Friday Classic Movie Matinee

Join us on Friday afternoons at 1:00 p.m. for the showing of a great classic movie.

Come join us on Friday, July 31st, for our last Gregory Peck film, THE VALLEY OF DECISION, which is set in Pittsburgh in the late 19th century. It tells the story of a young Irish house maid (Greer Garson) who falls in love with the son (Gregory Peck) of her employer, a local steel mill owner. The romance between the two is endangered when her family and friends, all steel mill workers, go on strike against his father.

All are invited to join us in August for our month devoted to Doris Day films. The first film, on Friday, August 7th, is a 1956 Alfred Hitchcock film, THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH. In this film, Ms. Day stars with Jimmy Stewart.

On Friday, August 14th, come join us for PILLOW TALK, 1959 romantic comedy starring Doris Day and Rock Hudson.

On Friday, August 21st, we’ll be showing CALAMITY JANE, a 1953 musical that is loosely based on the life of a famous Wild-Western heroine and explores an alleged romance between her and Wild Bill Hickok. The film stars Doris Day as Jane and Howard Keel as Wild Bill.

And on Friday, August 28th, all are invited to join us for our last movie in “Doris Day” month.  In MOVE OVER DARLING, a 1963 comedy film, Ms. Day stars with James Garner and Polly Bergen.

We’re also looking forward to September when we’ll be featuring comedies with the Marx Brothers

We hope to see you every Friday.  Oh, and there will be popcorn!

August Book Discussion–The 100 Year Old Man…

Join us on August 11th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Jumped Out the Window and Disappeared, by Jonas Jonasson.

100 Year Old Man Who Jumped Out the Window

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested (and he’d like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a death by elephant).–
