Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 8th at 4:20pm for Captain America: Civil War at the AMC Loews Uptown 1 . Look for Brian F. wearing a “Welcome to Night Vale” t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Marvels “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity.

The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two campsone led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Starks surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
