FARGO THEATRE www.fargotheatre.org for show times OR to donate $$$ for digital • On the Road (R) – Based on Jack Kerouac’s beloved novel, On The Road follows three young people as they travel across the country encountering a mix of people who each impact their journey and lives indelibly. • Quartet (PG-13) – Beecham House is abuzz. The rumor circling the halls is that the home for retired musicians is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it’s a star. For Reginald Paget (Tom Courtenay), Wilfred Bond (Billy Connolly) and Cecily Robson (Pauline Collins), this sort of talk is par for the course at the gossipy home. But they’re in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean Horton (Maggie Smith). Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard. Can the passage of time heal old wounds? And will the famous quartet be able to patch up their differences in time for Beecham House’s gala concert? • Classic Film Series- Forbidden Planet (1956) – Thus 4/11, 7:30 pm. $8 PLAINS ART MUSEUM www.plainsart.org • Andy Warhol: Creating Myth & Icon. – now through May 19.
