“Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” plays four days, Friday – Monday, Oct. 4 – 7.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015s “Furious 7,” the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba)gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bestsa brilliant and fearlessrogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’ssister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.

Hobbs & Shawblasts open a new door as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.

This 136-minute Action Adventure is Rated PG -13 for prolonged sequences of action and violence, suggestive material and some strong language.

“The Farewell” plays four days, Friday – Monday, Oct. 11 – 14.

In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks tolive, everyone has decided not to tell her.

To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad.

As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken.

With “The Farewell,” writer/director Lulu Wang has created a heartfelt celebration of both the way we perform family and the way we liveit, masterfully interweaving a gently humorous depiction of the good lie in action with a richly moving story of how family can unite and strengthen us, often in spite of ourselves.

This 98-minute Comic Drama about family dynamics is Rated PG for thematic material, brief language and some smoking.

“The Human Element” plays one night only: Thursday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. Free.

As part of continuing efforts to invite the community-at-large to be part of the FRC 2019-20 Book in Common: A FIRE STORY, Feather River College and Plumas Arts present this one evening free showing of “The Human Element,” an arresting new documentary from the producers of “Racing Extinction,” “The Cove” and “Chasing Ice.”

Environmental photographer James Balog captures the lives of everyday Americans on the front lines of climate change.

With rare compassion and heart, “The Human Element” inspires us to reevaluate our relationship with the natural world. We humans are a force of nature. At the same time human activities alter the basic elements of life — earth, air, water, and fire — those elements change human life.

“The Peanut Butter Falcon” plays four days, Friday – Monday, Oct. 18 –21.

A modern Mark Twain-style adventure story, “The Peanut Butter Falcon” tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church).

A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally.

Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them on their journey.

This 93 minute Adventure Comedy is Rated PG-13 for thematic content, language throughout, some violence and smoking.

“It: Chapter Two” plays four days, Friday – Monday, Oct. 25 – 28 to be confirmed.

Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “IT: Chapter Two” brings the characters — who’ve long since gone their separate ways — back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.

Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise. James McAvoy (Split, Glass) stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Mama) as Beverly, Bill Hader (HBO’s Barry, The Skeleton Twins) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV’s Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV’s Mary Kills People) as Ben, James Ransone (HBO’s The Wire) as Eddie, and Andy Bean (Allegiant, Starz’ Power) as Stanley.

“Deej” plays one night only: Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. Free.

In recognition of Disability Awareness Month, the Feather River College Diversity Committee and Plumas Arts present this one evening free showing of “Deej.”

Abandoned by his birth parents and unable to speak for himself, DJ Savarese (“Deej”) found not only a loving family but also a life in words, which he types on a text-to-voice synthesizer.

As he makes his way through high school and dreams of college, he confronts the terrors of his past, obstacles to inclusion, and the sometimes paralyzing beauty of his own senses.

In his advocacy on behalf of other nonspeaking autistics, he embraces filmmaking and poetry, and discovers what having a voice can truly mean. In this first-of-its-kind collaboration between a veteran filmmaker and a nonspeaking autistic, Robert Rooy and DJ share editorial control as they navigate the challenges of representing autism.

“Deej” is a story told largely from the inside, by DJ— not by his parents or autism experts or even the camera.

Booking confirmations are also awaited for “Abominable” on Nov. 1-4 and “Downton Abbey” on Nov. 8-10.
