Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the hit Jack Black comedy!
Overly enthusiastic guitarist Dewey Finn (Black) gets thrown out of his band and finds himself in desperate need of work. Posing as a substitute music teacher at an elite private elementary school, he exposes his students to the hard rock gods he idolizes and emulates — much to the consternation of the uptight principal (Joan Cusack). As he gets his privileged and precocious charges in touch with their inner rock ‘n’ roll animals, he imagines redemption at a local Battle of the Bands.

Rhythm Changes Performance
Join student musicians from local nonprofit Rhythm Changes for a rock performance at 7pm before the evening screening!
Rhythm Changes is a local hands-on music program aimed at teaching young musicians how to perform and interact with other musicians. They offer one on one instruction, performance programs, music field trips, guest speakers, and work with a sister school in Haiti. They completely run on donations and want to bring out the inner musician in everyone. Check out rhythmchanges.org for more information.
