Beaufort Picture Show - The Favourite

October 25, 2019 | 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Beaufort Picture Show is a non-profit organization formed to showcase a broad range of notable films that enrich lives, engage minds, and build community. Beaufort Picture Show is the premier destination for cinema and cultural events on the Crystal Coast.

The movie for this showing will be The Favourite:

The Favourite is a bawdy, acerbic tale of royal intrigue, passion, envy and betrayal in the court of Queen Anne in early 18th century England. At the center of the story is the Queen herself (Olivia Colman), whose relationship with her confidante, adviser and clandestine lover Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough (Rachel Weisz) is turned upside down by the arrival of the Duchess’s younger cousin Abigail (Emma Stone). Soon the balance of power shifts between the women as they jockey for influence with the Queen and the court.

Early show is at 5pm and the late who is at 8pm.

“If you must know more, his name is Beorn. He is very strong, and he is a skin-changer. ” -Gandalf

This fantastic event is the eighth in an annual Infusion Cafe series celebrating the Middle Earth of Tolkien… one feast at a time…

The journey will continues every October, taking us ever further down the path of adventure, until we and Bilbo find the treasure at the journey’s end…

Down East Folk Arts Society Concert - Jane Kramer

November 7, 2019 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
In keeping with our mission “To Build Community Through Music”, the Down East Folk Arts Society will once again be bringing World Class Singers/Songwriters to Craven County and the Crystal Coast of North Carolina this Fall. We are pleased to announce our 2019 Fall Concert Series which will  begin on September 11, 2019 and run each subsequent month through November 8, 2019.

Lauded by UK music reviewer Three Chords and the Truth as sounding like she was “…born to gypsy poets and raised by Emmylou Harris,” Asheville, North Carolina songstress Jane Kramer has garnered international recognition for the sultry, heartrending originality of her vocals and for the heavy-hitting lyrical eloquence of her songwriting. With deep roots in the musical traditions, culture and lore of her beloved Appalachia, Kramer’s songs are introspective, gracefully gritty and fiercely memorable. They elegantly sweep listeners down the gravel roads and southern coastal highways, midnight truck stops and lonely motel rooms of “hard learning” and lead home to the wooded Blue Ridge Mountains with moving acceptance of our flawed human experience. Kramer’s live performances are equally as poignant and engaging; rich with accessible, warm, often hilarious storytelling and gracefully lifting the veil between audience and performer.

Down East Folk Arts Society presents Jane at St. Claires Coffee house at St. Francis by the Sea Church. Drinks available before the show.

All shows are free but, donations are suggested.

Beaufort Picture Show - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

November 8, 2019 | 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Beaufort Picture Show is a non-profit organization formed to showcase a broad range of notable films that enrich lives, engage minds, and build community. Beaufort Picture Show is the premier destination for cinema and cultural events on the Crystal Coast.

The movie for this showing will be Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri:

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

Early show is at 5pm and the late who is at 8pm.

Beaufort Music Festival (BMF) is a community-supported, volunteer-run event put on by Beaufort Arts and Music, Incorporated, a 501c3 non-profit organization. For over 30 years, the free festival has taken place each May in historic Beaufort, and the town is packed on Friday and Saturday with locals and tourists alike enjoying the beautiful weather and some pretty great music.

This year’s festival will take place on the waterfront at Gallant’s Channel in Beaufort. There will be food trucks, vendors, beer tent and a kid’s area.

In an effort to eliminate single use plastics, the festival will not be serving drinks in plastic cups. In order to consume alcohol at the festival each patron will need to purchase a BMF Steel Pint. Please be sure to visit their website for more information.

The 2020 Big Rock Tournament will take place June 5-13, 2020 in Morehead City. Among the largest and oldest sport fishing tournaments in the country, The Big Rock calls avid deep-sea fishermen to North Carolina’s Crystal Coast for a full week of angling and community celebration. Over the course of the last half-century, many boats have docked here, many tourists have gathered here, and many Morehead City natives have come and gone. Our mission has always stayed the same: to represent the sport fishing community as superbly as only Morehead City can!
