Planes Trains and Automobiles Part of the FA-LA-LA Film Fest

Gorton’s FA-LA-LA FILM Fest presents

Easily excitable Neal Page is somewhat of a control freak. Trying to get home to spend Thanksgiving with his wife and kids, his flight is rerouted to a distant city in Kansas because of a freak snowstorm, and his sanity begins to fray. Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith, whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended destination.

Written and directed by John Hughes. Starring Steve Martin, John Candy and Laila Robins.

Doors open at 6:30pm, drinks & concessions available for purchase.

 

CINEMA SAFE

The John and Nancy Hughes Theater is a proud member NATO – the National Alliance of Theater Owners. NATO recently launched the “CinemaSafe” campaign, a program promoting protocols and guidelines developed and supported by leading epidemiologists to support a safe return to movie theaters. Gorton is proud to join more than 33,000 screens nationwide who have committed to implementing expert-backed, industry-specific health and safety protocols, including, but not limited to:

– Instituting a building mask policy (masks may be removed while sitting)
– Enforcing social distancing in our common areas and theater
– Reducing capacity in our theater (50 seats of the 309 seat theater)
– Enhancing building cleaning, and providing hand sanitizer stations
– Modifying concessions (including the elimination of communal food options)

CinemaSafe puts the health and safety of our patrons and staff at the core of our film presentations. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Gorton’s Director of Film, Rebecca Fons (rebecca@gortoncenter.org) with any questions. We’ll see you at the movies – safely!

Gorton Community Center will take and may use photos and videos from this event for its promotional purposes. Your attendance indicates your consent to the above.
