Join us for Movie Night at the Malden Public Library on Wednesday, September 24th, from 6:00-8:00pm. We will be showing a recent film starring Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Dennis Leary, and Frank Langella.
On NFL draft day, Sonny Weaver (Costner) has the chance to save the Cleveland Browns football team when he can make a trade for the number one draft pick or go with the longshot underdog player.
Richard Roeper describes the film as “a human drama sprinkled with a number of laughs,” and The Boston Globe writes that “Costner…has made the sports genre his own.”
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.)
The children’s room closes at 6 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
