HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE. Dark, gleefully funny, and beautifully shot, this adaptation of J.K. Rowling's novel should please fans. In this sixth film in the series, Harry's (Daniel Radcliffe) inevitable confrontation with the dark wizard Voldemort grows closer, and Hogwarts headmaster Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) wants the young student to be prepared. He guides Harry through a memory of a young Voldemort, but an important moment is missing. Harry must extract this memory from the new Hogwarts teacher, Horace Slughorn (a perfectly slimy Jim Broadbent), who is as eager for fame as he is reluctant to revisit this painful moment. Meanwhile, romance rules the school of witches and wizards, with Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) refusing to admit their feelings for each other. Harry also harbors a secret love of his own: Ron's younger sister, Ginny (Bonnie Wright). But despite his crush, Harry keeps an eye on Snape (Alan Rickman) and Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton), who may be responsible for attacks on the school. HALF-BLOOD PRINCE deftly balances the humor of Hogwarts heartbreak and the thrills of dark villains attacking the school. The cast is as talented as ever, and the youngest members--Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson--have developed their talent well. However, this film is most remarkable for its fine cinematography from AMELIE director of photography Bruno Delbonnel. Using a muted palette, Delbonnel makes Hogwarts look hauntingly beautiful in a way that fans have never seen. There's always plenty of fun and adventure in the series, but this entry boasts impressive visuals as well.

Mountain Ridge High School, Frostburg
Purchase Tickets
Adults $26, Under 17 $18, FSU Employee $18, FSU Student $3
Transportation provided for FSU students

Harper Lee's 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel comes to life, as The Montana Repertory Theatre presents "To Kill A Mockingbird." This classic American story, set in the 1930s, tells the tale of a sleepy Southern town that is rocked with scandal when a young black man is accused of raping a white woman. Atticus Finch, an attorney and widow of two young children, stands against his fellow townspeople by defending the accused man. The full-length play focuses on Atticus' heroic battle, as well as the growth and development of the Finch children as they watch prejudice and racism erupt in their community. The play offers high drama, wit and hope as the characters explore themes that are still relevant today.

"From the opening to the closing standing ovation, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' was powerful and gripping ..."
-The Chieftain, Pueblo, Colorado
