Film: Iron Man 2
(PG-13~2010) 2 Hrs. 4 Min. (Blu-ray)
In Iron Man 2, the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts and James "Rhodey" Rhodes at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.

Doors at 6; music at 6:30; film at 7:45 p.m.

Last year’s musical tribute to Prince was so popular that we’ve decided to do it again. His music and movies live on and with these annual parties, so does his legacy. Live music is courtesy of the talented Tim Allen and Joe Barretta. Brian Friend of Voodoo Laser will be back with a phenomenal light show, and we’ll have plenty of cocktails, dancing and sparkly purple stuff to bring Prince to life for all of us, his loyal fans.  We’ll screen Purple Rainand have a blast. Be sure and come dressed in your  most flamboyant purple attire as we pay tribute to Prince Rogers Nelson (1958~2016).

Doors at 6p.m.
