Join us at the Rio Theatre for a film series featuring some of the nominated films and performances being honoured by the Golden Globes, including STEVE JOBS, GRANDMA, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, SHAUN THE SHEEP, THE HATEFUL 8, TRAINWRECK, and LOVE AND MERCY. On January 10, we will be hosting a *free* Golden Globes 2016 broadcast screening and party at 5:00 pm.
Lily Tomlin (Golden Globe nominee, Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy) shines as cantankerous, alcoholic, and utterly ornery Elle, a woman who is about to embark on an unexpected road trip with her granddaughter, Sage.. Elle’s just gotten through breaking up with her girlfriend when Sage unexpectedly shows up needing money. Temporarily broke, Grandma Elle and Sage spend the day trying to get their hands on the cash as their unannounced visits to old friends and flames end up rattling skeletons and digging up secrets.
