STUART - The Lyric Theatre will again present free movies in August, but the hottest month of the year begins by generating some in-house heat with an appearance by Australia's Thunder from Down Under. The male revue will put on two shows Aug. 1, at 6 and 8:30 p.m.
The popular group is a fixture at the Las Vegas Excalibur Hotel and Casino and been featured on "The View." The men dress, and that term is used loosely, as fantasy characters including Jack Sparrow from "Pirates of the Caribbean," a desperado from the Wild West and a fireman with his own heat.
There's music from a variety of decades, and it should come as no surprise that the show includes adult material.
The rest of the month is a little tamer, but the summer movie series includes classics from several eras.
11 Oscars. The film stars Charlton Heston as the rebellious Jew who takes on the Roman Empire, and features one of the greatest action scenes in the movies, the famed chariot races.
The film was also Brooks' Oscar-winning directorial debut.
