Senior Classic Movie

Come and enjoy a classic movie with friends at the library. On Friday, January 3rd we will show a a  classic movie from 1941 starring Veronica Lake and Joel McCrea.

"Hollywood director Joel McCrea, tired of churning out lightweight comedies, decides to make O Brother, Where Art Thou - a serious, socially responsible film about human suffering. After his producers point out that he know nothing of hardship, he hits  the road as a hobo. He finds the lovely Veronica Lake-and more trouble than he ever dreamed of."

Licensing restrictions prevent us from promoting the title of the movie. Call 281-376-4610  for more information.

The movie will be in the Earl Elliott Room from 10:00-12:00 January 3, 2014.

Bring a friend.
