Now in its second week at the Varsity Theatre is the much anticipated family drama GIFTED.
This charming drama stars Chris Evans as Frank Adler — a single man raising a child prodigy — his spirited young niece Mary (McKenna Grace). Frank’s plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank’s formidable mother (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her grand-daughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary.
Academy Award nominee from “Hidden Figures,” Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary’s landlady and best friend. Jenny Slate is Mary’s teacher, Bonnie, a young woman whose concern for her student develops into a connection with her uncle as well.
GIFTED is a riveting, entertaining and moving film. It’s rated PG-13.
GIFTED is shown each evening at 7:30 and 9:30.
There will be an early show on Friday at 4:00, and matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 and 4:00.
Thanks for your continued support of the Varsity Theatre where movies matter.
