The senior center will be showing the following movies at 12:15 p.m.:

Sept. 11 – “Stan and Ollie”

This movie is about Laurel and Hardy – the world’s greatest comedy team – who face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them.

Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953.

The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.

Sept. 25 – “Rocket Man,” an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years.

Research your roots through Ancestry.com with Albert P. Heydt 1-4 p.m. Sept. 6, 13, 20 and 27.

Learn how to trace your family tree.
