Marcus Theatres offers big screen alternative programs

Sometimes, even with huge flat screens at home, things just look better on the big screen. Marcus Theatres has taken that feeling to heart with the Theatre Entertainment Network.

"Special programming – such as live events, classical music, opera, ballet, theater, even classic movies – is much more impactful when presented on the big screen in a theater venue. There is also a large, under-served audience very interested in seeing these kind of events," said Rolando Rodriguez, president and CEO of Marcus Theatres Corporation.

"While we’ve offered alternate entertainment for years, establishing the Theatre Entertainment Network allows us to significantly increase the number of non-traditional entertainment options and provide a truly eclectic array of entertainment options on the big screen available to our guests."

The programs offered include concerts, opera performances, indie films, comedy showcases and classic or cult-favorite movies. One screen at each of the participating theaters is set aside for alternative programs, ones that are not the normal rotation of national releases. You can find all of the offerings online at theatreentertainmentnetwork.com.

Area theaters are: Majestic Cinema, Brookfield; Menomonee Falls Cinema, Menomonee Falls; Renaissance Cinema, Sturtevant; Saukville Cinema, Saukville; South Shore Cinema, Oak Creek; North Shore Cinema, Mequon; Hillside Cinema, Delafield; Cedar Creek Cinema, Rothschild; and Ridge Cinema, New Berlin.

Unstoppable: Live Event with Kirk Cameron

Investigating the moral origins of good and evil, Kirk Cameron returns to the big screen to present a big picture view of how we can live our lives in the face of adversity. Attempting to answer the question, "why do bad things happen to good people?" Kirk addresses why the existence of evil is necessary and ties it back to narratives from the Old and New Testaments.

Hasselbeck joins "Fox & Friends" crew on Monday

On Monday morning, the "Fox & Friends" show on the Fox News Network will undergo a transformation. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, former "Survivor" contestant and long-time host on ABC’s "The View," is joining the cast.

She will join co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on a redesigned set.

"In her new role on the network’s signature morning program, Hasselbeck, will interview key newsmakers, celebrities and politicians. Additionally, along with her co-hosts, she will provide viewers with a combination of lively topical discussions and casual and spontaneous dialogue while highlighting the latest headlines of the day," Fox News Channel said in a press release.

For 15 years, "Fox & Friends" has been the main morning program for the network, that runs 7 to 10 a.m. locally. The show is built in the same vein as most network morning news shows that also features interviews with celebrities, athletes and political heavyweights.

Additionally, each hour of the show offers reports on general news, sports, weather, politics, business and entertainment and, from time to time, includes regular stunts and musical performances on set and outside the studio.

"Joining the Fox News family is the equivalent of growing up as a Boston Red Sox fan or a Yankees fan and getting asked to play for the team … I’m just beyond thrilled to be on," Hasselbeck said in a Fox News Insider report.

This week, Hasselbeck, Doocy and Kilmeade will share the time they spent with Korie, Willie, and Kay "Miss Kay" Robertson of "Duck Dynasty." The group took a trip to Louisiana for a tour of the Duck Commander headquarters, learned to make duck calls, ate dinner with the cast and took in a cooking lesson.
