Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around here! It's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is the classic, Sleepless In Seattle
Staring Tom Hanks as Sam, who's now a single father after he losses his wife to cancer. Not knowing what to do, he moved his son Jonah and himself half way across America from Chicago to Seattle for a fresh start. 


On Christmas Eve, Jonah calls into a radio talk show that's giving out life advice. When he tells Dr. Marsha Fieldstone about his dad and losing his mother, Dr. Marsha persuades Jonah to get Sam on the air. At that exact same moment, Annie Reed (Meg Ryan) is in Baltimore with her new fiance spending the holiday with family telling them of their engagement. 


In the car, on the way to visit more family Annie hears Sam on the radio and instantly feels a connection toward him. She's never met him and has never seen him. From then on out she has a fascination with him and wanting to meet him. As time goes on, she finds herself doing things she didn't think she would and with fate giving her and Sam a little push....
