Hunger-“Y” ?

If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t wait too long – The Hunger Games is playing at Raleighwood, but not for much longer!

If you have seen it, it’s worth seeing it again – there is so much you pick up the second, and third times.   Little nuances, some lines you didn’t catch the first time.

A lot of people find it reminds them of other movies – what do YOU think it reminds you of?  Let us know.

Do you know what inspired Collins to write it? Did you catch any of the mistakes?

The first 10 people to  answer this question will WIN TWO FREE MOVIE PASSES to Raleighwood. Email your answer and contact info to: with Hunger Contest as the subject line…. good luck to all!

There a mistake in the addition of the number of tributes/people in the Game – they say they are 24 total, but when you add up the number killed and the survivors in the movie, it comes to WHAT NUMBER?

Reminder- RW Menus specials – Wednesday –  99¢ side salad with each entree order; Thursday – 99¢ Cinderella Ice Cream Sundae with each entree order.
