This 1922 film is considered the most faithful version of Dickens' original novel—virtually every major character and subplot is included with little in the way of changes. In Victorian England, young Oliver Twist (Jackie Coogan) is born into poverty. His mother dies and his father is unaccounted for. Oliver is sent to a workhouse and gets in trouble for requesting more gruel. Running away from abusive conditions, Oliver heads for "polluted" London. He meets the Artful Dodger and joins a gang of boy pick-pockets led by the crafty old Fagin (Lon Chaney).
Also featured: “An Eastern Westerner” starring Harold Lloyd.
Total running time: 101 min.

Harold Lloyd’s comic masterpiece “Kid Brother” is a masterful blend of great comedy and sentiments. Harold Hickory (Lloyd) is smitten by Mary Powers travelling with her late father's medicine show. When the show burns down, Harold invites her to stay at his house with his father and brothers. When the town's money is stolen by thugs, Harold's father is accused, and with encouragement from Mary, Harold sets out to find the real crooks.
No matter how many times you watch this film you can always find something you did not notice previously. The film is so beautifully shot that it has an idyllic quality and its structure is something to be marveled at. It is so delicately built that every frame, even every prop serves a purpose for either characterization or as link between gags, or both.
Total running time: 87 min.

Wisdomkeepers, Paquo Andino
a film by Jeffrey Wium
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2014, 07:00 PM
Chautauqua Community House
$15.00 ($12.00 Member)
Buy Tickets Online

"Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino" is an inspirational, emotionally intimate and visually spectacular  documentary film. Shot on location in the Peruvian highlands, the film takes journeys into the heart of an ancient earthkeeping culture to experience a way of life that is at once practical and mystical. Wisdomkeepers is not narrated. As such, viewers receive a direct, unmediated experience of living with the Paqos, witnessing their heart-based intelligence and being touched by their active, reciprocal relationships with the conscious life force inherent within all aspects of the natural world.

The Andean Holy Mountain tradition is one of the planet’s few remaining uninterrupted wisdom lineages dating back 13,000 years. In 1532 the Andean Paqos found it necessary to retreat to remote, high-altitude locations to safeguard their practical and esoteric wisdom. By enduring the hardships of extended isolation and secrecy for the past 480 years, this ancient lineage has been able to maintain its unified cosmology while keeping its holistic lifeways intact.

Director and producer Jeffrey Wium will be present for a post screening conversation about the film project and his relationship with the Andean Paqos.

Chautauqua Picnic Shelter
$15.00 ($12.00 Member)

"Fight Church" follows several pastors and fighters in a quest to reconcile their faith with a sport that some consider violent and barbaric. Faith is tried and questions are raised. Can you really love your neighbor as yourself and then punch him in the face?

Academy Award-winning directorDaniel Junge ("Saving Face") and director Bryan Storkel ("Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians") team up with producers Eben Kostbar and Joseph McKelheer ("The Hammer") for a feature documentary about the confluence of Christianity and mixed martial arts, including ministries which train fighters. Director Daniel Junge will be present for a post screening discussion.


"This is compelling stuff. It's smart, non-judgmental, funny, dismaying, and provocative." -  Lisa Kennedy, The Denver Post
