Think spring with these indoor events.
‘Mad as a Hatter’
Friday - Sunday
A London tailor finds his pleasant and simple life turned upside down when his best friend publishes a wild book about a young woman named Alice and her oddball adventures with a “Mad Hatter.” The character bears a striking resemblance to the tailor.

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays with a 5:30 p.m. show this Sunday. Tickets range from $13 to $25 at fmct.org.
