Join us for one of this years most acclaimed films, a sure contender for Best Picture.
12 Years a Slave is based on an incredible true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life. Also starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano and Paul Giamatti, directed by Steve McQueen.
Dinner and discussion will follow at The Imperial Restaurant (431 S. Broadway)
Given our recent experiences with Landmark Theaters, I'll do my best to confirm the show time and adjust our time if necessary. Currently, I am looking to do the 3:30 show at the Mayan. The movie runs 2hrs 15 min, so don't want to start much later.
I'll send an email to those who've RSVP'd and on the waiting list on Tuesday evening to confirm the time of showing.
