A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck.

Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whiskey, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them on their journey.

This film only plays today! This is a Michigan premiere, featuring the Michigan Theater! Going Attractions celebrates the splendor and grandeur of the great cinemas of the United States, built when movies were the acme of entertainment and the stories were larger than life, as were the venues designed to show them. Thousands of seats, giant screens, exotic and ornate interiors with balconies and lounges, in-house organs and orchestras, amazing marquees, and air conditioning back when houses had none. The film also tracks the eventual decline of the palaces, through today’s current preservation efforts. A tribute to America’s great art form and the great monuments created for audiences to enjoy them in. 85 min. Documentary. NR The movie starts at 7:30 in the Michigan Theater Auditorium. I'll already be in the theater for a member event prior to the movie. I'll come out to the lobby at the bottom of the stairs at 7:20.
