Leadville Community Movie Night Friday, April 17
Leadville Community Movie Night continues this Friday, April 17 with the movie Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Rated PG-13.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
Doors open at 8 p.m. up at the college gym. Admission is free. Movie goers are welcome to bring their own snacks and (non-alcoholic) beverages (no glass).
