ArgoPlayed during Winter 2012
Based on true events, Argo chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis-the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.
The Crescent Theater can no longer allow Kickstarter tickets to be used at all times. We will however accept them every Monday night until everyone has used their tickets. If you have T-shirts or posters coming they can be picked up in the lobby at anytime. The same applies to film strips and concessions. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. We look forward to seeing you all soon. Thanks, Max
