Hunt for the Wilder People

August 5-11, 2016

Action/Adventure/Comedy (PG-13 – 101 minutes)
8/5, 8/6, 8/10, 8/11  7:30 P.M.

Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way.



Finding Nemo - FREE Movie at the Carlisle Theatre


August 6, 2016  2:30 P.M.

Animation/Comedy/Kids & Family (G – 100 minutes)

Finding Dory—the sequel to the Academy Award-winning, smash animated hit Finding Nemo—is quickly on its way to becoming the top-grossing movie of the summer, and audiences of all ages across the country are no doubt enjoying Dory’s adventure on the big screen.  However, many of those same people never got the chance to see Finding Nemo in a movie theatre—especially those who weren’t even born yet when it was first released in 2003.

The Carlisle Theatre is looking to fix that.  On Saturday, August 6, 2016, at 2:30 p.m., everyone is invited to a FREE screening of Finding Nemo.  This is a great opportunity for young children to see one of their favorite movies like they never have before—in high definition picture and sound on one of the largest movie screens in the area.  Our concession stand, offering some of the lowest beverage and snack prices in the area, will be open to compliment your movie going experience.

8/14  2:00 P.M.

Ben and Leslie Cash have long lived largely off the grid with their offspring – Bodevan, Kielyr, Vespyr, Rellian, Zaja and Nai – in a cabin in the mountains of Washington state. The parents have passed their ideals to their children, namely socialism (in its various forms) and survivalism. With the former, Ben considers most of western society as being fascist, especially corporate America, fascism being a negative concept. With the latter, he figures that no one will or should be there for you, so you better learn how to take care of yourself in all its aspects. As such, the children have been subject to  vigorous physical training, know how to deal with minor bumps, bruises, cuts, sprains and even fractures, and know how to hunt, forage and grow their own food. The children are also non-registered home schooled, meaning that they have no official academic records. Ben and Leslie have tried to make the children critical thinkers, however within the context of their ideals.
