Join us for Movie Night on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, from 6:00-8:00pm.   We will be showing a recent movie based on the book Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, (also referred to as Love, Simon).  The film stars Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, and Katherine Langford.

“Simon Spier keeps a huge secret from his family, his friends, and all of his classmates: he’s gay. When that secret is threatened, Simon must face everyone and come to terms with his identity.”

The Boston Globe writes, “Love, Simon is a sweet, modern romantic comedy that manages to channel the teen movie classics [and] it’s also a deeply empathetic story about a teenager who’s forced to come out to a community of loved ones.”  Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 92% rating and CinemaScore gives it and A+ rating.

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 (110 min.)
