I, TONYA
Dayton's own Allison Janney received an Oscar Nomination for "Best Supporting Actress" for her role as Tonya Harding's mother in this jaw-dropping film. "Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie's I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked -- and checkered -- glory." CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM.

Synopsis
All of this year's Animated Oscar Nominated Short Films can be found in one place (plus a few extra "honorable mentions" to round out the pack). This year's films come from the USA, UK and France, and every film has already been racking up awards around the world. Don't miss them on the big screen! Though this collection of films does not officially have a MPAA rating, we would consider it to be PG (most of the shorts would be G rated, but the very end of GARDEN PARTY has some disturbing imagery of a human corpse that could be upsetting to younger viewers. Kids eight and over should be fine..though adults are going to love them).

Synopsis (Junior Leaguers Club of Dayton)
The Junior Leaguers Club of Dayton is preparing for their sixth annual fundraiser at THE NEON. This event will raise money for scholarships for local graduating high school seniors. LEMONADE MAFIA, a light-hearted short comedy for all ages, will precede the film QUEST, a powerful documentary filmed over the course of a decade. QUEST is the moving portrait of the Rainey family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, Christopher "Quest" Rainey, and his wife, Christine'a "Ma Quest" raise a family while nurturing a community of hip hop artists in their home music studio. It's a safe space where all are welcome, but this creative sanctuary can't always shield them from the strife that grips their neighborhood. This film was nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for "Best Documentary Feature." Tickets are $30 for adults which includes the movie, a glass of wine, soda, and self serve popcorn. Student tickets are $15 and include the movie, soda, and popcorn. Retired music teacher James White will lead a post-screening discussion. This event will take place on Saturday, February 24 at Noon.
