EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Sunday Movie Club - All the President's Men

Sunday December 2, 2018
2:00 PM until 5:00 PM


Back for its third season, mark your calendars and join us to view a variety of great movies.  On two Sundays in November, December, January and February and March we will be showing a feature length movie at the Library at 2 o’clock.   A wonderful opportunity to escape for a couple of hours and share a movie with friends and neighbors.  After each movie there will be time to socialize and discuss the film.  There is no charge for the event.   Feel free to bring your own (non-alcoholic) refreshments.  The timely topic of journalism is the theme of our first four movies.  We look forward to seeing you at our screenings, as follows:

December 2, ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, Investigative reporter Bob Woodward is back in the news with his 19th book “Fear,” a tale of Trump. His first book, co-authored in 1974 with fellow Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein, remains a classic political thriller and journalism textbook. The eponymous film “All The President’s Men” (1976) is even better, winning Oscars for Best Screenplay, Best Sound and Best Art Direction. The action races through the hurdles faced by the two young reporters as they crack the Watergate burglary and bring down President Nixon. The casting is superb with Robert Redford playing Woodward and Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein. Jason Robards wins the best supporting actor Oscar as Ben Bradlee, the courageous and debonair executive editor described by his two ace reporters as looking like an “international jewel thief.” Alan J. Paluka’s direction of the screenplay by William Goldman is riveting and perhaps more important, faithful to the truth. No Fake News here. Just what may be the best movie about journalism ever.  2 hours 18 minutes
