At the Movies:

The Paramount Theater’s Summer Classic Film Series presents: The Coen Brothers 1987 classic, Raising Arizona.  Starring Nicolas Cage, Holly Hunter, Trey Wilson and John Goodman. Upon it’s release, it did not make it to blockbuster status, but since then has become a cult classic. Childless couple  H.I McDonnough (Nicolas Cage) and Edwina ‘Ed’ McDonnough’s (Holly Hunt) troubled path to “set things right” and the idiosyncratic dialogue throughout is a definite classic of shear comedic genius. Paramount Theater 9:15pm
