I have seen "Beginners" (which is also on video), and it's quite good, especially Christopher Plummer, who is considered the favorite for the supporting-actor Oscar. Still trying to get to "My Week With Marilyn," which is hard to find right now, so this may be a good opportunity. Tickets are $5. The info from the Palace:
"Beginners" February 2nd & 4th 7:30pm
“Beginners” commences as Oliver (Ewan McGregor) is cleaning out the house after his father
Hal (Christopher Plummer – Nominateed for Best Supporting Actor) has lost his battle with
Stage 4 cancer. Oliver nonchalantly recounts via voice-over his father’s announcing his gay predilections after wife Georgia (Mary Page Keller) passed away, then subsequently joining
gay social clubs and carousing at gay discos before meeting a much younger boyfriend,
Andy (Goran Visnjic). Oliver jogs his memory further back to his parents’ perfunctory, love-
less marriage that has spelled doom for his own series of love affairs. But if blame is to be cast,
it is only cast toward a time when people thought therapy or marriage could “fix” homosexuality.
Rated R for language some sexual content.
105 minutes Comedy/Drama
“My Week with Marilyn” February 9th, 10th & 12th 7:30pm

make it as a filmmaker, and as a third aassitant director on the film, found himself in the most intimate situation with the screen siren, who confided in him during one magical week. Nominations for Best Actress & Best Supporting Actor.
