What a week… 90 degrees each day and not a cloud in sight. Absolutely beautiful! We are getting closer to the end of the semester- a bittersweet time for all students. This weekend Grafton is putting on some awesome events! Our regular Grafton movies are at 7 PM and 9:30 PM, Youth in Revolt and The Young Victoria respectively. This Sunday is our last matinée of the semester- Avatar!
At 7- Youth in Revolt is the newest Michael Cera movie. Cera plays Nick Twisp, who falls in love with a beautiful girl while on vacation. Nick Twisp is a boy who takes on multiple personalities and has many misadventures while following the girl- Sheeni- around. At 9:30- The Young Victoria is a dramatization of the life of Queen Victoria after her coronation and her relationship with Prince Albert during the 1830s.
The real icing on the cake though is our matinée. Sunday at 3:00 PM, Grafton will be showing Avatar. After his brother is killed, a paraplegic Marine Jake Sully signs on to take his place during a mission to Pandora- a world with strange creatures and a separate race of beings called the Na’vi. In exchange for the intel services that Sully is providing, the military repairs his damaged spinal cord. During his stay on this world, Sully falls in love with a Na’vi native- Neytiri. Sully is forced to make a decision as the military of Earth begin their final stages of conquest.
It is sure to be a fun-filled weekend at Grafton… as the theater will be blacked out! With a black-light rainforest, fluorescent paint, and reduced ticket prices- who can resist? There may even be a few blue people running around…
