The Lake Theatre has a bonanza of Oscar hopefuls on display this holiday weekend. Unfortunately, you missed a good one in Loving, the film about the landmark interracial marriage case from 1967, which only stayed two weeks at The Lake.

Now, however, in addition to the latest Star Wars spectacular, you can sample La La Land (Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone with lots of dancing and singing) and Fences (Denzel Washington's

take on August Wilson's play) which will open on Christmas Day.

Meanwhile, Passengers (Jennifer Lawrence, lost in space) and Sing (more singing and dancing, but this time with animated critters) arrived on Tuesday.

Now that's entertainment.
