Matinee in the Cafe!
Friday March 24, 2017
Stop by the Second Chapter Cafe and join other adults to watch a different film each week! No registration required.
This week's selection is Fences. Denzel Washington directed and stars in this adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which centers on a black garbage collector named Troy Maxson in 1950s Pittsburgh. Bitter that baseball's color barrier was only broken after his own heyday in the Negro Leagues, Maxson is prone to taking out his frustrations on his loved ones. Both Washington and co-star Viola Davis won Tonys for their performances in the 2010 revival of the play.
Run time: 133 minutes
