Middle of Nowhere

1hr 39min - Rated R - Drama FILM STARTS AT 7:15P

Director: Ava DuVernay - Cast: David Oyelowo, Tracie Thoms, Sharon Lawrence, Omari Hardwick, Dondre Whitfield As Ruby rides a bus through the inner city streets, she wills herself to push away memories that crowd her. Four years earlier, she was a vibrant medical student married to the love of her life, Derek.

Now, she makes her way to the maximum security prison on the outskirts of town. This is where her love now resides. As the couple stares into the hallow end of an eight-year prison sentence, Ruby must learn to live another life, one marked by shame and separation. But through a chance encounter with bus driver Brian and a stunning betrayal, she is soon propelled in new and often frightening directions of self-discovery. As we chronicle her turbulent yet transformative journey, we witness the emergence of a broken woman made whole.

WE WILL MEET AT 6:30P IN THE THEATER LOBBY TO LINE UP TO GET SEATS TOGETHER, AND MEET & GREET. BUY YOUR TICKET WHEN YOU ARRIVE, SEATS ARE NOT RESERVED. ROBIN T WILL HAVE A MEETUP SIGN [masked]

Try to find street meter parking, even validation in the theater parking lot is around $16 for 4hrs. Or take public transportation. There will be a discussion in the concession area after the film if you are able to stay.
