“Planters Bank Presents…” Film Series

Planters Bank Presents at the Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – The “Planters Bank Presents…” film series next movie is “Jumanji”. This movie will be shown this Sunday, July 23rd, 2017 at the Roxy Regional Theatre at 2:00pm.

A magical board game unleashes a world of adventure on siblings Peter (Bradley Pierce) and Judy Shepherd (Kirsten Dunst).  While exploring an old mansion, the youngsters find a curious, jungle-themed game called Jumanji in the attic. 

When they start playing, they free Alan Parrish (Robin Williams), who’s been stuck in the game’s inner world for decades.  If they win Jumanji, the kids can free Alan for good — but that means braving giant bugs, ill-mannered monkeys and even stampeding rhinos!
