Special After School Show: Friday, September 7 @ 2:45 pm
Saturday, September 8 @ 2 pm

Rated PG-13 (142 minutes)

**At each showing of The Hunger Games we will be collecting donations of canned and boxed non-perishable food items for the organization "End 68 Hours of Hunger". This organization is a private, not-for-profit effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning. We'll also gladly accept donations of new or gently-used backpacks (which are used to discreetly deliver the food to children at school).**

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. -- (C) Lionsgate
