Support John Sayles' GO FOR SISTERS Cancelled due to weather

Let's support the opening of John Sayles' latest flick!
Go For Sisters is the 18th feature film written and directed by independent cinema pioneer John Sayles.

Bernice (LisaGay Hamilton) and Fontayne (Yolonda Ross) grew up so close people said they could “go for sisters”, but time sent them down different paths. Twenty years later, those paths cross: Fontayne is a recovering addict fresh out of jail, and Bernice is her new parole officer.

When Bernice’s son Rodney goes missing on the Mexican border, his shady associates all in hiding or brutally murdered, Bernice realizes she needs someone with the connections to navigate Rodney's world without involving the police… and turns to her old friend. The pair enlist the services of disgraced ex-LAPD detective Freddy Suárez (Edward James Olmos) and plunge into the dim underbelly of Tijuana, forced to unravel a complex web of human traffickers, smugglers, and corrupt cops before Rodney meets the same fate as his partners.

As much a story of relationships as a story of crime, GO FOR SISTERS is a welcome return to the border for master filmmaker and two-time Academy Award nominee John Sayles (“Lone Star,” “Passion Fish”).

    Snow is coming down pretty heavily now. I haven't heard from anyone who wants to go so I'm going to cancel this one. If you do go to see the movie tonight or this week, send me a photo of your ticket stub and I'll mail you a mini poster for the film.
    My apologies

    It's almost noon and it hasn't yet snowed. says 2"-4" beginning at Noon. Since I'll already be in Center City for the Nostalgia screening at the African-American Museum, it's not a big deal to head over to Cherry Hill for the movie at 7:20. So it's on (sorry for the false alarm). I hope you can come out. I'lll have a couple GO FOR SISTERS posters to give away. Please call me if you plan to come out and want to meet earlier for dinner at Ruby Buffet.

    The weather forecast is not good for tomorrow -- Snow followed by freezing rain. If the weather is indeed that bad tomorrow, our meetups will be cancelled. The movie theater will be open but I don't want to be responsible for anyone getting in an accident to see a movie.

    But please check this space to double-check before heading out.

    Thanks always,

    Actual Showtime is 7:20pm and the movie runs 2 hours. We might not have enough time to meet for dinner. I'll likely be in Cherry Hill earlier, right after the Nostalgia screening lets out. Let me know if you want to meet for an early dinner, still at Ruby Buffet.
