Another Harvest Moon is a sensitive drama about four elderly Americans coping with life in a nursing home. Frank (Ernest Borgnine), Ella (Anne Meara), Alice (Doris Roberts) and June (Piper Laurie) gather each morning for a game of cards. They have become like family to one another, offering unyielding support, constant bickering and strong opinions about life, death and everything in between.

The VIP screening is at 6:30pm and there will be pre-film reception beginning at 5pm. They will receive Lifetime Achievement Awards after the film and there will also be a book signing.
