The Pitch (Oct. 2 – 8)

Blood Moon to the Red Planet

We’re going astral this week at The Civic.  For those fortunate enough to catch the 5-minute total lunar eclipse in the wee hours on Sunday – good job.  For the rest of you, the red planet will be visible on the Civic screen for a whole 7-days.

based on a best-selling novel and commended for its accurate science,  The Martian (Rated PG), helmed by master director Ridley Scott with a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover opens on the break, October 2 – 8.  Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.
