Sneak Peek - Lions for Lambs Oct. 28
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
ZPN is showing an advanced preview of Lions for Lambs featuring Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise in a Robert Redford directed film.

The movie starts at 8pm and seats are available on a first come first serve basis.

Lions for Lambs begins after two determined students at a West Coast University, Arian (Derek Luke) and Ernest (Michael Pena), follow the inspiration of their idealistic professor, Dr. Malley (Robert Redford), and attempt to do something important with their lives. But when the two make the bold decision to join the battle in Afghanistan, Malley is both moved and distraught. Now, as Arian and Ernest fight for survival in the field, they become the string that binds together two disparate stories on opposite sides of America. In California, an anguished Dr. Malley attempts to reach a privileged but disaffected student (Andrew Garfield) who is the very opposite of Arian and Ernest. Meanwhile, in Washington D.C. the charismatic Presidential hopeful, Senator Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise), is about to give a bombshell story to a probing TV journalist (Meryl Streep) that may affect Arian and Ernest's fates.

Singer Nick Motil Oct. 30
7:17 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
This singer-songwriter is destined for success; and so far, he’s done it all on his own. Sharing the spotlight with artists Jason Mraz, Chantal Kreviazuk, The Verve Pipe, Keller Williams, Everclear, The Calling, Duncan Sheik and others, Nick has sold over 5,000 copies of his music in just over two years. Three albums in three years and hundreds of shows later, Nick Motil is just getting warmed up. He creates songs you can relate to. His songs take you to a place you’ve never been, but feel like you’ve lived there all your life. His live performances capture you, draw you in, and make you sing along…even if you’re unsure of the words. The humor Nick displays on stage breaks the ice to an evening-long conversation in which the stage becomes a living room. Kick off your shoes and enjoy. After all, “everything’s better barefoot.”
