Jack Reacher movie posterFriday, July 12th at 6 p.m. in the Community Room

After a gunman kills five people with just six shots, all of the evidence points to the suspect who is in custody. But when he is interrogated, the suspect claims his innocence and tells the police to "Get Jack Reacher!" Reacher sees the story on the news and comes to town in order to confirm the man's guilt, but instead turns up an unexpected enemy with a secret and a skill for violence. Rated PG-13.
