Friday Night Flicks: The Fantastic Mr. Fox

Friday, April 16th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Fantastic Mr. Fox movie posterThe visually ravishing animated movie The Fantastic Mr. Fox follows a fox, voiced by George Clooney and dressed in a natty brown corduroy suit, as he cheerfully and recklessly takes his thieving ways a little too far and brings down the wrath of some sour-faced poultry farmers on his family and friends. Based on the fabulous book by children's author Roald Dahl (who wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach), every corner of the screen crackles with visual invention and whimsical humor. The top-notch vocal cast create vivid personalities that perfectly mesh with the movie's lush colors and luscious textures. Fantastic Mr. Fox is an off-beat gem, a giddy mix of adult emotional issues, wild animal behavior, and childlike delight. Rated: PG.

Theater of the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s: The Plays

Wednesday, April 14th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

The thirties through the fifties represent a great period of American theatrical history. The influence of and reaction to the Great Depression is evident in the work of William Saroyan. The forties saw the talent of three great playwrights emerge who dominated the theater, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, and Eugene O'Neil. The 1950s saw many of these plays brought to the screen and enjoy a wider American audience. Treat yourself to an evening of theater with actor Stephen Collins as he performs a variety of monologues from some of America’s best loved plays.

Please register in person, online, or by phone at (203)265-6754.
