Mary Pickford Theatres will present a screening of the new film "Labor Day" at the next Parent Movie Morning on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at UltraStar Cinemas Mary Pickford at 10 a.m. Here is a great chance for parents to see this highly anticipated film starring Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and Gattlin Griffith. Parent movie morning features dimmed lighting, reduced volume and changing facilities in the auditorium.
Oscar-nominated filmmaker Jason Reitman ("Juno") brings a sensitive love story to the screen with "Labor Day." The film features the story of a reclusive widow Adele (Kate Winslet) and her son (Gattlin Griffith). After a shopping trip they give a stranger in need, Frank (Josh Brolin), a ride home. Soon they discover Frank is an escaped convict and the events of a long Labor Day weekend will shape them for the rest of their lives.
"Labor Day" debuted at the Telluride Film Festival in August. The film was released on Friday, Jan. 31 and is competing with the romantic comedy "That Awkward Moment" and "At Middleton" for box office dollars.
"Labor Day" is rated R for sexual content and language throughout and has a run-time of one hour and 34 minutes.
UltraStar Cinemas - Mary Pickford Theatre is located at 36-850 Pickfair Street, Cathedral City, CA 92234 (see map)

Whatever your movie choice this week, please remember your movie theater etiquette: silence your cellphones and no texting, please don't talk during the film and remove your children if they become a distraction to other audience members. Don't forget that laughing, crying and cheering are always approved behavior and even encouraged.
