Captain Phillips

Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is — through director Paul Greengrass’s distinctive lens — simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips’ unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.

Showtime is 12:05pm.

    I wonder why this movie has such a poor turnout?

      This theater has gone downhill after being bought out. After seeing a movie there two weeks ago, I swore I'd never go back. They fired 80% of the staff and they have only a single concession area now, which only serves stale premade popcorn. HORRIBLE experience for what used to be my "home" theater. Cinemark is the only way to go now... you'll see, unfortunately.

      I've created the event. You might want to converse with folks under that event and narrow it down to one or two films for this group.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
