Enjoy first-run Academy Award winning films in the newly renovated Historic Jones Theater in Westcliffe, Colorado. At the end of 2014, we replaced the old “Peerless” carbon-arc 32-mm film projector with a state-of-the art digital projector. Another improvement is the installation of a hearing loop in the Jones Theater auditorium so that people wearing hearing aids can enjoy movies, plays, and music in the theater without distortion. For information about the hearing loop and how to use it, please click here: Hearing loop information.

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as “human computers”, we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history’s greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.
