This Week's Movie


This week, on May 27, 28, 29, June 1 at 7:30pm, we show Mr. Right.

Rating: 14A for pervasive coarse language and frequent genre violence.

Romantic Action. A girl (Anna Kendrick) falls for the perfect guy (Sam Rockwell), who happens to have a very fatal flaw: he's a hitman on the run from the crime cartels who employ him, and he kills the people who hire him instead of the intended targets. --IMDb, Wikipedia

Our next movies are:

Next week, on June 3, 4, 5, 8 at 7:30pm, we show Batman v Superman.

Rating: PG for frequent genre violence and some frightening scenes.

Superhero Action. Eighteen months after the destructive battle with General Zod in Metropolis in the climax of the previous movie, Man of Steel, Superman (Henry Cavill) has become a controversial figure. Some worship him as a god, while others, including Batman (Ben Affleck), fear his actions if he is left unchecked. Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) has his own contingency plans, including bioengineering an anti-Superman weapon. --Wikipedia, IMDb
