safety Last,” Harold Lloyd’s most famous achievement, culminating in his hair-raising free-climb of a New York skyscraper. Voted one of the best comedies of all time, it was inducted into the National Film registry in 1994. “Girl Shy” was Lloyd’s second film, and the first he produced himself. It’s a raucous comedy/love story/high-speed chase that features neck-breaking stunts, performed live by Lloyd himself.

Richard Dowling will accompany the film with a live original score on piano.

Gathr Film Screening: “Informant” — Wednesday, July 17. Synopsis: In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Brandon Darby developed a reputation as a bold and effective activist and founding member of the relief organization Common Ground. His mix of charisma and bravado established him as grass-roots activist darling to the American Left. Everything changed in 2008 when two youths were arrested for attempting to disrupt the Republican National Convention. Darby, working as an informant for the FBI, infiltrated the protest group, and was largely responsible for their arrest. Filmmaker Jamie Meltzer reveals the bigger truths behind Darbys actions through interviews with all the major players and stylized reenactments (featuring Darby playing himself).
