- Auburn Public Theater, 8 Exchange St.
Auburn. Starring Kristin Scott
Thomas as an American journalist living in Paris, Sarah’s Key also goes back
and forth between events in 2002 and what happened 60 years earlier during the
city’s infamous Vélodrome d’Hiver roundup of July 16, 1942. On that date, French officials and police,
not Germans, rounded up 13,000 of the city’s Jews and herded them together for
days in horrible conditions in one of the city’s indoor bicycle-racing tracks
before dispatching them first to a transit camp and finally to Auschwitz. Tickets $5, 1/13 - 1:00 & 8:00pm, 1/14 -

January 20th & 21st – The Help – Auburn Public Theater, 8 Exchange
St., Auburn. “The Help” is an excellent
adaptation of the bestselling novel about an unlikely rebellion in a Southern
town in the 1960s among black maids serving white families and one white woman
who wants them to tell their life stories.
“The Help” is a delicious peppery stew of home-cooked, 1960s
Southern-style racism that serves up a soulful dish of what ails us and what
heals us. Laughter, which is ladled on thick as gravy, proves to be the secret
ingredient — turning what should be a feel-bad movie about those troubled times
into a heart-warming surprise. Tickets
