Friday, August 10 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. -- SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN (2011) Starring Ewan McGregor, Amr Waked, and Emily Blunt; Rated PG-13; 107 minutes; Closed captioned for the hearing impaired.

When Britain’s leading fishing expert is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheikh’s vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary latches on to it as a ‘good will’ story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.

"A charming little movie." -- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

"Trust me: These are characters with whom it's a pleasure to spend a couple of hours." -- Lou Lumenick, New York Post
