When Cinema Center sold out the crowd pleasing Hunt for the Wilderpeople at the inaugural Hobnobben Film Festival, we knew we had to bring it back!
We are so excited to premiere the film while you can grab delicious food from the Vietnummy and Bravas trucks across the street in our parking lot at the corner of Clay and Berry.
The fun starts at 5 and goes until 8.
Cinema Center will screen Hunt for the Wilderpeople at 6:00 and 8:15 in our theater. Food service will be ongoing in the parking lot. Beat the heat with our comfortable air conditioning and delicious beer and wine in our lobby and Spectator Lounge!
Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a great fun and funny film, in the tradition of The Goonies and Stand By Me. Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way.
"A deliciously good time at the movies." - Hollywood Reporter.
"Neil proves compellingly gruff as a reluctant father figure, though it's the trash-talking, family-craving ten-year-old Dennison who steals the show, exuding a wacko, wounded attitude rooted in Ricky's backwoods Rambo-Scarface-Mad Max reveries." - Village Voice.
"It's off-beat in all the best ways, has fantastic actors all delivering fantastic performances, and is a uproarious adventure with endless heart." -Cinemablend.com.
101 mins., Rated PG-13.
