Max & Leon (Comedy, French, 98 Minutes)
April 15, 2017
Saturday 4pm and 7pm
Max & Leon is the first feature film from the stars of the French TV sensation The Palmashow: the creation of stand-up comedians Grégoire Ludig and David Marsais.
In this epic WW2 comedy—in the vein of La Grande Vadrouille (which was for 40 years the most popular French film in the history of France)—our two heroes, Max and Léon, will try by all means possible to avoid going into battle… which leads the duo into a series of demented and wild adventures.
This over-the-top but good-natured parody is filled with truculent puns, unusual details and a strong desire to laugh at everything and never apologize for it.
Our presentation of the 2017 Oscar Nominated Shorts will take place on Friday, February 24th, 2017 and Saturday 25, 2017. This is different than usual as we are trying to avoid conflicts with other cool things going on in town. The films will show in the micro-theater inside the CCC. Live Action will run Friday evening, Animated will run Saturday afternoon.
With this last minute series of two films you get to choose both of ’em!
We really wanted to share these two very enjoyable films with you. Both will play on Nov. 4th and Nov. 5th so you can forget about other things for a while. Both titles will show at the Cowboy Carousel Center at 59 N. Lobban in Buffalo, WY.

Our presentation of the 2016 Oscar Nominated Shorts will take place on Sunday, February 21st, 2016. This is the same as last year when we only had one showing of each program. The films will show in the micro-theater inside the CCC.
Though the Oscar Shorts are unrated, some of you have asked for basic ratings guidelines for the programs:
Animated – PG (mostly). With one clear 6 minute exception that is likely not suitable for children.
Live Action – R. There are several shorts in this year’s program that parents might want to restrict their children from watching. Also, please remember, some audience members can find it uncomfortable to watch mature content while sitting next to children.
2016 Ballot – In case you’d like to vote and see how you do compared to the Academy judges! Download available with purchase of a ticket or in hardcopy when you show up at the door.
Last but not at all least, please acknowledge and remember to thank the folks at the Cowboy Carousel Center and the publishers of the Buffalo Bulletin. There’s a good chance this wouldn’t be happening without their support.
