|NOW SHOWING SEPT 15 – SEPT 21
7:00 PM: THE GLASS CASTLE (Based on New York Times Best-selling Jeannette Walls’ memoir)
| THE GLASS CASTLE, based on the memoir of the same name by Jeanette Walls, is the big-screen adaptation of the New York Times best-book for 216 straight weeks. Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient & tight-knit family, THE GLASS CASTLE tells the story of a successful young woman (Brie Larson) who reflects on her unconventional upbringing at the hands of her artsy, nonconformist parents (Woody Harrelson & Naomi Watts), which sometimes resulted in the family living in poverty. Oscar winner Brie Larson brings Jeannette Walls’ best-selling memoir to life as a young woman who, influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father, found the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms. Now married to a man who works in finance (Max Greenfield) in New York, she faces criticism from her parents that she’s betrayed their values. Selfishness & sometimes abuse abound in her childhood, but then again so do hope & courage in the face of a turbulent upbringing. From the producer of the Academy Award & Golden Globe-winning movie THE BLIND SIDE, THE GLASS CASTLE is a must-see book adaptation where hopefulness & ambitions win in the end.
Stars Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson & Naomi Watts, Book adaptation/drama, PG-13 (Language), 120 Minutes
|7:30 PM: ALL SAINTS (New Must-see True Story Movie!)|
From the giant hit movie-makers Sony Pictures comes ALL SAINTS, based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, & a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all. After trading in his corporate sales career to become a pastor, Michael’s first assignment is All Saints, a quaint country church with very few members. The job comes with a catch: he is being sent to close the church doors for good & sell the prime piece of land on which it sits. While developers eagerly eye the property & the congregation mourns the inevitable, Michael & his family look forward to moving on to an established church where they can put down roots. But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming refugees from Burma – former farmers striving for a fresh start in America – Michael feels called to an improbable new mission. Toiling alongside the refugee people, the congregation attempts to turn their fertile land into a working farm to pay the church’s bills & feed its newest people. Jeopardizing his family’s future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all & provide much-needed hope to their new community.
Stars John Corbett & Cara Buono, Faith-based/True Story, PG, 110 Minutes
