Friday Night at the Movies: Big

Discussion Leader: Don and Caryl Safford

If you saw the recent Tower Bell article, you know we have a new twist this year, the 3 + 2 + 2 series, featuring two movies from three actors:  Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep. 

On September 20, we lead off with Big, a 1988 fantasy comedy representing some of Tom Hanks’ earlier work.  It’s the story of Josh, a 12-year-old New Jersey boy who, after being turned away from a carnival ride for being too short, makes a wish “to be big” at a fortune-telling machine…..and gets his wish. 

Also starring Elizabeth Perkins and Robert Loggia, and directed by Penny Marshall, Big was nominated for 2 Oscars and garnered other film awards, including the Golden Globe for Best Actor for Hanks. 

Soft drinks, popcorn, dessert and coffee will be provided; a $2 donation is suggested.

Sign-up begins September 1 in the church office or using the form below.
