Ab-Fab-1-smThe outrageously funny British television sensation is hitting the big screen in “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” and will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre! Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone (Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. But when they accidentally push Kate Moss into the river Thames at an uber fashionable launch party, Eddy and Patsy become entangled in a media storm surrounding the supermodel’s untimely demise and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!

The Sedona International Film Festival is please to present “Don’t Think Twice” at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. For eleven years, an improv group called The Commune has reigned as the big fish in the small pond of their New York improv theater. Commune members Miles, Samantha, Jack, Allison, Bill and Lindsay invent comedy without a script and without a net. They’re ingenious, they’re fast, and they build on each others’ ideas like best friends — which they also are. Night after night they kill onstage and wait for their big break. Day after day they work menial jobs to support themselves. Then they get news that their theater is shutting down, and scouts from a hit TV show come to a performance looking for talent. Only two cast members get the nod, upsetting the dynamic of the group and leaving its future in doubt…For more information or to purchase tickets to this Sedona showing please visit the Sedona International Film Festival.

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members
The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present a special premiere of the acclaimed, award-winning new documentary “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You” showing at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. How did a poor Jewish kid from Connecticut bring us Archie Bunker and become one of the most successful television producers ever? Norman Lear brought provocative subjects like war, poverty, and prejudice into 120 million homes every week. He proved that social change was possible through an unlikely prism: laughter. “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You” is the definitive chronicle of Lear’s life, work, and achievements, but it is so much more than an arm’s-length, past-tense biopic. At 93, Lear is as vital and engaged as he ever was. For more information or to purchase tickets to this Sedona event please visit the Sedona International Film Festival.

Red Rock State Park Sunday Lecture
Nature & Technology: Friends or Foes?
September 25th, 2016 (1:00 pm)
Program Included with Park Fees
Red Rock State ParkWhat gets in the way of people spending time in nature? One of the answers we hear repeatedly is technology. Screens, phones, gadgets and games are reputed by many as an impediment to people connecting with the natural world. However, it may not be the technology in itself, but how technology is used that is responsible for the disconnect. In fact, technology actually might be a great resource as we carve out time to connect with the natural world. This interactive discussion will explore the relationship between technology and nature and give you an opportunity to discuss your own experiences with how the two complement and interfere with one another. Dr. Houchard is a professor of Philosophy in the Public Interest at Northern Arizona University and a co-owner of the Sedona Philosophy Experience (SPEX), an Arizona Benefit Corporation. However, seating is limited and reservations are required 928.282-6907. For more information please visit Red Rock State Park.
