october 24 - Breathe (PG-13)
Special showing on World Polio Day, presented by Farmington Rotary. 7pm.
BREATHE tells the inspiring true story of Robin and Diana Cavendish (Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy), an adventurous couple who refuse to give up when Robin is struck down by polio at the age of 28. With the help of Diana's brothers and inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Robin and Diana dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together.
[Breathe] is worth seeing both for Garfield's and Foy's impressive performances as well as Serkis' delicate and tender direction.

Experience live music Out Front at the Farmington Civic Theater in Downtown Farmington. Some call it street performing while others use the term "busking". Either way, it sure is a great way to add some energy to town. Out Front began in 2016.
During the warmer-weather months, you'll find talented performers on the sidewalk at the theater. It's a bonus for those arriving for or departing from a movie. Enjoy the music while hangin' outside at the Farmington Brewing Company, John Cowley & Sons, Basement Burger Bar and Browndog Creamery. We see many that sit, for a bit, on the benches to take it all in.
