First CineGrand Film: Crazy Rich Asians (Thursday Matinee)

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Grand
165 Main Street, Ellsworth, Maine, 04605

On Wednesday February 13th at 6:00 pm and a special captioned matinee on Thursday, February 14th at 1 pm, The Grand continues its first movie of the month “First CineGrand” series of recent well-reviewed films sponsored by First Advisors and First National Bank and presented on the giant Coastal Eye Care with the critically acclaimed, audience beloved return of the romantic comedy- “Crazy Rich Asians.” The film follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things. With Awkwafina, Harry Shum, Jr., Ken Jeong and Nico Santos. (2018. US 2 hrs. Directed by Jon M. Chu. PG-13.) Tickets for this General Admission presentation are $8 for Adults, $7 for Seniors/Students (15 and under) and $6 Grand Members (as well as Matinee screenings).
