Lunch and a Flick

Wednesday, Aug. 7, at noon, at the Groton Senior Center

Argo with Pizza Lunch

A gripping movie based on actual event which unfolded in 1979 after Iran revolutionaries invade the American embassy. Six American staff members escaped and hid in the house of the Canadian Ambassador. To sneak these six out of Tehran, the CIA uses the cover of a Hollywood film crew scouting a location for a science fiction movie. Movie stars Ben Affleck and is rated R for language and some violent images. Pizza provided by Right at Home Care! Nonperishable items for Loaves & Fishes accepted. Call 978-448-1170 to sign-up.
