OAK GROVE, La. — The Historic Fiske Theatre in Oak Grove, La. has announced it will host a Senior’s Only screening of the hit new motion picture WAR HORSE, January 26, 2012 at 2 p.m. for a discounted price of $5.50.
“As a community theatre it is our goal to be a positive part of our community,” Adam Holland, President, Holland Entertainment said. “WAR HORSE is a movie that we feel the senior citizens of our area will enjoy, and understand that our usual show times may make it difficult for them to attend, so we felt offering this special screening to the seniors of Northeast Louisiana would be a nice gesture.”
Tina Bankston, Activity Director at Carroll Nursing Home in Oak Grove, brought the idea to Holland as something her residents would enjoy, and the idea was quickly bought into by Brenda Hagan with the West Carroll Council on Aging and Cherie McCalpin activity director at the W.C. Memorial Care Center as an event that their constituents would enjoy as well.
Steven Spielberg’s “WAR HORSE,” an epic adventure for audiences of all ages. Set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War, “War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets—British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter—before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.
WAR HORSE will play at the usual Fiske Theatre show times of 7 p.m. January 26-27 and January 28 at 2:30 p.m.
The Fiske Theatre is owned by the West Carroll Chamber of Commerce and operated by Holland Entertainment LLC of Oak Grove.
