Are You a Fan of Action Flicks? This Event May Be Right Up Your Alley, Then

The Statler launches “Movies at The Statler”, a bi-weekly event hosted by Tommy Habeeb taking place on Sunday evenings in April and May, offering a unique twist on the traditional movie night.

Movies at The Statler features an up-close and personal Q&A session with celebrity actors who starred in the night’s featured film. At various times throughout the movie, the celebrities will be interviewed and guests will receive insight from the actors as they pull back the curtain on their roles and share experiences on set during the making of the movie. Celebrities will be available for meet and greets, autographs and photos.

On Sunday, May 26th, we will proudly host actor, Eric Roberts, and screen one of his films, The Expendables. An all-star cast of action-movie icons headline Sylvester Stallone's explosive action thriller about a group of hard-nosed mercenaries who are double-crossed during a treacherous mission. Approached by the shadowy Church (Bruce Willis) to overthrow tyrannical South American dictator General Gaza (David Zayas) and restore order to the troubled island country of Vilena, stoic soldier of fortune Barney Ross (Stallone) rounds up an unstoppable team that includes former SAS soldier Lee Christmas (Jason Statham); martial arts expert Yin (Jet Li); trigger-happy Hale Caesar (Terry Crews); and cerebral demolitions expert Toll Road (Randy Couture).

Traveling to Vilena on a reconnaissance mission with his old pal Christmas, Barney meets their local contact, a cagey guerrilla fighter named Sandra (Giselle Itie), and together, the trio scopes out the landscape. It isn't long before Barney and Christmas have discovered that their actual target is not General Gaza but James Monroe (Eric Roberts), a former CIA operative who has recently gone rogue. When their mission is compromised, Barney and Christmas are forced to flee, leaving Sandra behind to face almost certain death. But, Barney isn't the kind of soldier to abandon a mission, or a hostage…

Trivia and raffle drawings during the Q&A sessions will allow guests the opportunity to win prizes such as Statler hotel and restaurant gift certificates, Statler Ballroom concert tickets, and movie memorabilia. Age restrictions for each event follow regular cinema-rated standards.

At Ashford Apartments in Garland, Texas, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Sunday!
