Rwanda: Argo and Life of Pi Screens Today At Dream Hotel Muhima

Dream Apple Hotel on Muhima road will every Thursday screen movies starting today. Being the first night of this development, they'll screen Life of PI and Argo, both Oscar nominated movies.

Life of PI is based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel. Pi Patel finds himself adrift in the Pacific Ocean on a 26-foot lifeboat with a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard Parker all fighting for survival. The film is based on an adapted screenplay by David Magee, and stars Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Gérard Depardieu, Tabu, and Adil Hussain.

Argo, on the other hand, shows the 1979 incident when the American Embassy in Iran was invaded by Iranian revolutionaries and several Americans were taken hostage. However six manage to escape to the official residence of the Canadian Ambassador and the CIA is eventually ordered to get them out of the country. Ben Affleck, John Goodman Bryan Caranston and Alan Erkin are the stars.

Dream Apple Hotel is located on Muhima Road opposite Sadolin paints. Movies start showing at 7pm.
