Are you ready for a break from Holiday shopping? Then come join us for a fun outing with a movie and dinner for those who want to stop for a meal afterward! This one is getting rave reviews for the performance of Judi Dench as Philomena.
Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, PHILOMENA focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee, mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock - something her Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of - and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith, a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.
We will be going to see the 2:35 showing of this movie at the Marcus Point Cinema at Big Sky Drive, near Mineral Point Road & Highpoint Road. If you are interested in an early dinner after the show, (should be around 4:30) we have lots of options in the area. Those attending will make the decision about where to go for dinner.
Hope to see you there!
