Catch a free screening of the 2015 film Get Hard. Keep reading – Get Hard is a comedy. Don’t remember when it hit the theatres back in March? Here’s a summary: when obscenely rich hedge-fund manager James (Will Ferrell) is convicted of fraud and sentenced to a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him one month to get his affairs in order. Knowing that he won’t survive more than a few minutes in prison on his own, James desperately turns to Darnell (Kevin Hart) — a black businessman who’s never even had a parking ticket — for help. As Darnell puts James through the wringer, both learn that they were wrong about many things, including each other. Date: Monday, July 27. Time: 10 am.
