SUNDAY CINEMA: 15:17 to Paris (2018)

SUNDAY CINEMA

FREE movies for adults @ the Castro Valley Library!  

Join us for a showing of 15:17 to Paris (2018)

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris, an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends' lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board. Directed by Clint Eastwood and casting the actual heroes in the lead roles.  Rated PG-13, Run time 120 minutes.
