Here's the truth: Millions of Americans go hungry every day, and millions of pounds of edible food are thrown away by grocery stores every day. In Dive!, filmmaker Jeremy Seifert tries to reconcile the two. The movie shows Seifert and his friends jumping into supermarket Dumpsters and finding an abundance of perfectly edible meat, bread, fruits and vegetables. And in a classic Michael Moore-esque move, Seifert goes to the corporate offices of supermarket chains asking execs why wasting food is more profitable than feeding the hungry. 7:30 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse, Mason, 531 South Mason Road. For information, call 281-398-5454 or visit www.drafthouse.com/mason. $7 to $9.
