Whitwell, Tennessee is a tiny, rural town nestled in the mountains of Tennessee. The population is almost exclusively white and Christian. In 1998, the children of Whitwell's middle school took on an inspiring project, launched out of their principal's desire to help her students open their eyes to the diversity beyond their insulated vally. What happened would change the students, their teachers, their families and the entire town forever... and eventually open hearts and minds around the world.

Expressionist master F. W. Murnau directed this chilling vampire film, the first cinematic interpretation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Max Schreck's riveting portrayal of the titular character Count Orlok and Murnau's moody direction result in a silent era horror classic. Count Orlok, the rodent-like vampire, is perhaps the most animalistic screen portrayal of a vampire ever filmed. The design was copied by Werner Herzog in his 1970 remake of this film and by Tobe Hooper for his telefilm of Stephen King's Salem's Lot that same year. Nosferatu is a 1922 silent film.

First Descent
Rated PG-13

Five of the world's best snowboarders are taken to the mountains of Valdez, Alaska for some outrageous "Big Mountain" rides. This documentary chronicles the rebellious, inspiring and sometimes controversial rise of snowboarding - as seen through the eyes of the snowboarders setting the standards and breaking the boundaries of this worldwide phenomenon. A thriller for all sports enthusiasts and especially for those "extreme" sports fans.

Super Size Me
Rated PG-13

Why are Americans so fat? Find out in Super Size Me, a tongue-in-cheek and burger-in-hand look at the legal, financial and physical costs of America's hunger for fast food. During this film's journey, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock puts his own body on the line, living on nothing but McDonald's for an entire month - no exceptions. It all adds up to a fat food bill, harrowing visits to the doctor, and compelling viewing for anyone who's ever wondered if man could live on fast food alone.

A chronicle which provides a rare window into the international perception of the Iraq War, courtesy of Al Jazeera, the Arab world's most popular news outlet. Roundly criticized by Cabinet members and Pentagon officials for reporting with a pro-Iraqi bias, and strongly condemned for frequently airing civilian casualties as well as footage of American POWs, the TV station has revealed (and continues to show the world) everything about the Iraq War that the public doesn't always see.

The Chorus
Rated PG-13
March 8, 2007 7:00 pm

In 1949 Monsieau Clement, an assistant teacher, comes to a school for "difficult" boys. The school is run by a hard minded principal. The motto of the school is "Action - ReAction". But this method isn't working, as there are a lot of problems and problem children. Monsieau Clement tries to reach his boys and build trust and true order through music. The Chorus is a French film with English subtitles.
