Movie Night: Wed., Nov. 29th: 6:00-8:30pm

Join us for Movie Night on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, from 6:00-8:30pm.  We will be showing a movie about the War for The Planet of the Apes. The film stars Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson.

“Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind.”

Newsweek writes, “[the film is]” a consistently intelligent, morally thoughtful and often beautiful picture” and Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 93% approval rating.  The Washington Post writes, “[it] may have the body of an action film, but it has the soul of an art-house drama and the brains of a political thriller.”

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 (140 min.)
