Continuing through Feb. 14 is "Stan and Ollie," a tribute to famous comedy duo Laurel and Hardy. The film follows the pair's bittersweet final bow as they embark on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953.

With their golden era of comedy behind them, Laurel (played by Steve Coogan) and Hardy (John C. Reilly), face an uncertain future as they try to reignite their film careers. The movie captures the pair's journey as they reconnect with fans, confront the past and realize the depth of their partnership.
