The Friday movie (and dinner, too)
This month’s First Friday at the Movies, starting at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Oct. 6) at Little Washington Theatre, is a classic American western and thriller in one: “Hell or High Water,” starring Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Jeff Bridges. It’s rated R.
It’s the story of unemployed oil and gas worker Toby Howard (Pine), who’s divorced, missing his two sons and losing his ranch to the Texas Midlands Bank. When his brother Tanner Howard (Foster) gets out of prison, they team up to rob agencies of the bank to raise money to pay the loan so that Toby can leave the real estate to his sons. Meanwhile, soon-to-retire Texas Ranger Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges) and partner Alberto Parker (Gil Birmingham) try to anticipate the thieves’ next move.
As usual, admission is $6 and there’s popcorn, candy and water available for purchase at 291 Gay St.
A few steps away at 311 Gay St., in keeping with the movie’s West Texas
theme, Tula’s is offering a special fixed-price pre-theater dinner starting at 5 p.m. and featuring black bean salad, tamales over Mexican rice and dessert ($30), plus select wines and beers for $5. They’re open after the show for cocktails, too.
