Cinematique Presents: "Dallas Buyers Club"
Note: Tuesday, and Wednesday Nights Canceled Due to Weather, tickets honored for later showings
Nominated for six Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Matthew McConaughey) and, and Best Supporting Actor (Jared Leto), Dallas Buyers Club tells the story of real-life Texan Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive.
These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic in the U.S. and Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, took matters in his own hands. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with a band of outcasts and established a hugely successful "buyers' club." Their struggle for dignity and acceptance is a unique story of transformative power. (R, 1hr, 57min.)
