hunger gamesThe Bologna Performing Arts Center is presenting the film, The Hunger Games, on the Delta and Pine Land Theatre main stage of the Bologna Performing Arts Center on Sunday, July 8, 2012 at 2:30pm.

In a not-too-distant future, each year two young representatives from each of the country’s twelve districts are selected to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast on live television. The participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest match. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

Tickets are $5 and may be purchased by calling the ticket office (662.846.4626) or online at

The film is rated PG-13.
