Monday Morning Movie Musings — Mondays, 10:00 am. Similar to a book discussion group, after watching selected movies at home, we will have a chance to get together at the Senior Center and share thoughts with other movie fans.  The wide range discussion is led by the participants.  Join us for our current series: A close look at Academy nominated or winning films through the directors' eyes.

  • May 8 — Sounder (1972) — The Morgans, a family of poor black sharecroppers in the Depression-plagued South, struggle to find enough to eat despite the help their hunting dog, Sounder.
  • May 22 — Man on Wire (2008) — Using actual footage from the event seamlessly mingled with new re-enactments, filmmaker James Marsh masterfully recreates high-wire daredevil Philippe Petit's 1974 stunt: performing acrobatics on a thin wire strung between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.
