Friday, May 29th at 6:30 and 8:45 p.m. - American Sniper (2014) Starring Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Luke Grimes, Kyle Gallner, Jake McDorman, and Ben Reed; Rated R; 134 minutes; Presented with captions for the hearing impaired.
In the aftermath of 9/11, Chris Kyle decides to serve his country by becoming a Navy SEAL. Once deployed, Chris' reputation as a sniper who never misses makes him a legend among his fellow troops, and earns him the moniker "The Devil of Ramadi" from his enemies. With a substantial bounty on his head, Kyle makes it his personal mission to take out a sadistic Iraqi soldier known as "The Butcher," as well as an elusive enemy marksman with a skill to rival his own. The closer he gets to achieving his goals during repeat tours of duty, however, the more fellow soldiers he sees die, and the further he drifts from his wife and their two children back home. It all leads up to a tense rooftop gunfight in a raging sandstorm -- one that convinces the sniper once and for all to make his family his top priority. Unfortunately, all is not well as Kyle struggles to make the transition back to civilian life, but he discovers that helping his fellow veterans is an effective way to do good and make peace with his wartime experiences.
