There may be other interesting things going around, but here are two I know about. Anybody want to share any others?
In Buffalo I just learned the Buffalo Theater will be showing some of the Oscar Nominated Shorts this coming weekend. I don’t know exactly when, yet. I guess we can all just watch their website. When I learn more I’ll send an update.
Update! Here are the show times for all three programs: Animated, Live Action and Documentary.
Fri, 7:15: Live Action, Rated R
Sat, 4:15: Animated, Rated R
Sat, 7:15: Live Action, Rated R
Sun, 4:15: Documentary, Rated R
Also, the WYO Theater will be bringing the BANFF Mountain Film Festival to their screen in April. Tickets are available online right now. Adult $22; Student $12
Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival is one of the largest and most prestigious mountain festivals in the world! Hot on the heels of the Festival that is held every fall in beautiful Banff, Alberta, the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road. With stops planned in roughly 550 communities and more than 40 countries across the globe, the Banff World Tour celebrates amazing achievements in outdoor storytelling and filmmaking worldwide!
As you may or may not know, the Buffalo Theater has reopened under new ownership. The new owners are interested in showing some of the sorts of films Bennett Street Films likes. Since our mission and purpose includes showing movies “that otherwise wouldn’t play in North East Wyoming”, we decided we can maybe help get the word out on the more independent or “smaller” films they book for during their regular hours.
We think we’ll be able to do some other events as well. Stay tuned. More Movies Please!
This coming weekend is a perfect example: Licorice Pizza
Our presentation of the 2018 Oscar Nominated Shorts will take place on Friday, February 16th, 2018 and Saturday February 17th, 2018. The films will show in the micro-theater inside the CCC.

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.
