Let’s Go See a Movie . . . in Downtown Saguache!
Tonight movie lovers can catch this month’s foreign/art film – “He Named Me Malala” – showing at Cozy Castle Cinema at 7 p.m. in downtown Saguache. This critically acclaimed film takes viewers on the journey of the young Pakistani female activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, who has spoken out for the rights of girls, especially the right to education, since she was very young.
The film also recounts how she miraculously survived and has become even more eloquent in her quest after being hunted down and shot by a Taliban gunman as part of the organization’s violent opposition to girls’ education in Pakistan. The title refers to the Afghani folk hero Malalai of Maiwand, after whom her father named her.
If you can’t make it to tonight’s special showing, there’s still lots of great new movies in the New year and the place to come and watch the latest releases is in downtown Saguache! Showing this weekend, January 8 – 10 at Cozy Castle Cinema is the family friendly film, Daddy’s Home (PG-13).
When a divorced guy’s ex-wife re-marries someone way more uptight, he re-enters her life and wreaks havoc. This PG-13 comedy stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.
Brad Taggart (Will Ferrell) is a kindhearted radio executive who wants to be the best possible stepfather to his wife’s (Linda Cardellini) two children. When her freewheeling ex-husband Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) breezes back into town, Brad’s feeling of insecurity quickly develops into an inferiority complex.
As Dusty demonstrates his flair for athletics, home repair and bad-boy charisma, Taggart finds himself in a no-holds-barred battle to one-up his rival and win the approval of his family.
Show times are Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 4 p.m. & 7 p.m.;, and Sunday at 7 p.m. Ticket prices are $7 with children 3 and under free.
