Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Apr 5th at 7:15pm for Adventureland at the Coolidge Corner Theatre . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
A funky, self-professedly funtastic Pennsylvania amusement park, Adventureland appears to be the bane of recent college graduate James Brennans (Jesse Eisenberg) existence. He previously had big plans to spend the summer on a life-altering trek through Europe that would initiate him into real adult life. But when his family suffers an economic downturn in the middle of the Reagan 80s, James only summer trip is straight to a minimum wage job manning a game booth so existentially bankrupt, no one is even allowed to win the “giant-ass” stuffed panda. Welcome to ADVENTURELAND, where the worst job imaginable is about to inadvertently turn into the summer that changes everything.”
