It’s our pick for “A Movie That Makes You Think!” and we’re giving you two choices to see it! Join us Thursday night or Saturday after Mardi Gras in Concrete!

About the Movie
When Hap Anderson, a widowed 82 year old Minnesota farmer who thinks he's still quite the ladies' man sells his family farm he finds himself adrift and staring a short future in the face. Motivated by the possibility of showing up with an old flame and impressing his old army buddies, he sets out to attend his 65th WWII reunion in California with his unemployed and unreasonably self-confident and entitled granddaughter.


Together, each with their own issues and conflicting agendas, they head west in a dilapidated Winnebago. Encountering oddball tourist attractions and eccentric characters, they find themselves in seemingly impossible situations with only each other for support.


From finding a place that will cash a Travelers Cheque to enjoying a cup of instant coffee, as the journey progresses so does their relationship and they begin to understand and appreciate each other as individuals while discovering that their issues are ageless and that family really matters.  With typical understated Midwestern humor and restraint, 'Farmer of the Year' delicately blends the comedy and drama of life.

Mardi Gras in Concrete • March 2

Once a month, we bring you a movie you may not be familiar with, but we think you’ll enjoy. These are typically independent films, created by people who are passionate about their work but don’t have the financial backing of the Hollywood production companies.

Without all the hype and splashy special effects of your typical blockbuster, these independent movies are usually more thought-provoking. They’re the kind of film you’ll be talking about and thinking about for awhile.


Please plan to stay after the movie if you can, and share your thoughts. It’s fascinating to hear what others think -- you might be surprised that the person sitting next to you has a whole different perspective.
