Time flies when magic is involved. It has been over a year since illusionist Timothy James has performed at the Rheem Theatre in Moraga. James' shows in 2017 amazed Lamorinda residents with six sell-out performances. His sleight-of-hand artistry, knack for reading thoughts, predicting futures, and uncovering strange coincidences that defy explanation, will astonish all in attendance.
James has performed for Fortune 500 companies, cruise ships, comedy clubs and performing art centers across the country. He's also entertained celebrities such as Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis, movie star Shia LaBeouf, Journey bass guitarist Ross Valory, and the Oakland A's.
He is the winner of numerous awards for sleight of hand and variety entertainment including the Lance Burton Award of Excellence from the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas.
Get ready for an unbelievable, hilarious evening with James. The 6 p.m. show is for the younger kids and the youngest at heart, while the 8 p.m. show will be geared toward teens and above. Both shows will be fun for the whole family. Tickets can be purchased at the Rheem Theatre box-office or online at www.lamorindatheatres.com.
"The House with a Clock in Its Walls" starts this week at the Rheem Theatre with a preview screening at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20. The movie is based on a Gothic horror children's novel first published in 1978. Lewis Barnavelt, after losing his parents, is sent to Michigan to live with his Uncle Jonathan. He discovers his uncle is a warlock and Lewis enters a world of magic and sorcery. But this power is not limited to good people: Lewis learns of Isaac Izard, an evil wizard who wanted to cause the Apocalypse so that he could see what happened afterward. To do this, he constructed a magical clock using black magic that will keep ticking until it reaches Doomsday. The wizard died before he could finish the clock, but he hid it in his house, which is where Uncle Jonathan and Lewis now live. They must find the clock before it's too late and before Isaac's wife, Selena, finds it.
"The House with a Clock in Its Walls" is rated PG and is a perfect Halloween movie for all ages!
