Movies Worth Watching

The Matrix (1999)

July 12 & 13 | 7pm | $5 | 14A, Violent Scenes | 136 min

One of the most exhilarating sci-fi/action movies of the 1990s. The film takes place in a universe run by computers using human beings as batteries for bio-electrical energy. This "people power" fuels the artificial intelligence known as The Matrix, which has created a virtual reality to make its inhabitants think they are living happy, creative productive lives. But in reality, they are only providing the energy that keeps The Matrix going. There are, however, a few human beings — including Morpheus (Fishburne) and Trinity (Moss) — who have broken free from The Matrix and are searching to destroy it, recruiting Neo (Reeves) along the way.
