Czech Film Night
The Czech Heritage Museum and The Beltonian Theatre will present “In The Shadow (Ve Stinu)” for the Czech Film Night series at 7 p.m. Tuesday at The Beltonian, 219 E. Central Ave. in Belton. Admission is free. Donations will be accepted.
The 2012 film was selected as the Czech entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards.
“In The Shadow” opens in the style of a film noir from the 1950s, with handsome, dark-toned cinematography (by Adam Sikoba) of a couple of crooks stealing a cache of jewels. When the police come in to investigate, Captain Hakl (Trojan) suspects that something more than a simple robbery is involved. The movie is not rated, but this film is not suitable for children as there are moments of offensive language and some violence, typical of a detective, crime film.
Milam Community Theater auditions
The Milam Community Theater will hold auditions for its upcoming children’s theater production of “Peter Pan” 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the Lester and Beatrice Williams Event Center, 404 S Columbus Ave. in Cameron.
