Film club concludes fall screening series
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Community Classic Film Club will screen it’s final film, “Roman Holiday,” in the fall season’s screenings on Dec. 5, from 6-8:30 p.m., at the Ilsley Library’s Community Meeting Room.
“Roman Holiday” (1953), is the story of a princess who escapes her royal bubble to find freedom and romance in Rome. Audrey Hepburn won the Academy Award for Best Actress in her starring role. Gregory Peck costarred as an enterprising reporter. Roman Holiday also won Oscars for best costume design and best story.
This concludes the club’s fall theme of “The Pursuit of Happiness.” Earlier this fall they screened “The Joy Luck Club” (1993), “Marty” (1955), and “A Raisin in the Sun” (1961).
As always Thursday evening’s film will be followed by good coffee, popcorn and home baked chocolate chip cookies along with interesting discussions and a community spirit.
