The feature film on Monday, July 15, is an animated feature film about a video-game villain named Ralph, who longs to be known as the good guy. In an attempt to win a medal proving that he truly is a good guy, Ralph jumps from one arcade game to another, looking for opportunities to be the hero. Ralph’s special skill, however, is wrecking things, and he inadvertently creates chaos wherever he goes. When Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade, his only hope is to team up with a young trouble-making glitch from a candy-coated cart-racing game who just might be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a good guy. This film is rated PG. Showtime is 6:00 pm.
The special feature on Monday, July 22, is an action-adventure film starring Daniel Craig as James Bond.

The final movie of the month will be shown on Monday, July 29. This epic fantasy-adventure film adaptation is based on a popular novel by J.R.R. Tolkien. Bilbo Baggins is swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from a fearsome dragon. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of 13 dwarves led by a legendary warrior. Before reaching their goal, they must first escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever — Gollum. He gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities — a simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways that Bilbo cannot begin to foresee. This movie is rated PG-13. Showtime is 5:30 pm.
