9 to 5 Screening for Dolly Parton's Birthday!
Asheville Community Theatre – We love strong, passionate, intelligent women like the incredible Dolly Parton, so come celebrate her birthday with us with a special screening of the empowering classic movie, "9 to 5"! Dolly's birthday is January 19th, but we're celebrating it a day early by showing the movie and having everyone sign a huge birthday card that we'll send to her. Also, we will have a drawing for tickets to Asheville Community Theater's upcoming stage production of "9 to 5" as a gift to you! All tickets are only $3.00. We expect this 7:00pm show to sell out so buy tickets now online or at our Merrimon Avenue location! We are also showing the movie at 12:00pm, but are not selling online tickets for that screening which we do not expect to sell out. The 12:00pm tickets are available for purchase the day before on January 17th. MOVIE SYNOPSIS: Franklin Hart is the biggest 'sexist egotistical lying hypocritical bigot' boss on the planet. He thrills in taking advantage of his head female office staff; humiliating, downplaying, and condescending against them whenever conveniently possible, particularly his top assistant Violet (Lily Tomlin). Long exhausted over his gruesome bullishness, Violet, alongside coworkers Doralee (Dolly Parton) and Judy (Jane Fonda) comprise comical methods of "doing him in", when a freak incident occurs. They then manage to kidnap Hart and trap him in his own house, while assuming control of his department, and productivity leaps. But just how long can they keep him tied up? CONTENT GUIDELINES: Rated PG-13 for Drug-Related Humor, Innuendo and some Adult Language including sh*t, *ss and and a few godd*mns. It is typical 1980s movie language.

Carolina Bound at One World Brewing
One World Brewing – "Sometimes an artist’s name is right on the money. Having been a frequent traveler through the Carolinas, there is an immediate image conjured up when this moody, haunting version of country folk starts filling up the room. You can see and feel the influence of the Blue Ridge Mountains on Chris Smith, lead singer-songwriter and core creative force of Carolinabound. The simplicity of the songwriting is refreshing, and they're incredibly easy to listen to, especially on a lazy weekend afternoon. Smith’s vocals are vulnerable, sweet and melancholic in their delivery of lyrics steeped in country and folk traditional topics of love, loss and life experiences. There is nothing groundbreaking in that, just the comfort of knowing this troubadouresque type of performer continues to work in the background while trends fade in and out." -Heidi Drockelman(indie-music.com) "Imagine if Gram Parsons and Townes Van Zandt got together with Will Oldham on a late spring evening to sing songs late into the night. There's an honest sentiment to these songs that rings clear and creates an atmosphere of wistful nostalgia that quickly covers everything in a comforting cocoon of memory and experience." -Joshua Pickard(nooga.com)
