See Donald Sutherland in MILTON'S SECRET, Screening at River Street Theatre

In 2008, The New York Times called Eckhart Tolle "the most popular spiritual author in the United States." His bestsellers, The Power of Now and A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose have sold 20 million copies worldwide. Oprah Winfrey calls Tolle "a prophet for our times... essential spiritual readings." In speaking about The Power of Now, Deepak Chopra remarked, "Every sentence rings with truth and power."

This weekend (Thursday, August 31 and Friday & Saturday, September 1 & 2, all 7 pm) the River Street Theatre in Jaffrey will present the filmed adaptation of Tolle's novel (with Robert S. Friedman), Milton's Secret starring Donald Sutherland and Michelle Rodriguez.

Twelve-year-old Milton Adams (William Ainscough) feels his world is in crisis. With his parents (Mia Kirshner & David Sutcliffe) stressing about their careers and finances, and the neighborhood bully (Percy Hynes-White) tormenting him, he is constantly anxious. But when Milton's optimistic Grandpa (Donald Sutherland) comes to visit, he learns the secret to finding true happiness from a man who has seen the world and who has committed to living life in the 'now'.

SpiritualityandParactice.com calls Milton's Secret "A transformational film about a radiant octogenarian passing on his spiritual wisdom to his grandson."

Tickets for the Milton's Secret (Rated PG) are $8.00 (seniors, military, students, teachers $7.00). More program and schedule information, as well as ticket purchases, can be found at riverst.org or by calling the RST Box Office (603) 532-8888. The after-hours box office can be reached by calling OvationTix at (866) 811-4111.

The River Street Theatre is located in downtown Jaffrey, New Hampshire at 6 River Street. The River Street Theatre is sponsored by Grove Street Fiduciary, Coca-Cola, the Board of Trustees of the Park Theatre, Janet S. Grant, Betty Locke, Owen Houghton and the James F. & Fernande Kelly Charitable Trust.

The Park Theatre first opened in Jaffrey in 1922 and was the center of community life as a movie and vaudeville house for 54 years until it closed in 1976. Purchased by The Park Theatre, Inc. in 2006, it will be rebuilt as a state-of-the-art film and performing arts center, featuring two auditoriums seating 485, presenting movies, live theatre, including children's productions, concerts, and lectures as well as offering a place for business and community gatherings for the Monadnock Region and its 100,000 residents, school districts and dynamic artistic community. The new Park Theatre is scheduled to open in 2018.

The Park Theatre currently operates the River Street Theatre (RST), a small live entertainment and cinema venue, located adjacent to the construction site as an interim theatre until the new Park Theatre opens. Opened in January of 2017, the RST holds the title of "smallest theatre in New England." Visit www.theparktheatre.org for more information.
