Movie Matinees

            Wednesday, April 5, at 1:30 we will be showing the film Fences.  The jacket of the DVD states that “some people build fences to keep people out and other people build fences to keep people in.” Starring Academy Award winners Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, the story takes place in Pittsburgh in the 1950s. Washington is a former Negro-league baseball player who strives to provide for his family in spite of outside forces that threaten to push him down and “build fences around him.”

April 12 at 1:30 we will show Patriots Day.  Boston native Mark Wahlberg shines in this all-star action-thriller that chronicles the courage and power of the people of Boston during the real-life manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers.  Even those of us in Epsom were caught up in the terror of the bombing and the drama of the chase for the bombers.  This film is rated R for language.

What About Bob, a comedy starring Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss, will be shown on April 19, at 1:30 p.m. “In this comedy about a doctor-patient relationship pushed way beyond the office, Bill Murray plays Bob Wiley, a neurotic New Yorker struggling with a whirlwind of paralyzing phobias. When an exasperated colleague pawns the handful off on Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss), the psychologist has no idea his last appointment will follow him north to New Hampshire on a month’s vacation. Bob takes to Dr. Marvin’s latest book like no therapy before it, so the well-meaning pest tracks Marvin down at his lakeside summer home to further discuss his problems” (Rotten Tomatoes)
