April showers bring May flowers… and so we begin the 4-week countdown to exams. What should you do to distress from the upcoming exams? Come out to Grafton! This month is going to be absolutely amazing with the movies we are bringing. To start out the month, we have Leap Year and Invictus.
At 7 PM the theater will go dark and we will be swept away into the story of Anna Brady, played by Amy Adams. Anna is a woman who is determined to propose to her boyfriend on February 29, Leap Day. However, a bad storm forces her plane to divert to Wales. In order to make it to Dublin on time, she hires an Irish innkeeper, Declan, to drive her across Ireland. On the way, the pair encounters many troubles and barely make it to Dublin on time. Once there, Anna’s boyfriend proposes…. but will she accept?
At 9:30 PM, we get to watch Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon in a drama that is sure to be a film to remember. The film follows the story of Nelson Mandela as he is released from prison and elected as President of South Africa. In order to bring his divided country together, Mandela places his support into the national rugby team- the Springboks. Mandela joins forces with captain Francois Pienaar (Damon) to rally the country and bring the un-ranked team to a World Cup win.
Let’s make this last month of classes worth it… and come out to Grafton! Tickets are $2.50 and popcorn is only 50 cents. The box office closes promptly at show time, so make sure you get there early!
