Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will present the comedy-drama movie “The Leisure Seeker” Friday through Thursday.

The movie stars Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland as John and Ella Robina, a couple who have shared a wonderful life for more than 50 years.

Ella suffers from cancer and John has Alzheimer’s; yearning for adventure, they decide to “kidnap” themselves from their adult children and their doctors and undertake a forbidden vacation of rediscovery. 

Entertainment.ie says of the movie, “The film finds joy in the small things: nice parks, ice cream, pictures of children, and a good burger, a stop and smell the roses story that’s sad and funny and lovely and sad, switching back and forth without every losing its overall relaxed vibe….Mirren and Sutherland are wonderful as the aging couple who have yet to learn things about life, even at this late stage.”

The film runs 112 minutes and is rated R (for some sexual material).

Admission is $7, $6 for students and military and $5 for Capitol Friends.

Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol Theatre box office (315-337-6453) and online at www.romecapitol.com.

Show times are Friday and Saturday at 4 and 7 p.m., Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m. and Monday-Thursday at 7 p.m. The Friday 4 and Sunday 1 show times will include captions for the hearing-impaired.
