    “Barbie” held over by popular demand!  And “Beethoven” is the FREE drive-in movie in the Meadow Mall parking lot Sunday, Sept. 3!

    “Barbie” - (PG13; 1 hour, 54 minutes) - Living the perfect life in the perfect world, Barbie (Margot Robbie) has it all. Until one day when things start changing and her perfect world seems to fall apart. From her shower being cold to falling off her roof, rather than floating down, and her heels falling flat to the ground — Barbie now has to choose between her perfect life and finding out about the real world. Driving out of Barbie land and into California with Ken (Ryan Gosling), the two set out on a journey of self-discovery, experiencing life without perfection. Trouble follows as the CEO of Mattel (Will Ferrell) aims to put Barbie back in her box, silencing her journey and getting his chance in the spotlight. Wear pink to any show and take a selfie in our Barbie picture frame! Wednesday, August 23, 7 p.m., Thursday, August 24, 7 p.m., Friday, August 25, 7 p.m., Saturday, August 26, 7 p.m., Sunday, August 27, 2 p.m., Monday, August 28, 7 p.m., Tuesday, August 29, 7 p.m., Wednesday, August 30, 7 p.m., Thursday, August 31, 7 p.m.

    “It’s a riotously entertaining candy-coloured feminist fable that manages simultaneously to celebrate, satirise, and deconstruct its happy-plastic subject. Audiences will be delighted. Mattel should be ecstatic.” – Mark Kermode, Observer (UK)

    “The Miracle Club” - (PG13; 1 hour, 30 minutes) - Set in 1967, “The Miracle Club” follows the story of three generations of close friends, Lily (Maggie Smith), Eileen (Kathy Bates), and Dolly (Agnes O'Casey) of Ballygar, outside Dublin, who win a pilgrimage to the sacred French town of Lourdes, that place of miracles that draws millions of visitors each year. Just before their trip, their old friend Chrissie (Laura Linney) arrives in Ballygar for her mother's funeral. The women set out on the journey that they hope will change their lives, with Chrissie, a skeptical traveler, joining in place of her mother. Along the way, old wounds are reopened, forcing the women to confront their pasts even as they travel in search of a miracle. Plays at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1; Saturday, Sept. 2; Monday, Sept. 4; Tuesday, Sept. 5; Wednesday, Sept. 6; Thursday, Sept. 7; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 3.

    “This is a story of forgiveness and understanding, two qualities that seem to be scarce these days. Any movie that encourages people to be kinder to one another gets my vote.” – Lenoard Maltin,

    “Beethoven” - FREE FAMILY DRIVE-IN FILM -  (1992; PG; 1 hour, 28 minutes) - The Newton family live in their comfortable home, but there seems to something missing. This "hole" is filled by a small puppy, who walks into their home and their lives. Beethoven, as he is named, grows into a giant of a dog... a St Bernard. Doctor Varnick, the local vet has a secret and horrible sideline, which requires lots of dogs for experiments. Beethoven is on the bad doctor's list. Sunday, Sept. 3 - Gates open at 7 p.m., film at dusk.
