Movie Night

Join us for a free screening of “Predestination” on Saturday, June 2nd at 8 pm.

Made in Australia and released in 2014, this movie is based on a 1959 Short Story by Robert A. Heinlein called “– All You Zombies — “. So, written in the same era that brought us “Glen or Glenda”. The movie is extremely faithful to the story.

This movie involves Time Travel and was made in small part as an ‘response’ to “Looper.” This movie attempts to answer the age-old question, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” I do not recommend watching the trailer, nor reading the short story ahead of time, but you’re all adults, do what you want. 97 minutes, but it seems like longer to me. This is not an easy movie to watch. One character goes through a ‘medically necessary’ gender transition, I believe it’s explained well in the movie so I will not try here. I also think the adjustments the character has to make are handled as well as they can be in the circumstances. Certainly, I am not the best judge. There is sort of a ‘twist’ to the story, please if you know, don’t spoil it for others. This movie has moved and affected me like few others and I’ve seen over a dozen movies in my life. (Might be over 30, I haven’t been counting.)

As always, popcorn will be provided. Feel free to BYO drinks and food to enjoy and maybe share.
