This kid-friendly showcase is perfect for introducing your little ones to your favorite Beatles jams or just going down memory lane yourself with some friends and seeing just how many lyrics you remember.

Oscar Nominated Live Action Shorts

The Carolina Asheville

January 30 - February 1 | 5:45 & 10 p.m. | $7.50- $10

The Oscars are fast approaching and while we’re sure you’ve seen The Grand Budapest Hotel or Boyhood, here's your chance to check out moninees in a lesser known but equally honorable category – Live Action Shorts. The five short films will play back to back so you'll be all caught up when the big night rolls around. We especially love that you can grab a beer or wine and tasty snack before heading in to the theater. 


And if you feel like getting outta town for the Big Game...

Super Bowl Sunday at Lookout Brewing

Lookout Brewing in Black Mountain

February 1 | 6:30 p.m.

The Super Bowl would be nothing without great food and great beer and Lookout Brewing is clearly keeping that in mind this year. With a specially brewed Super Beer on tap during the game, you can get a pint for $3 while enjoying the big game projected on a 90-inch screen. And don’t miss out on the free chicken wings they will be serving!
