“May the odds be ever in your favor.”

Jennifer Lawrence Digital Painting” by Maartje van Hoorn
Jennifer Lawrence became the star she is today when she made the role of Katniss Everdeen her own in this hit film. Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, this action, adventure, sci-fi, thriller tells the story of an oppressed girl who rises to the pinnacle of her nation.
Every year two young contestants from each of the nation’s twelve district are selected by lottery to participate in the year’s biggest event, The Hunger Games, that is part entertainment, part brutal retribution for a past rebellion. The televised competition pits twenty-four young participants against each other in an bloody battle to the death while the nation watches. Katniss volunteers to save her younger sister from the battle and she and her partner join the fight. Whoever survives the blood bath is declared the winner.
The run-away hit written by Suzanne Collins is an exciting thrill ride and a great movie for the Yukon’s Sunday evening viewing. Over the years, our movie fan crowds have enjoyed a selection of Hollywood’s best movies,popular films, under-the-radar hits, and movies that are tailor-made for seeing in a bar, like Patrick Swayze’s Roadhouse.
This month’s selection might leave some hungry for more. At the Yukon you can have your pick of any of the delicious items off our menu. We’ve got eleven juicy burgers to choose from, including our chicken and fish burgers.
And our bartenders are there to quench your thirst throughout the movie. Join us on Sunday, May 5that 7:20pm for an evening of The Hunger Games at the Yukon Tavern.
