Movie Night: 6:00-8:30pm

September 27, 2017 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm Maccario Room

Join us for Movie Night on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, from 6:00-8:30pm. We will be showing a recent movie based on the DC Comics superhero, Wonder Woman. The film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Robin Wright and is directed by Patty Jenkins.

Before she became Wonder Woman, Diana (Gadot) was the princess of the Amazons and a trained warrior on a remote island paradise. When a pilot (Pine) crashes his plane on the shore, Diana learns of a raging war in the outside world. When she leaves her home, she discovers her full powers and her destiny as Wonder Woman.

Film Comment writes, “Wonder Woman is a spectacular delight,” and Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 92% approval rating. RogerEbert.com writes, “Gadot wonderfully inhabits the mix of curiosity, sincerity, badassery, and compassion that has undergirded Wonder Woman since the beginning…she evokes a classic heroism.”

This film is free and open to the public and is accessible. Movie times are approximate. Please call the Malden Public Library at 781-324-0218 for more information. Rated PG-13 (141 min.)
