We are wrapping up our World War One series this week with one last film and two final presentations. Tonight’s (Thursday, November 16) film is The Lost Batallion, set in the closing months of the war and based on the true story of Major Charles Whittlesey and the 308th. The battle scenes will be more realistic than was the case in our previous two movies (both made in the 1930s). The show begins at 6:30.
More WWI events in the coming days, with a book signing and an artists’ reception also at hand for your enjoyment. Here are the details.
Tonight (Thursday, November 9) we’re screening A Farewell to Arms from 1932. Starring Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes, this Best Picture nominee is based on Ernest Hemingway’s famous novel. Wartime love – so many stories there, and this is one of the best. Show time is 6:30.
