The Theory of Everything (2014)
5 Academy Award Nominations including Best Picture.
Rated PG-13 (for some thematic elements and suggestive material)
Drama - 2 hr. 3 min.

Starring Eddie Redmayne ("Les Misérables") and Felicity Jones ("The Amazing Spider-Man 2"), this is the extraordinary story of one of the world's greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of - time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed. The film is based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, by Jane Hawking, and is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh ("Man on Wire"). (c) Focus.

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, "Big Hero 6" is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius-thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion-a robot named Baymax-and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Grand Junction Chapter’s Annual Banquet
March 16, 2015
Doors Open at 4pm, Dinner at 6pm
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation dinner and benefit auction at the Grand Junction Chapter’s Annual Banquet at the Two Rivers Convention Center. If we do not help conserve the landscapes, wildlife, and way of life we love, who will? But who says we can't stand strong for elk country and our hunting heritage -- and kick up a little dust in the process. So if you love the outdoors and enjoy having a great time with friends, come join us.

No one has more fun while ensuring the future of wild elk and our hunting heritage. The banquet doors will open at 4:00 pm. Starting off the evening will be a "social hour" where you'll be able to enjoy games, raffles, and our silent auction while having a drink with old friends. Our auctions and raffles are packed with top-shelf firearms, dream hunts, ideal home accents and a ton of old-fashioned fun. There’s a reason why the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation banquet is known as a great time for a great cause. Things tend to get a little lively and it only happens one night a year, so don’t miss it! Dinner and live auction will follow.

This year's banquet: Once again our ever-popular "Wall of Guns" will feature a large array of rifles, shotguns, pistols, muzzleloaders, and bows along with many other high quality items in our general raffle. The live and silent auctions will offer beautiful art, jewelry, outdoor and home decor, along with excellent hunts not only locally but US and International too.

But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide - unite or be destroyed.
