July 14 - 17….Lubbock Community Theatre Presents “Getting to Know Cinderella” - G2K Cinderella is a part of the ‘G2K’ Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. With music by Rodgers, Richard | Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, directed by Heather May and music direction by Tom Laney this timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. Princess and knightly attire encouraged. Tickets for the production are $15.00 for Adults and $10.00 for Children 12 and under. Cinderella Tea (Optional – Sold Separately) – Limited to 40 seats. Come enjoy refreshments and fun with Cinderella, the Fairy Godmother and all their friends after our Sunday Matinees. Feel free to come dressed in your best princess or knightly finery to take photos and have fun. $10.00 each. 4:30-5:30 after Sunday matinee. For tickets, visit lubbockcommunitytheatre.org.

Complications arise when a visiting sheriff falls for "Jasmine" and "her" sudden disappearance leads Sahara to accuse Polly of murder! An attempt to clear Polly's name, an outrageous chase, and the search for a bank robber all conspire to bring the play to a surprising - and side-splitting - conclusion.

Science Spectrum's Omni Theater Presents "Greatest Hits" Film Series July 15th - October 6

On a relatively frequent occasion, patrons ask if there are plans to bring back some of the iconic films that seem to define the Giant Screen documentary experience at the OMNI Theater. Usually, new films already scheduled don’t allow for this possibility. But our 2016 late Summer and early Fall film schedule has allowed an opening to re-introduce some of these legendary documentary films in a new film series entiled; “The OMNI’s Greatest Hits.” Each film being shown has been selected based on unsurpassed cinematography, compelling story and previous popularity.

Line-up for “The OMNI’s Greatest Hits” film series:

The Living Sea
Showing July 15th through August 11th

(Originally Released 1995)
The Living Sea celebrates the beauty and power of the ocean as it explores our relationship with this complex and fragile environment. Using beautiful images of unspoiled healthy waters, The Living Sea offers hope for recovery engendered by productive scientific efforts. Oceanographers studying humpback whales, jellyfish, and deep-sea life show us that the more we understand the ocean and its inhabitants, the more we will know how to protect them. The film also highlights the Central Pacific islands of Palau, one of the most spectacular underwater habitats in the world, to show the beauty and potential of a healthy ocean. Narrated by Meryl Streep and featuring songs and music by Sting.For additional film information visit: http://macgillivrayfreeman.com/project/the-living-sea/

Ring of Fire
Showing August 12th through September 8th

Viewers of Ring of Fire will come heart-stoppingly close to the great circle of volcanoes and seismic activity that rings the Pacific Ocean. Spectacular volcanic eruptions are featured, including
Mount St. Helens, Navidad in Chile, Sakurajima in Japan, and Mt. Merapi in Indonesia. Extensive aerial photography and computer animation help tell the story of the geologic forces that impact the ring and the lifestyles of the people who dwell on its fiery boundary.For additional film information visit: http://macgillivrayfreeman.com/project/ring-of-fire/

Africa: The Serengeti
Showing Sept. 9th through Oct. 6th

(Originally Released 1994)

In a land where archaeologists have traced human life back two million years and where the indigenous Masai people tend cattle and maintain their unique customs, we are taken on an incredible journey into the wild Serengeti plains. Witness here a scene rarely seen by humans - The Great Migration. Follow more than two million wildebeests, zebras and antelope as they travel over 500 miles across the Serengeti. Filmed on location in Kenya and Tanzania, Africa: The Serengeti brings you spectacular vistas and dynamic aerials and features Africa's greatest predators - lions, crocodiles and cheetahs - in deadly pursuit of their migrating prey.
