Upcoming Movie Nights:
September 12: September Edition Double Header
In the future, video game battles will be a matter of life or death…
Movie Night presents a series of tales from the cutthroat world of computer programming.
Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) is a software engineer who attempts to hack into his former employer’s system in order to prove that a former coworker has stolen his games and passed them off as his own. He is unaware that the company has created a malicious security program with a mind of it’s own. During an attempted break in at the facility, Kevin is caught hacking into the mainframe and, with the use of a lazer, translated into code and uploaded onto The Grid. Here he must fight, gladiator style, to save his life and make it out of the game.
Flash forward 20 years and Kevin’s son, Sam (Garrett Hedlund), goes searching for his missing father and finds himself pulled inside the same world of and gladiatoral games that his father has been surving in for decades. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant, Quora (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark upon a journey across a stunning cyber universe that has become more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. Meanwhile, the malevolent program that dominates the digital world plans to invade the real world and will stop at nothing to prevent their excape.
