Bob Ross Painting Challenge: Can you keep up with the grand master of happy trees? Here's your chance to find out! You'll be provided with the necessary paints and tools to follow along on an episode of The Joy of Painting, attempting the same masterpiece that Bob lays out on screen. Laugh as everything descends into chaos and confusion under the smooth jazz and soothing voice of Mr. Ross. Cry when your painting looks nothing like what it's suppose to. Laugh again when you hang it up at home for all the world to see! After painting, catch our double feature while you let the paint dry.

Places for the Bob Ross Painting Challenge are VERY limited, so people wanting to participate have to sign up prior to the event. People can do so by paying and reserving a place at the Capitol Theater (office hours during the day vary, but the theater is open to the public every evening but Monday @ 6:30pm) or visiting the website www.silverbulletpictures.com/bob-ross.html.

Back Yard Slasher Double Feature - Are you a fan of bad, low budget independent film? Do you like Troma films? Then this is for you, and when we say bad, we mean BAD, and in the best ways. Featuring the two films Blood Orgy at Beaver Lake and Chubbies from Silver Bullet Pictures, an infamous inde studio based out of Detroit, MI. Grab a few friends and beers, you're going to need them. Heckling is not only encouraged, but expected. WARNING: due to scenes with nudity and excessive gore, children under 18 will not be permitted. Did I say nudity and gore? Yep, that's there too. So bad and offensive that it can't not be fun!
