Movie night at the community centre

The Peter Lougheed Community Centre is the hub of many and varied activities

The Peter Lougheed Community Centre is the hub of many and varied activities, not the least of which is the place to watch a really good movie.

A movie is now being shown at the community centre on the fourth Tuesday of every month.

“We show the movie in the supper auditorium. It’s a really good deal. You get pop and popcorn for $5. We have good sound and quality,” said Director of Community Services, Peter Stenstrom. “The movies we chose to show are family friendly. We won’t show anything over PG13.”

This month’s movie is The Hunger Games, Catching Fire.

(Preview of movie taken from website) A year after winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and her partner, Peeta Mellark must go on what is known as the Victor’s Tour wherein they visit all the districts.

But before leaving, Katniss is visited by President Snow who fears that Katniss defied him a year ago during the games when she chose to die with Peeta. With both Katniss and Peeta declared the winners, it is fueling a possible uprising.

President Snow tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger. But unfortunately she fails to do that. So Snow decides to enact what is known as the Quarter Quell, the right to make a change to the Hunger Games, which he is allowed to do every 25 years.

He decides to hold an edition of the Hunger Games wherein previous winners will compete again.

Their mentor Haymitch thinks their best chance to survive is form an alliance with some of the others. They decide to align themselves with Finnick and his partner, Mags.

But Snow is secretly hoping Katniss will be killed.
