Opening Reception 5:30-7pm on March 5th.

The teachers believe in the Arts and know firsthand how important it is to have a means of expressing feelings, emotions, and how everyone sees the world. Each teacher has their own unique style of expression which brings a wealth of beauty to the art world and to Robeson County. For more information call 738-4339.

Cast: George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson. Look for a special live musical treat before the film! Presented and sponsored by the Carolina Civic Center, most of these recent (and a few classic) films were nominated for Academy awards and have not previously screened in Lumberton. Our recently renovated 1928 historic theater setting with 25- by 13-foot big screen and Bose sound system is the perfect clean, high-quality experience for a wonderful night out.
