The Frostburg Palace Theatre located on Main Street in Frostburg will screen the documentary "Bright Star" on Friday, January 15th and Saturday 16th.

In Jane Campion's "Bright Star," a half-educated but boldly self-possessed and talented beauty named Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish) captures first the admiration and then the love of a tubercular young poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw).

Show time is 8 PM. The doors and concession stand open at 7:30 PM. For more information contact the theater at (301) 687- 0921 or visit the ...
