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 $5, 1/20 – 1:00 & 8:00pm, 1/21 8:00pm.  315-253-6669
