Hollywood has produced thought-provoking documentaries about warfare in distant galaxies and the ramifications of spending a weekend with one’s deceased boss, it rarely delves into the equally fascinating tales of real people. Explore the secret life of supermarkets with today's Groupon: for $8 you get two tickets to the film Ready, Set, Bag!, a documentary that follows the quest of eight hopefuls competing to win the title of Best Grocery Bagger in the United States (up to a $17 value). Your Groupon also includes a $1 donation to the Harvesters Community Food Network. The film will be screened at Tivoli Cinemas on Pennsylvania Avenue. Choose from the following nine showtimes:
- Friday, March 25, at 2:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m., or 7:15 p.m.
- Saturday, March 26, at 2:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m., or 7:15 p.m.
- Sunday, March 27, at 2:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m., or 7:15 p.m. .
Ready, Set, Bag! documents the quests of eight state-champion grocery baggers as they prepare for the National Grocers Association’s competition for Best Bagger, held every February in Las Vegas. As each contestant trains for the big event and brings order to a chaotic universe one egg carton on top at a time, their life stories and infectious love of what they do will thaw the frozen caveman hearts of any viewer.
One dollar from each Groupon will also be donated to the Harvesters Community Food Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger. The organization will use each dollar received to continue serving as many as 66,000 people every week.
