In the weeks and months to come, there will be a variety of movies and programming at the historic Ashland Theater. The Town of Ashland now owns the theater, as a result of it generously being donated by Jean and A.D. Whittaker, and plans are afoot to restore this beautiful theater. While those plans are taking shape, a local group of volunteers are running the theater and helping create some energy and support for this important project.

Feb 13 Sat 2pm & 7:30pm Documentary ‘UNBRANDED’ with Host Tom Seay! Benefit for United States Equine Rescue League, Inc.


Documentary Synopsis:  Four young Cowboys hatch an outrageous plot to adopt, train, and ride a string of wild mustangs 3,000 miles from Mexico to Canada through the wildest terrain of the American West. The trip became an epic journey of self-discovery, tested friendships, and iconic landscapes that included runaway horses, a sassy donkey, perilous mountain passes, rodeos, sickness, injury, and death. The Audience Award winner at Telluride Mountain film and Hot Docs Film Festival, Unbranded is a soaring tale of danger and resilience, an emotionally charged odyssey that shines a bright light on the complex plight of our country’s wild horses.

Two showings: Feb 13th – 2pm & 7:30pm.  Tickets:  $10  Donations greatly appreciated!

Cash bar for the evening showing

Guest Speaker: Tom Seay, host of ‘Best of America by Horseback’ will be available for meet-n-greet prior to each showing and will introduce the film
