Monday Matinee: The Searchers

Searchers movie posterMonday, August 25th at 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Now showing favorite films...in the cool comfort of our air-conditioned Community Room. All are welcome, no registration required!

If John Ford is the greatest Western director, The Searchers is arguably his greatest film, at once a grand outdoor spectacle and a film about one man's troubling moral codes, a big-screen adventure of the 1950s that anticipated the complex themes and characters that would dominate the 1970s. Not rated.

Now showing favorite films...in the cool comfort of our air-conditioned Community Room. All are welcome, no registration required!

Nominated for several Oscars, Some Like It Hot ended up the biggest moneymaking comedy up to 1959. Full of hilarious set pieces and movie in-jokes, it has not tarnished with time and in fact seems to get better with each passing year. Not rated.
