Friday Night Flicks Presents: You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

Friday, March 4th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger movie posterYou Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is classic Woody Allen — an ensemble cast of brilliant actors, a timeless story that could be set virtually anywhere and crisp writing and direction that neither lollygags or rushes. As with most recent Woody films, there is no Woody character here, in other words a central neurotic male role that he would have played when younger. And as with most recent films, it's a bit hard to tell where the comedy ends and the drama begins; they're swirled together throughout. If you like Woody, this is a must-see. Rated R.

Friday Night Flicks Presents: Megamind

Friday, February 25th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Megamind movie posterMegamind is the most brilliant super-villain the world has ever known...and the least successful. Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imaginable way - Each attempt, a colossal failure thanks to the caped superhero known as "Metro Man," until the day Megamind actually defeats him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans. Suddenly, the fate of Metro City is threatened when a new villain arrives and chaos runs rampant, leaving everyone to wonder: Can the world's biggest "mind" actually be the one to save the day? Rated PG.
