Planes, Trains & Automobiles at the Arlington Drafthouse 11/14 at 7:30PM

Comedy Film Bucket List Meetup Members who RSVP'd get FREE ADMISSION!

Doors Open 6:30PM

For those who despise holiday travel - Planes, Trains & Automobiles is a Comedy Classic. Just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday, Join Steve Martin & John Candy for a humorous nightmare as the two try to get home to their families for the Holiday. John Hughes directs this film, which makes us laugh as well as warms the heart. "Those aren't pillows!"... Before you kick the bucket - you must see this comedy. If you have already seen it - you must see it again... with us!

About the Movie:
(R) (98 min) En route to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his family, easily annoyed businessman Neal Page (Steve Martin) finds his first-class plane ticket has been demoted to coach, and he must share his flight with obnoxious salesman Del Griffith (John Candy). A sudden snowstorm in Chicago forces the plane to land in Wichita. Unable to find a room in any of the four-star hotels, Neal is compelled to accept Del's invitation to share his accommodations in a cheapo-sleazo motel. There's a bumpy time ahead as the mismatched pair make their way back to Chicago, first in a balky train, then by way of a refrigerator truck. We know from the outset that the oil-and-water Neal and Del will be bosom companions by the end of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, but it's still a fun ride.

Just RSVP and you and your guest (if you opted to bring one) get in for free and will have your name on the VIP list.
