$5 Movie Night Returns!!!!: Promised Land

It's back for 2013....$5 Tuesdays at Southpoint Cinemas. Happy New Year!

Promised Land is the new contemporary drama directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk). Matt Damon plays Steve Butler, an ace corporate salesman who is sent along with his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), to close a key rural town in his company's expansion plans. With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company's offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (John Krasinski), as well as the interest of a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt). Promised Land explores America at the crossroads where big business and the strength of small-town community converge.

Meet on the right-hand side of the lobby between 6:30 and 6:45. The movie starts at 7:00. Don't forget to get your loyalty card punched when you buy your ticket.


R, 1 hr. 46 min.

    Really 2.5 stars - it was OK, but not all that & a bag of chips :(

    Like these movies with lots of good discussion at the end. Not what you think when you go into this one. Good to see the movie regulars and meet some new members. Hope you'll continue to join us on Tuesdays if the $5 movie nights continue after the 17th when the theater switches to AMC.

      what if we went across to Cheesecake for coffee after the movie... it's hard to hear a discussion when we're all spread over the row..but seated at a table might be nice.. we'd still get home not too late..

      Coffee afterwards sounds worth a try, especially after an early movie, like next Tuesday's.

    Sorry for the no show. I was mixed up and thought this one was next week.

    I've already seen this movie and so will not attend. (it was great as well as thought provoking). I'm hoping we can do more meet-ups on other $5 Tuesdays!
