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.

To change that, Marsh gets approval from the Mayor to attempt to organize an unprecedented certified municipal-based Hotshot crew for Prescott. To that end, Marsh needs new recruits, which includes the young wastrel, Brendan McDonough, to undergo the rigorous training and qualification testing for the most dangerous of fire fighting duty. Along the way, the new team meets the challenge and the hailed Granite Mountain Hotshots are born. In doing so, all the men, especially McDonough, are changed as new experience and maturity is achieved in fire-forged camaraderie.
