The movie’s called “Diminished Capacity.” But officials at the CineVegas film festival and the Springs Preserve hope a big crowd will turn out for a screening of the comedy at 7:30 p.m. today at the preserve’s amphitheater.
“Diminished Capacity” stars Matthew Broderick as a newspaper editor who’s been demoted following a debilitating concussion. Looking for answers, he makes a pilgrimage to visit his senile uncle (Alan Alda) in Missouri and reconnects with pals, including his high school sweetheart (Virginia Madsen).
Director Terry Kinney’s comedy has played in other cities, but today’s screening will be the only chance for Southern Nevadans to see it on the big screen, according to CineVegas officials.
General admission tickets are $10. “Dinner and a Movie” packages are $25 per person; they include reserved seating for the movie and a 6:30 p.m. pre-show dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s Springs Preserve Cafe. Tickets are available at the Springs Preserve box office, or online at www.cinevegas.com.
Outside food and beverages are not permitted. Low chairs are allowed; moviegoers are encouraged to bring blankets.
