Sunday Movie Club
Sunday November 19, 2017
2:00 PM until 5:00 PM
Back for its second season, mark your calendars to travel with us--through the magic of movies--to Europe, Australia, China, Mexico, India.... All without leaving town. On two Sundays in November, December, January and February 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 films are scheduled as follows:
November 19, ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, from 1930. Based on possibly the most famous book about the First World War, which ended on November 11, 1918. The film rights were bought by Universal Studios and the director, Lewis Milestone used thousands of German army veterans as extras to make the film as realistic as possible. It was considered a truthful account of the war by most critics. Nominated for four Oscars, it won for Best Movie and Best Director. A true classic.
2 hrs. 37 min.
