Shows are presented at the Tivoli Theatre, 5021 Highland Ave., Downers Grove. Attend one or both of these fantastic movies:

Echo in the Canyon
Monday, August 5 at 7:30 pm
"Echo In The Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA’s Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound.

Wild Nights with Emily
Monday, August 19 at 7:30 pm
"In the mid-19th century, Emily Dickinson (Molly Shannon) is writing prolifically, baking gingerbread, and enjoying a passionate, lifelong affair with her friend and sister-in-law Susan...yes this is the iconic American poet, popularly thought to have been a reclusive spinster. While seeking publication of some of the 1,775 poems written during her lifetime, Emily finds herself facing a troupe of male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously. Instead her work attracts the attention of an ambitious woman editor, who also sees Emily as a convenient cover for her own role in buttoned-up Amherst's most bizarre love triangle" (
