The Grand’s Weekly CineGrand series– a series of the best of the recent films, from both the Hollywood studios and independents, all playing Tuesday at 7:30 pm and Wednesdays at 3:30 pm at The Grand in Ellsworth- continues its new Summer season on Tuesday, May 9th and a special closed-captioned screening on Wednesday May 10th with the Oscar™-nominated “Captain Fantastic.” Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Viggo Mortensen in an Oscar™-nominated performance) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults. But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he’s taught them. With Frank Langella, Steve Zahn, Kathryn Hahn and Missy Pyle. (2016. USA 1 hr, 59 min. Directed by Matt Ross. R.) Tickets for this General Admission presentation are $8 for Adults, $7 for Seniors/Students and $6 for both Grand Members and Matinee Admissions.
