I heard on the news this morning that it is going to rain.  Blah.

I mean, really, what is there to do in the desert when it rains?!?!  Not much.

Well, lucky for us there is this wonderful little movie theater in town called the Cinemas Palme D’Or.  It’s an independent theater that screens culturally enriching films and invites top notch directors, producers and actors to host Q&A’s about their latest projects on a weekly basis.

Being able to listen to a director speak on his film in an intimate setting and/or watch a royal ballet in 3D somehow gives this small town a taste of the “big city” – what’s not to love about that?!

If you want to hide out from the storm this week, we suggest you grab a date/some friends/ or just your best rain coat and head on over to the theater to see something your normally wouldn’t.

Who knows, maybe you have a deep appreciation for ballet that you have yet to tap into?  Or maybe Peter Ramsey will inspire you to finally put our that film project you’ve been editing for two years?

Read the information information below to see what our Flick Picks of the Week are, we promise you’ll find something.

Enjoy!

Birmingham Royal Ballet: David Bintley’s Cinderella 

The Birmingham Royal Ballet's production of CINDERELLA

xx

Cinémas Palme d’Or is proud to present the The Birmingham Royal Ballet’s production of CINDERELLA. The three-act performance weaves a delightfully sweet narrative narrative, telling the fairy tale story from her dazzling appearance at a sumptuous ball to her eventual marriage to the prince. Stunning scenery transforms the vast stage into an unhappy scullery, a star-lit night and an incredible ball. Lovers of ballet absolutely must see this spectacular interpretation of the classic Prokofiev score.
