Mid-Week Movie: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Date: Wednesday, November 21, 2018
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for the hilarious Thanksgiving travel movie starring Steve Martin and John Candy. This Mid-Week Movie will be a benefit for the Hardwick Area Food Pantry. Bring a non-perishable food item or a donation for admission.



Easily excitable Neal Page (Steve Martin) is somewhat of a control freak. Trying to get home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his wife (Laila Robins) 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 (John Candy), whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended destination.

Rated R, Run time: 1 hr and 33 min. $5 suggested donation or bring a non-perishable food item.
