"The Butler," the widely acclaimed movie about the life of Eugene Allen, White House butler to eight U.S. Presidents continues through Sept. 5 at The Harbor Theatre.

"The Butler," (PG13) plays evenings at 7 p.m. plus Sunday at 3 p.m., and tells the true story of a White House butler who served eight American Presidents over three decades (1952 to '86).

The film traces the dramatic changes that swept American society during this time, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected this man's life and family.

Forest Whitaker stars as the butler with an all-star cast including Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower, John Cusack as Richard Nixon, Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan, James Marsden as John F. Kennedy, Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson, and many more. Academy Award nominated Lee Daniels ("Precious") directs and co-wrote the script with Emmy-award winning Danny Strong ("Game Change").

Coming Sept. 6, a New York housewife struggles through a life crisis in Woody Allen's comedy "Blue Jasmine."
