Mine 9 at the Strand Theatre
May 17 @ 7:00 pm - May 19 @ 2:00 pm$10
FILM: Mine 9
Mining country in Appalachia has been declared The Devils Playground. A close-knit group of veteran miners, all friends and family, commence what would be a normal days work — except today a rookie, the son of one of our veterans, joins them the god-son of the section leader, 18 year old Ryan.
With ever growing safety concerns at the mine, Zeke (Section Leader and longtime coal mining veteran), struggles with the correct course of action, weighing on one hand the safety of his men, and on the other, the need to earn a steady wage in an economically depressed region. Today, however, fate takes matters into its own hands when a huge methane explosion rips through the mine.
Smoke engulfs the men, forcing them to rely on nothing more than, brains, brawn, and faulty self-rescuers (oxygen tanks that afford them one hour of air). Mine 9 is the story of the struggle for survival against all odds; men trapped in hell as the result of exploitation, greed, and circumstance.
Come see this new, feature-length film by West Virginia native Eddie Mensore at the Strand May 17-19. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. Show times are May 17 at 7 pm, 18 at 2 pm and 7 pm, and 19 at 2 pm.
